Los Angeles is hoping to persuade people to become vegetarian – at least one day per week
Los Angeles is hoping to persuade people to become vegetarian – at least one day per week. Under a resolution unanimously approved by the city council this week, all future Mondays in the City of Angels have been declared "Meatless Mondays."
It's part of an international campaign to cut down on meat consumption for health and environmental reasons.

Re: Los Angeles is hoping to persuade people to become vegetarian – at least one day per week
I kicked colon cancer by eating mostly raw and raising my pH. Now it's fish, and beef for the protein and B12. And I juice an apple, cucumber, celery, carrots, ginger and three kinds of green leafy's every night.

And I cheat once a week or so. When I go to Los Angeles I can't resist the awesome restaurants and fast food Fatburger, the god of all hamburger joints. Fried food is what I stay away from mostly. It took me awhile to stop jonesing for french fries.

Although the results vary, studies from around the world have suggested that a high consumption of meat is linked to an increased risk of colon cancer. In all cases the worry is confined to red meat, not chicken.

The best evidence comes from a pair of large 2005 studies, one from Europe, the other from the United States. The European research tracked 478,000 men and women who were free of cancer when the study began. The people who ate the most red meat (about 5 ounces a day or more) were about a third more likely to develop colon cancer than those who ate the least red meat (less than an ounce a day on average). Their consumption of chicken did not influence risk one way or the other, but a high consumption of fish appeared to reduce the risk of colon cancer by about a third.

The US study added important information about the effects of long-term meat consumption. The subjects were 148,610 people between the ages of 50 and 74. A high consumption of red and processed meats was linked with a substantial increase in the risk of cancer in the lower colon and rectum. Conversely, the long-term consumption of large amounts of fish and poultry appeared protective.

These two studies are impressive, and they don't stand alone. A meta-analysis of 29 studies of meat consumption and colon cancer concluded that a high consumption of red meat increases risk by 28%, and a high consumption of processed meat increases risk by 20%.

I stopped eating meat for 6-8 weeks and noticed no benefits at all.

I lost no weight and felt no better.

Now I am eating some meat again, and feel strong again.

The cotton industry, and urbanization (2 million acres in the US are lost each year to new housing), roads, etc, all contribute to animal deaths, and the destruction of whole ecosystems.

So how are you going to avoid hurting animals without killing yourself right now?
