Book
Ninety-Five

If you’re searching for a unique holiday gift, or need some inspiration for yourself, this is the book for you. Ninety-Five: Meeting America’s Farmed Animals in Stories and Photographs is filled with stunning photographs and fascinating stories of rescued animals. It’s warm and inviting, presenting information about amazing farmed animals in a friendly format. Some of the animals will make you chuckle, others will move you, some may bring tears to your eyes, and some will just give you something to think about. All of them are fascinating.

Why is it called Ninety-Five? That’s the number of animals spared each year by one person’s decision to go vegan, according to the authors.

Variety Cuts Cancer

The consumption of a variety of fruits helps cut the risk of lung cancer by up to 23%, according to a recent study carried out by researchers from 10 countries. The European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study examined data from nearly 500,000 people. Results revealed that participants who regularly consumed more than eight varieties of vegetables reduced their lung cancer risk by up to 23%, as compared to those to regularly eating less than four varieties.

Prior EPIC study results show a link between the quantity of fruit and vegetable consumption and lower lung cancer risk, especially with regards to squamous cell carcinoma, a type of lung cancer.

Inspiration
Compassionate Holiday Billboards

The holidays are approaching and there’s no better time to bring compassion to the table! This season, Farm Animal Rights Movement, producers of Meatout Mondays, will be asking folks to save lives by living vegan. We’ve launched a billboard campaign throughout December, which links people to our newly revamped website, LiveVegan.org. The friendly billboards (pictured left) will run in major cities throughout the U.S. including Atlanta, Houston, and Los Angeles.

Help us spread compassion for the holidays! A generous gift of $500 will pay for a full billboard, and smaller donations can be pooled.

Visit www.farmusa.org/donate and mention "holiday billboard" in the comment box!

 

Pass it on!
