More than anything else, eating meat contributes heavily to global warming and climate change.
Jane Velez-Mitchell, animal rights activist and journalist, author and widely known for her work on television including specials on CNN, talks about how eating meat also causes major health problems such as heart disease, strokes, cancer, dementia and alzheimer’s. Jane also talked about what we can eat as vegans and outlined what we can do to become activists.
She had been a vegetarian but stopped eating dairy products as well when she interviewed Howard Lyman, a fourth generation Montana cattle rancher who got sick from eating meat and ended up writing a book titled “Mad Cowboy” which is about his inspirational story of personal transformation from eating meat to becoming vegan. He was also on the Oprah Winfrey Show where he revealed the deadly impact of the livestock industry on our well being, our health and the environment.
