Ellen DeGeneres launches vegan website

Ellen DeGeneres has launched a vegan website called “Going Vegan with Ellen.” Vegans don’t eat meat or any animal by-products, such as eggs or milk, and they don’t use products from animals, such as leather, fur, wool or down or any cosmetics tested on animals. The site is very user-friendly and explains in plain English the philosophy behind being a vegan. It gives several reasons why people might want to consider a vegan lifestyle, including health. A section on the site called Do it for yourself under the heading Why Go Vegan? reads: “Scientific studies supported by the American Dietetic Association have confirmed that vegan and vegetarian diets are associated with lower cholesterol, lower risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure, lower risk of hypertension and Type 2 diabetes, lower body fat, and lower overall cancer rates. In fact, studies have shown that a vegan diet can actually reverse diabetes, heart disease and even cancer….The health benefits of a vegetarian and vegan lifestyle are vast. The American Dietetic Association (or ADA) released a report which stated that vegetarians and vegans “meet and exceed requirements” for protein consumption. In fact, vegetarians and vegans usually have better protein consumption than people who eat meat, dairy and eggs.” The site also explains why animal farming is the number one cause of climate change in the world and how animals in the production of meat are treated.
