A woman who died of altitude sickness while climbing Mount Everest took on the challenge to prove that 'vegans can do anything'.

Weeks before her death Dr Strydom told how she and her husband wanted to dispel the belief that vegans were 'weak' or 'malnourished' by taking on the climb. 'It seems that people have this warped idea of vegans being malnourished and weak.

'By climbing the seven summits we want to prove that vegans can do anything and more,' she said in an interview with the university where she worked.


MUH MEAT

Actually a pretty sad story. Everest is dangerous.

Mendiola's third law: Any discussion that remotely mentions vegetarianism will be met with people too eager to criticize the lifestyle choice and its practitioners, always about how vegans are pricks or some shit.

So.....don't climb Everest is the lesson?

The vegan part is kind of irrelevant.

Someone ought to keep track of Mt. Everest's #bodycount. As far as proving something, the only thing taking on this challenge says to me about people who do is that they have a death wish.

According to Wikipedia, there are currently more than 200 bodies in the freezer currently on the mountain.

Obvious cosmic irony aside (dying because of common danger and not because of diet), overall a bit of a shame.

Yeah, because she lost her life, leaving behind her husband. She will not be "lecturing" anyone, because she is no longer alive. Her last moments were spent ill on a mountain while her husband ventured on without knowledge of the severity of her illness and her imminent death, and so her last moments were spent with strangers, and so I can confirm to you that she will no longer hold conversations you disagree with about her diet.

Trying to turn this into an opportunity to be snarky about vegans, like Jesus take a look at yourself.

I wonder if it ever occurred to her that "hey, there's a good chance I may not survive this, so I may look like a fool trying to prove that vegans are no different". You'd think a professor would think things through

I mean we all know this was because she was a woman

typical of a woman to think herself capable of doing something impressive.
