Thought this video was something interesting to share.. Guess this woman’s age!!!! You’ll never believe it. Maybe being a vegetarian/vegan can make you feel and look younger after all! Click the link below.
“A vegan is someone who, for various reasons, chooses to avoid using or consuming animal products. While vegetarians choose not to use flesh foods, vegans also avoid dairy and eggs, as well as fur, leather, wool, and cosmetics or chemical products tested on animals. Veganism is a component of a cruelty-free lifestyle. Living vegan provides numerous benefits to animals’ lives, the environment and to our own health through a healthy diet and lifestyle”
“The United Nations has reported that a vegan diet can feed many more people than an animal based diet. Animal agriculture takes a devastating toll on the earth. It’s an inefficient way of producing food, since feed for farm animals requires land, water, fertilizer, and other resources that could otherwise have been used directly for producing human food. Animal waste from massive feedlots and factory farms is a leading cause of pollution in our groundwater and rivers. The same factory farm methods that are used to produce most meats are also used to produce most milk and eggs. Cows and chickens live short lives caged, drugged, mutilated, and do not get the freedom that they need. Even though chickens can live up to 15 years, they’re usually slaughtered when their egg production rates decline after just two years! Vegan foods, such as whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and beans, are low in fat, contain no cholesterol and are rich in fiber and nutrients. Vegans can get all the protein they need from legumes and grains, calcium from broccoli, kale, collard greens, tofu, fortified juices and soymilks, iron from chickpeas, spinach, pinto beans and soy products and B12 from fortified foods and supplements! With careful planning, a vegan diet can provide the same nutrients you can get from a regular diet! ”
