"Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." Albert EinsteinDear reader,
70 billion animals are slaughtered, unnecessarily, every year. Unnecessarily, because both the British Dietetics Association, the American Dietetics Association - and the WHO - have stated that you can live healthily on a whole food, plant-based diet - at any age. And there are vegan alternatives for every food you can think of.
Would you go vegan to help feed the 800 million people suffering from malnutrition in this world?
Would you go vegan out of concern for the slaughterhouse workers?
Would you go vegan to prevent the overuse of antibiotics?
Would you go vegan to help save the Amazon - and all the other rainforests under threat?
But it's the animals that are my main concern - would you, could you, go vegan for the animal's sake?
