    Why do I suddenly want to go back into academia?

  2. Elaine Vigneault Says:

    I hope one of the things they cover is that veganism is probably the most effective way way to prevent the most amount of death and suffering for both animals and women, particularly in the US.


    1) Because heart disease is the number one killing of American women and it can virtually be prevented through a plant-based (vegan) diet.

    2) The second leading cause of death among American women is cancer. And we know that cancer risk is greatly reduced through eating a plant-based diet.

    3) The vast majority of animals made to suffer and die in the US and worldwide is for “food” production: dairy, eggs, meat…

    Thus, we can PREVENT most current causes of death and suffering among women and animals if we simply adopt and promote veganism!
