For those......

who need tv to tell them when something is "real"......and for those that are unfamiliar with some of the environmental consequences of eating the "standard american diet".

Do it for the animals (their lives belong to them, not you), do it for the planet, do it for your health.....go vegan. Or, at the very least, begin your journey in that direction.

I heard about this many years ago. Looks like it isn't news unless Oprah (or someone like her) talks about it. It's funny because I remember leaving a comment on one/two of your posts about how celebrity 'endorsements' would probably have a big impact on the public. ... 117 lbs????? The average American eats 117 lbs of 'red meat' a year???? How is that even possible? Oh good grief. What does she mean "it's really tough to do" - No, It's NOT!!!! That tiny little statement is a subliminal message. Sorry, I'm commenting while the video is running. Is that Russell Simmons? He's vegan? Well that's good because I know he wields influence. ... Thanks for sharing the video. Sorry for the lame play-by-play comment! :) And I'm glad that Russell Simmons is so well-spoken here. He has a lot of people who will listen to him, but people who might not have because of any pre-conceived ideas about him will think differently when they see him like this. ... Ok, I'm done now. :)
