How to stop global warming?
This extraordinary movie made by
the Nicolaas G. Pierson Foundation from Holland
shows us the whole and bitter truth about
the influence of the meat industry
on our climate and on the devastation of our environment,
water and air.

James Cameron is a vegan

James Cameron is probably one of my favorite vegan celebrities

"[But] I went 100 percent plant-based – vegan – two-and-a-half years ago.
I’ve got tons of energy. I’m fitter now. I’m running farther than I did
when I was in my twenties. So I’m good to go.”


James Cameron’s Vegan Diet Gives Him ‘Tons of Energy’ 

He does so much for the animals!
For the planet!
Ah, and he makes some cool movies too!

Foster Orphan Elephants and Rhinos

It's been a year since I started fostering
Elephant orphan SHUKURU and
Rhino orphan SOLIO,

Please read more on SOLIO's story
and her friend Maxwell the blind rhino
is really something else!

It is great to received news from
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust monthly about their lives,
Please consider fostering a rhino or elephant,
they are beautiful animals on the verge of extinction.
This trust does a wonderful work!

Runner Carl Lewis is one of the most cited example
of the success of a vegan diet for high performing athletes

Many athletes choose a vegan diet because recovery times
between trainings are faster & easier, well,
I am not an athlete but I sure feel healthier

Check out Mac Danzing amazing video!
He is not a 'skinny hippie' kind of guy eh?


Check out a list of many other vegan athletes!

Pirates and slaves


Last week I went to the exhibition of Real Pirates
this was an exhibit based on a real pirate ship that sank in Massachusetts, the Whydah...
http://www.sdnhm.org/exhibitions/past-exhibitions/real-pirates/
I learn so much about pirates and I turn to admire them,
they robbed mostly Slave Ships,
then they set free the slaves and make them part of their crew,
most pirate ships had at least a 60% crew of slaves,
indian americans, latin people,
and they always split their gold in equal parts &
had elections to choose captains...
I learn also a lot about slavery...
the slave ships, now the resemblance between
human slavery and what we do now
with the animals was an uncanny painful part
before it was humans
now it is animals
overcrowded and abused
overcrowded and abused
entire families suffering abuse for others profit
intelligent beings being abuse for food

Activism

Today, a year ago, I went to my 1st protest,
I became an animal rights activist
at the bacon festival,
I am so thankful for all the
wonderful compassionate people
I have met in 1 year,
and all have learned about animals
and how terribly we treat them.
As we asked the people today at the bacon festival,
please just make an informed
decision for all your choices,
learn how animals are treated for food,
for clothing, for entertainment,
and make the right choice for them,
for you, and this planet,
always cause the least amount of suffering.


And remember what activism is about
Always do something
Do not follow the masses or what is convenient
Nor what you have been told to do
Search for the truth
Learn how things really work
And DO something to leave this planet
A better place than you found it!

Love animals?

Love Animals?
Then why EAT them?
Why WEAR them?
And make them play tricks?
If you really love animals,
re-think your relationship with them!

We are all beings. We are all the same.

"We are all beings. We are all the same.
Why and how did the animals get to be "chosen" as being food,
clothing and anything else used for exploitation?
We have so much to learn from them.
They are all love."

~Ellen Ericksen, Animal Activist, Vegan.

Is Veganism Extreme?

Is Veganism Extreme?

I'll tell you, and maybe if you read my blog years ago
I used to be SICK all the time
I had migraines, asthma, IBS, diverticulitis
allergies, horrible allergies! all the time
and I thought it was my poor cats
and I was always tired, always late, always unmotivated
I have been a vegan, not even a super healthy one
just a vegan, for a while now and
The migraines are GONE
The allergies are GONE
The IBS and diverticulitis attacks are GONE
I have more energy than when I was working-out but eating dead animals
and drinking yogurt
I feel so much more clear-minded, focus, and just happy & relaxed
And to confess, I thought being a vegan was hard, but it hasn't been at all!
There is so much food to eat that has NO animal products, really, there is!
You get all the protein you need from beans, tofu, nuts, grains, and veggies
Give it a try, you won't regret it!
You will feel young vibrant again, and you won't be torturing animals
nor contributing to the destruction of this planet!

Take Extinction Off Your Plate

Taken from: http://www.takeextinctionoffyourplate.com/
"Meat production is one of the main drivers of environmental degradation globally, and the crisis is rapidly growing worse. Production of beef, poultry, pork and other meats tripled between 1980 and 2010 and will likely double again by 2020. This ever-increasing meat consumption in a world of more than 7 billion people is already taking a staggering toll on wildlife, habitat, water resources, air quality and the climate. And Americans eat more meat per capita than almost anyone else. By eating less or no meat, we can take extinction off our plates and improve our own health along with the health of the planet."
