The first of October is world Vegetarian Day.

Nearly half of all vegetarian adults cite health as their number-one reason for pushing aside the meat.

Estimates indicate that 30 to 70 percent of cancers in the United States may be diet related.

The two types with the strongest links to fat consumption are breast and colon cancers.

Cooking food until it is blackened- such as toasting a bagel on the extra dark setting-
May increase your cancer risk.

Scientists have found mutagens in very well cooked vegetarian foods.
Mutagens are almost always carcinogenic.

Author John Robbins states that soybeans are 40 times more energy efficient than feedlot beef.

Bagels according to The Bagels` Bagel Book: "In 1683 in Vienna, Austria, a local Jewish baker wanted to thank the King of Poland for protecting his countrymen from Turkish invaders. He made a special hard roll in the shape of a riding stirrup-Beugel in Austrian-commemorating the king's favorite pastime, and giving the bagel its distinctive shape."
