An organization that advocates eating morewholesome vegan foods and less of those foods derived from animals. This change induces (in all life on Earth) healthier, happier, more stress free and longer lives! It reduces air, water and soil pollution! It greatly reduces our use of water and land for growing food and helps to save the Earth's rain forests! We also advocate taking compassionate action towards all life on Earth!

Vegetarian: 7 – 10 yrs. longer life (Press-Enterprise)
Healthy Vegan Diet: ? More Life
“As long as humans continue to be ruthless destroyers of lower living beings, we will never know health or peace. For as long as we massacre animals, we will kill each other. Indeed, those who sow the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.”
“Nothing will benefit human health or increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”
“We are the living gravesof murdered beasts, slaughtered to satisfy our appetites. How can we hope in this world to attain the peace we say we are so anxious to have?.”

John Robbins, p-282 of his fantastic new book,
“The Food Revolution,”
“What is at stake today is enormous; it is the destiny of life on Earth. At such a time, walking a path of honoring ourselves and the living planet, is our responsibility as citizens of the planet, but it is something more, as well.”
“It is also a joy, and a privilege.”

“It is my view that the vegetarian manner of living, by its purely physical effect on the human temperament, would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind.”
“The greatness of a nationand its moral progress canbe judged by the way its animals are treated.”
“Does it not shame you to mingle murder and blood with the earth’s beneficent fruits? Other carnivores you call savage and ferocious…yet for them, murder is the only means of sustenance! Whereas to you it is a superfluous luxury and crime.”
“Meat eating animals are generally more cruel and violent then herbivores, therefore a vegetarian diet would produce a more compassionate person.”
“If chimpanzees have consciousness, if they are capable of abstractions, do they not have what until now has been described as ‘human rights’? How smart does a chimp have to be before killing him constitutes murder?”
Nobel Peace Prize - Acceptance Speech
“The human spirit is not dead....It has come to believe that compassion, in which all ethics must take root, can only attain its full breadth and depth if it embraces all livingcreatures and does not limit itself to mankind.”
“The First Step”
“If (we aspire)…toward a righteous life,…(we should not injure)… animals.”
“I have no doubt that it is a part of the destiny of the human race, in its gradual improvement, to leave off eating animals, as surely as the savage tribes have left “off eating each other when they came in contact with the more civilized.”

CHORUS: I’m a vegetarian. My life, the killing transcends.
The animals are my friends, and I don’t eat my friends.
1. Long ago when my daddy was young, he’d hunt and fish with his brothers.
They brought home food for the family, and often shared it with others.
2. When Daddy brought home the bodies of all those creatures who used to run, swim or fly,
Cut out their guts and fried ‘em in a skillet, I just wanted to cry. That’s why….CHORUS
3. Now I’ve learned many other reasons why I should not eat my animal friends.
It harms my body and it hurts Mother Earth, and on her all life depends.
4. For every sixteen pounds of grain you feed a cow, one pound of beef is all you take away.
It’s inefficient, and it’s inhumane, when 40,000 starve to death each day. That’s why…CHORUS
5. Salmonella and e coli, the animals contaminate. They say we must irradiate.
Mountains of manure pollute the water and the land. The solution is on my plate.
6. Diabetes and osteoporosis, heart disease and cancer –
You can get them all from eating animals. A plant-based diet is the answer. That’s why…CHORUS
7. Most of the corn and soy that’s grown is used to feed the animals humans eat.
Pesticided land could be returned to native forest if people would stop eating meat.
8. Factory farming features crowding and cruelty, sickness, filth and misery.
I cannot be a part of all that suffering. They are sentient beings just like you and me.
9. What if aliens came from space and regarded humans as inferior?
Would you like it if they farmed us for food because they thought they were superior?
10. And did you ever have a special pet? Don’t you think every animal wants to live
A life of freedom and choice, and to them, that is the gift I can give, because …CHORUS
11. You know the power of one committed person. You know the reasons for a veggie diet.
Have the courage to make the change. Follow your heart and really try it.
Let’s sing together:
CHORUS: We are vegetarians. Our lives, the killing transcends.
The animals are our friends, and we don’t eat our friends.
Yes, the animals are our friends, and we don’t eat our friends.
