On today’s program, we review three different books, all of which express the same powerful message for the physical, emotional, and ecological benefits of a plant-based lifestyle. These three books are, “Eating Animals” by Jonathan Safran Foer, “The Engine 2 Diet” by Rip Esselstyn, and “The China Study” by T. Colin Campbell, PhD and Thomas M. Campbell II, MD. The author discusses what it means to eat meat, coming from an inhumanely industrialized system, which causes immense suffering to animals and rampant destruction of the environment. “Eating Animals” quickly became a New York Times bestseller, and later formed the basis for a documentary of the same title. The film is directed by Christopher Quinn, and narrated and co-produced by renowned actress, Natalie Portman, who, after reading the book, immediately switched from a vegetarian diet to being fully vegan. Our next book is, “The Engine 2 Diet” by Rip Esselstyn. Rip is a former Austin, Texas, USA firefighter, professional triathlete and health activist. Through “the Engine 2 Diet” program he developed, he transformed the wellness of the entire Austin Fire Department. “The Engine 2 Diet” is a low-fat, plant-based plan that seeks to prevent or even reverse illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and cancer. For over 40 years, Dr. T. Colin Campbell, has been on the forefront of nutrition research and the advocacy of a low-fat, whole food, plant-based diet. His legacy, “The China Study,” is one of the largest, most comprehensive studies on the relationship between nutrition and cancer, heart, and metabolic diseases ever conducted. It was launched through a partnership between Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine, using data collected over a 20-year time span. In conclusion, these three inspirational books take the readers on different excursions of discovery concerning the food we eat, along with the effects it has on humans, the animals, and the Earth. The unifying message is clear: For us to prosper in health and happiness, we must quickly turn away from meat, dairy, fish, and eggs and embrace the life-saving, benevolent vegan diet today!

Today, we are excited to bring you the story of the UK’s first, multi-award winning frozen vegan pizza company, One Planet Pizza, proudly co-founded by a father-and-son team, Mike and Joe Hill. Being a pioneer on many fronts, One Planet Pizza is the UK’s first ever crowd-funded 100% vegan food company. "Well, pizza, as they say, is one of the world’s most favorite foods! In the U.K. alone, it’s worth £480 million, and our aim is just to get perhaps one percent of that market, so that would be tens of thousands of people eating vegan pizza, rather than pizzas with meat and dairy." Mike not only saw the opportunity to introduce great pizzas to the market, but he also realized that people desperately needed better vegan alternatives, to assist them to step forward and bravely make a positive switch in their diet. "One of the phrases we use all the time is something called 'Pizza with Purpose.' So the idea is that we use pizza as an agent of change and it’s a way of encouraging people to eat less dairy, less meat." Mike’s son, Joe Hill, calls himself the “Chief Pizza Distributor.”Together with their like-minded shareholders, they are leading the company to be even more sustainable on many levels. Packaging is one of their outstanding achievements. Their ‘Zero to landfill packaging’ means all their pizza boxes are 100% compostable and all other packaging is fully recyclable. All the company’s recyclable wastes are shredded on site, given another life through composting and other eco-friendly processes. Bravo, One Planet Pizza, for leading by example, using innovative community supported fund-raising strategies, and putting so much hard work into developing such a successful product for the growing healthy vegan food market. You have made clear that every slice that your customers eat is a statement that they care for the environment and the lives of all animals.
