Vegan event nixed from church for fear of promoting anorexia (ANSA) - Treviso, February 26 - A parish priest in northern Italy has refused to allow a group of vegans to meet at a church for fear they were promoting anorexia. The group had been granted a room at the Cathedral of Castelfranco to launch a book on vegan cuisine. But according to local press, the priest later revoked their request, explaining in an e-mail he was concerned adolescents could develop eating disorders due to exposure to veganism.
