Meat Free Week : goals to decrease bowel cancer
Around here, it's meat free week every day of the year, so we're delighted that Bowel Cancer Australia is encouraging people to experience a week without meat, in a quest to reduce the rate of bowel cancer. Because not only is it healthier, it also opens the door to the delights of just how delicious meat-free eating can be.
Meat Free Week :: August 1 - 8 2016
Meat Free Week has been an annual Australian event since 2013, with Bowel Cancer Australia becoming a health partner in its second year. In 2015, Meat Free Week UK was launched, as global awareness of the health benefits of reducing meat consumption has garnered more and more attention. The idea behind it is to get people thinking - not necessarily to get everybody to become vegan or vegetarian all the time, but to encourage everybody to discover how much healthier they can feel on a diet filled with an abundance of plant based goodness.
