Myth Busting

One of the free brochures that VSS distributes is
"Meat Less in Singapore". Along with recipes, this brochure also contains information to refute myths about vegetarian diets. Recently, some of this material was reprinted, with permission, on a website called Ageless Online: http://www.agelessonline.net/health/
going-meat-less
Here's an excerpt.
 

I Need Meat To Get Enough Iron
Answer: Iron is an essential nutrient that enables our blood to perform its transport functions. Iron also maintains our immune system. Fortunately, many plant-based foods are rich in iron including chickpeas, raisins, spinach, molasses, brown sugar, whole grain bread and oatmeal.

Letters to the ST Forum Page

Recently, ST columnist Dr Andy Ho has had two articles of particular interest to VSS: one about plant based diets and one about the dolphins whom Resorts World wants to forcibly bring to SG. In response, a VSS Exco member wrote a letter that ST published online: http://www.straitstimes.com/STForum/
OnlineStory/STIStory_705881.html

 

Our new intern, an NUS student, also wrote in,
but that letter has yet to be published. Here it is:
 

Release the Dolphins

I refer to Dr. Andy Ho's article entitled "Of animals, rights and moral agency" (18 Aug), where he argued 25 dolphins that once roamed freely in the Pacific Ocean should be kept in lifetime captivity for entertainment purposes at Resorts World Sentosa ("RWS"). As an animal lover, I am glad he agrees it is important to promote animal welfare. He has rightly stated "we are not free to abuse animals... we are moral agents, for whom human morality dictates that we be humane towards animals".
 

However, he was mistaken that "it is hard to see how enclosing the RWS dolphins in a pen and training them under the eyes of a team led by five vets would inflict pain or destroy them, if they are handled so they suffer no physical pain or bodily discomfort". Scientific evidence abounds as to the suffering that capture and captivity subject dolphins to.
 

Capturing dolphins is cruel because it rips them away from their natural ocean environments where they with their family and pod mates. Statistics show 53% of dolphins that survive capture will die within the first 3 months due to stress, panic and trauma.
 

Furthermore, dolphins are used to constantly travelling, playing, fighting, searching for food, and exploring the depths of the ocean. In captivity, their natural feeding and foraging patterns are lost and behaviours associated with mating, dominance, and maternal care are severely altered.
 

Readers may easily find more evidence online. Since humans should treat other species in a humane manner, we should release these 25 dolphins into the wild.
The writer also stated "However unpalatable activists may find it to be, animals are often sacrificed to meet human ends. The entire livestock and meat industry is premised on that, as is the practice of testing drugs on animals." However, just because animals are already sacrificed to meet human ends does not justify us perpetuating such practices. But the appalling conditions of factory farming merits another discussion.
 

Finally, he suggested "using animals in the laboratories is morally acceptable because the practice eventually leads to cures for or prevention of deadly illnesses in millions of human beings". Again, this is irrelevant. Even if the practice may eventually lead to medical breakthroughs, saving millions of lives is hardly comparable to profiting from entertaining RWS visitors. Does the latter really necessitate subjecting wild dolphins to a lifetime of pain and suffering?

VSS Inbox 1 – Resorts World

Resorts World seems to be helping the SG economy. However, vegetarians are not completely happy with them for two reasons: their plan for a captive dolphin programme, and their food, as can be seen in the following letter which was Cc-ed to VSS.
 

Dear Sir/Mdm.
 

I had unpleasant experience when visiting Universal Studio recently with my overseas friends.
 

My friends were all PURE vegetarian; one of my friends tried to bring vegetarian food inside but was stop at the entrance. We were told that vegetarian food is
available inside.
 

However, we were all very disappointed as we search around the whole place and could only find one Chinese/Asia vegetarian food stall selling only one single
menu (noodle) and no any other option available. Some of my friends choose not to eat as noodle is not suitable for them.
 

I was really felt shameful! not to me but to Universal Studio! Such a big well-known resort world cannot even provide a simple good impression for
tourist. And if you are going to stop people from bring food in at least offer people something good inside. Nowadays vegetarian is very common and a lots of
people are vegetarian, even in a five star hotel is serving this variety I don't see why your management cannot make some good effort and attention on this
matter. At least provide more than one dish with more presentable food for customer. And it was very expensive for a simple noodle like that. Or allow vegetarian to bring in
their own food.
 

I believe my friend will go back to their country to spread or share the story to other many vegetarian friends out there that Singapore Famous Resort world
treat discrepancy for vegetarian.
 

I hope the management can do something about it.
 

Resorts World replied as follows.
 

Greetings from Resorts World Sentosa.
 

Please accept our sincere apologies for the
inconveniences caused.
 

Kindly be informed that we have already escalated your feedback to the relevant business unit in charge who will be in direct contact with you once they have the confirmed information.
 

Should you need any further assistance please feel free to contact us at anytime.
 

Thank you and have a pleasant day.
 

VSS wrote both to the vegetarian and to Resorts World. Here's what we sent to our vegetarian friend.
 

Thank you for being a "noisy vegetarian". Too often, we vegetarians are quiet and we do not want to cause trouble. However, meat eating creates a great deal of trouble for human health, for the environment and for the animals who are eaten. Thus, we need to raise our voices, politely but persistently, so that more vegetarian alternatives are available.

VSS Inbox 2 – Diet & Environment

ONE (Singapore) is a dynamic organisation dedicated to ending poverty globally and locally. This month, they are having two programmes, on 8 and 10 Sep:
http://www.onesingapore.org/events/lifestyle-
choices-to-eradicate-global-poverty-guest-
lecture-series

 

In regard to the 8 Sep programme specifically on lifestyle choices and poverty, ONE(s) sent VSS the following query:
 

Would appreciate your thoughts on this article please:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/environment/
climatechange/7219223/Becoming-vegetarian-
can-harm-the-environment.html

 

A VSS Exco member sent this reply:
 

Many factors affect the climate change impact of a particular food eaten in a particular place: transport is one of those, as is the production process. So, if I raise chickens in my home using table scraps, it will probably be more climate friendly than eating veggies flown in from Chile. Yes, it is possible for an animal based meal eaten in a particular place, consisting of particular foods, grown in a particular way, with a particular form of inputs, transported in a particular way over a particular distance to be more eco friendly than a particular plant based meal. But that tells us little or nothing about general statements about what foods to advocate from a green perspective.
 

When I personally decide what to eat, I take a holistic view, including env, health and kindness. I'm sure that with enough creativity, someone could even concoct a scenario in which it is kinder to eat meat.

Interview with Vinitha of NutriHub

Vinitha Ang is a registered nurse who runs NutriHub organic cafe – http://nutrihub.blogspot.com – now at 46 Temple St, in Chinatown. The cafe is closed on Sunday, but available for group booking or hosting events / classes. Opening hours are Mon to Sat 11am to 8pm (available for dinner after 8pm based on reservation). Vinitha also offers a range of cooking classes. Recently, Vinitha was interviewed for the VSS e-newsletter by Ana Laura Rivarola Oneto. Here is Vinitha's story in her own words.
 

Having nursed my parents through their battle with serious illnesses and sufferings, I realised that we have to take good care of our diet, especially those of us with high risk family history. Since 2004, I have totally changed my diet to vegetarian and progressively to a more wholesome organic vegan diet.
 

Working at the National Cancer Centre for 7 years, I saw young and old patients suffering from both cancer and its treatment's side effects. Sad to say, there is no emphasis on a healthy vegan diet as part of the cancer management. As a health care provider, I've also seen people suffering from diseases that might be easily cured with a change of diet. This is why I have been giving consultation and dietary advice since 2007, when I started my Organic Retail & Cafe business to promote a healthy lifestyle.
 

Although I've made losses in my business, I have strived on, as I gain the happiness and satisfaction which I did not get it in my career in hospital, especially after seeing my customers and students improving their health status and recovering from their illness. I create lots of innovative dishes in order to attract non-vegetarians to like our vegan, healthy – no MSG, no mock – foods.
 

If someone is considering becoming a vegetarian and asks for my advice, I would say not to rush – do it one step at a time. Change progressively by increasing intake of fruits & vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts & seeds, then reduce intake of meats, poultry and dairy products. I also guide those who want to convert to vegan or raw food diet, as I walked the path myself and understand all the difficulties and concerns about diet deficiencies.
 

Raw foods not only contain the essential nutrients we need, but they are also more alkaline and boost our body energy with lots of enzymes. That's why it is very important to include more raw fresh fruits & vegetables in the daily diet as our body falls sick or our recovery is slow due to the acidic environment. To teach about this, I created the "Raw like cooked" raw food class where my students enjoy the raw food as if it was cooked.
 

Please remember: "Good Nutrition does not just add Years to your Life, but also Life to your Years."

10 Ways to Convince Kids to Like Veggies

Not everyone likes vegetables. Even some vegetarians don't like them, but maybe that's because we don't know how to prepare them, and sometimes the best preparation can be almost no preparation at all: just eating the veggies raw or lightly steamed.
 

Kids are sometimes the toughest audience for vegetables. Here are some tried and true (sometimes) ways to change that: http://tinyurl.com/3r5vhvb
 

Here's one of the tips:
Get them while they're hungry – If they're hungry, they'll eat. Before dinner, serve an appetizer of colorful vegetables, such as carrots, cucumbers, and red capsicum.

Another Shark Fin Ban

Yet another place, the US state of Oregon, located on the Pacific Ocean, has made it illegal to sell, trade or possess shark fins. Indeed, more people are becoming aware of the cruelty and ecological damage associated with this prestige dish, which is still far too common at special occasions in SG. Fortunately, there are veg versions of shark fin soup. More fundamentally, let's make it so that people who really want to impress their friends and family do it by serving delicious plant based foods.

Excellent Source for Free Nutrition Videos

We received this from one of the world's top veg nutrition experts: Michael Greger, M.D., Director, Public Health and Animal Agriculture, Humane Society of the United States | Humane Society International | Humane Society Institute of Science and Policy, DrGreger.org, NutritionFacts.org, twitter.com/nutrition_factsfacebook.com/NutritionFacts.org
 

I thought you might want to alert your members about a new resource, NutritionFacts.org, a labor of love featuring all the videos from all my past Latest in Clinical Nutrition DVDs split into hundreds of bite-sized topical segments that can be searched and shared. Everything's free. It's strictly noncommercial (no ads, not selling anything), strictly science-based (I even have links to all the primary source citations). And the best part is that starting today I'm going to upload a brand new video every day, seven days a week, for at least the first 365 days.
 

In addition to checking out the site and sharing it with their friends, folks can also subscribe to the daily video feed (http://nutritionfacts.org/videos/feed/) or follow it on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/NutritionFacts.org) and twitter (http://twitter.com/nutrition_facts).
 

My dream is for this to grow into an authoritative source on the latest in plant-based nutrition and would very much appreciate anything you can do to promote it to your lists. – Michael
