Social mcnuggets - Morgan Spurlock downsizes his 'Super Size' concept for TV.

New show:

Morgan Spurlock, who made himself sick for our sins, eating only McDonald's for a month to spotlight the health risks of fast food consumption in his documentary 'Super Size Me,' is back with a similar gambit — a TV series called '30 Days.' The show, which premieres Wednesday on the FX cable channel, takes the extreme-immersion-as-social-commentary angle in 'Super Size Me' and franchises it out into half-hour segments.

U.S. probes mad cow report

The U.S. government is checking a possible case of mad cow disease in an animal previously cleared of being infected, the Agriculture Department said Friday.

Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns said more tests were needed to confirm the disease, but he emphasized that the animal did not enter the food supply.

Vegan Views Magazine

The magazine is a free download:

Vegan Views is a UK magazine that is independent of the Vegan Society but shares its aims. It was started in 1975 by a group of vegans who wanted to make contact with others interested in creating a more harmonious way of living based on veganism, and to communicate more informally than could be done in the official journal of the Vegan Society. It realises that many vegans feel isolated from society and appreciate contact with, and news and opinions of, other vegans.
