Are You Ready for Good News Yet?

By Susan Hargreaves Author-Activist-Educator of  

Here we are in Florida, the current – at the time of writing – epicenter of the latest and most lethal to date super virus we have created, how can there be good news?

1. We can prevent future super viruses like COVID-19 simply by stopping eating animals.

More good news is going vegan today is so easy, healthy and good for the planet and it stops animal cruelty, too. A win-win-win-win!

Three out of four emerging super viruses are from people eating the bodies of overcrowded, traumatized animals. A wet market is a term for slaughter markets, yet, every slaughterhouse in every country is a wet market. SARS, MERS, swine flu, bird flu, mad cow disease, COVID-19 all stemmed from eating animals.

Today we just replace animal products with healthier choices like tasty crispy tenders, burgers, plant milks, butters, cheeses, all vegan and scrumptious, too. Of course, eating more delish vegetables and fruits is a big bonus.

2. Now is the perfect time to become a “plantpreneur.”

Barclays estimates the global meat alternative market will reach $140 billion over the next decade. Healthy Food Kitchen is a licensed professional kitchen in Boca Raton and is a great option to explore as a place to start your vegan food empire. Major restaurant chains have either just jumped aboard or continue to ride the vegan gravy train. The latest is KFC with their plant-based “chicken.”

3. Seabirds have begun to nest in a colony again at a Florida beach. The rooftops of large department stores are often the first home to many least tern hatchlings, though as you can guess, the cement rooftops are not the natural habitat of these threatened species. Hunting, development and the destruction of beach dune vegetation is responsible for an 88 percent decrease in their population in the last 40 years. In hatching season the beaches were less populated with humans, and an entire colony has moved back. This is the first year in approximately 20 years this number of sea hatchlings began their life on the sea shore. Local resident Ann Wiley has formed a volunteer protective force for the birds.
