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!
