Photo: Mic the Vegan

Free admission, refreshments provided.

A highly visual presentation covering the top myths surrounding a vegan diet. Topics that are covered range from “Vegans can’t get enough protein” to “Cows are the only way to save the planet.” The presentation not only looks at the myths that are used to bring vegans down but also the myths that vegans create. As with any Mic the Vegan content, all significant claims in the presentation will directly cite research. Also true to any Mic the Vegan content, the presentation will be lighthearted and full of bad jokes.
