Richmond, Va. -- Last week, the Virginia Foundation for
Healthy Youth announced that youth smoking rates in the state have plummeted to
the lowest point in a decade. But smoking isn't the only bad habit with deadly
effects on human health—and in an effort to encourage parents to reduce their

improve his health.
Vegans don't just save their own lives—they save more than
100 animals a year from immeasurable suffering on factory farms, in
slaughterhouses, and on the decks of fishing boats.
