How to Go Vegan Step-by-Step

[Environment/Health] Beans Not Beef for the Planet and People

 Beans, not beef! That's the message doctors with the Physicians Committee are sharing with policymakers in Washington, D.C., this Earth Day to raise awareness of the role of dietary contributors to climate change. 

Studies show that beans are beneficial for both the health of the planet and the health of people. The demonstration coincides with the White House’s climate summit with 40 world leaders. The Physicians Committee recently petitioned the White House to update its executive order titled “Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad” to recommend policy changes that could help alleviate the climate crisis and improve human health by cutting animal agriculture and promoting a plant-based diet.
