Saving Animals - One Bite at a Time

Over the years, hundreds of people have asked what they can do to help animals. 

Many people are sad because they don't have money to donate to organizations that help animals, their living situation does not allow them to have an animal or they can't for health reasons, etc.  Leave it up to PETA to find a great way to help all types of animals on this earth.  I recently made a donation to PETA and they sent me the "One-Stop Reference Guide to Going Vegan."  Here are a few facts that I found surprising and motivating to going vegan.

Health Benefits of Being Vegan

- Unclog your arteries.

- Average vegan has a cholesterol level of 133 - which is 77 points lower than the average meat-eater’s. 

Protect Your Brain

- Research shows that people who avoid “bad fats” - the kind found in meat, eggs and especially dairy foods - cut their risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease by about two thirds. 

Fight Cancer With Plants

- Research shows that vegans are about 40 percent less likely to get cancer than meat-eaters. 

Slim Down by Going Vegan

- On average, vegans weigh 8 percent less that meat-eaters and they are nine times less likely to be obese. 

Prevent and Even Reverse Diabetes

- Research even shows that diabetics who eat low-fat vegan foods are able to stop taking medications - or at least take  fewer of them - to manage the disease. 

You’ll Save Animals

- A vegan saves more than 100 animals a year - by not eating them. 

You’ll Save Money at the Grocery Store

- Some of the most versatile vegan foods - including beans, rice, vegetables, tofu and pasta - cost relatively little compared to animal-based foods. 

Pollution

- Researchers from the university of California Riverside calculate that cooking just one charbroiled burger causes as much pollution as driving an 18 wheeler for 143 miles. 

There are more than 20 billion animals killed for food in the U.S. each year.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 5 million members and supporters.  PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in the food industry, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of rodents, birds, and other animals who are often considered “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.  

Visit Peta.org....there are so many ways you can save animals.

    Nancy, I found your article here through my Google vegan alerts. I have been vegan since July 2013 and I can tell you it is the best thing I have done. I went vegan for the animals! I found you on Facebook and sent you a request. Let me know if there is anything I can help you with as to how to go vegan. Thanks for writing this!
