1. What is McDonald’s Hiding?

From added hormones to cattle, to additives that are banned in Europe, such as dimethylpolysiloxane (in the oil it uses to cook Chicken McNuggets and azodicarbonamide (in the bun of sandwiches) McDonald’s is once again on the spotlight for its devious practices in spite of its “transparency” campaign.

2. Famous Quote

He who takes medicine and neglects to diet wastes the skill of his doctors.
~ Chinese Proverb


3. Increased Breast Cancer Survival with Plant-Based Diet

Plant-based eating seems to increase the survival of breast cancer patients according to the World Cancer Research Fund International's Continuous Update Project. A review of 85 studies with 164,416 participants diagnosed with breast cancer concluded that eating more high-fiber plant foods before and after diagnosis may reduce the risk of dying from breast cancer. Moreover, women who consume more soy after their diagnosis have a lower risk of dying, while women who consumed more saturated fat before their diagnosis had a higher risk of dying.

Every day it seems we learn more benefits associated with a whole-foods plant-based diet. Showing compassion to God’s animals really pays off.


4. Bible Verse
(RSV) Genesis 1:21

So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Every creature is God’s creation and we all share the same loving source. Actively alleviating suffering and contributing to healing and restoration on Earth helps us reflect God’s love onto all Creation!


5. Priceless

A patient, Mr. J., with severe artery blockage and scheduled for bypass surgery decided to google information about reversing heart-disease while waiting in his hospital bed. Upon reading about reversal of heart-disease with a plant-based diet he decides to call off the surgery and against medical advice he checks himself out of the hospital. After 25 days of embracing a whole-food, plant-based diet and proper medication, Mr. J. was able to go back to a normal life including exercising for 2-3 hours a day.

The amazing benefits of embracing a whole-food, plant-based diet are underestimated and unknown by most people. By not eating God’s animals people can avoid much suffering and disease.


6. This Week’s Video: How many cancers have been caused by arsenic-laced chicken?

This short video addresses the issue of arsenic-containing drugs intentionally added to poultry feed to reduce the parasite burden and pinken the meat. Evidence seems to indicate that arsenic is converted by cooking into carcinogenic inorganic arsenic compounds.
