If you refuse to believe that adopting a plant-based diet is better for your health than an animal-based diet, then you must watch Forks Over Knives.

Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.

Say No to Palm Oil

Palm oil is a type of vegetable oil which is high in saturated fat, presenting health concerns. It is derived from the palm fruit, grown on the African oil palm tree. Oil palms originated in West Africa, but can flourish wherever heat and rainfall are abundant. Today, almost all palm oil is produced in, and exported from, Indonesia and Malaysia; but most of the time not using sustainable measures. 

Thousands of kilometres of pristine rainforest is slashed and burned in order to make way for oil palm plantations. Many orangutans and other animals are killed in the process, for the production of palm oil used in many of our everyday foods and products. This large-scale deforestation is pushing orangutans to extinction, along with many other native species of Borneo and Sumatra.
