Dr. Matthew Rossheim and co-researchers at George Mason University’s College of Health and Human Services, in the United States, analyzed the effects of the 2009 national ban on flavored cigarettes products on teens and young adults. Using the 2002-2017 data from the US National Survey on Drug Use and Health, they found that the prohibition decreased smoking in the 12-17 age group by 43%, and by 27% among young adults aged 18-25. The researchers suggested that a more comprehensive ban on all flavored tobacco products would lead to promising results. Many thanks for the study, Dr. Matthew Rossheim and co-researchers.

I’ll bet you are, if your lifestyle is vegan! Here is a tip on how to make mask-wearing more comfortable for your ears. You can keep the ear loops of your mask away from your ears, while maintaining a suitable mask position, by simply using a rubber band and paperclip. First, try securing the strings from your mask to the back of your head using a paperclip. This will avoid placement of the bands directly on your ears. Alternatively, if you find that the strings are fastened too tight, you can extend the ear loops by attaching rubber bands to each end, and then using the paperclip to secure it. Stay safe! Love you for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all humans and us all co-inhabitants. Thank you for watching. And now, the weather around the world.Plastic bag sales greatly reduced in United Kingdom after implementation of bag charge. Sales of single-use plastic bags in England have plummeted since the 2015 introduction of a 5 pence charge per plastic bag in large supermarkets across the country. In the last year alone, major retailers Asda, Marks and Spencer, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, the Co-operative Group, Tesco, and Waitrose collectively sold 322 million fewer bags than in the 2018-2019 period. The average consumer in England now uses up to four plastic bags a year from the main retailers, compared to 140 bags annually in 2014. Furthermore, since the introduction of the charge, £178 million has been donated to charity. The United Kingdom is a Shining World Wise Leadership Award and a Shining World Leadership Awards for Animal Protection and Kindness laureate. Congratulations, United Kingdom!

In today’s news, UN-Habitat in Yemen receives contribution from Qatar, new studies reveal importance of early intervention for COVID-19, environmentalists reintroduce oysters to waterways around US city, World Food Programme uses rejected vegetables to feed schoolchildren in Kenya, museum in Denmark is dedicated to understanding happiness, analysts predict strong growth for textured vegetable protein market, and orca is blessed with new calf after losing previous one.Qatar supports United Nations project to benefit Yemen. The United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) has received US$2 million from the Qatar Fund for Development to clear away debris created by years of conflict in the Yemeni city of Sa’dah. Much of the waste is hazardous to the public’s health and will be disposed of safely by trained professionals. The cleanup plan will also recruit young people to salvage rubble that can be used to repair and rebuild houses. The charitable organizations expect that removing some of the physical consequences of war will help purify the local environment, facilitate the return of displaced persons and improve their livelihoods. Our heartfelt appreciation, State of Qatar and United Nations Human Settlements Programme! May forever-compassionate Allah bestow boundless grace on the spirited Yemeni people as they seek to attain peace and safety, in Heaven’s embrace!Researchers discover timing is key when combating viruses. Several new studies suggest that a class of proteins called interferons may be able to suppress replication of the virus that causes COVID-19 when administered early on. A team at Cochin Hospital in Paris, France, found that severely affected patients had an exaggerated inflammatory response and a low interferon count. Also, the protein deficiency was worse in persons who died from the coronavirus compared with those who survived. Meanwhile, scientists at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology noticed that in extreme cases of COVID-19, there was increased interferon activity in monocyte immune cells. This apparent contradiction in findings may be explained by the fact that as viruses replicate, they have their own proteins capable of suppressing immune molecules, including interferons. So, to be effective, it is crucial to boost the immune system before viral replication peaks. Otherwise, a delayed interferon response will summon too many monocytes, causing harmful inflammation and tissue damage. Thank you, dedicated researchers, for doing your best to find a cure for COVID-19. May an effective treatment soon become available as humanity makes more compassionate food choices, in Celestial favor and protection.Up next, environmentalists reintroduce oysters to waterways around US city.

If you need to be out and about during the pandemic, here are some tips on taking a taxi or using a ride-hailing service. Be sure to sit in the back seat so you are physically distanced from the driver as much as possible. If you didn’t pay for your ride in advance through an app, try tapping a contactless credit or debit card. This is faster and safer than using other means of payment. If you can’t avoid touching a payment terminal or cash, use hand sanitizer immediately afterward, or wash your hands with soap as soon as possible after leaving the car. This is a good example of why it’s smart to carry some sanitizer or disinfectant wipes with you all the time. Thank you for tuning in. Love you for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all humans and us all co-inhabitants. And now, the worldwide weather.New York City seeks to reestablish indigenous genus in adjacent waters. Oysters were once abundant in the waterways of the Big Apple, but overharvesting and pollution caused a serious decline in their numbers. The bivalves contribute significantly to a healthy marine ecosystem by removing nitrogen and suspended solids as they filter the water for food. They also bunch together to form reefs that protect the coast against tidal surges, provide habitat for smaller organisms and help prevent beach erosion. Students and volunteers with the Billion Oyster Project, based on Governors Island, have been reintroducing the aquatic species to New York Harbor since 2014. To date they have planted over 45 million live oysters, and the early research stations show that the water-breathing animals are doing well. Three cheers, Billion Oyster Project, and all involved! Your devoted efforts are a wonderful investment in our planet’s future, with blessings of the Providence.UN agency salvages produce for school lunches. When farmers in Kenya grow crops for export, only the best-looking vegetables are selected. Typically, many metric tons of ugly but edible produce are trashed each day. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is changing that. For three schools in the capital city of Nairobi, the UN agency was able to obtain almost five metric tons of green beans, peas and broccoli – enough to serve lunch to 2,200 children for 75 school days. The initiative serves to combat hunger and at the same time provides a powerful incentive for students to continue attending classes. God bless you, United Nations World Food Programme, for your marvelous and long-standing mission! We pray that all nations will soon embrace veganism as the solution to acute food shortages and the only means to achieve peace.Researchers open happiness exhibition in Copenhagen.

Textured vegetable protein (TVP) is a manufactured food ingredient derived from soybeans. It has a texture similar to ground beef and is often used as a meat substitute. According to MarketsandMarkets, a research firm headquartered in India, the value of the global market for TVP will grow an average of 6.2% annually, reaching US$1.5 billion by 2025.

May we soon see brighter days as humanity achieves a vegan world, colored by kindness, in the all-embracing love of the Divine.Famous whale gives birth to lively baby. The waterways just west of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, are home to three schools of orcas. Researchers have labeled the pods J, K and L, and in September 2020 whale watchers noticed a little one swimming with the J pod. The Center for Whale Research was able to identify the mother as J35, nicknamed Tahlequah. This is especially heartwarming news because her previous offspring, born in 2018, did not survive. Tahlequah attracted international attention when she carried her dead calf with her for 17 days. Orcas were listed as endangered in 2005, and conservationists view every successful birth as significant for their survival. Way to go, Tahlequah and diligent researchers!
