Will Hugh Jackman become vegan?

September 27, 2010

According to this article, Hugh Jackman is thinking about going on a vegan diet for preparing himself for new Wolverine sequel

 

“In the past he had eaten a lot of chicken for his role, but he took a lot of Vega, too,” says Brazier. “It turned out I was going to New York City so he said ‘Well, why don’t you just come over?’ so I went over to his place and we had a great chat and he told me how he was trying out veganism for environmental and health reasons and to set a good example for his kids. It’s not just for his own career anymore, which he wrote in the foreword. He was listing the reasons why he was interested in ‘Thrive,’ and he was concerned for the environment. That’s definitely something that he was aware of, and wanted to help instead of hurt.

 

I trully believe that once he starts vegan diet, he’ll never go back.

 

Go Hugh!

Bill Clinton gone vegan

September 24, 2010

…almost. Occasionally he eats fish but otherwise follows a vegan diet.

 

He finally came to his senses. After Mike Tyson.

 

Anyways, nice to hear that.

 

 

“I’m trying to be one of those experimenters,” said Clinton. “Since 1986, several hundred people who have tried essentially a plant-based diet, not ingesting any cholesterol from any source, has seen their bodies start to heal themselves — break up the arterial blockage, break up the calcium deposits around the heart. 82 percent of the people who have done this have had this result, so I want to see if I can be one of them.”

Clinton decided to adopt the diet in the early part of May 2010. While he does occasionally eat fish, the former president otherwise follows a strict vegan diet.

Growing number of fat people in US

September 24, 2010

Soon there will be more than 75% people overweight.

 

This are some predictions from a new study.

 

 

In 10 years, a full 75 percent of Americans will be overweight, making it “the fattest country in the OECD,” the report said.

 

 

 

The lifespan of an obese person is up to 8-10 years shorter than that of a normal-weight person, the OECD said, the same loss of lifespan incurred by smoking.

Anti McDonalds Ad

September 16, 2010

Totally agree with the campaign

 

PCRM’s provocative new fast-food commercial draws attention to the link between heart disease deaths and fast food. Studies show that people who consume fast food are at a higher risk for obesity, a factor contributing to heart disease. High-fat, high-sodium offerings at fast-food restaurants include products such as KFC’s Double Down Combo Meal, which has 45 grams of fat and 2,120 milligrams of sodium, and McDonald’s Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese Extra Value Meal, which has 61 grams of fat and 1,650 milligrams of sodium.
