Processed meats pose serious heart and diabetes risk - Harvard study
Full story: New York Times blogs

A new Harvard study that found no increased risk of heart disease among meat eaters is generating a lot of buzz for red meat [conveniently forgetting that it IS linked to increased cancer risk]. But the research is not so much a celebration of red meat as it is an indictment of processed meats like bacon, sausage and deli meats. Eating one serving of those foods a day [just two slices of bacon for example] was associated with a 42 per cent higher risk of heart disease and 19 per cent increased risk of diabetes. While it's true that the study will make it easier to enjoy a burger, at least if we're worried about our heart, it doesn't address research that has linked an increased risk of colon cancer with high meat consumption. In addition, many people skip red meat not for personal health reasons but because they are concerned about the health of the planet.   Read more...

Dairy: 6 reasons you should avoid it at all costs
Full story: Huffington Post

Dairy is nature's perfect food - but only if you're a calf. If that sounds shocking to you, it's because very few people are willing to tell the truth about dairy. In fact, criticizing milk in America is like taking on motherhood, apple pie, or baseball. But that's just what I'm about to do.   Read more...

Soy cuts stomach cancer risk
Full story: Mens News Daily

There is a great deal of interest regarding the potential effects of soy-based foods (like tofu and soy beverages) on cancer risk. There is a growing body of laboratory and human research data suggesting that dietary soy isoflavones might be able to reduce the risk of prostate and breast cancer. Now, a newly published clinical research study from Korea suggests that high levels of soy isoflavones in the blood may also be linked to a reduced risk of stomach cancer, as well.   Read more...

John Robbins: Greed, cancer and pink KFC buckets
Full story: Huffington Post

We live in a world of profound contradictions. Some things are just unbelievably strange. At times I feel like I've found a way to adapt to the weirdness of the world, and then along comes something that just boggles my mind. The largest grassroots breast cancer advocacy group in the world, "Susan G. Komen for the Cure," has now partnered with the fast food chain KFC in a national "Buckets for the Cure" campaign "to spread educational messaging." How often do you think this "messaging" refers in any way to the many studies that have shown that an increased risk of developing colorectal, pancreatic, and breast cancer is associated with high intakes of well-done, fried or barbecued meats? Pardon me for being cynical, but I have to ask, if Komen is going to partner with KFC, why not take it a step further and partner with a cigarette company? [As always, John Robbins is not only informative but entertaining and the whole article is well worth a read.]   Read more...

Confessions of a recovering carnivore
Full story: Occidental Weekly, CA, U.S.

I enjoy bacon. I adore my mom's turkey lasagna. I also love living animals, care about my health and am genuinely concerned for the future of planet Earth. Dear readers, before you roll your eyes and move on, let me clarify that this is not a cliché condemnation of the carnivorous. I am not some bleeding heart, tofu-chomping hippie who thinks that anybody who disagrees with my own granola-liberal views is wrong. I am, in fact, a recovering carnivore, one who grudgingly acknowledges the serious impact the food industry, especially the meat production industry, has on our very sick planet Earth.   Read more...

Wanted: World referendum, climate justice tribunal
Full story: IPS

A world people's referendum on climate change will be held in April 2011 for the earth's peoples to decide how to address this global problem. Although it is hoped that some states will cooperate, the participation of governments will not be essential to the referendum, as civil society organisations are to plan it according to their own lights and the traditions and customs of each local area. This was one of the final resolutions April 22 at the close of the World People's Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth, held in the central Bolivian city of Cochabamba.   Read more...

UN official warns on fisheries collapse by 2050
Full story: BBC

The UN's top environment official has echoed warnings that commercial fishing could be destroyed within 50 years. "It is not a science fiction scenario. It is within the lifetime of a child born today," said Achim Steiner, head of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). He made the remarks at a conference in New York previewing a new study [to be released in October] on how to make the global economy more environmentally sustainable. His colleague, Dr Pavan Sukhdev, said if current fishing practices continued, "then we are in a situation where 30 or 40 years down the line we effectively are out of fish." A preview of the report says for fish stocks to be saved, up to 22 million jobs involved with fishing may have to be axed, and up to 13 million boats removed from service.   Read more...

Biodiversity: We can live without oil, but not without flora and fauna
Full story: IPS

The policies and deals that contributed to the massive oil spill under way in the Gulf of Mexico are also jeopardising the Earth's vital biological infrastructure, according to the Global Biodiversity Outlook 3, published May 10. The report is the most current assessment of the state of the planet's biodiversity, the living organisms that provide us with health, wealth, food, fuel and other vital services. In this study, "you can clearly see the outlines of what could be the sixth great extinction event of all life on Earth," said Thomas Lovejoy, biodiversity chair at the Washington DC-based Heinz Centre for Science, Economics and the Environment. Asked recently why biodiversity was so important, Lovejoy responded by saying: "You can't eat the Internet." Nor can we breathe without plants that supply oxygen. But we can live without oil.   Read more...

Veggie celebs: Ellen DeGeneres on food, fitness, & staying energized
Full story: Shape Magazine

The frank, friendly, funny Ellen DeGeneres gets real about yoga, sweets, meat and living life to the max. At age 52, when Hollywood is over and done with the majority of its sweethearts, Ellen is hip, hot, and healthy. With a vegan diet, a dedication to yoga, a vocabulary salted with self-help buzzwords, and, lest we forget, a wife instead of a husband, Ellen embodies the modern version of everyone's neighbor and friend. If Ellen had a mantra, it would be "Stay true to yourself."   Read more...

Hockey player Georges Laraque: 'I want to change the world'
Full story: Toronto Star

Georges Laraque [former Montreal Canadiens hockey player] is much more than a hockey enforcer. He's also a philanthropist, vegan, environmentalist, entrepreneur and animal rights activist. "I want to change the world," said Laraque. He's not kidding... He became a vegan a year ago and just recently became part-owner of a raw food restaurant in Montreal. Laraque's life philosophy is straightforward. "At the end of the day, nobody cares how many Stanley Cups you won or how much money you made. They're going to look and say, 'What has he done with his notoriety in the city he played in?'" he said.   Read more...

Global vegan bake sale is 'sweet' activism
Full story: CNN

When animal rights activist Jasmin Singer found herself face to face with a scientist who conducts animal testing, a cupcake was exchanged instead of harsh words. "A good vegan cupcake has the power to transform everything for the better," Singer said. "It's almost like a political statement with icing." Singer was co-hosting a vegan bake sale in New York [recently] as part of the second annual Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale. More than 120 groups across six continents [held] vegan bake sales from April 24 through May 2. Gary Loewenthal, director of the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale, said he believes bake sales can be a nice change of pace for people used to more confrontational forms of activism. "It's almost like a political statement with icing." [Warning: Pictures at the link may make you hungry.]   Read more...

Diet and exercise to the extremes - vegan diet fuels ultra-marathoner
Full story: New York Times

I went running with Scott Jurek on a clear, chilly morning last month, an easy four-mile loop in Central Park... After that he showered and came to my house to cook [a vegan] lunch before going for a late-afternoon jog of another 10 miles or so. That's an easy day for Jurek, 36, an accomplished ultramarathoner... this year he is fit and psyched for the 24-Hour Run world championship in Brive-la-Gaillarde, France. It is a grueling race to determine how many miles runners can complete on a 1.4-kilometer road loop in a 24-hour period [Jurek set an American record]. It's a long day, and one that raises a particular aspect of Jurek's training that makes him an especially interesting athlete: he is a vegan. He said he needed 5,000 to 8,000 calories a day, "and I get that all from plant sources. It's not hard, either. I like to eat, and I don't have to worry about weight management... I've been racing for 15 years, but I feel like I'm still at my peak." Evidently, it isn't his diet that's slowing him down.   Read more...

Meet Mario - a true story about milk cows and veal calves
Full story:, BC, Canada

Let me tell you the true story of Mario. Mario was born on a dairy farm. On the day of his birth, he was taken away from his mother. She cried and searched anxiously for days after losing him. She carried him for nine months, but only got to meet him for a brief moment. Mario was a male calf born to a dairy cow. He was never to see his mother again. The day after he was born, Mario ended up at a livestock auction to be sold for veal. His umbilical cord was still attached to his soft baby belly. [But Mario's story has a happier ending....]   Read more..., BC, Canada - May 7

Accumulating research shows animals are a lot more like us than most of us think
Full story: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

California last month banned slaughtering pigs too crippled to walk and the Maryland House voted to ban the steel leg-hold trap. These are just two of a growing number of signs that humankind is beginning to emerge from a might-makes-right relationship to animals. To this day, animals have been defined as nothing more than property for human use. Each year, we confine more than 50 billion in industrialized conditions before sending them to slaughter. The problem with this is that animals have feelings... Our ethical systems ascribe rights and privileges to fellow humans. The bedrock of these ethical values is our shared capacity to suffer and to enjoy life. Animals share those capacities with us. It's time we applied our ethical principles to them, too.

Is there anything truly sustainable or humane about eating meat?
Full story: AlterNet

Natural food sections in our grocery stores are chock full of them. The ethical foodies seek them out. They're intended to inform the consumer about where our food comes from and how it's produced: "Sustainable," "organic," "free-range," "local" products - we've all seen the terms and we hope they genuinely convey what they imply. But what do they really mean? seeks to expose the facts behind our misleading food labels and farming practices. Lee Hall, whose new book On Their Own Terms: Bringing Animal-Rights Philosophy Down to Earth expounds... 'If you really want to tread lightly on the earth and its conscious life, the answer is to stop breeding these poor beings only to betray them."   Read more...

Probing the link between slaughterhouses and violent crime
Full story: Toronto Star

To author Upton Sinclair, the hellish world of factory slaughterhouses was as dangerous to human beings as it was to pigs. He filled his 1906 novel The Jungle with meat-packing images that seem ripped from a slasher movie. Sinclair's abattoir labourers get so desensitized to violence that rates of murder, rape and brawls among them rise. The book cemented the link between slaughterhouses and crime for decades to come. More than a hundred years later, a University of Windsor researcher may have proven the literary classic right. Criminology professor Amy Fitzgerald says statistics show the link between slaughterhouses and brutal crime is empirical fact. It's a case of science catching up to what has been folk knowledge since industrialized slaughterhouses began to appear in the 19th century: workers exposed to the killing of large numbers of animals on a regular basis become disturbed and appear to lose empathy.   Read more...

Animal rights on the march
Full story: National Journal, Washington, DC, U.S.

Suppose you were a furry or feathery creature, confined to a cramped crate or a tiny cage, with your sole purpose in life to produce eggs for some human's plate - or to end up on that plate yourself. Don't you think your keepers should at least provide you with enough room to turn around freely, lie down, stand up, and stretch your limbs? Well, you don't get to vote on this question. American members of species homo sapiens are voting on this matter, however, and they seem to favor awarding you these minimal rights... Take notice, for it is often the case with social causes that the marginal becomes the mainstream. Surveys indicate that 2 per cent, tops, and perhaps not even 1 per cent, of all Americans are vegans. But the notion of a world that is less humancentric, that gives more legal weight to nonhuman animals, is not a chimera, for that world is already taking shape. [The full informative, thoughtful article is highly recommended.]   Read more...

Just released: John Robbins revisits the simple life
Full story:

Author John Robbins knows a thing or two about living a simple life - he's had millions and lived without millions, not once, but twice. At 21, Robbins walked away from his family's Baskin-Robbins ice cream business and fortune and spent the subsequent decade living largely off the land. Robbins became wealthy writing best-selling books telling Americans how to live simply and healthily. He earned millions of dollars, which were then stolen by Wall Street swindler Bernard Madoff. In [the just-published] The New Good Life, Living Better Than Ever in An Age of Less he says materialism is bad for the soul and urges people to focus on their quality of life. "Madoff stole our money, I wasn't about to allow him to steal the rest of my life," he said. [VegSource says: Practical and inspiring, "The New Good Life" provides much-needed hope and comfort in a time of fear and uncertainty.]   Read more... - May 26

Our food might be killing us
Full story: Montreal Gazette

Nobody wants to hear bad news. It took decades, countless studies, frightening real-life sagas and legislation to convince consumers that cigarette smoking could kill them. Even then, it hasn't stopped enough people from smoking to put any of the giant cigarette companies out of business. It's no surprise that it will take several decades to drive home the fact that most of the meat - beef, pork and chicken - sold in supermarkets and butcher shops is unhealthy and that the methods used to feed, house and slaughter the animals are doing untold damage to the environment, not to mention treating the animals cruelly. These disturbing facts are brought home in the recently published Animal Factory, a meticulously researched expose of the industrial animal farming industry by journalist David Kirby. By spotlighting three American families - one in Washington state's Yakima Valley, one in Illinois, and another in North Carolina - the author put a human spin on atrocious nationwide food processing methods.   Read more...

Beyond green growth: Why we need a world without economic growth

The book is a best seller (ranked 1,729 on Amazon) and in it he argues convincingly that we can still prosper without adhering to the encoded mantra of expansion and growth that permeates modern market economies. More recently, in January 2010, Andrew Simms and Victoria Johnson at the new economics foundation (nef) published a more emphatic message in their report entitled Growth isn't possible.   Read more...

'There's a limit to fish harvesting'
Full story: IPS

The perilous state of the world's fish stocks has received less media attention than the more visible, palpable environmental problems like air pollution. Isabella Lõvin is seeking to redress that balance. Her 2007 book Tyst hav (Silent Seas) hit the best-seller list in her native Sweden, garnering her three awards, including the title of 'Journalist of the Year'... Europe's own catches have gone down by 25 per cent in the last ten years. At the same time, Europe has increased consumption [of fish] by 20 per cent. It's an equation that doesn't add up. [Editor's note: It amazes and saddens me that the author would still eat fish, "though only those not threatened."]   Read more...
