    Dog owners could face jail, $27,000 fines for putting pets on vegetarian diet

    Dog owners face jail and $27,000 fines for putting pets on veggie diet. Feeding your pooch plant-based meals could come back to bite Brits who want to switch up their animals traditional diet. But adapting your dogs dinner to a vegetarian diet could land you in big trouble with the law. Canines must be fed a “suitable diet”, according to the Animal Welfare Act 2006 – and you could be prosecuted if it is deemed you are not doing so. The Blue Cross explains that UK dog owners have a legal duty to provide for their welfare needs. All domestic

    In India, 81% limit meat in diet and 39% say they are vegetarian

(Manjunath Kiran/AFP via Getty Images) All of India’s most widely practiced religions have dietary laws and traditions. For example, Hindu texts often praise vegetarianism, and Hindus may also avoid eating beef because cows are traditionally viewed as sacred. Muslim teachings, meanwhile, prohibit pork. The vast majority of Indian adults (81%) follow some restrictions on meat in their diet, including refraining from eating certain meats, not eating meat on certain days, or both. However, most Indians do not abstain from meat altogether – only 39% of

    People following plant-based diet ‘much less likely to get severe Covid-19’, study suggests

    People who enjoy a plant-based diet like vegetarians and vegans or take fish as their only source of meat are considerably less likely to contract severe Covid-19, a new study has found. According to the findings published in The BMJ Nutrition, Prevention and Health, which examined data from healthcare workers across six countries including the UK, people who follow a plant-based diet are 73 per cent less likely to be hit by coronavirus while self-declared pescatarians were 59 per cent less likely to become ill than those who eat red and white meat. Low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets appeared to be

    Nine out of 10 people getting SNAP benefits struggle to access a healthy diet, new study shows

    Almost 90 percent of people receiving SNAP — the federal food assistance program formerly known as food stamps — are struggling to access healthy food, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) study released Wednesday. The nearly 42 million Americans receiving SNAP benefits are one of the most food insecure populations in the country, and more than half responding to a survey said they simply can’t afford the kind of nutritious food that makes up a healthy diet, the study revealed. For others surveyed, the top barriers to access included a lack of transportation to a grocery store

    ‘A Vegetarian WW Diet And Peloton Rides Helped Me Lose 127 Pounds’

    My name is Pamela Schlosser (@adventureswithpamcakes), and I’m 37 years old. I’m from Grand Rapids, Michigan, and I’m a baker and stay-at-home mom. By rejoining Weight Watchers, improving my relationship with food, eating a vegetarian diet, and riding my Peloton five days a week, I lost 127 pounds in less than two years. I’ve always struggled with my weight. While I’ve tried to lose weight in the past, I’ve always been unsuccessful. I would join Weight Watchers (now called WW) and lose 20 pounds, then I’d quit. I would gain the weight back, and more. My famous line

    Does a plant-based diet really help beat COVID-19?

    Since the beginning of the pandemic, it’s been suggested that certain foods or diets may offer protection against COVID-19. But are these sorts of claims reliable? A recent study published in BMJ Nutrition, Prevention and Health sought to test this hypothesis. It found that health professionals who reported following diets that are vegetarian, vegan or pescatarian (those that exclude meat but include fish) had a lower risk of developing moderate-to-severe COVID-19. Additionally, the study found that those who said they eat a low-carbohydrate or high-protein diet seemed to have an increased risk of contracting moderate-to-severe COVID-19. This may make it
