Extra Pounds = Extra Risk

Posted on by Ashley Fruno

Think those extra pounds are just a bit more to love? Well, a recent headline suggests the all-too-painful truth that adults who are overweight are, at any given point in time, more likely to die than their friends who are at a normal weight. Being overweight can lead to an increased risk of developing some nasty diseases—think diabetes, heart disease, or cancer!

What’s the problem here? Well, many of us don’t realize that killing animals is slowly helping to kill us too!

Fortunately, there’s no need to despair. Everyone can slim down and reduce their risk of dying early just by eating a healthy vegan diet. So if you’re thinking about sticking around for a while, toss out the animal-derived foods and be sure to take our Pledge to Be Veg today!
