Vego myth a bit on the nose

Not that old furphy again! For the last time, Hitler was not a vegetarian (Echo, Dec 10, food page).

This from a quick internet search: Biographers who wrote about Hitler, and who knew him quite well on a personal basis, describe his love for Bavarian sausages and game pie. Hitler’s own chef talked about Hitler’s love for stuffed pigeon.

In fact, Hitler suffered from severe flatulence and was advised by doctors to follow a vegetarian diet from time to time in order to calm the gas attacks. This is probably where the myth about Hitler being a vegetarian first originated.

No doubt his lieutenants wanted Hitler to be a vegetarian, especially the ones seated closest to him at the dinner table.
