New Resource: Regional Vegetarian Guide
"A low-fat vegetarian diet including soy, eggplant, and almonds can reduce cholesterol levels about as much as widely used statin drugs, a small, one-month study suggests." Also in Time.
from Farmed Animal Net:
Since January of 2003, I have been stocking Why
Vegan booklets (along with other material) in the front entrance of the
Greyhound bus station. I check on the supply every week and about 60 Why
Vegan booklets are taken in a month.
I want to thank you for publishing such
informative booklets! As of June 28, my husband and I are now vegan. I also
read the “Tips
for Spreading Veganism” article and I agree with your philosophy.
It is so important to give people factual, non-judgmental information, and
then allow them to make their own choice. I want to do my part in providing
people with the knowledge they need in an effort to stop animal suffering
on factory farms and in slaughterhouses.
After attending a Goldfinger concert, my wife and I
spoke with lead singer John Feldman about veganism. He gave us some of your
literature. We would like to try a vegan diet because the benefit to our bodies
is only outwieghed by the benefit to the farmed animals.
