    Pledge to Be Vegan for 30 Days!

     

    Some people go vegan after looking an animal in the eye and realizing that there's a "who," not a "what," looking back. Others avoid meat, eggs, and dairy foods to ditch unwanted pounds or because they want to help the environment. Whatever the reason, there's never been a better time to cut the meat and other animal-derived products out of your diet.

    Change your life for the better and save the lives of animals by pledging to be vegan!

    Give Turkeys a Reason to Say, 'Thanks!'

    Now is your chance to give turkeys something to be thankful for this holiday season! Pledge not to eat turkeys on Thanksgiving—or any other day!

    Many Americans have no idea that more than 45 million turkeys are slaughtered each year for Thanksgiving. They're crammed into dark sheds, pumped full of antibiotics, and have their throats slit before becoming holiday centerpieces. Just in time for the holidays, PETA's Thanksgiving video, "Thanks!" takes viewers on a harrowing journey with one boy and a group of turkeys, all destined to become holiday meals. Watch now!

    On today's factory farms, turkeys have been genetically manipulated to grow so quickly in such a short amount of time that many suffer from heart failure and sustain broken legs because of their extra weight. All the while, they're crammed by the thousands into dark, windowless sheds. For most of them, the first time that they feel the sun on their feathers is on their way to the slaughterhouse, where they are hung upside down by their weak and crippled legs before their heads are dragged through an electrified "stunning tank," which immobilizes them but does not kill them.

    Many of the terrified birds dodge the tank and, therefore, are completely conscious when their throats are slit. If the blade fails to slit the birds' throats properly, they are scalded alive in the tank of hot water that's used for feather removal.

    Turkeys are intelligent, social creatures who enjoy listening to music, and younger turkeys bond closely with their parents. In nature, youngsters typically stay with their mothers for the first five months of their lives. Knowing how much we have in common with turkeys, it's hard to watch this video without thinking, "What if someone did this to me?"

    A couple in their 60s ran a marathon every day in 2013, completing a year-long run around Australia on Tuesday.

    And they did it all while maintaining a raw, vegan diet, they say on their website.

    Okay, I get your point, but red meat/ raw flesh, poultry and dairy (cow milk is for baby calves) just doesn't appeal to me anymore. 

    But, a baked stuffed lobster (once or twice a year) might :)

    So a comedian walked into a gym. No, seriously: Mark Malkoff, who makes his living pulling quirky stunts like living in IKEA for a week – has pulled off his biggest challenge yet: a 28-day vegan diet and exercise plan to go from flabby to fit. A video documents the epic journey.

    Most people would find switching to a plant-based diet difficult enough. Add to that weight training and cardio, and that would make even the funniest comic grumpy.

    Malkoff didn’t let it get him down, especially as he noticed a change. There were “so many positives,” he said. “I physically just felt great. The pounds came off, and I started gaining this muscle.”  (click on link for the rest of the story)
