Notes from Vegan Outreach

Link of the Week: Jobs

Excerpt: "Before you decide to work for an animal rights group, you might want to ask yourself, 'What would I do with my life if there were no animal suffering?'"


New Fliers

Lauren Panos has developed new display fliers for Why Vegan and Even If You Like Meat. You can download pdfs to print here.

Product of the Week: Jon's Addiction

In honor of Jon Camp's recent birthday, this week's product is Chocolate Silk. Lucy Kelly writes: "More and more stores are selling Silk is Soy chocolate soymilk. It has a good helping of essential vitamins and is a good addition to smoothies."

Although his 40,000+ booklets handed out this semester for Adopt A College is almost double the entire program's Fall 2003 total, Jon could have handed out 80,000, if he didn't spend half his time fantasizing about Chocolate Silk!

Editor's note: Silk Enhanced has Omega-3s, Vitamin D, and B12.

Notes from All Over

The Cleverness Capsule

excerpt:     "[I]t was reported that a daily dose of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fish oil capsules made the seven-year olds at Little Heath Primary School in Potters Bar, Herts, smarter and better behaved. After three months on the capsules, the best of the students jumped three years in reading comprehension."

Jack Norris, RD, notes: Vegans generally have high Omega 6 intake -- generally too high, in terms of the ratio to Omega 3s. Learn more about essential fatty acids here, including good vegan sources of Omega 3s (in addition to Silk Enhanced, mentioned above).


Was Your Meat Smarter Than Your Pet?

excerpt:     "If you could talk to the animals, would they have anything to say? New research suggests they might. Testing the IQ of a sheep may seem laughable. But at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge, England, they know better. One sheep who got a reward every time she recognized a human face correctly on a video screen scored a perfect 50 out of 50.

"And it's not just sheep...."


Notes from Our Members

I just picked up a Vegan Advocacy booklet from a bookstore here in Tulsa, OK. I am one of the activists that has burned out in the face of the constant battles we face. I had been in a rut for about six months, even avoiding conversations about animal issues altogether in order to avoid the frustration of debating the close-minded.
     However, I felt a new sense of courage, mission, and ability after reading your booklet. Thank you for reminding me why I became an activist in the first place. I appreciated your focus on logic and ethics, rather than radicalism and other common tactics by some groups (which usually make the rest of us look bad). I will become active again soon!

We had the opportunity to meet Jon Camp while he was in Boston leafleting. We were very impressed by this dedicated, self-sacrificing young man. His gentle nature and love for animals touched our hearts. It is people like Jon who, with his unimposing manner, will ultimately help to spread the word of the positive aspects of a vegan lifestyle.
