Here are 10 Best Reasons for barbecuing veggie burgers and hot dogs this Independence Day rather than ground-up animal body parts:

n Focusing on traffic and fireworks safety rather than food safety.

n Giving your eyes a break from reading government food warning labels.

n Not sweating nasty E. coli and salmonella bugs if the temperature is too low.

n Not sweating cancer-causing compounds if the barbecue temperature is too high.

n Not wondering about what’s really in that burger or hot dog you’re chewing.

n Giving your body a holiday from saturated fat, cholesterol and hormones.

n Not sweating the animal cruelty and environmental devastation guilt trips.

n Not having to explain to your kids why we feed Rex and eat Babe.

n Distinguishing your Independence Day menu from your friends and neighbors.

n Celebrating a day of independence from the meat industry.

Or how about we just do what we want without lecturing others? You eat your nasty veggie burgers and I'll eat my tasty tasty meat.
