Letter to the Editor from Bonnie Shulman: Hungry for answers - 28 Jun 2008

Hungry for answers

June 28
The Star, Toranto

Millions of people are already living the change that they want to see in the world. Like me, they have become vegetarians or vegans. When meat is off our menu, there is more grain available for the millions who die annually of hunger and its effects. We are helping our fellow humans and not contributing to the torture of factory-farm animals.

As far back as 1995, members of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine linked regular consumption of red meat and poultry, in particular, to significant increases in the risk of developing high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, gallbladder disease, and cancers of the colon, lungs, ovaries and prostate.

Bonnie Shulman, Toronto
