It's still the first week of the new year and already we have another positive vegan diet article in the New York Times, this time about vegan bodybuilders. The piece, by Mary Pilon, in the January 5 Sports Thursday section (p B10) is titled, "Sculptured by Weights and a Strict Vegan Diet."
Check it out on line at http://tinyurl.com/7kporxh and share it with your friends. And please dash off a quick supportive letter to the editor sharing your experiences with plant-based diets. The New York Times takes letters at firstname.lastname@example.org
Always include your full name, address, and daytime phone number when sending a letter to the editor. Remember that shorter letters are more likely to be published.
I thank activist Teresa D'Amico for making sure we saw this article.
Yours and the animals',
