TED Talk: starving blood vessels to cancer cells by eating certain things... all vegan certain things:
So why not just go vegan instead of what this guy is suggesting, which is to just add more of these foods to our diet. What effect would it have to only eat dark greens, nuts, seeds, fruits and berries? I'll tell you what effect- vegans have a much much lower risk of even developing the diseases he's talking about- cancer, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.

"We heard rumors of a new kind of economy emerging in Argentina. With hundreds of factories closing, waves of workers were locking themselves inside and running the workplaces on their own, with no bosses. Where we come from, a closed factory is just an inevitable effect of a model, the end of a story. In Argentina today, it's just the beginning."

Well, Toronto is about to be the host of the G20 Summit this year, and the main protest will take place at Queen's Park. Already it has been released that over 10,000 plain-clothed police will be at the scene, military enforcement, private security guards and uniformed police officers.
The G20 Summit is made up of the top economic and political leaders of the world economy. They want to ensure that the economy functions in the favour of those who dominate the global economies. Often that is in direct conflict with the needs and interests of the majority of the world's people. It is a fact that people have a right to protest when they are not consulted or included in talks that will affect their lives.
Hopefully this will end up being a peaceful protest, and not turn into a nightmare like past events of this scale. It has often been found that the few idiots who egg on the police to become violent, including painful electromagnetic noise weapon use, tear gas and brute force, are the undercover police officers themselves.
This is a really powerful documentary, in my eyes, because I feel like the case for veganism has been presented so logically here that no one can refute it. It's one I would show to anyone who wants to become healthy, but has been taught that meat and dairy are essential. It's just not true.
I thought I would send a big hello out to everyone who tunes in to beautiful vegan once in a while. We haven't been posting much lately because we are days away from finishing the book!!!! It's called "conscious evolution: delicious, compassionate living" and I can't wait to show you!
It is our first book, and we've worked for over 3 years on the thing. There are 120 wonderful recipes, photos and journal entries from our travels, vegan facts, an animal ingredient dictionary, observations on changes felt from the experience of meditation and much much more!
I will be putting it up for sale on Lulu.com and on the blog here, and sending it off to the publisher I met with who liked when it was in it's infancy. We'll see what happens. Thank you so much to you all for just being out there, and for caring about the world around you. It means more than you know.
We are speechless as we listen to more and more reports of how catastrophic this oil spill will be for the planet and the innocent creatures who live here with us. The news is mainly talking about the loss of tourism and the devastation to the fishing industry, but I did find this video that addresses a little of what we can expect to see happening to the animals. Our hearts are breaking.
