plant-based diet are healthful, sustainable and less abusive to our
fellow Earthlings. Transitioning to a vegan diet is a essential step
in order to be good stewards of our bodies.
2. Famous Quote
“Billions are spent searching for drugs and other material means to
cure what is actually an ethical and spiritual disease. Sowing disease
and death in animals at our mercy, we reap the same in ourselves.
Much of medical research today is actually an apparently desperate
quest to find ways to continue eating animal foods and to escape the
consequences of our cruel and unnatural practices. Do we really want
to be successful in this?”

3. David Carter on Plant-Based Diets
defensive lineman for the Oakland Raiders, shares how beneficial
plant-based diets are for one’s health and also for our fellow
creatures, who are unnecessarily abused and killed when raised for
food. He says, “I'm not alone in this awakening. Professional athletes
from an array of sports are fueling with fruits and vegetables.
Ten-time Olympic medal winner Carl Lewis proudly stated "My best
performances were when I was 30 years old and I was a vegan." Smash
hitter Venus Williams eats a raw vegan diet. And baseball legend Tony
LaRussa loves animals so much he not only started his own animal
rescue organization, but leaves them off his plate.”
Carter: Plant-based diet helps fuel top performance.

(RSV) Galatians 5:22-2
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against
such there is no law.
This is one of the clearest verses on how we should
live our lives! If our actions are motivated by love and kindness for
sure we would not approve or support the unnecessary exploitation of
God's farmed animals. A plant-based diet helps us show love, kindness,
peace and compassion to all Creation.
5. Fed Up!
lunches in the U.S. contribute much to the high rates of many chronic
diseases such as obesity, heart-disease and diabetes. School lunches
often comprise pepperoni pizza, greasy French fries and low-fat cow’s
chocolate milk; all very unhealthy foods for humans, especially
children. It’s time to move towards a plant-based diet and witness the
tremendous benefits this brings to our children.
up: Let's really move big food out of school.
The meat and dairy
industries are very powerful and get to pretty much decide what foods
are part of school lunches in the U.S. The Physicians Committee of
Responsible Medicine is right in stating that it’s time to be fed up
with this and push our congressman to provide healthier choices for
6. This Week’s Video: Debunking Egg Industry
Watch Dr. Greger’s video in which he explains why eggs are
not part of a healthy diet. He refers to the latest meta-analysis of
studies on egg consumption and heart disease risk where scientists
found that even less than a single egg a day is associated with
increased risk of both cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
