Goodmylk: A Return to Ahimsa - With ‘Plantrepreneur’ Abhay Rangan (vegan), Part 3 of 3

Goodmylk: A Return to Ahimsa - With ‘Plantrepreneur’ Abhay Rangan (vegan), Part 3 of 3

Abhay is also highly gifted in the arts. He is the author of a vegan advocacy novel, titled “The Green Monk,” and is an accomplished Indian classical singer in the Carnatic vocal music tradition. It was Stephen Sturdivant, a vegan angel investor in Dallas, Texas, who infused Goodmylk with a seed funding of US$400,000 in 2018. Today, Goodmylk’s products are produced in facilities located all over India. Abhay is quick to acknowledge that he owes Goodmylk’s success in no small measure to his team of dedicated professionals. In April 2021, Goodmylk teamed up with one of India’s most prominent athletes, 24-year-old tennis professional Vishwajeet Sangle. In his nine years as an animal rights activist and plantrepreneur, Abhay has earned numerous accolades and awards. He has the following insight for people in search of a direction in life: “I think it's important to focus on how to be altruistic in our lives. I would argue that maybe one of the best purposes to have in life is to leave the world a better place than when we came into it. So, I would recommend that for anybody who is willing to do something more for the planet, maybe look at plant-based food, maybe look at how you can add value to vegans, and how you can add value to animals and the more marginalized groups of people that share our planet with us.” When it comes to veganism, the world-renowned humanitarian and fully enlightened spiritual Master Supreme Master Ching Hai has a similar message for humankind. “Dairy is included together with meat because the cruelty and torture is the same, and the end result is a horrible death for the poor animals. So please, everyone, again: Forego the disease-ridden animal products and join instead in adopting the lifesaving, healthy, compassionate, life-giving vegan diet. Everyone will be much healthier and happier for it, and the animals will rejoice with you and bless you.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully presents Mr. Abhay Rangan and family the Shining World Right Entrepreneur Award, plus a gift of US$10,000 as a loving token of encouragement for your noble aspiration. With all love and cheer in God's Blessing. May Heaven reward you and yours greatly!”

Goodmylk: A Return to Ahimsa - With ‘Plantrepreneur’ Abhay Rangan (vegan), Part 2 of 3

Goodmylk: A Return to Ahimsa - With ‘Plantrepreneur’ Abhay Rangan (vegan), Part 2 of 3

Abhay’s social entrepreneurship has earned him the distinction of being the youngest Indian entrepreneur to make the prestigious Forbes “Asia 30 Under 30” list – in 2019, at the age of 22. Abhay’s vegan journey began at age 13 when his father showed him the truth about the violence that takes place every day in dairy operations across India. “I think the enormity of abuse that goes down in slaughterhouses, dairy farms, and egg farms are really a horrifying tale in the history of humanity.” “I think all of us, inherently, do not like animals being hurt. All of us are inherently compassionate towards animals, but we're not confronted with the truth that animals are hurt every day in slaughterhouses, egg farms, dairy farms, etc. And I think this should stop because it's a blight on humanity.” Apart from the issue of ethics, Abhay also sees environmental degradation and climate change as powerful reasons for the world to switch to a vegan lifestyle. Abhay’s concern about the unsustainability of a meat and dairy diet is rooted in solid science. One way Abhay tries to loosen this firm cultural grip of dairy is to raise public awareness about the negative health consequences of dairy consumption via social media and public speaking. Another way Abhay tackles India’s attachment to dairy is to create dairy alternatives that are not only affordable and accessible, but also “functional.” Abhay is sometimes confronted by well-meaning citizens as to what would happen to the livelihood of the estimated 8.5 million dairy farmers in India if dairy were displaced. This is his response. “They can manufacture plant-based alternatives. And by setting up and financially empowering these hubs, we get to create entrepreneurial hubs in every single corner of the country.” Abhay points out that this is especially true if the government would recognize the negative impact of dairy on the environment, public health, and the economy, and direct the subsidies and tax cuts currently afforded to the dairy industry towards plant-based operations.

Goodmylk: A Return to Ahimsa - With ‘Plantrepreneur’ Abhay Rangan (vegan), Part 1 of 3

Goodmylk: A Return to Ahimsa - With ‘Plantrepreneur’ Abhay Rangan (vegan), Part 1 of 3

Like many mission-focused plantrepreneurs today, Abhay is concerned about our world’s dire climate change situation and sees veganism as the only viable solution. He launched his start-up company Goodmylk specifically to champion veganism in his homeland of India. Since its launch in 2016, Goodmylk has seen explosive growth. Abhay chose plant-based dairy alternatives as his arena because dairy is the biggest hurdle in India’s rising vegan movement. If anyone is qualified for the task of overcoming this hurdle, however, it would be someone with the drive, intelligence, and business acumen of Abhay. “My family has always been compassionate to animals. They taught me the same values growing up.” Abhay and his sister Varidhi adopted veganism at a young age and became avid animal activists. In her interview with us, Varidhi related how they were able to turn many hearts and minds. “So first, we bring about that point of view, saying, ‘Everybody is compassionate from birth. They have innate compassion. And you should bring that out and then extend the same to all animals, and not just consider a few as pets and the other animals as food.’” “Mom used to make our products, and I would come back home from college, take them in my backpack and deliver them on my motorcycle all over Bangalore.” As Abhay and his mother, Veena, improved on the quality and shelf-stability of their “mylk,” however, word spread and orders began to pour in. Soon, it was a struggle to keep up with the demand. In the years from 2014 to 2018, Abhay was a top student at CMR National PU College in Bangalore, where he studied telecommunications engineering. As Goodmylk began to take off, however, he made the difficult decision to drop out of school and focus on the growing enterprise. In most parts of India, such a move would have courted strong parental opposition. Abhay’s parents, however, threw their full support behind him.

Dr. Jeanette Rowley (vegan) - Human Rights are Animal Rights, Part 2 of 2

Dr. Jeanette Rowley (vegan) - Human Rights are Animal Rights, Part 2 of 2

In order for a compassionate society to exist, Dr. Rowley emphasizes the importance of using protective rights as a means to evoke a deeper level of compassion that extends to animals as well. “We should have a system of ethical justice that includes animals in our community, and we should see rights as protections from arbitrary oppression and emancipate suffering.” “Protective rights are about emancipating from suffering, and on that ground, animals, other animals are equal beneficiaries.” Under the premise of protective rights, the world-renowned spiritual leader, our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai has a stern message for the world leaders, whose lack of action within their governments toward the injustice perpetuated towards animals, the climate, and humans, continue to exacerbate the current global crisis rather than resolve it. “If the planet has trouble, if all people or any people are killed because of the climate change, the government leaders, I say, are guilty. Because they have the power to stop it, to change it. I hope they rethink about that, so they don’t have to go down to hell and answer to the king of hell or the maya, waiting for them, satan waiting for them. Like will attract like. No need to say that I’m threatening anybody. You are in power, you are in privilege, you are well paid, you’re getting rich by the tax-payers of your country, you should do what you must do in order to rescue your people. And if you don’t, then you’re guilty of murdering humans, not just animals. I’m telling you the truth like that.” On June 26, 2020, Supreme Master Ching Hai called for the world to wake up and be vegan, while explaining the heavy karmic burden placed upon those who choose not to. Dr. Rowley thought Master’s message was very powerful and brought up the assistance offered by the Vegan Society to help those who wish to join the vegan family and to facilitate them to start their vegan journey. Apart from creating vegan awareness through social media or advertising, Dr. Rowley encourages us to recognize a more subtle form of animal exploitation taking place under the radar, and to make a stand for veganism there as well for a transformative change in all aspects of society.

Greening French Cuisine with Chef Sébastien Kardinal (vegan), Part 2 of 2

Through his numerous YouTube videos, Mr. Kardinal encourages people to adopt the vegan lifestyle. He is best known for his creative, simple recipes which preserve the French culinary traditions, while using 100% plant-based ingredients. One section of his YouTube channel is called “Mes bonnes adresses.” Here, Sébastien shares video reviews of the many restaurants and cafés he has visited. Sébastien shares his dining experience at “Les Tonton Veg,” a restaurant serving a delightful array of vegan burgers along with exceptional home-made French fries seasoned with “herbes de Provence.” "The planet, it’s not sustainable. And ethically now, thanks to different associations, reality comes out and is on television for everyone to see. This is a real revolution."On December 13, 2017, Mr. Kardinal was a guest chef at the Veggie World festival in Marseille. At Veggie World Marseille, Sébastien presented a cooking demonstration for a vegan “egg-muffin.” This recipe can be found in his book “Ma Petite Crèmerie Vegan” (My Little Vegan Creamery). “The Veggie World in Marseille, I find that it’s also something that goes in an incredibly positive direction and I find it very encouraging. You can see the crowd that has been there all day. It was absolutely crazy. ”Mr. Kardinal works tirelessly to encourage people to adopt the vegan lifestyle. He contributes to the culinary pages of various magazines such as VegMag and Vegetarian Alternatives. He offers free online cooking demonstrations and courses. And, as a predominant French Vegan Culinary chef, Sébastien was invited to participate in the Vegan Festival in Montreal, Canada in 2017 and 2018. At the conclusion of the interview, Mr. Kardinal shared his wish for a vegan world. “My wish would be for things to happen much faster than in reality, but I know it's going to take time. And maybe a vegan world be happening. I will do everything I can to guide people towards it because I think it’s the right thing to do. And I am hopeful that people will understand and change because it’s good.”

Dr. Jeanette Rowley (vegan) - Human Rights are Animal Rights, Part 1 of 2

12:53

Dr. Jeanette Rowley (vegan) - Human Rights are Animal Rights, Part 1 of 2

Dr. Jeanette Rowley has said: “A society that respects veganism and accommodates vegans cannot sustain and has to address entrenched prejudice against nonhuman animals.” With a strong socio-legal background, Dr. Rowley has garnered worldwide recognition as a leading authority on veganism, human rights, animal rights, and the law. In 2012, she founded the International Vegan Rights Alliance (IVRA), now known as the International Rights Network (IRN), to propagate anti-speciesism. Dr. Rowley has generated vast international interest and motivation in addressing the very important subject of veganism, which corresponds to the human right to eliminate all kinds of suffering, including that of an animal. Inspired by the concept of “otherness” in philosophy developed by Emmanuel Levinas, Dr. Rowley strongly advocates for capitalizing on the vegans in the UK having the protection of human rights and equality law to encourage massive shifts in law and policy – regulations much needed to free our animal friends from arbitrary abuse. The International Vegan Rights Alliance serves as a launchpad for vegan rights and animal rights. “The right to freedom of conscience is applicable to vegan convictions and this is represented in our equality law.” The freedom of conscience human right gives a person the freedom to have a thought, point of view, or even consider a fact that can be totally independent of other people’s opinion or viewpoint. In the book “Critical Perspectives on Veganism,” Dr Rowley wrote “Human Rights are Animal Rigts.” “We need to understand that the mission of modern human rights is to emancipate from suffering; that is the idea behind modern human rights.” “So, my argument is that, if human rights are about suffering, and it protects vegans, then it must reorientate to also protect animals as well, from suffering.” “The basic rule that we should really acknowledge is that we all suffer. The community of species, beings on this planet suffers, and that's what's really important. Protective rights are about emancipating from suffering, and on that ground, animals, other animals, are equal beneficiaries.”

Greening French Cuisine with Chef Sébastien Kardinal (vegan), Part 1 of 2

On today’s program, we are delighted to introduce the very active, high-profile French vegan chef, food critic, videographer, and author of numerous vegan cookbooks, Sébastien Kardinal. Mr. Kardinal is also a devoted vegan activist who tirelessly protects the lives of animals through his vegan cooking classes, video demonstrations, and as a food critic of vegetarian and vegan restaurants in France. A vegetarian since 1986, Sébastien has been creating plant-based recipes for over 20 years. Sébastien switched from a vegetarian to a vegan lifestyle after he met his partner, Laura, in 2007. Sébastien and his partner, Laura, wanted to do even more to promote the noble, compassionate vegan lifestyle. Together, they co-founded VG-Zone.net, an influential vegan website, providing critiques of restaurants, identifying places to shop for plant-based ingredients, and, of course, sharing latest recipes that they have invented. Then, in 2018, Sébastien started his own YouTube Channel. His book, “À la Française: La Tradition Façon Vegan” or “French Style: Vegan Tradition” combines traditional French gastronomy with vegan cuisine. A Bourguignon or a Blanquette without animal products? Yes, it is possible, delicious and easy! Sébastien offers excellent ways to preserve the spirit of traditional recipes, while making them in a benevolent way, eliminating cruelty to sentient beings and protecting the environment. In his book, “100 Ideas to Replace Meat,” Sébastien shows readers how to create delicious vegan versions of chorizo, ham, steak, and chicken nuggets. There are also delicious dishes which are full of surprises, such as vegan oriental meatballs, chick'in with ginger, and mini burgers sautéed with onions. In the book, “My Little Vegan Creamery,” Mr. Kardinal introduces simple ways to make vegan alternatives for many kinds of dairy products. Using nuts and seeds (cashews, almonds, sesame seeds, etc.), combined with fermentation techniques, Sébastien creates delectable vegan butters and creams, as well as many types of vegan cheeses, including feta, ricotta, and mozzarella. His wonderful recipes convey the clear message that we can still enjoy the French culinary traditions while maintaining the noble, compassionate vegan lifestyle.

Going Meatless with Kristie Middleton (vegan) - Transforming the Way You Eat and Live, Part 4 of 4

Going Meatless with Kristie Middleton (vegan) - Transforming the Way You Eat and Live, Part 4 of 4

In her book, Kristie shares tips and tricks to help people shift to the healthy, environmentally friendly vegan lifestyle. "I have a lot of tips and tricks for encouraging people to be able to stick with their intentions. And the first is to decide what it is that you're trying to do. So, maybe it's by doing something like a Meatless Monday. Another is to set a goal and articulate that goal. Another is to narrow down our options. The last is just to be gentle with yourself. Sometimes we will fall off the wagon, but it's really easy just to get right back on."According to David Simon’s book “Meatonomics,” the US government spends $38 billion each year to subsidize the meat and dairy industries, but only 0.04% of that to subsidize fruits and vegetables. "I think that we are seeing too many government subsidies that are being given to factory farms. And as a result of that, those foods are artificially less expensive than they should be."The market research firm, MarketsandMarkets, predicts that global sales of vegan meat alternatives could increase to US$8.3 billion by 2025. " We are seeing “meat-free” eating take on like no other time in history. Right now, we are seeing more than half of (the) people in the United States saying that they want to eat more plant-based food. It's happening globally as well. I follow entrepreneurship and I see more companies popping up all over the world, whether they're plant-based meat, eggs or dairy.""I've been vegan for twenty-plus years, and it's been the best decision that I have made in my life. And as our friend, Ken Chadwick from American University, said 'You have to just try it yourself. You won't know the benefits until you can actually experience them.' And it's not about perfection; it's about making progress."Supreme Master Ching Hai frequently reminds us of the environmental, health, and lifesaving benefits of the vegan lifestyle. She also pointed out that, in a vegan world, the level of consciousness would automatically rise, creating a heaven-like atmosphere.

Going Meatless with Kristie Middleton (vegan) - Transforming the Way You Eat and Live, Part 3 of 4

"There are so many wonderful personal success stories that I've heard from people over the years. One of my favorite examples that I share in my book is that of Ken Chadwick. Ken was the Dining Services Director at American University in Washington D.C. when I met him. And he kept hearing from students that they wanted more vegetarian/vegan options on their menus. …And so, he quickly teamed up with his dietitian and his chef on campus to ensure that there was a delicious, totally vegan option for breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts." "After eating a plant-based diet, he started losing weight very quickly, so quickly that his students called him 'The Incredible Shrinking Man.' He felt so much better though, he started exercising; he started running again, he took up boxing and he was able to stop taking all of his medications.""In my book, I share the story of one community that suffered the impacts of a local egg farm. And they lived there in relative peace and happiness for many years. And then, locally, an egg farmer bought the property down the street from their home. And this was not just any old egg farmer. It was an egg factory farm where they had hundreds of thousands of egg-laying hens confined in cages." "So, there they had hundreds of thousands of egg-laying hens producing tons of waste. And for Lita and her neighbors, sometimes the air was so putrid with ammonia fumes from the waste that they couldn't go outside. It caused their lungs to burn; it caused their eyes to burn. They would get dizzy; they would get nausea and stomach aches.""My neighbors right here next door have chickens. One was named Goldie and the other one was Red. And Goldie in particular just had this amazing personality. She would come over and eat some of the food on the ground that the other animals had knocked off of the feeder. And then she would go and take a nap, and roll around in the grass here in my yard, take dust baths or something that chickens do naturally in order to keep their feathers healthy." "And I think a lot of people don't realize that chickens are very intelligent, very sensitive animals, and they would be horrified if they knew the way that these animals are raised in order to produce their food."

Going Meatless with Kristie Middleton (vegan) - Transforming the Way You Eat and Live, Part 2 of 4

On today’s program, Kristie shares how she and her team successfully worked together with these institutions. "Our role in these programs was basically everything, except for preparing the food ourselves. So, we would conceptualize what the program could look like, we would provide the education behind why they should add such plant-based options to their menus.” "We're not requiring, or we're not requesting them to make tremendous changes to what they were doing, but just by swapping out one ingredient with another, they could offer a delicious plant-based option." "A lot of school districts and universities operate on what they call 'cycle menus' where they essentially repeat the same options over the course of a few weeks. So, we would create sample cycle menus, showing what they might be able to put on their menus to integrate a Meatless Monday or other plant-based options."Dozens of cities in the US, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, and Washington, DC, are encouraging the plant-based lifestyle through resolutions for “Meatless Monday." " 'Meatless Monday' is now in over 30 countries around the world. I've met organizers from South Africa to Israel and Jamaica, as well as France, all of these people around the world who are trying to encourage people to eat 'meat-free' just one day a week." Kristie believes that “Meatless Monday” provides a good steppingstone and helps people shift towards the compassionate, noble vegan lifestyle. Supreme Master Ching Hai frequently speaks about the essential role of the media in promoting the noble, compassionate, Earth-saving vegan lifestyle, especially during this critical time for our planet. "The printed words are very powerful. So, the media is a useful tool to awaken one another at this crucial time, a time when our planet and the lives on it are in danger. That’s why I’m so glad to see many television and radio channels starting to broadcast about the urgent situation of our planet, and even the solution of the vegan diet. In fact, the most urgent role of the media right now is to become vegan themselves - compassionate, noble, and doing good deeds and to inform people of this urgent action. They should be an example, the media."

Going Meatless with Kristie Middleton (vegan) - Transforming the Way You Eat and Live, Part 1 of 4

Kristie Middleton is the Vice President of Business Development at Rebellyous Foods, and former senior food policy director for the Shining World Benevolence Award recipient, Humane Society of the United States. Certified in Plant-Based Nutrition, she is also a nationally renowned speaker. “After starting to do some research into factory farming, that's when I learned that, despite what I thought when I was a little girl, the real problem with eggs was that we factory farm hundreds of millions of animals, confining egg-laying hens in what are called battery cages. These are cages where there are 6 to 8 birds confined in the space that's about the size of a standard desk drawer where they can't do any of their natural behaviors. I didn't know that to produce pork, we confined mother pigs in what are called gestation crates. They can't even turn around for the duration of their existence.” For several years, Kristie was the senior food policy director at the Humane Society of the United States. “There we worked with institutions like colleges, universities, hospitals, the military, essentially anyone that serves a lot of food, to help them identify opportunities to add more plant-based options to their menus.” Not only a working professional, Kristie is also the author of “Meatless: Transform the Way You Eat and Live ‒ One Meal at a Time.” “For example, if you want to become vegan, then maybe trying to designate a certain food that you typically enjoy and swapping out a plant-based option for that instead. Another thing is to actually articulate your goals. We’re 42% more likely to meet our goals if we share that with somebody, whether it's a friend or family, or we even write it down.” “We can make a tremendous impact on the world by going meat-free, even just one day a week. It would have the environmental savings of taking half a million cars off the road if everyone in the US went meat-free just one day a week. If we ate “meat-free” just one day a week, we will spare 1.4 billion animals from factory farms.”

Healing from the Inside Out with Food - With Chef Day Radley (vegan), Part 2 of 2

Healing from the Inside Out with Food - With Chef Day Radley (vegan), Part 2 of 2

Today, we continue featuring Chef Day Radley, who shines brightly as a torchbearer of the Earth-saving plant-based movement. We were impressed by the success of her culinary school in London, The Vegan Chef Institute, which has produced more than 100 vegan chefs in less than two and a half years since its launch in November 2018. “I set up the school because I wanted to help create better chefs, which would then, in turn, mean that better food is being created in restaurants.” The first culinary course offered at The Vegan Chef Institute was called “Fast-Track Vegan Chef.” It sold out in just six days. Graduates are awarded a diploma, which helps them find employment as vegan chefs. Chef Radley continued developing a second course for home cooks around the world called “Online Vegan Chef Diploma.” Thus, the course focuses on quick, tasty, varied, creative, and nutritious dishes, such as the Green Soup, Vegan Cheese on Toast, and Chocolate Mousse Cake. In June 2021, Chef Radley will team up with nutritionist Rohini Bajekal, a Board-Certified Lifestyle Medicine Professional and a member of Plant-Based Health Professionals UK to develop a third course called “Online Vegan Nutrition Diploma, aiming to help their students understand vegan nutrition and apply that knowledge to meal plans. To lower her carbon footprint, Chef Radley makes a point of sourcing locally produced organic fruits and vegetables as much as possible. For Chef Radley, veganism at its core is about kindness: “So, that isn't just about not eating meat, it's also about being kinder to the planet, being kinder to animals in every single way, being kinder to wildlife, and being kinder to our bodies as well.” Indeed, as our planet edges ever closer to a runaway climate change, kindness to all beings is the only real solution we have, according to our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai. “We will have time to implement other solutions, which is not as urgent as stopping the killing of animals for meat because it is meat that is threatening our planet’s existence. It is meat that causes the global warming.”

Healing from the Inside Out with Food - With Chef Day Radley (vegan), Part 1 of 2

Chef Radley has not only walked the vegan way for the last 25 years, but has also made it her life’s work, to rally the world towards a vegan era in which all beings can live in peace and harmony. Perhaps Chef Radley’s greatest contribution as a vegan advocate to date is the Vegan Chef Institute, London’s first vegan chef school, which she opened with co-founder and health coach Chantal Di Donato in November 2018. Over 100 vegan chefs have graduated from the institute in less than two and a half years. She is considered a pioneer of simple modern cooking that is tasty, fun, and creative. She has been featured on national TV shows, such as the award-winning Sky News UK and ITV’s “Living on the Veg.” She is the author of two cookbooks, “Love.Food: A 28 Day Plan to Let Go of Chaotic Eating & Fall Back in Love With Food,” and “Bo’s Book: Recipes from The Vegan Chef School and Tails from Miracle's Mission.” “When I went vegan, something lifted, and it was through my explorations into fresh, unprocessed, and animal-free food that I fell in love with a way of eating that nourishes us and allows us to flourish. I discovered that real food is a life force." "I’m here for them. I’m a protector. A protector of those who cannot protect themselves."To encourage as many people as possible to become vegan and stay that way, she has uploaded hundreds of cooking shows online showcasing free recipes that are quick and easy, yet satisfying for the palate. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Chef Radley conducted more than 150 free, live-streamed “cook-along” shows on Facebook (as of January 2021) to help people to make healthy dishes at home.

"Veganism - the Best Medicine for Good Health" with Dr. Jérôme Bernard-Pellet (vegan)

16:52

"Veganism - the Best Medicine for Good Health" with Dr. Jérôme Bernard-Pellet (vegan)

On today’s episode, we meet the highly respected medical doctor, scientist, nutritionist, biostatistician and author from France, Dr. Jérôme Bernard-Pellet. After observing that hospital wards were filled with patients suffering from diseases such as cancers, diabetes, and kidney failure, Dr. Bernard-Pellet decided to conduct intensive research into preventative medicine, with a focus on the relationship between nutrition and health. At first, he was skeptical about the benefits of the vegan lifestyle. After conducting extensive research, Jérôme became an enthusiastic advocate of the vegan diet. He now actively encourages his patients to adopt this lifestyle to improve their health. One question he is frequently asked is, “Should my newborn child be vegan?” “The advice for children is much the same as for adults. So, we encourage mothers to breastfeed their babies. It really is the best food for the baby. If you can't or don't want to breastfeed, well, there are infant formulas that have a soy milk or rice milk base. And therefore, it is quite possible to be a vegan from birth.”Dr. Bernard-Pellet works tirelessly to spread the vegan message to his colleagues, other medical doctors and the general public through his lectures, interviews, and books. In an interview with the magazine “Antidote,” he noted that, when it comes to prevention of disease, the vegan diet remains the best medicine. He confirms that a whole food, plant-based diet helps prevent many kinds of diseases, including Type 2 diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease and neurodegenerative conditions. Dr. Bernard-Pellet is delighted to report that veganism is growing rapidly in France. One indicator of this growth was the first VeggieWorld Fair held in Marseille in December 2017. We end our show today with a parting message from Dr. Jérôme Bernard-Pellet. “My wish for the future is that there is a compassion that is created between all beings, so that it becomes obvious that there is no need to eat animals. All will be much better, including humans and, of course, planet Earth.”

Tim Barford (vegan) -Trailblazer for UK's Vegan Festivals

On today’s program we meet Mr. Tim Barford, a dedicated, hard-working, enthusiastic special events organizer devoted to promoting the vegan lifestyle wherever and whenever he can. In 2003, Tim founded VegFest, one of the first vegan festivals in the UK. From humble beginnings, VegFest has since become the largest vegan event in the country. More recently, Tim organized the first Plant Powered Expo, held on February 1st and 2nd, 2020 at Olympia, London. “What’s important here is that Plant Powered Expo very much focuses on the benefits of plant-based living, very much solutions-based, and very much focusing on the health benefits, the food, the environmental impact of living on plant-based diets and following the plant-based lifestyle. Importantly however, it also includes an underpinning aspect of the vegan philosophy. So, the vegan philosophy is 'justice for animals.'” One of the major attractions of Plant Powered Expo was the food. Guests enjoyed free samples of delicious vegan meats, cheeses, pizzas, ice-cream, chocolate, and cakes. In addition to food, Plant Powered Expo encourages people to live greener, more sustainable lives. One aspect of this is environmentally friendly packaging."If you're a frustrated vegan that’s seeing so many people, your friends and family still eating animal products, be patient! Keep promoting that ethical position, but in a calm, friendly, supportive manner. Every time your friends and colleagues choose another plant-based option, celebrate that! ""From an animal justice perspective, it's a need-to, to go vegan. From a global warming perspective, it's a need-to, to adopt a plant-based lifestyle, whenever you can!" Our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai speaks frequently about the urgent need for the global switch to a vegan diet, as it would reverse climate change, protect the environment, and save the lives of billions of innocent animals. Furthermore, the vegan diet has great benefits for humans as well, both spiritually and physically.

John Oberg (vegan) – A Voice for the Voiceless, Part 2 of 2

John Oberg (vegan) – A Voice for the Voiceless, Part 2 of 2

Constantly analyzing your work and asking, is this as effective as I can be, given my current set of resources and all the variations, and all the variables at hand. And also, don’t feel like you have to fit some mold out there. And so, if you’re posting a lot of content that people really want to engage with, they are going to want to follow you.” A few years ago, Mr. Oberg decided to establish an account on Patreon, and he kindly shares with us how this has helped to achieve his goals in animal advocacy. “So, for me, I have about 200 patrons who believe that the work that I’m doing is important, and so they sign up and become patrons. And many of these patrons are just $5 a month, and it’s basically the price of a coffee once per month. And it creates a sustainable income for me, so that I can do this work, day in and day out, because if I didn’t have a way of supporting myself and supporting the work that I do, I wouldn’t be able to do this work.” “The way that we’re treating animals both literally treating them, but also looking at them as nothing more than commodities, is unsustainable and it’s unhealthy in every possible way. And we have pandemics now, and pandemics not only cause harm and suffering to people, but also the economies as well.” “The way that the world should change to balance crises and to deal with crises is to have more empathy. You choose not to support animal farming. You choose the plant-based options out there. You choose to go vegan, and that’s how you are going to change the world.” “I believe that doing so with a smile is going to get you further than screaming or yelling at people. So, for me, I really view social media as a massive way to impact people. Whatever the advocacy is, if it’s effective and if it speaks to you, then run with it.”

John Oberg (vegan) – A Voice for the Voiceless, Part 1 of 2

John Oberg (vegan) – A Voice for the Voiceless, Part 1 of 2

Let’s start by hearing how changing to a vegan diet altered John’s perspective on animal cruelty. “The decision to stop eating animals and to become vegan was the best decision I’ve ever made in my life. I did it because I didn’t want to contribute to animal cruelty anymore. I’ve definitely felt like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders, and it’s been a beautiful thing. I feel like I can now live in confidence knowing that my actions from day to day aren’t causing unnecessary animal suffering, because if I’m not willing to cause harm to an animal, why should I pay someone else to cause harm to an animal?” “Most people consider themselves animal lovers, and most people go through their day, day to day, eating animals. And they go through their day, day to day, not thinking about the impact that that has. But what you, and me, and many of the viewers here today understand, is that through our food choices alone, we impact dozens, dozens of animals every single year. Hundreds, or probably thousands, potentially even tens of thousands over the course of our lifetime.” Next, John shares with us his approach to using social media as a successful tool to create awareness for the plight of our animal friends. “I look at the treatment that farm animals face in today’s world as something that is legal, or that is just absolutely cruel and unbelievable, but it’s legal and standard practice. There’s a lot of reasons for that, most of them surround money, and so what farm animals experience in 2020 in today’s world, is absolutely awful. The plus side is, the vast majority of people don’t know, so that gives us an opportunity to raise awareness and to talk about what farm animals are experiencing.” “Social media really provides us this incredible opportunity, whether it’s us as animal advocates, or other people fighting for other causes, social media allows us this great opportunity to spread the word, to raise awareness, to advocate in a way that humans had never been able to advocate before. In the history of humankind, we’ve never been able to send messages in an instant, to any corner of the globe in an absolute instant, in massive numbers day in and day out.”

Tim Thorpe (vegan): Campaigning for A Vegan World, Part 2 of 2

Today, we’ll continue to learn how Tim promotes veganism through policies and public awareness on the connection between climate change and the livestock industry. “We can help traditional farmers out from animal farming into growing plants, and that’s a really important thing to do because of the impact of animal farming. It’s incredibly resource intensive to raise animals; it’s a very inefficient process. Most of the food given to the animals does not end up in the end product. It’s used by those animals in their metabolism. So, that’s the main reason it is inefficient, as well as the pollution it causes. But we can help farmers away from animal farming. One of the key things is advice, finding really good examples of other farmers who have tried new things, who have been real pioneers in this area, and making sure we amplify their voice, use their examples, and bring it to other farmers. That’s one thing we can do as the Vegan Society.”Through Greenworld.org.uk, Tim has strongly highlighted the substantial harm from meat on our health and the environment with this thought-provoking question: “Is animal agriculture guilty of ecocide?” Ecocide was defined by the late Polly Higgins QC, a barrister and life-long environmental campaigner, as: “damage to, destruction of or loss of ecosystems of a given territory, such that peaceful enjoyment by the inhabitants has been or will be severely diminished.” Michael Mansfield QC, a prominent barrister in England, called for new offence of “ecocide,” asserting that “Eating meat is a crime against humanity and should be BANNED.”Public awareness of the importance of a sustainable and healthy vegan diet is paramount in helping to mend the major problems we face. “There’s a number of ways we can influence media and the general public to help them understand why we need to be vegan. We submit articles regularly to all major publications around a range of subjects. Veganism encompasses lots of different elements from health to the environment, and primarily for many people, to the rights of animals, and compassion for animals, as well as compassion to other people. I think the world could change as veganism increases in a number of different ways. We could have a vegan world where food is very healthy.”

Tim Thorpe (vegan): Campaigning for A Vegan World, Part 1 of 2

Today, we are honored to share with you an interview with Mr. Tim Thorpe, a Campaigns and Policy Officer of The Vegan Society. The Vegan Society is a non-profit organization based in London, U.K and has been promoting the plant-based lifestyle since 1944 when one of its founders, Donald Watson, first introduced the word vegan to the world.With a background in environmental conservation, Mr. Thorpe assists the organization with research, policy work and campaigns to promote the benefits of veganism. He also leads the Grow Green Campaign, which is helping the current agricultural system to change to a plant-based operation. With the climate emergency, the Grow Green Campaign is unwavering in bringing awareness of the importance of rapid and strong reductions in emissions from animal livestock raising which severely causes environmental damage and climate change. The Grow Green campaign puts forward essential policy recommendations to transition to plant-based agriculture and other sustainable forms of land management. They covered areas such as providing subsidies to farmers that produce food intended for direct human consumption; allotting funds for research on protein crops and how to boost yields; implementing a farmed animal tax; encouraging the serving of plant proteins in public canteens; and consulting on policy with a wider range of stakeholders.Demand plays a key role in food production adjustments and policy alterations. The more people make the connection and switch to a vegan diet, the closer we get to reaching the tipping point where the governments and food producers take action. “I think people are getting increasingly interested in the importance of vegan diets. So, for some people, they might initially be interested in health and they might be looking for healthier foods and as they learn more, there’s opportunities there to teach them about sustainability as well. Or people might initially be interested in animal rights, the welfare, and compassion for animals. And then through those conversations, we can introduce the subject of sustainability as well. It’s about reaching people where they are and what they’re interested in to begin with, and making sure that you give them the information that’s relevant to them at that time.”

Dr. Laila Kassam (vegan): Creating Transformative Change

Dr. Laila Kassam (vegan): Creating Transformative Change

Today, we will meet a highly effective animal rights activist from the UK, named Dr. Laila Kassam. Laila, a Ph.D. in Development Economics, has been involved in social change for most of her career. She has worked in the international development sector since 2003, conducting research on poverty and food security for rural development projects in the Global South. She founded several vegan organizations with the goal of creating a sustainable, and just vegan world. “We need to have a food system which is sustainable and truly just for all. So, some of the things that I would like to see are a massive shift to a wholefood plant-based diet which is supported by a plant-based food system. But it is not enough to just switch to a plant-based food system, the crops that we grow need to be grown sustainably: so that means without tilling the soil, shifting to organic, and really thinking about sustainability in terms of planetary boundaries as well.” Dr. Kassam has founded several vegan organizations, as tools to create positive social change. “I have co-founded a few organizations, the ‘Veterinary Vegan Network,’ ‘Ethical Globe,’ and ‘Animal Think Tank.’ ‘Veterinary Vegan Network,’ I co-founded it with my partner who is a vegan vet. We really wanted to bring together vegans and the veterinary and associated animal care professions, including people who work in animal sanctuaries, to build a community and see what could happen.” Dr. Laila Kassam explains how a full-scale transformation involves participation from people and institutions from all levels of society. “It is clear that we need transformative change, not only in our food system but in our economic system which is driving our destructive food system, for example, you have people following a sort of personal transformation type approach, so for us that would be veganism and vegan outreach.” “So, for me, we need all of those things, and every single person, group, and organization can fit into that ecology. Everybody has a really important role to play. So, those are the types of things that I would like to see.”
