1. Vegan Health and Vitality
 
Read about people who chose to take charge of their health and help heal their bodies by adopting a plant-based diet. From cancer to nerve pain, these people saw remarkable improvements in their health and vitality once they started eating a well-balanced vegan diet.

We have been so blessed with an amazing array of tasty plant-based foods that it seems rather surprising that most people still choose to eat the flesh and secretions of abused sentient beings causing disease and misery throughout God’s Creation. Let’s all show with our example that by adopting a plant-based diet we can be healthy, compassionate and joyous!


2. This Week’s Famous Quote
 
Dairy and eggs involve commodification of the female reproductive process. If you consider yourself a feminist, please go vegan and stop being part of that commodification.
 
~ Gary L. Francione


3.  Vegetarians Live Longer
 
The results of new study published in JAMA Internal Medicine, a Journal of the American Medical Association, indicate that vegetarians live longer than meat-eaters. The study comprised 73,308 members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, who tend to adhere to a vegetarian diet, and followed their eating habits and health issues for six years. Scientists concluded that dietary choices appeared to play a very important role in protecting the participants from heart disease and other chronic diseases.

Plant-based diets are ideal for our bodies! The time has come where the scientific evidence supporting the innumerable benefits of plant-based diets cannot be denied. And the time has come where Christians around the world should not longer avoid the indisputable fact that the animal agriculture industry causes devastation everywhere, especially in regards to our spiritual growth.


4. This Week’s Bible Verse
 
(RSV) 1 John 4:8
 
He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.
 
Our Creator is love and we are His/Her creations. Therefore, our inner essence is one of love, which should follow a path of compassion and love. This also calls us to be good stewards to love ourselves and our bodies, being good stewards of it.


5. Turkey Meat Heavily Contaminated
 
Research shows that eating turkey is a dangerous thing to do. The majority of turkey samples tested have been found contaminated with fecal matter and dangerous germs, such as E. coli, Salmonella and Staphylococcus.

The way God’s animals are raised is frankly brutal. It should not surprise us that nothing good may come from abusing animals and forcing them to live in very unsanitary conditions, and from slaughtering them as if they weren’t sentient beings. Once again, we reap what we sow.


6. This Weeks Video
 
Watch Dr. Greger’s short video explaining why the claims made by the egg industry about egg safety were found to be patently false, misleading, and deceptive by the U.S. Court of Appeals.
