“From creamy, dairy-free chocolate ice cream to meatless chicken, all of these innovative foods make it easy for people to treat their taste buds without harming animals,” says Dr. Kiran Ahuja, vegan food and nutrition specialist at PETA India. “PETA India rewards these winners for preparing delicious vegan food and Brahmarishi Mohanji for making the country a better place. ”
In addition to saving the lives of animals, eating vegan reduces the risk of suffering from cancer, heart disease, diabetes and obesity; helps fight climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions; and even helps prevent future pandemics. Experts largely believe that Covid-19 originated or spread from a live animal meat market, and SARS, swine flu, and bird flu have also been linked to containment and killing of animals for food.
