1. What Schools Feed Children: Tim Enstice,
manager of the Planned Giving Department for the PETA Foundation,
exposes the negative effects of plant-based diets fed to children in
schools throughout the country. Although many schools do have vegetarian
options, the majority of their food still comes from animals,
contributing to the soaring rates of obesity, type 2 diabetes and other
chronic diseases. On the other hand, plant-based foods, rich in complex
carbohydrates, protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals, contain all the
nutrients that kids need to grow up healthy.

4. (RSV) Romans 12:2
“Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the
renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what
is good and acceptable and perfect.”
While it’s certainly hard to avoid acting and living as if we
belonged to the world, God calls us to live a life of obedience focused
on glorifying God. Jesus, our teacher, leads us into a life of
fulfillment where the love, peace and mercy of God abound.
5. Vegan Diet Slows Aging Process: A team
U.S. researchers led by Prof. Dean Ornish of the Preventive Medicine
Institute in California have found the fountain of youth, which
apparently lies in following a lifestyle that includes exercise, and a
vegan diet. The study included 24 men with prostate cancer, who had to
exercise 30 minutes 6 days a week for starters, meditate or relax for an
hour every day and follow a well-balanced vegan diet. Researchers found
that this lifestyle was able to increase an enzyme known as telomerase,
which protects cells from the effects of aging.
