When Dr. T. Colin Campbell discovered that animal protein causes tumor growth, I listened. When the editor in chief of the American Journal of Cardiology explained why all humans should eat plant-based, I listened. When the Permanente Journal, Midland Memorial Hospital, Montefiore Health, Highland Hospital, and many others—like Dr. Greger at Nutrition Facts, and the Plant Pure Nation programs—continue to educate and support the public’s health with this, I listen. Especially since my surgeon told me to do this twenty-five years ago. It’s no surprise that this is also the ecological remedy that the climate change scientists have called for. Here are a few of our favorite support resources that motivate us to make plant-based choices:

When providing food for others, I find it wisest to not even mention that the animal products are missing. Because, if it’s tasty and filling, nobody really notices.

Affordable plant-based meals can also be found at Buddhist Cafes (contact them to verify which centers serve food).
