Vegan Strongman Patrik Baboumian posted this on his Facebook page the other day, I think it's a great message to share on Thanksgiving Day!

I hope you all have a happy, plant-based Thanksgiving!
-Scott

Dear friends in the US,

In a few days you are going to celebrate Thanksgiving and if I may ask you for your attention I would like to make a suggestion this year.

Why don't use the opportunity and thank someone that has done labour for the whole human race for thousands of years.

Someone that has helped us as a species to come to where we are today.
Someone whose labour, tears, sweat and blood has been the price for our development as a society.

I'm not talking about Jesus Christ. I'm not even talking about a person.

I'm talking about the animals that we have used as our pets, as food, as our slaves on farms, as the victims of our scientific experimentation in laboratories, as clothing and even as subjects for our mere entertainment even if entertainment means just to kill them for sport for thousands of years. 

Without the suffering of all those animals, we would not be where we are now.

So isn't it time to give something back? I really think it is!

If you agree please consider giving the whole animal kingdom a holiday from slavery just for one month.

Go vegan for a month and give something back to those who we owe so much to.

Because animals do not have a voice to speak for themselves I'm asking you on their behalf.

Sincerely yours,
Patrik Baboumian

Work with and around many high school athletes who eat animal protein (supplements and food) to gain size and strength. At this point I believe that if their sole goal is to gain weight and strength, animal protein is the way to go. For reasons we all know, I would like to convince there is a better way to attain what they want. Any advice would be beneficial to me and many young men.

We can't simply discount thoughts and the rapid stream of consciousness many of us experience in any given moment.

People try to hide what they feel, but I could always see past that by subtle visual cues.

Makes a good parlor game but a bit inconclusive as eyes need other physical indicators to "read" feelings.

09/25/2014 5:19pm

The community of who people interact with are very different. Different races interact with different groups, different socio-economic backgrounds interact with a different pool of people. A good study, or experimental exercise, will have to control for that.

The ability to act appropriately using your empathy takes more, for sure. but if when you see the expression, you can recreate it in yourself and from that recognize the feeling, that is the key to understanding what the other is feeling.

The prevalence of obesity has increased markedly since 1976, now exceeding 30 percent among U.S. adults, and has well-known associations with illness and disability. Although many studies have examined treatments for obesity, data supporting physical activity guidelines to prevent long-term weight gain are sparse, particularly during the period when the highest risk of weight gain occurs, according to background information in the article.
