Have you checked out the “Making the Connection” theme for this month yet?! This month’s issue is health, and since we’ve all heard the same boring old myths about nutrition, let’s just get down to the point: Vegan food is tasty and free of yucky animal flesh and byproducts like dairy products and eggs, and you can get all the vitamins and nutrients you need from a vegan diet!

Did you know that heart disease is the number one health problem in the U.S.? It accounts for more than a million heart attacks and a half-million deaths every year. Read that again. More than a million people die of a disease that can often be prevented by eating vegan! Brilliant doctors like Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Dr. Neal D. Barnard, Dr. John A. McDougall, and even my dad know better! These doctors promote veganism to help their patients and educate the public about the health benefits of a vegan diet!

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
