We had a lovely Ethical Eating gathering on the evening of October 25th, when we all shared a bountiful plant-based meal.  After our dinner, Ed Oaksford made a presentation discussing the following four ethical reasons to adopt a plant-based diet. First of all, a whole-food plant-based diet prevents and, in some cases, even reverses many common diseases, such as diabetes 2, heart disease and some cancers.  Second of all, a plant-based diet does not cause harm to animals, or to the people who work in the industry.  Third, if we all adopted a plant-based diet, we’d be able to feed the whole planet, and last of all, we could reduce almost 70 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions that are contributing to global warming. (Drawdown, 2018)

 At our next meeting on November 22, 2019, we plan to continue this discussion and watch the Plant-based News’ 2018 movie.  We will also share some pointers for those who would like to start transitioning to a plant-based diet.

 We hope you will join us.  Please RSVP to Linda Oaksford at lloaksford@gmail.com.

We are sharing plant-based recipes, so that we can all learn how easy it is to prepare plant-based meals. If you have a recipe that you are interested in sharing, send them to Linda Oaksford at lloaksford@gmail.com.

In a nutshell, improving our Planetary Health is the first of four reasons to become vegan. Industrial animal agriculture is responsible for most of our planet’s environmental destruction, as it uses up our natural resources (land, drinkable water, and fish in the ocean) and contributes to greenhouse gases, even more than our automobiles.
