Edward McMillan-Scott, an MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber, is a Vice-President of the European Parliament. His portfolio includes Democracy and Human Rights. He sits as an independent and sumarises
In 2006, the UN Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) based in Rome issued its 400-page ground-breaking report, Livestock's Long Shadow. It gave a stark warning: "The environmental costs per unit of livestock production must be cut by one half, just to avoid the level of damage worsening beyond itspresent level."
The economist Lord Stern, author of a major report on the economic impact of climate change, recently observed, to some controversy: "Meat is a wasteful use of water and creates a lot of greenhouse gases. It puts enormous pressure on the world's resources. A vegetarian diet
The better news is that a modest change to our eating habits can have a major effect on the rate of climate change. Even better is that vegetarians have 28 per cent less heart disease, 39 per cent lower cancer mortality and suffer 50 per cent less diabetes. In my own case, not eating meat dropped my "bad" cholesterol by 27 per cent.
Andy Burnham, the Health Secretary, warned that global warming poses a “real and present danger” to the health of millions.
His report suggests that tens of thousands of lives a year could be saved in Britain alone by cutting the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere. The move would significantly cut emissions and save around 18,000 lives a year from heart disease alone, they estimate.
Alan Dangour, one of the authors of the report and a senior lecturer at the London School of School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said that a dramatic change could be made without having to give up meat.
“We are not saying become vegetarian, we are just saying cut back on the amount of meat and meat products you eat," he said.

Respected Croydon Businessman Nitin Mehta has spoken out about Sir Paul McCartney's mission to the EU Parliament today and explained the reasoning behind Sir Paul McCartney's plea that we reduce meat consumption for the sake of health and the Environment.
Croydon has been nominated the unhealthiest Borough in London and local support groups are struggling to find a way to stop rising the rising rates of childhood obesity and diabetes in Croydon.

Looks like vegan Leona Lewis has a fighting chance to make affordable Vegan Fashion work where other's have failed. Following in the footsteps of Vegan filmstar Natalie Portman, Leona Lewis has long muted the idea of affordable ethical fashion. An alternative to the celebrity only price tag of Stella McCartney's creations from her shop off Regent Street in London. After clearly impressing the fashion guru from the McCartney dynasty, Leona looks ever more likely to realise her dream of an ethical vegan fashion range available on the high street according to Vogue - and they should know potential when they see it.

Vegan Heroes Lush Cosmetics have coaxed the blood sports hunters out of the woods and revealed them to be the sick individuals they actually are.
It's the hunters who are the extremists, the violent minority, the social misfits.
The hunt sabs risk their, property, their safety and their social lives, discussing the latest recipes for vegan chocolate cake at 4.30 in the morning as they heroically set off to lay false sent trails to thwart the hunters quest for enjoyment in bloody entrails.
The selfish bullies who think it's fun to see a fox torn apart by a pack of hounds think nothing of writing obscenities on high street windows with a kebab and kicking over shop displays.
Like their supporters in the double house with duck pond Tory party they think they are above the law.
Whilst the blood sport enthusiasts and Country Side Alliance Lobbyists can abuse the law, some of my very peaceful hunt sab friends got followed by a helicopter and falsely arrested, fortunately they are not above the law.

Alicia Silverstone is messing with nature
Eating meat is natures way of natural selection - killing off the people too selfish and too stupid to see that the modern meat based diet is not only killing themselves it's killing the planet.
Nature has dished out heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis , osteoporosis, Altzhiemers, stroke and constipation to meat eaters for a reason.
Don't mess with nature's way Alicia, leave the meat eaters to their burgers!
Nature knows best - survival of the fittest - make way for the homo-superior

THE EARTH IS OUR FRIEND
(Garden of Creation) YASUS AFARI ©
The earth is the garden of creation
Purposefully clothed with lush, green vegetation.
Firm enough to prevent critical soil erosion,
All elements working in union,
For natural joy and satisfaction.
The earth is a friend, we are the friends of the earth
The cyclic function of the earth’s ecology is no mystery.
Like the organs of the human body,
Each working in perfect harmony,
In this our environmental community,
of which the guardians and keepers,
are the children of humanity.
The earth is a friend, we are the friends of the earth
The rivers, like blood streams flowing into the oceans
Returning secretly to the fleshy bowels of earth’s creation
Evaporating to the atmospheric breath of life
Sun, moon and stars
Solid, liquid and gas
Land, sea and air
Flesh, blood and spirit.
The earth is a friend, we are the friends of the earth
Like the lungs of man
The trees breathe to keep the earth alive
Yeah! The Sun, like a devoted Father
Working from sunrise until sunset
And the Moon, like a loving Mother
Working from dusk until dawn
Shining with the sweet embrace of her children, the stars
The earth is a friend, we are the friends of the earth
If we protect the earth,
Then, the earth will protect us
Clothe, feed and shelter us.
The earth is the garden of creation.
If we keep the earth alive
Then we will stay alive,
The earth will keep us alive.
The earth is our friend,
We are the friends of the earth

Kate Moss vegan boyfriend Jamie Hince furious over models rabbit fur throw - mirror.co.uk
Jamie's Drive Time
Sound's like Kate Moss is trying to ditch vegan boyfriend Jamie Hince by using fur to drive him out. Apparently 'Kate mate' hard core vegetarian Stella McCartney won't visit Kate Moss at Kate's home because of Kate's fur fetish for dead animal Skin.
Sado Masochistic Sex
The Fur is everywhere but so far vegan Jamie Hince has been able to tolerate it for the sake of regular sex with his top super model girlfriend.
However now it seems Kate Moss wants rid of her chain smoking, Rock 'n ' Rolling vegan boyfriend Jamie Hince and is provoking him by buying a rabbit skin throw for the couple's bed.
Vegan Jamie says the rabbit skin throw makes him want to throw - made from a whole warren full of rabbits stripped of their skin. Now the Rabbits have stopped hopping it's making Jamie Hopping mad and making him feel sick asa rabbit rather than eager to hop into bed with Kate.
Fur loving Kate may go like a rabbit between the fur lined sheets but the rabbit rabbit on the streets is that Kate's rabbit and fur obscession is one hop too far
It's finally dawned on Jamie that Kate Moss is not just a bunny boiler, but a bunny skinner, a bunny eater, a bunny killer, a bunny skin wearer.
Kate's home is becoming the Watership Down rabbit equivilent of a Bunny London Dungeon.

World Vegetarian And Vegan News: Meat Free Monday - Launch
Sir Paul McCartney, family and celebrity friends kicked off a global media blitz yesterday with his call to make Mondays meat free.
Over 300 stories about going vegetarian so far - it will be interesting to see how many cities follow Belgium city Ghent's example and give up meat for one day per week. One thing is sure, with Boris Johnson in control of London it's not happening any time soon in the UK capital city.

TV Review - The Goode Family - On ABC, a Clan So Virtuous Even Its Dog Is Vegan - NYTimes.com
The Goode family from ABC is a new cartoon sitcom about a recycling vegan family. It locks in a lot of the stereo typical cliches that vegans get bombarded with and is definitely vegans according to meat eaters but is hugely funny nonetheless.

Art for Smiths - For National Vegetarian Week (18-24 May) vegan artist and lecturer Pinky Binks created a tribute to the thousands of animals slaughtered in a now lonely and dilapidated slaughterhouse in Hamsterley.
The installation was also timed to mark Morrissey’s 50th birthday (Friday 22nd May) as he has been an ardent campaigner for animal rights throughout his life and is partly made up of pink gladioli. Morrissey has also been named the UK’s Favourite Vegetarian in a nationwide poll, beating Sir Paul McCartney for the very first time.

Paul McCartney Celebrity Family Heirloom Under Threat by Health Food Giants
In a National Vegetarian Week Battle of the Bangers it's now not enough that the McCartneys 2nd greatest legacy to the world, The Linda McCartney sausage is the healthiest veggie sausage (highest %protein and lowest %salt) and also the best value (99p in Iceland) it has to be the tastiest too.
New flexitarians, demi vegetarians, conveinegans, and conscious consumers demand the same choice, the same quality, the same value for money but more importantly the same enjoyment from their vegetarian foods as they expected when they ate meat.
Will the new redesigned healthier Linda McCartney sausage fulfil all those demands and stave off the might of Premier Brands industrialisation of vegetarian foods?
Lets see what the experts say at The National Vegetarian Week big breakfast event at tibits restaurant in London. tibits will also be showcasing a selection of top vegetarian products including a new Vegan Cookbook coming out in June

After delighting millions by going vegan on national TV and worldwide on her blog the Oprah media machine has leavered opened the trap door underneath her ethical fans feet by going all KFC on us.
There's nothing worse than a vegan's scorn, I mean it's not like she was ever one of us, highly unlikely she'd give up Dairy Ice cream for good - the vegan stuff is just never in the right place at the right time for her - and she did kind of hint that unless she had a vegan chef pandering to her every need she would struggle.
But this???? - KFC's the enemy - you put a vegan spotlight on yourself and then Dance with the devil then plagues of vegan locust be upon you foul torturer! manslaughter be on your hands

There will be no room for star trek pigs who would compete for space, air, water and food and cause waste and pollution problems due to their excrements and flatulence (and be a constant worry about H1N1 swine flu).
If Star Trek fantasies are ever to become a reality then the food dilemma has to be sorted first. It’s thought tomorrow’s Star Trek Space explorers will have to be self-sustaining farmers, growing enough plant foods such as fresh greens and vegetables to provide optimum nutrition for long journeys.
As the cost of sending equipment into space is estimated to be around $30,000 per pound, plants will have to also earn their keep by filtering and cleaning Star Trek air and water supplies.
Many experts suggest we should be looking more closely at an ethical Star Trek diet for planet earth as we approach environmental catastrophe due to our greed for animal food. Other experts have suggested it’s immoral for us to be feeding grain and water to pigs when there are so many people on the planet starving or dying from dehydration from lack of water.
The World Health Organisation and ex Beatle Sir Paul McCartney have urged us to just try vegetarianism even if it’s just once a week. McCartney has helped launch the concept of Meat Out Mondays all over the world as an ethical first step.
Despite the mountain of environmental evidence in favour of a plant based vegetarian Star Trek diet, the modern cornucopia of realistic alternative choice to meat and dairy products and the health risks it’s estimated over 50% of the population still eat meat more than once a week.
Health writer and nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston says “Dealing with the emotional attachment to eating meat means people find their habits difficult to change. They come up with all kinds of spurious claims such as “My body needs meat!” or “I only eat organic meat”. True, we’d be unlikely to be facing a pandemic of killer swine flu this Autumn if meat was farmed organically, however, whilst organic meat is undoubtedly less harmful to our bodies and the planet, it’s more vegetables we need in our diets not more animal products. Less than a quarter of the UK population even reach the NHS’s modest suggested targets of 5 fruit and vegetable portions per day”
Things have changed dramatically in recent years. McDonalds now sell salads whilst Burger King have allegedly paid Heather Mills $6 million (since denied by Sir Paul McCartney’s ex wife) to help launch a new swine flu free vegan veggie burger.
Swiss based Tibits, a vegetarian blue blood heritage restaurant chain in London, are leading the celebrations for National Vegetarian Week 2009 that starts on Monday 18th May, and are on a mission to encourage people to eat more fruit and veg.
Tibits will host; a photo call for vegetable body art, a launch of a new plant based cookery DVD, a vegan for dummies style recipe book launch, a fashion event to view a new range of designer shoes to rival Stella McCartney’s range and other vegetarian celebrity style products as well as their banquet choice of inspired dishes that make choosing your 5 a day an immune system boosting simple delight.
The finale of National Vegetarian Week is The Bristol Vegan Fayre on 30th and 31st May that last year attracted 12,000 people

Russell Brand has declared to US GQ magazine in an interview that he's getting bored with his life of sex and materialism and is worried about being more famous for being a tart than a comedian.
Apparently he's now on a mission to be celibate and vegan.
“ That’s all got to go" he said in the interview "until I’m in a position where I can say, ‘Look I’m celibate, I’m a vegan. All I do is meditate, come out and do stand-up and make films,’” he added.

Say what you will about Heather Mills-McCartney but she gets off her backside and does something. She also likes a challenge.
She went to the poorest part of New York blighted with some of the USA's highest rates of obesity, diabetes, asthma, and other health issues.
Not only did she donate a $1Million of vegan food she got on down and showed them how to cook low cost healthy food too.
