Chicago Health Commissioner Says, ‘Go Veg!’
In 2008, we were wildly impressed with Chicago. The White Sox’s U.S. Cingular Field was ranked number five on our Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Ballparks list for its vegetarian food selections. Now, Chicago’s health commissioner, Dr. Terry Mason, has launched his “Re-Start” campaign, which asks Chicagoans to go vegetarian for January. This year, Mason has decided to go vegetarian permanently in order to lead the way for other Chicago residents to slim down their waists and lower their blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels. Well Chicago, you’ve stepped it up a notch in 2009, and we’re impressed!
We could probably all learn something from the Chicagoans (except for, you know, auctioning off senate seats and whatnot).
P.S.: Countdown to the White Sox home opener: 84 days and counting! Any guesses as to what they might add to their long list of vegetarian options?
