30 Bananas a Day!

we have quite a collection of ar threads here many of which contain some valuable discussions and material. this thread and particularly this regularly updated original post will highlight many of these and hopefully serve as a quick reference.


there is no particular order to the list (though most items are entered following a lifo stack principle). if you have suggestions on other 30bad animal rights threads, you are welcome to post them below.


some links may not work anymore due to the disappearance of the original poster from this forum.

All I can say is:  WOW!

Thank you for putting this together for us! 

I have bookmarked this, will link to it in the Banana Wagon Tour Blog as well. 

Peace, PK

P.S.  It has been featured as well! 

why thank you, pk!

i appreciate the work you've done.


30bad has become a strong point for ar ever since freelee started the speak up for animals category a couple of years ago. she told me back then that she wanted to give people a better reason than just weight-loss to go veg! in the past, i've had ar people sometimes think this is an ar site (even though it isn't) due to the activity here to support animals.


in friendship,



This health and weight loss and AR combination is definitely a two edged sword.  It has worked for me.

Peace, PK

Wow this is fantastic Prad! Very nice round up indeed. This has already come in handy thanks a million.



University PradAnimal. I knew there was a higher reason why I dropped out of my Internet Communications degree.. :) Your an amazing creature Prad Merci...

Can you add Vegan Pets, I know I read a discussion about it recently? Something that covers the ins and outs, what to feed, alternatives, reasons etc

Save the earth? Save the animals? lets be honest folks... does not link for me..

Peace and Galactic Rainbow Symphony coming your way.

hi noha! thx for this.

i've added the vegan dogs and vegan cats threads which contain links to several other vegan pet threads here. if you want a specific one, let me know.

the save the earth ... thread was an excellent one, but unfortunately the creator took off and deleted all his work - most of which was top class! however, i may be able to reconstruct most of it as i did with the vegan dogs - just haven't had time to do so yet.

in friendship,


thats awesome & a hell of a lot of work

thanks prad - ill look through it tonight  







Prad I have not gone through them all, but from my end atleast the first 3 do not work/link.. Ning a Ling alert..

well it's only partly the ning system's fault. i should have checked more carefully, so thx for spotting all this. at some stage i may just move the links to a different site, so i'm not restricted to ning's mechanisms - that way i'll be able to update things more easily and the access to the threads will still work as well.

i've fixed the links, but just let me know if you find anymore broken ones. thx!

in friendship,
