Dietary counseling of patients with CKD must include information on not only the amount of phosphate but also the source of protein from which the phosphate derives.
Dangers of excess protein include hyperaminoacidemia, hyperaccmoneimia, hyperinsulinemia, nausea and diarrhoea.
Those countries that use the most cow's milk and its products also have the highest fracture rates and the worst bone health.
We do want people to work in more fruits and vegetables into their diets - not only because of the impact it could have on bone health, but also the impact it can have on lowering the risk of heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses.
It is the position of the American Dietetic Association and Dietitians of Canada that appropriately planned vegetarian diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases... Vegetarian diets offer a number of advantages, including lower levels of saturated fat, cholesterol, and animal protein and higher levels of carbohydrates, fiber, magnesium, boron, folate, antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, carotenoids, and phytochemicals.
I've been a vegetarian for years and years. I'm not judgmental about others who aren't, I just feel I cannot eat or wear living creatures.
Anyone who has ever heard the scream of an animal being killed could never again eat its flesh
Tremendous opportunity to effectively mitigate climate change in the near term lies in the dairy sector, particularly in India which has the largest combined population of cattle and buffalo in the world with nearly 40 million milk-producing buffalo and cattle.
Action to replace livestock products not only can achieve quick reductions in atmospheric GHGs, but can also reverse the ongoing world food and water crises.
Seems like it is (innovative foods) on the cusp of viability and, if it succeeds ... can be really transformative for the world.
For anyone who craves the flavor and feel of meat, this might be the first legitimate substitute.
PayPal co-founder invests in Modern Meadow, startup looking to produce 3D bioprinted cuts of meat for Human consumption.
I have been a vegetarian for a few years. Fred Dryer of the Rams has been one for ten years. It shows you don’t need meat to play football.
Billie Jean King, one of the greatest tennis stars of all time with over 39 single & doubles grand slam titles, was a vegetarian.
I've found that a person does not need protein from meat to be a successful athlete. In fact, my best year of track competition was the first year I ate a vegan diet.
The first (and only one of 2) person to have won the Ironman triathlon championship (considered to be one of the most strenuous feats in the world) six times is a vegan.
They think that to have big muscles you have to eat meat - it's a persistent and recurring myth. But take it from me, there's nothing magic about eating meat that's going to make you a champion bodybuilder. Anything you can find in a piece of meat, you can find in other foods as well.
The human body has no more need for cows' milk than it does for dogs' milk, horses' milk, or giraffes' milk.
The Gods created certain kinds of beings to replenish our bodies; they are the trees and the plants and the seeds.
Vegetarianism is a lifestyle that demands less from our planet.
Many things made me become a vegetarian, among them, the higher food yield as a solution to world hunger.
The sixteen hundred dairies in California’s Central Valley alone produce more waste than a city of twenty-one million people-that’s more than the populations of London, New York, and Chicago combined.
As long as there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields.
You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I'll buy you a new car.
The time will come when men such as I will look on the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men.
Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.
I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be measured by the way in which its animals are treated
All beings tremble before violence. All fear death, all love life. See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?
As long as Man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lowering living beings he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seeds of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love
If any kid ever realized what was involved in factory farming they would never touch meat again. I was so moved by the intelligence, sense of fun, and personalities of the animals I worked with on Babe that by the end of the film I was a vegetarian.
Every time we sit down to eat, we make a choice: Please choose vegetarianism. Do it for animals. Do it for the environment and do it for your health.
I love chicks... Pigs, cows, fish, and all the other animals too. That's why I turned vegetarian.
Everyone who goes vegetarian is 'hot', since they each make the world a better place every day.
The question is not, 'Can they reason?' nor, 'Can they talk?' but rather, 'Can they suffer?
There is no fundamental difference between man and animals in their ability to feel pleasure and pain, happiness, and misery.
Could you look an animal in the eyes and say to it, 'My appetite is more important than your suffering'
Recognize meat for what it really is: the antibiotic- and pesticide-laden corpse of a tortured animal.
The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that's the essence of inhumanity.
As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony between people. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together.
Of all the creatures, man is the most detestable. Of the entire brood, he's the one that possesses malice. He is the only creature that inflicts pain for sport, knowing it to be pain. The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to the other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creature that cannot.
It is increasingly obvious that environmentally sustainable solutions to world hunger can only emerge as people eat more plant foods and fewer animal products. To me it is deeply moving that the same food choices that give us the best chance to eliminate world hunger are also those that take the least toll on the environment, contribute the most to our long-term health, are the safest, and are also, far and away, the most compassionate towards our fellow creatures
Those who, by their purchases, require animals to be killed have no right to be shielded from the slaughterhouse or any other aspect of the production of the meat they buy. If it is distasteful for humans to think about, what can it be like for the animals to experience it
Life is life–whether in a cat, or dog or man. There is no difference there between a cat or a man. The idea of difference is a human conception for man’s own advantage.
I am a battery hen. I live in a cage so small I cannot stretch my wings. I am forced to stand night and day on a sloping wire mesh floor that painfully cuts into my feet. The cage walls tear my feathers, forming blood blisters that never heal.
I was almost knocked to the ground by the overpowering smell of feces and ammonia. My eyes burned and so did my lungs, and I could neither see nor breathe.
Just how destructive does a culinary preference have to be before we decide to eat something else? If contributing to the suffering of billions of animals that live miserable lives and (quite often) die in horrific ways isn't motivating, what would be? If being the number one contributor to the most serious threat facing the planet (global warming) isn't enough, what is? And if you are tempted to put off these questions of conscience, to say not now, then when?
To eat an animal meant that someone had to be killed, but to eat the by products of an animal required that someone had to live a long hard life as a slave. The mothers that produce milk and eggs for us have drawn out lives filled with entrapment, mutilation and rape.
The evening I was there, the farm was shipping three baby calves in a truck to a veal factory. The mother cows were crying when their babies were separated from them. I cannot forget the scene and can still hear the cries of the mother cows.
In this place, death seems like the only relief from suffering.
