    Not an irrelevant comment, each generation impacts the next. Any increasing problems with millenials will have an onward affect, on the economy, on their ability to provide food for their own children.

    PS We are supposed to do extensive research before commenting on CUK? Not really what it's for, its just an online chat room. Still, maybe you can convince the moderators. The forum may be rather sparse.

    And it also found that millennial workers take three times more time off work than those aged 55 and over.
    Vegans 'take twice annual sick day total of the average Briton' - Mirror Online
    You're tulipposting on an article about children having insecure access to (any) food with some crap from the mirror newspaper about veganism?

    "Although the reasons for vegans’ high sik (SIC) day count are unclear, the study shows their sick days are on the rise, with two thirds admitting to taking more time off work due to minor illness than in previous years."

    Great article, sounds like it knows entirely factual information. As mentioned in another thread, did you even bother to go find and read the original study yourself and examine the methodology to mull over any flaws within said study?

    Thought not.

    Anybody on this forum remember the old days of this forum when mince-eaters didn't just tulippost badly written junk newspaper articles all day long? Still, suppose admin has to get the ad payments through.


    Note:
    It's good to watch out for any 'reliable studies' to appear here, as the NHS loves to discredit them and rightly so:

    Obviously you haven't eaten any children. Try it and you'll find I'm right.

    It is nonsense as that carcass would make a good stock. So those kids could be left with the impression that nothing useful can be done with it, which is wrong. It's not necessarily a good idea to blend it into chicken nuggets but his "this is rubbish" stance goes against a lot of other stuff he preaches.
