With the Commonwealth Games in full swing, it seems like a good time to take a look at the link between veganism- often considered a very restrictive diet- and athletic success. Can you excel as a world class athlete without meat, eggs or milk?

From Paul McCartney to Justin Bieber; 'Hey, you can be kind! Catch this!'

A PETA has become a buzzword because it is not a one-issue organisation. We watch the news, jump on stories and interject animal welfare issues into everything that we possibly can, from fashion and science to dog homelessness and how pigs become pork pies.

The enduring struggle to curb degenerative diseases through improved nutrition has reached a critical juncture. Knowledge that sugar, not saturated fat, promotes these diseases is spreading widely.

Before you begin to worry about what you'll eat, it's a lot easier than you would think. All big supermarket chains carry a variety of vegetarian friendly food including mince, sausages and even ready meals. I'm not going to pretend that vegetarian bacon tastes remotely like the real thing, but generally speaking most vegetarian products are great.

'Lather on the sunscreen if you want to be safe in the sun' is the word on the street and yet I beg to differ. I have rather controversial views on sun protection and really believe that we need a fresh approach.

The fact is, roughly 90% of people taking cholesterol-lowering drugs do not really need them. Their cholesterol problem is caused by the cholesterol and animal fat in the foods they eat. If they were to eliminate animal products and other fatty foods from their diets, the problem would vanish for the vast majority.

Eating a Cheap, Plant-based Diet That's Full of Protein Is Easy

Heather Irish | Posted 12.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Heather Irish

The word "vegan" used to scare me. I grew up in America's Midwest where cheese was on almost every single dish - it was even on salad served with a creamy salad dressing. I loved cheese, ice cream, cheesecake... I could do without meat but dairy?! Also where would I get my protein and wouldn't it be expensive? These are common misconceptions about transitioning to a vegan/plant-based lifestyle.

Why Adopting The Vegan Diet is Easier Than You Think

I became vegan about two years-ago. I have to admit, it was a decision made for health reasons. After suffering from some fairly serious digestive problems over the course of a decade, I was desperate, so I decided to try it. The next day I started a plant-based diet, and though I'm sure I've inadvertently made some mistakes along the way, I haven't diverged from it.

Oprah Winfrey once said that the start of a new year offers "another chance for us to get it right". One way that we can "get it right" in the year ahead - whether our goal is to improve our health, reduce our ecological footprint or help end the exploitation of others - is to stop eating animals.
