(US/ca) CSUN students embrace a vegetarian lifestyle and go meatless
- [Daily Sundial]
Heather Swann first decided to become a vegetarian after seeing what
she called a “horror film” of an animal slaughterhouse. In the
beginning of her quest to go meatless she actually had a dream of an
emaciated cow with doleful eyes staring back at her asking, “Why?”
Swann, 20, junior and microbiology major, has been going meatless for
three years now and can finally be in good company with the rest of
Los Angeles. Well, at least on Mondays anyway.
Last February the Los Angeles City Council became a supporter of the
international campaign, “Meatless Monday.” According to a webpage on
the campaign’s website, the campaign intends to reduce the consumption
of meat for health and environmental reasons. It started in 2003 with
the help of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and
has spread to 23 countries.
