Exciting news coming out of Michigan this week! Classes began at Oakland University, including a new course on the benefits of a vegan diet. This seven-week online course—called “A Lifestyle Change to Improve Health: The Vegan Diet”—is open to the public and focuses on how vegans have a lower susceptibility to leading killers—such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer—as well as many other perks, including the loss of unwanted pounds (aka the “freshman 15″!) and soaring energy levels. Super vegan strength power!
As the course instructor, Marilyn Mouradjian, M.S.N., R.N., states, “Our culture relies heavily on pharmaceuticals that often have serious side effects, which can prompt additional medication use to reduce those side effects. The vegan diet scientifically addresses the prevention and reversal of many chronic health conditions.”
Mouradjian is not only a longtime vegan but also a PETA supporter, and we’re extremely proud to award her a peta2 Compassionate Campus Award. Please join me in thanking her for teaching this groundbreaking class by leaving a comment below. Come on, people—French silk tofu pie is in the course description!
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
