Hi Meetup Member,

Thanks so much to those who have sent me their top five favorites on this Earthsave radio ad campaign. But I realized I've been asking you to do the nearly impossible! Please look over these proposed ads again and send me the ad titles to the five that touch you the most deeply, and which make you want to take greater action on these issues.

Please don't pick the ones that you think might influence the most people. That would be very difficult for most of us. Pick the ones that have the strongest effect on you. And please ask your friends to participate also by sending them this link to our Earthsave website at http://earthsavebaltimore.org/.

Please take note that we've given additional information in the ad about chicken poop, and that there is one additional ad at the bottom of the list.

The campaign will involve four popular Baltimore radio stations, each of which will run ten 30-second ads per month, for a total of 120 ads over a three month period. The Natural Brothers Deli, which is across from the Timonium Fairgrounds, is co-sponsoring the campaign.

If you?d also like to help out by making a donation toward this project, please do so here. http://tinyurl.com/ykuyl97

Thanks so much, and be well!

Peace, Don Robertson

Climate Change
It?s a good thing we?re learning about the power of our food choices. A recent UN report says that livestock produce more climate-changing greenhouse gases than do all forms of transportation combined. The human appetite for animal flesh is also a driving force behind air & water pollution, erosion, deforestation, and fresh water scarcity. Our meat eating habit poses a serious threat to our future. Be a part of the solution! Begin making the shift toward a plant-based diet by contacting Earthsave Baltimore.ORG.

Antibiotics
It?s a good thing we?re learning about the powerful effects our food choices have on human health and longevity. Did you know that antibiotics are routinely fed to chickens, turkeys, pigs, and dairy cows in massive amounts? As a result, bacterial resistance to antibiotic treatment of humans has jumped dramatically since the 1970s. We think there?s a better way and hope you will begin making the shift toward a whole food, plant based diet. For a healthier, peaceful planet, contact Earthsave Baltimore.ORG.

Milk
It?s a good thing we?re learning about the powerful effects our food choices have on human health and longevity. Did you know that there is virtually no evidence that drinking two or three glasses of milk a day reduces the chances of breaking a bone? ? or that the highest hip fracture rates are found in the countries in which the most dairy products are consumed? Be a part of the solution by making the shift toward a whole food, plant centered diet. For a healthier, peaceful planet, contact Earthsave International or Earthsave Baltimore.ORG.

Shrimp & Fish
It?s a good thing we?re learning about the powerful affects our food choices have on the planet, and all those who share it. Did you know that for every pound of shrimp that we take from the ocean for food, we throw back another 20 pounds of mostly dead or dying sea life? And fish are being harvested in much the same way, with devastating results for marine ecosystems. We think there?s a better way and hope you will consider making the shift toward a whole food, plant based diet. For a healthier, peaceful planet, contact Earthsave Baltimore.ORG

Dairy Industry
It?s a good thing we?re learning about the powerful effects of our food choices. Did you know that a cow on a modern dairy farm will spend nearly all of her short life pregnant, so that milk production and profits can be maximized? The male calves, who are inconvenient by-products of that industry, are taken from their mothers within hours of birth, often to be chained at the neck in one spot for their entire, brief lives. We know there?s a better way and hope you ?ll begin making the shift toward a plant based diet by contacting Earthsave Baltimore.ORG.

China Study
?It?s a good thing we?re learning how our food choices affect human health and longevity. ?The China Study? generated massive volumes of comprehensive data, suggesting that the more animal protein we eat, the greater our risk for heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease, osteoporosis and autoimmune diseases. The director of that ground-breaking study also concluded that the consumption of animal products causes more cancers than does any chemical carcinogen. To learn more, contact Earthsave Baltimore.ORG.

Farm Animals
?It?s a good thing we?re learning about the powerful ways our food choices affect the planet, and all those who share it. The vast majority of farmed animals today are raised in appalling conditions, which few of us would want to imagine, let alone experience. The federal Animal Welfare Act offers no protection, because it doesn?t even apply to farmed animals. And the few state laws that exist are often simply ignored. We know there?s a better way, and hope you?ll begin making the shift toward a plant-based diet by contacting Earthsave Baltimore.ORG

Protein, Health, & Fitness
?It?s a good thing we?re learning about the powerful effects our food choices have on human health and longevity. Did you know that a diet consisting of a variety of beans, lentils, fruits & vegetables, whole grains, nuts & seeds has all the proteins people need to be healthy and active? Ask vegan athlete Carl Lewis, winner of 9 Olympic gold medals in track and field, or Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams of the Miami Dolphins. Begin making the shift toward a whole food, plant-based diet by contacting Earthsave Baltimore.ORG.

Hunger
?It?s a good thing we?re learning about the powerful effects our food choices have on all those who share our planet. Industrialized meat production is very inefficient, and squanders precious resources that could be used alleviate hunger. 80% of American farmland is used to grow grains, beans, and grasses to feed livestock. Our farms could provide for more than 5 times as many people who adhere to a purely plant-based diet. Begin making the shift toward a plant-centered diet by contacting Earthsave Baltimore.ORG.

Chickens
?It?s a good thing we?re learning about the powerful effects our food choices have on human health and longevity. Those who have witnessed the conditions in which chickens are raised and killed can understand why poultry is the most common cause of food poisoning in the home. The Atlanta Journal Constitution interviewed 84 federal poultry inspectors and found that more than two-thirds of them were so concerned that they had stopped eating chickens, themselves. Begin making the shift toward a plant-based diet by contacting Earthsave Baltimore.ORG

Egg Industry
?It?s a good thing we?re learning about the powerful effects our food choices have on all those who share our planet. You might not know that the egg industry has no use for newborn male chicks, so they are routinely tossed into plastic bags with hundreds of others and left to smother. ..The free range egg industry is no different. We think there?s a better way and hope you will consider making the shift toward a whole food, plant based diet. For a healthier, peaceful planet, contact Earthsave Baltimore.ORG

Fishing Industry
?It?s a good thing we?re learning about the powerful ways our food choices affect the planet. Did you know that virtually every species of seafood is either already severely overfished or being harvested at maximum sustainable levels? There's simply no way to balance recommendations to eat more fish with the state of the world's oceans, and certainly not with a world population about to hit 7 billion! We think there?s a better way, and hope you?ll begin making the shift toward a plant-based diet by contacting Earthsave Baltimore.ORG

Erectile Dysfunction
?It?s a good thing people are starting to learn about the powerful effects our food choices have on human health and longevity. Did you know that physicians are now using male erectile dysfunction (commonly treated by Viagra) as a marker for heart disease? The artery that leads down there can become clogged or damaged, just like any other. It can also be restored to vitality, like any other. Let food be your drug! Start making the shift toward a whole food, plant based diet by contacting Earthsave Baltimore.ORG

Living Peacefully
It?s a good thing we?re learning about the powerful ways our food choices affect us all. We?ve been blessed with bodies that don't require us to take the lives and the freedom of those with whom we share the planet. As we begin to eat and live more simply and sustainably, we bring our lives into greater alignment with our true peaceful nature. We grow in wisdom and share the joy of living with an ever broadening circle of friends. For a healthier, peaceful planet, contact Earthsave Baltimore.ORG.

Chicken Poop
It?s a good thing we?re learning about the powerful affects our food choices have on the planet. Did you know that the chicken industry on the Delmarva peninsula (that is, the Eastern Shores of Maryland and Virginia, plus all of Delaware) produces 1 million tons of chicken waste every year? It's a primary source of dangerous bacteria, and nutrients that steal oxygen from our waterways. It's no wonder that very little progress has been made on restoring the Chesapeake Bay. Be a part of the solution by making the shift toward a plant based diet. Contact Earthsave Baltimore.ORG.

Nutritional Needs
?It?s a good thing we?re learning about the powerful effects our food choices have on human health and longevity. Did you know that virtually all vitamins, minerals, and amino acids are created in soil or plants? That's why people who eat only plant foods can obtain plenty of protein, iron, calcium and other important nutrients. Begin making the shift toward a whole food, plant-based diet.
