New MFA Brochure Gives Consumers 25 Reasons to Try Vegetarian

25ReasonsCover.jpgFrom protecting their own personal health, the health of the planet, or helping to reduce the needless suffering of billions of farmed animals each year, there are countless reasons why more and more people are trying vegetarian versions of their favorite foods.

Now, MFA has distilled 25 of some of the most compelling reasons to adopt a healthy and humane plant-based diet into a colorful new 16-page brochure that is sure to make people think differently about their food choices.

Here is a small sample of what's inside:

Reason #4: We Don't Have to Kill to Be Healthy According to the American Dietetic Association, "Well-planned vegan and other types of vegetarian diets are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle including during pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence." Not only are vegetarian diets appropriate for people of all ages, but our bodies can thrive on them.

Reason #10: To Prevent Deforestation and Species Extinction The United Nations reports that "the livestock sector may well be the leading player in the reduction of biodiversity, since it is the major driver of deforestation, as well as one of the leading drivers of land degradation, pollution, climate change, overfishing, sedimentation of coastal areas and facilitation of invasions by alien species."

Reason #15: Caring for Some Animals (Like Dogs and Cats) and Eating Others (Like Pigs and Chickens) Is Morally Inconsistent Chickens, turkeys, pigs and cows possess intelligence, individual personalities, and emotional lives just like dogs and cats do. All animals value their lives and wish not to suffer. If you wouldn't eat your dog or cat, why eat any other animal when it's completely unnecessary?

Chock-full of easy-to-digest information, creative meal ideas and resources and tips for making the switch to a compassionate vegetarian lifestyle, the thought-provoking 25 Reasons brochure is a powerful new tool for animal advocates. The brochures are small, compact and perfect for leafleting or for just keeping in your purse or backpack for the next time someone asks you why you are vegetarian.

Remember, everyone who adopts a vegetarian lifestyle spares more than 50 animals per year a lifetime of misery and suffering. Order your 25 Reasons brochures and start saving lives today.
