It’s the End of the World as We Know It–and I Feel Fine
Did the film 2012 give you nightmares? Have you made plans for worldwide apocalypse yet? If not, check it: The Vivos Group is selling spots in fully stocked disaster-proof underground bunkers, complete with power systems, water wells, waste disposal, gym equipment—the works.
There would be little reason to survive, say, a nuclear holocaust, only to die of heart disease or a stroke, so PETA sent the Vivos Group an urgent letter explaining the health benefits of a vegan diet and asking the firm to stock its bunkers with healthy plant-based foods. Plus, a post-apocalyptic vegan diet would spare any surviving animals more terror by making sure that they aren’t exploited and killed for food.
I don’t know about you, but I’m not the world-rebuilding type—after Hurricane Ike, I was barely able to survive for nine days without electricity. But daily life is plenty challenging, and choosing vegan foods over meat, milk, and eggs can give us a significant advantage. So don’t wait for Armageddon to make the switch to a better diet!
