Dear blogging buddies,
For those who are keeping a watchful eye on the ever pressing issue of global warming, it came to my attention today that the ex-Beatle, Paul McCartney, has teamed up with Yoko Ono, to promote the Meatfree Monday campaign. The idea behind this latest campaign is to lower greenhouse gas emissions which result from the ever growing beef industry. So how do you feel about this famous duo asking you to give up meat on Mondays? A recent study by Newsweek showed that those who ate large amounts of red and processed meats (steak, cold cuts, bacon, sausage) have an increased risk of death from cancer and heart disease. So that means that choosing a salad over a steak could reduce this risk considerably.
