Going Vegan Is One Of The Most Patriotic Things You Can Do


Mr. President, like
you, I love my country. I’m a patriot, too. And I would like to make you an offer that will help you personally,
all American people, our land, our economy, and
especially our veterans. We have $1 million to
donate to our veterans in exchange for you, Mr.
President, going vegan for January. You see, we want to Make
America Healthy Again. Our own health, the
health of the workforce, and the economy, but also
the health of other animals, forests, soil, rivers, and oceans. Mr. President, by going
vegan for just one month, you can really boost your own health. We know that processed meats cause cancer. Animal products contain
high levels of saturated fat that can raise cholesterol and increase the risk of
heart disease and obesity which can lead to diabetes and stroke. Vegans don’t eat this stuff, so it’s no surprise that they live longer. An unhealthy nation is
bad news for our economy. Cardiovascular disease and strokes cost us more than $330 billion each year and when you factor in
diabetes, those costs double. What a waste. Meanwhile the obesity epidemic continues with rates now exceeding
35% in seven states. Obesity is a serious problem because it is associated
with poorer mental health, reduced quality of life, and the leading causes of
death in the United States. There is a simple solution. A plant-based diet can be even better than a low-fat standard
diet in managing body weight and vegans also suffer less
from our biggest killers, including heart disease,
stroke, and diabetes. And what about farmed animals? Because of the unsanitary and stressful factory farm conditions, they are given vast amounts of antibiotics just to keep them alive, but the more antibiotics we use, the more we risk our own health. Already two million Americans suffer from antibiotic-resistant
infections each year and at least 23,000 die. Plus those billions of farm animals produce a lot of waste. It gets into our rivers and oceans. It pollutes them. It kills wildlife and it makes ocean dead zones. It doesn’t have to be this way. You can improve your health and we can improve our nation’s health. We could grow our economy and protect our country’s soil and water if we just made one simple
switch to eating plants. Mr. President, we urge you to support
the veterans’ sacrifice and do something amazing, something that could be
life-changing for you and our fellow Americans. Go vegan for January and we will be proud to donate $1 million to veterans’ charities. Lead the way and together we
can Make America Healthy Again.
