      FYI:
      Did you know that John Mackey - the founder/CEO of Whole Foods - refers to himself as a Vegan? I recently wrote a short blog on about John Makey http://www.Veganexcellence.com/blog/vegan-and-raw-news/ceo-whole-foods-vegan.html Here is more extensive article/interview: Grist.org/article/little-mackey
