My speech at Parliament House, Canberra, Australia; about Whole Foods Plant Based Nutrition in clinical practice. Including my poem, ‘An Ode to Kindness’ @21:50. Please share with family and friends.
An Ode to Kindness.
Some people say Who are all these animals and why should I care?
Why theyre just like you! if Im really being fair.
They seek out the warmth when it gets cold,
They hope to live happily, and die only when old.
But something bad happens, something not well known. . .
We take their mum’s milk, before her kids are all grown.
Milk meant for her children to make them nice and strong.
We separate them forever; Its so cruel, its so awful!. . . its just so plain wrong.
For they have done us no harm and have caused us no pain.
So why do we do this, why cant we just refrain?
Ah but you can’t be blamed, for what you cannot see!
For the blindfolds have been kept tight, by the Milk Industry.
But unravel them now and let us become wise,
And allow a new way of eating to quickly arise!
One based on kindness and found only in plants,
The solution is potatoes! says Dr Ants. . . its one of those occasions where a win-win rings true,
And not just for the animals. . . but for our health too.
