Norwegian parliamentary representative Heidi Greni (SP) shared an article from the website of the Nordic Resistance Movement, a neo-Nazi movement, on Facebook.

Greni shared the article in the comments section of newspaper Nationen’s debate article “Eating less meat is out of the question.” 

The article referred to 18 studies that establish that meat-eaters have better mental health than vegans and vegetarians, newspaper VG writes.

Greni eventually deleted the post and distanced herself from the neo-Nazi organization the Nordic Resistance Movement. She said that she intended to share Dagsavisen’s article on the same topic.

“Of course, I distance myself from this organization completely and from all Nazism, homophobia, and racism. Of course, I deleted this post immediately when I was made aware of it, and I regret that I have contributed to spreading articles from an organization I absolutely do not support,” Greni wrote to the newspaper.

  1. No harm done.

    You just have to be careful of sites with political agendas. It is best to cross-check articles against the sources … and to use the sources.

    Back in the States out in the middle of agricultural western Illinois, I used to eat (beef) steak 1 or 2 times a week. Over here, I cannot afford that beyond once a month, if that, although the fish and chicken are often on sale and excellent.

    I was on a heart attack diet until I had a couple of those 4 years ago. Now, when I look at ice cream in my mind’s eye I can see it coating and clogging my heart arteries.

    Still … every few months … :-/ 🙂

    One night a few months ago, I finished off a tub of chocolate (of course) ice cream at midnight and for the next few days the heart was telling me how much it disapproved. :-/

    We are what we eat is literally true. More broccoli and carrots and fresh fruit.

    A *little* animal/dairy fat *is* vital, though, so the article was correct to a point.
