Go vegan! On World Health Day, what better time to look at improving your health in one simple step? Especially as this year’s theme is “ageing and health”. On average, vegans are slimmer, trimmer and healthier than meat-eaters are. Their risk of getting some of today’s biggest killers such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer and strokes is much lower and their life expectancy is higher. Just see what a meat-free diet can do for you!

Add to that the fact that you will be saving the lives of around 100 animals a year, sparing them from a life of horrific suffering on a factory farm. Animals on factory farms are crammed together in filthy conditions and denied the opportunity to root for food, raise their young or even feel the sun on their backs.

Factory farms also provide the perfect breeding ground for pathogens to grow and spread. You’ve heard of bird flu, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and swine flu? These diseases are all linked to factory farming as the unsanitary conditions allow germs to spread and mutate easily. There are so many good reasons to go vegan and not a single reason not to.

And just to give you an extra helping hand, we’ll send you one of our free vegetarian/vegan starter kits, so ditch that meat today and embrace your new healthy, compassionate lifestyle. Happy World Health Day!
