Buddy Health Check

Vegetarian foods are naturally low in fat and cholesterol but high in nutrients, so you will never be weighed down when you need to be on the go. And because vegetarian diets work well for long-term weight loss, it’s no surprise that vegetarians are generally leaner and trimmer than meat-eaters. Going vegetarian also reduces your risk for heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer.

 “Even seemingly small choices can have a big impact on our health, our community and the world around us”, says Lara. “Going vegetarian is one of the easiest ways to improve our health, help countless animals and protect the Earth.”

 By adopting a vegetarian diet, you will also be helping countless animals. Factory-farmed animals are deprived of everything that is natural and important to them. They are packed into filthy, cramped sheds or cages and are often fed an unnatural diet that includes antibiotics and drugs. On factory farms, diseases often run rampant, and animals lack proper veterinary care, leaving them to suffer amidst their own waste. All animals who are killed for food – even those who are not raised on factory farms – suffer when they are transported to slaughter. They are beaten, kicked, prodded, crammed onto severely crowded Lorries and mishandled in other ways. These animals’ short lives come to a painful end at the slaughterhouse, where cows, goats and chickens typically have their throats cut and are often dismembered while they are still conscious. Billions of these living, breathing, thinking, feeling beings – whose senses are so similar to ours – suffer and die just so that we can eat meat.
