LeBron James And Advertising

by lean machine Tuesday, Apr. 01, 2014 at 9:26 PM

an open letter to LeBron James.... thousands of champion vegan and vegetarian athletes ask you to join their ranks

LeBron James And Adv...
i.png, image/png, 350x254

Dear LeBron,

Thank you for your great generosity to your native city, for the time you give to the young, and for the example of excellence and sport as art you give to the world.

God has entrusted you with the burdens of leadership. Please lead your millions of young fans into pure food, not food which causes cancer, heart disease, food poisoning, strokes, kidney dysfunction, Alzheimer's, obesity etc.

Please end the advertising of cow and pig flesh for a fast food chain. They are 'foods' which cause many kinds of human disease, animal agony, energy waste, animal habitat destruction, global heating. In the last 7 days your native city has had a 60 degree span in temperature from 12 degrees to 72 degrees .... one reason is the deforestation caused by cattle ranchers.

We ask that you look at this video link of many dozen champion athletes who don't put dead bodies into their own body shrine.

PS: I once dreamt that you said 'save unnecessary steps'.... advice I have taken to heart. God protect you.

Additions to this small fraction of vegan and vegetarian athletes are very welcome

Note:

Vegetarians and vegans receive life insurance discounts from

a growing number of companies.

The hearts of vegetarians and vegans pump the same amount of blood with 20 to 45 fewer beats per minute

Isocaloric studies reveal the average vegetarian weighs 11 pounds less than the average nonvegetarian while vegans weigh 23 lbs less (after 3 months with all receiving the same

number of daily calories)

A 7 year study by the US government conducted on nonsmoking nondrinking vegetarian Adventists and nonvegetarian Mormons gave several years longer life to

the Adventists.
