      Vegetarian Advocate Speaks at Lawrence University

      APPLETON, WIS. - Pamela Rice, founder and president of the New York
      City-based VivaVegie Society, discusses reasons for adopting a
      meatless diet in an address at Lawrence University.

      Rice presents "101 Reasons I'm a Vegetarian" Saturday, May 13 at 4
      p.m. in Science Hall, Room 202. The event is free and open to the
      public.

      The address is based on Rice's 2005 book of the same name, in which
      she details arguments against eating meat from a variety of human
      health, animal welfare, economic and environmental perspectives. The
      topics she covers range from animal conditions on factory farms to
      high incidences of colon cancer and other diseases.

      Rice's book is an expanded version of a self-published pamphlet she
      began producing and distributing on New York City streets in 1991.
      The pamphlet has been updated six times since its first printing,
      with estimates of nearly 200,000 copies in circulation. In addition
      to directing the VivaVegie Society, Rice is the editor of the
      organization's newsletter, The VivaVine, and oversees the Vegetarian
      Center, a first-of its-kind clearinghouse for information on the
      vegetarian lifestyle.

      Rice's appearance is sponsored by the LU Vegetarians and Vegans, a
      student organization that promotes campus awareness and understanding
      of the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle for moral, environmental, ethical
      and health reasons.
