1. Dairy and Prostate Cancer Link: Two recent studies published in the American Journal of Epidemiology showed a positive correlation between low-fat and nonfat milk consumption and the risk of prostate cancer.

One study comprising 82,483 men in the Multiethnic Cohort Study, 4,404 of whom developed prostate cancer over a mean follow-up of eight years consuming 1 cup or more per day of low-fat or nonfat milk showed a positive association for developing prostate cancer, while whole milk consumption showed a decreased risk for total prostate cancer.

The second study comprised 293,888 participants of the National Institutes of Health (NIH)-AARP Diet and Health Study, 10,180 of whom were total prostate cancer cases. In this case, two or more servings of skim milk per day showed an increased risk of advanced prostate cancer.

2. “He who takes medicine and neglects to diet wastes the skill of his doctors.” ~ Chinese Proverb

3. Meat Consumption Linked to Breast Cancer: A recent Diet, Cancer and Health study, looked into the role of diet and cancer among 24,697 postmenopausal Danish women. The relationship between meat consumption and risk of breast cancer was evaluated in 378 women who developed breast cancer and matched them to controls who did not develop breast cancer. A higher intake of meat (red meat, poultry, fish, and processed meat) was associated with a significantly higher breast cancer incidence rate.

4. (RSV) 1 Corinthians 13:6-7

"it [love] does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

Christians are called to reflect God's love onto all Creation. While it's not possible in a fallen, imperfect world to always love, at all times, we are nonetheless called to do it to the best of our abilities through the grace of God.

5. NFL Vegan Athlete: All-star National Football League player, Tony Gonzalez, thrives of a vegan diet and excels in one of the most physically demanding sports. As he shares his journey to become vegan, Tony Gonzales was worried that the typical football player diet, laden with animal products, was going to make him sick. So he asked himself, "Am I going to be unhealthy and play football? Or be healthy and get out of the league?"

Fortunately, he did not have to leave the league or risk his health eating animal products; instead, he learned how a well-balanced vegan diet can boost his performance and keep him healthy.
