    Default Avocados aren't vegan

    Such a great point brought up in QI.

    I wonder if they contribute to Climate Change as well.

    I might be showing complete ignorance here but what about the toast aspect, specifically yeast. Isn't it a living thing?

    Not once it has been through the toaster . But you are right, and plants are also living things. Why should we avoid eating animals and eat the plants or their children instead? Makes no sense to me.

    Actually, one assumes not once it’s been through the oven, for its initial baking?

    Good point Sarah. But Louise makes a valid point, why is it OK to eat dead plants or dead micororganisms but not dead animals?

    Because that would mean a long walk down from the moral high ground.
