It’s Paul Shapiro’s Animal News You Can Use! Yay, Paul! Yay, animals!
Do you like the state farm animal protection laws we’ve passed in recent years? If so, it’s time to take action now to get Iowa Rep. Steve King’s terrible provision out of the farm bill—a provision that threatens to wipe out animal welfare laws. Thank you for calling your Senators and Representative!
Speaking of Congress, did you hear that an animal ag industry group calling itself the “Farm Animal Welfare Coalition” was lobbying against the House of Representatives’ promotion of Meatless Monday? Well, that same group is actually now asking for “more vegan dining options in congressional cafeterias.” What a strange world…
And speaking of more vegan options, the American Institute for Cancer Research—famous for sifting through a half-million studies and compiling the most comprehensive report on diet and cancer in history—recently concluded that ”when it comes to American health, the research shows one thing very clearly: We all need to eat more plants and less meat.”
Have a great weekend, friends!
