1. Plant-Based Diet Rejuvenates Arteries

A new study in this month’s American Journal of Cardiology supports the evidence that a low-fat vegetarian diet may help prevent heart attacks. In this study, researchers found that individuals who followed a low-fat vegetarian diet, along with a moderate exercise plan and stress management, measurably improved the function of their endothelium—the inner lining of arteries that is key to preventing heart attacks.

Following a well-balanced plant-based diet helps us be good stewards of our bodies, temples of the Holy Spirit, by reducing our risk of getting many chronic diseases and even with their reversion, such as heart disease and diabetes among others.

2. Famous Quote

(RSV) Psalm 62:7

On God rests my deliverance and my honor; my mighty rock, my refuge is God.

Jesus is our savior. God, through Jesus, showed us the path to love and reconciliation. By following his footsteps we can rest assured we are following God's will.

3. Ammonia Treated Beef Still Found Contaminated with E. Coli

Beef Products Inc. that provides ammonia processed beef to McDonald’s, Burger King and other fast-food giants, as well as the federal school lunch program (estimated 5.5 million pounds of the processed beef last year alone) is on the spotlight. Overwhelming evidence shows that in spite of their ammonia treatment their beef is still contaminated with E. Coli and Salmonella. Moreover, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) had endorsed the company’s ammonia treatment and said it destroys E. coli “to an undetectable level”, which led to the decision in 2007 to exempt Beef Products from their routine testing of hamburger meat. Since 2005, E. coli has been found 3 times and salmonella 48 times, including back-to-back incidents in August in which two 27,000-pound batches were found to be contaminated.

By now, most people should be aware that the meat industry lacks ethics and integrity, and that their thirst for profit knows no limits. Unfortunately, the consumer must not trust the industry's claims on the safety of their products or the way they treat their animals. Avoiding the intake of animal products helps us avoid food contamination with E.Coli and other common bacteria found in them.

4. Bible Verse

(RSV) Psalm 62:7

On God rests my deliverance and my honor; my mighty rock, my refuge is God.

Jesus is our savior. God, through Jesus, showed us the path to love and reconciliation. By following his footsteps we can rest assured we are following God's will.

5. Soy May Protect Against Lung Cancer

According to a new study soy consumption may reduce the incidence of lung cancer. The results of the Japan Public Health Center-based Prospective Study, which comprised 76,661 participants, indicated that those who consumed the most soy had the lowest risk of lung cancer. Soy foods in this study included miso soup, soymilk, a variety of tofu dishes, and fermented soybeans. To read the full article please search online for Soy Protects Against Lung Cancer
