Earth Day has to be about more than just turning off lights. We need to reflect seriously on the impact that our individual choices are having on the planet and its inhabitants and start to make better ones.

Sun Protection in the Raw

'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.

The news that a baby giraffe at Copenhagen Zoo has been shot dead has provoked a storm of worldwide protest. Wildlife enthusiasts are described as 'saddened', animal rights campaigners are furious and petitions are flying around social media demanding the zoo's closure. But not me.

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

Maria Chiorando

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.

What and how much we eat, how we live and our levels of activity, are all important factors determining our health. Governments seem averse to being seen as 'nanny states' in regards to public health and diet recommendations. However, the growing obesity crisis clearly shows that the profitable global commercial food and drinks sector has the upper hand.

Since PETA's much publicised exposé on angora rabbit farming was released, several retailers have decided to stop stocking the product in their stores, which is good news, but it's likely that it's a calculated decision, now that the ugly face of the practice has been revealed to the public.

Beyonce- If I Were a Vegan

It seems to be an endemic misunderstanding that veganism is what people eat, or don't eat, and that's all there is to being a vegan. Even Beyonce hasn't quite got the hang of the whole vegan thing.

We've spent all day on the bus, with nothing to eat. Instead of stuffing our faces as soon as the driver set us free in Xi'an, we chose, insanely, to first cycle through the wild streets in search of our hostel. Now we are in an emergency situation. We must eat before all systems shut down for good.
