2. This Week’s Famous Quote

If our only motivation for not eating animal foods is our own health, it’s easy to 'cheat' a little here and there and pretty soon go back to eating them again. When our motivation is based on compassion, it is deep and lasting, because we understand that our actions have direct consequences on others who are vulnerable.
~ Dr. Will Tuttle, The World Peace Diet


3. Bird Flu is Back

The very contagious avian influenza virus, commonly known as bird flu, is back in poultry farms in the U.S. Bloomberg Business reports, “The U.S. government confirmed the presence of highly pathogenic H7N8 avian influenza in a commercial turkey flock in Indiana, the country’s first case since the end of last year’s outbreak that led to the destruction of 50 million animals.”

What can we expect from confining God’s animals by the tens or hundreds of thousands without allowing them to feel the sun, of breath fresh air, or to enjoy and exercise their instincts and needs? Factory farms are vessels where virus and bacteria mutate, rotate, combine and spread. This is a perfect example of how we reap what we sow.
