After all the excesses of the festive season you have probably considered making some New Year’s resolutions. January is the perfect time to take steps towards a more compassionate, healthier and happier you. And there’s no better way of doing it than by embracing an animal-free diet, which is kinder to animals, your health and the environment.
We don’t need animal products to have a healthy diet, and with so many plant-based alternatives available in supermarkets and high street shops, it’s never been easier to go vegan. As well as saving animals’ lives you could be improving your health too, as a large number of studies show that a balanced and varied 100% plant-based diet is ideal for optimum health and lowers the risk of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. Order a copy of Animal Aid’s FREE guide to going vegan, which includes nutritional advice, recipes and shopping tips.
New Year is also a time when many people pledge to give more to worthy causes. If you are planning to donate extra money to medical charities, please make sure you only give to those that do not fund animal experiments. You can see which ones do and don’t on our medical charities list. You can also help to support Animal Aid’s work to end cruelty and animal suffering by making a donation here.
