1. Soy: The Truth
 
As a vegan I’m often asked about soy consumption since there are still many myths floating around about it. One of the most comprehensive, well-written and well-researched articles on soy that I have ever found was written by John Robbins, author of the best-seller “The Food Revolution” and many other books. Robbins explains why soy is safe and in what forms should be best eaten.

2. This Week’s Famous Quote
 
"Meat consumption is just as dangerous to public health as tobacco use... It's time we looked into holding the meat producers and fast-food outlets legally accountable."
 
~ Neal Barnard, President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine


3. Excess Iron Detrimental for Health
 
Researchers at the University of California Los Angeles suggest that iron accumulation is a possible contributing factor for Alzheimer's disease. They found that "iron had begun to accumulate in part of the brain which is generally damaged in the early stages of the disease, but not in a region which tends to be affected much later. Comparing the results against a separate set of brain scans, they also found that iron levels were linked to tissue damage in Alzheimer's patients but not in healthy older people."

Much abundant scientific evidence on the link between diet and disease indicates that well-balanced vegan diets decrease the rate of most chronic diseases and reverse many of them. What else do we need to know in order to transition to a compassionate diet and stop supporting an industry that causes much harm to all of God’s Creation?


4. This Week’s Bible Verse
 
(RSV) Proverbs 15:23
 
“To make an apt answer is a joy to a man, and a word in season, how good it is!”
 
God calls us to talk to one another in a respectful, loving way. While many times we are tempted to respond in anger or frustration, we should remember that timely and appropriate words spoken in gentleness are Christ-like and far more effective.


5. Common Objections to a Vegan Diet
 
People often object to a vegan diet without much knowledge about it. This article lists six of the most common objections and offers short effective responses to set the record straight.

6. Book Review - A Rooster’s Tale: A Year in the Life of a Clan of Chickens
 
A Rooster’s Tale: A Year in the Life of a Clan of Chickens, written by Claudia Bruckert, is a delightful lyrical drama, full of color, sound, voices and activities that recount the incredibly rich life of a young rooster surrounded by his relatives and friends in a two-story coop with full access to the outdoors.
