    cramped living conditions and endemic diseases They are administered powerful cocktails of steroids and antibiotics engineered to accelerate growth to shorten their lives to hasten their harvest While the antibiotics suppress disease amongst the animals their use leads to the emergence of newer and more powerful strains of antibiotic resistant bacteria which are more than ever able to transcend the animal human borders Feeds fortified by Cordyceps and cultured lactobacillus underscore the inefficiencies of meat sources of food A lifetime of fortified fowl feed being anywhere from 4 to 9 weeks translates to only a few days worth of human meals without any assurance that such fowl feed fortification passes on greater nutrition down the food chain If such nutrients can withstand the rigours of slaughter and cooking just imagine the avian virus and other contaminants that must be surviving the transition equally well Expending land water nutrients and energy for lighting and music on animals means less of such limited resources are available for man s own benefit Why not deploy these directly for mankind instead to optimise them while reducing methane carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions and waste by products which poison water supplies and necessitate expensive treatment plants Doing good to animals is great Isn t it better that we first did them no harm 2 Here s the unpublished letter I refer to Fed pricey herb to strains of Mozart ST Sep 9 Expensive food and nice music do not compensate chickens for a completely unnatural life in what effectively is a prison followed by execution despite no crime being committed We are treating chickens as if they were mere objects when they are intelligent feeling fellow beings as revealed by researchers who have studied them Imagine please how we would feel if more intelligent beings from another planet took a liking to human flesh and treated us the way we treat chickens Would healthy food and Mozart make it okay 3 Our friends at ACRES www acres org sg also published a very nice letter on the topic http www straitstimes com ST 2BForum Online 2BStory STIStory 428033 html Top Vegetarians Please Read This Especially if you re a vegan a vegetarian who takes no eggs or diary or any foods of animal origin you should consider supplementing your diet to make sure you get enough Vitamin B12 You can read about B12 in detail at http www veganhealth org b12 or http www vegansociety com food nutrition b12 or http web mit edu newsoffice 2007 b12 html Vitamin B12 protects the nervous system In cases of severe deficiency serious nerve related problems can results These problems may occur without being immediately symptomatic The current best available evidence suggests that plant sources of B12 may not be well absorbed by the body Fortunately B12 can be easily manufactured via bacterial fermentation and is available in foods fortified with Vitamin B12 read the label or in B12 supplements that can be found in vegetarian

Multi Purpose Room B1 near lending library capacity 70pax Top Update on Meatless Thursdays in Belgium Earlier this year the city government of Ghent Belgium declared Thursdays to be Meatless Days We asked Tobias Leenaert of the Belgian organisation EVA Ethical Vegetarian Alternative for more on what s happening there 1 Please tell us the history of how Meatless Thursday came to be What was your society s role in making this happen EVA started its Thursday Veggie Day campaign at the end of 2007 Last year we managed to convince IPCC Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change chairperson Dr Rajendra K Pachauri to come to Ghent and give a talk about meat and global warming http www evana org index php id 36895 lang en Tom Balthazar the Ghent councilman responsible for the environment was there and after that he became more and more convinced of the importance of meat reduction We made contact with two of his staff who were also enthusiastic and we suggested that they ask Balthazar if he would be prepared to officially proclaim Thursdays to be veggie days in Ghent Apparently he didn t need much convincing and he managed to get his colleagues on the executive council of the city to go along with him 2 How does the city government support the Meatless Thursdays Is it just lip service The city supports the campaign in several ways we receive financial support several city employees have already spent many days on the campaign we have developed and distributed campaign materials together we organized the launch event together and from October 2009 onwards city funded schools will have vegetarian dishes by default on Thursday The latter was decided by the councilman for the environment So no it s definitely not just lip service 3 What is the public reaction What percentage of people would you estimate are reducing their meat consumption We haven t done any research yet we plan to that in October But so far we have heard many many positive comments and many people tell us they are participating 4 Are other Belgian cities or towns thinking of following Ghent s example The town of Hasselt has already declared that it will start in October There have also been some other towns expressing an interest and we will start working on the bigger cities like Antwerp and Brussels Internationally Sao Paulo Brazil is already convinced and they re working on it in France UK Austria Israel etc 5 Has your organisation grown as a result of the success of Veggie Day We have certainly received a lot of attention and inquiries and we have attracted new advertisers and interested potential partners We recently also received a national sustainability award I can feel that the whole campaign has brought us a lot of recognition and that the road is wide open for further growth We have also received a lot of international inquiries from sister organisations all over and it s particularly rewarding to see that our campaign has inspired other people 6 What is being planned to broaden and deepen Veggie Day We are now trying to organize something on the European level and are checking if we can collaborate with the Meatless Monday campaign by Paul McCartney We are also getting the support again of Dr Pachauri who will urge other cities to follow Ghent s example http www vegetarisme be index php option com content view article id 792 Furthermore we want to make sure Ghent succeeds as a pilot city and serves as an example for other cities to follow 7 Any advice for organisations hoping to do something similar My main advice would be to take this from the environmental and health angle not from an animal rights angle The meat reduction angle is also much more successful than the all or nothing vegetarian angle Obviously it s good to present the benefits for the city or the city official involved Make them concrete CO2 saved health benefits In general I think it is fruitful to work at a city level rather than a national level Some material
