      Launch of Lantern Books Reading Club

      Jean Thaler, who once ran Big Apple Vegetarians for six years, is
      starting a book club which will feature titles from the Lantern Books
      collection, and occasional appearances by the authors. The group will
      meet quarterly at the Lantern Books office in Union Square, New York
      City.

      "My purpose in starting this reading club is to have a forum for
      informed, participatory discussion on animal rights, vegetarianism,
      and environmentalism. I like to support this unique publisher of
      titles on these topics, as well as the authors," Jean asserts.

      Active participation by the readers will be expected. The moderator
      will alternate among Jean, the readers, and the editors. Sessions
      will be free of charge, and water and munchies will be provided.

      Date of first session, to be announced. Contact Jean at: jeanthaler@...

      CORRESPONDENCE:::::

      VivaVegie recently received the following letter:

      Hello there, I have been a vegetarian for many years but never made
      the cross over to becoming a vegan. After reading the information
      concerning the Animal Welfare Act excluding farm animals I became
      quite concerned...Are animals used for their byproducts just as
      mistreated? Thanks so much, Anna

      VivaVegie answered:


      Not in all cases, of course, Anna...

      But, yes, cows often do not live long happy lives.

      Most hens live terrible abysmal lives.

      Animals raised for leather may be treated better to preserve their
      hides. Then again, leather is not a byproduct in many cases.

      All types of animal agriculture are plagued with sporadic mortalies.

      The chicken industry assumes 10 percent mortality from disease and
      spontaneous death due to high-growth genetics. The carcasses are
      rendered into every kind of consumer product, from gelatin, to
      pharmaceuticals, to household cleaners, to glues, to solvents, to
      asphalt.... the list goes on and on.

      Assume a lot of suffering all along the way.

      Soybeans are replacing the cow in many cases; this is a good trend.
      However, with so much slaughterhouse waste, industry tends to go
      where plenty makes cheap.

      If you plan to adopt the vegan lifestyle, be sure to take 2000
      micrograms of vitamin B12 every week and 2 tablespoons of ground flax
      seed every day.

      Other than that, eat at least 2-1/2 cups of fresh fruits and veg.
      every day - better yet, make that 4-1/2 cups a day. Eat whole grains
      primarily (exclusively, even better). Eat beans for other important
      nutrients...
