North Potomac, Md. -- Wootton High School sophomore Wyatt
Oring is wearing a hospital band on his wrist these days, even though he's
probably one of the healthiest kids in the school. That's because Wyatt has
gone vegan, which has significantly reduced his chances of suffering from
diabetes, cancer, obesity, strokes, and particularly heart disease, which can
begin developing in childhood.
The band includes his name, "condition," date of
admission, and the word "Connection" for peta2's new campaign "Making the
Connection," which each month addresses a different topic related to
animal rights and of interest to young people. The bands are also being worn by
other Street Teamers across the country.
"When someone asks Wyatt why he's wearing a hospital
band, it's a perfect opportunity to explain that the best way to stay out
of the hospital is to go vegan," says peta2 Director Marta Holmberg.
"Wyatt is giving his classmates—and teachers—a lesson in good nutrition
that could someday save their lives and the lives of countless animals
The medical facts are compelling: People who consume a lot
of meat—as tens of millions of Americans do—are significantly more likely to die from heart
disease than are people who don't eat meat. Meat-, dairy, and egg-free diets
can help reverse heart disease and can also
help lower the risk of cancer. Vegans are
also, on average, fitter and trimmer than meat-eaters are, and being overweight
is one of the leading risk factors for type 2 diabetes. Going vegan can also help reverse this
potentially life-threatening disease.

in-person events, online campaigns, and social media.
