1. Vegetables Win Over Drugs at Combating Heart Disease

Dr. Shane Williams is a community cardiologist in Bracebridge, Ontario (Canada) and also a vegan, who is well aware of the power of eating a well-balanced diet without animal products. Dr. Williams is now educating patients on preventing and reversing heart-disease with food.

The Bible depicts vegetarianism as God’s ideal, and the diet conforms to the central biblical principle of stewardship. Helping our bodies heal with food while at the same time showing compassion to God’s farmed animals who suffer unimaginably is good stewardship of all of God’s Creation.


2. Famous Quote

"Most of these chronic diseases we have in the United States, for the most part, and even a lot of our cancers, are driven by what we're eating."

~ Ed Smith, Mayor of Marshall, TX and advocate of plant-based diets.


3. A Life Transformed

Read about the incredible transformation of a man who at 60 years old decided to change his life for the better by adopting a well-balanced plant-based diet. He lost 50 pounds, 9 inches off of his waist and reduced his cholesterol to the point of not needing medication.

This is not an exception, but the rule when people eat to live in a healthy, compassionate and sustainable way. What a great example!


4. Bible Verse
(RSV) 2 Corinthians 13:11

“Finally, brethren, farewell. Mend your ways, heed my appeal, agree with one another, live in peace, and the God of love and peace will be with you.”

There can be no restoration or peace if there's exploitation in God's Creation! We are all made in the essence of God's love and we have the choice to cause suffering and pain, and thus create conflict, or to reflect God's love onto all Creation and bring peace into the world.
