Go Rosie!

The comedian, artist, and philanthropist recently told People Magazine that she’s 12 pounds lighter ever since adopting a plant-based diet post-heart attack.

“I had a really sedentary lifestyle and that’s deadly,” she says. “It took a heart attack for me to learn to take care of myself… Now I feel like I’ve been given a second chance at life.”

O’Donnell, 50, added that she used to feel tired and sluggish but now feels “full, but lighter, and I have more energy.” For other vegans out there – sounds familiar, right?

As we mentioned yesterday, Rosie recently taped an interview with Dr. Oz that will focus on heart disease – a killer that claims the lives of more women than men. “233,00 a year. every 20 seconds a woman has a heart attack in america. 50% of deaths happen in the first hour,” she wrote on her blog.

The Dr. Oz episode airs October 8th.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
