VSS eNewsletter 26 Sep 2006
September’s VSS Wellness Seminar features a video that captured a lot of attention when it was shown in July at the Singapore Meatout exhibition at the National Library. The video, entitled Eating, focuses on the health dangers of eating meat and the benefits of going veg. Other good reasons to give up meat are also covered.
Following the screening of the 1.5hr video, a wholesome organic veg afternoon tea will be served. Plus, to help participants practice a healthy diet, there will be a short food demo after the tea break during which two simple, nutritious recipes will be shared.

Earlier this month, Martina Navratilova (veg since 1993) - http://www.martinafanpage.net/eng/newsother.php - concluded her tennis career by capturing an incredible 59th Grand Slam title at the unheard-of age of 49.
On 16 Aug, My Paper ran an article about Mdm Huang Yanni, who has had two children on an organic, veg diet. Here, in italics, are a couple of excerpts (translated from Chinese by a kind reader) from the article.
During these five years, she consumed a variety of organic fruits and vegetables. When she dined out on occasion and was left with little choice, she would also choose only vegetarian dishes. Although aware that free-range or organically-fed meat was available, her family chose to go organic without harming animals”
During both her pregnancies, her gynaecologist advised her to abandon her organic vegetarian diet in order to absorb nutrition from meats as well. However, she was adamant on sticking to the vegetarian diet, insistent on taking in nutrition from non-animal sources.
On 15 Oct, 9am-5pm, Yanni will be taking part in a seminar, entitled “Beautiful Mommy, Healthy Baby”, at World Business Group (the people who bring us Indonine veg restaurants) HQ #25-03, Suntec Tower 2, Associates Floor. Price: $68, inclusive of 1 Lunch and Tea Break, $50 redeemable for a minimum purchase of $200 worth of HUNZA products in a single receipt. Spouses are half price for each full-price customer.
