Campaigns to change the public’s eating habits yield results.Meat Free Monday, co-founded by Sir Paul McCartney in 2009, encourages meat-eaters to abstain from eating animal products one day a week.
A recent study out of Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) in the UK revealed that a third of the program’s participants become full-time vegetarians after five years.
The research also showed that 20% of individuals who joined similar diet-change movements adopted either a vegetarian or vegan diet within three to five years.
Dr. Richard de Visser, the lead author of the report, commented that the effectiveness of this kind of behavior upgrade relies on continually providing people with inspiring information and support.
Many thanks to Sir Paul McCartney, a Shining World Compassionate Artist Award laureate, Dr. de Visser’s team at BSMS and everyone who has reduced their meat consumption. Your actions contribute to a viable and fulfilling future on our blessed planet, in the grace of the Providence.
