Mumbai, September 9, 2017: Singer-actress Monica Dogra has chosen to go vegan to be “more ethical and clean in our bodies”.
“I’ve been vegetarian for a few years, but after a bunch of friends watched ‘What the Health’, we had some conversations about just wanting to be more ethical and clean in our bodies, and so we decided to go vegan together,” Monica Dogra said in a statement.
“CrossFit (a fitness regimen) has been really challenging as it’s high intensity and focuses on building strength. I hope to add more yoga to my regimen and then I think I’ll have created the perfect road map for my body’s health and fitness,” Monica added.
On the work front, Monica Dogra, who made her acting debut in Bollywood with the 2011 film “Dhobi Ghat”, is set to release a single soon. (IANS)
The researchers conducted production life cycle environmental impact assessments at the farm level against three environmental indicators - greenhouse gas emissions, cumulative energy demand and land occupation
Are you planning to go vegan very soon? That’s good news for our home planet as a new study claims that a diet high in fruit and vegetables is better for the environment than one rich in animal products.
This is mainly due to the high energy requirements of livestock farming as well as the very large contribution of livestock to greenhouse gas emissions, said the study.
In addition, intensive livestock production is also responsible for significant biodiversity loss due to the conversion of natural habitats to grass and feed crops, the researchers noted.
The study, published in the journal Frontiers in Nutrition, also found that organic food provides significant, additional climate benefits for plant-based diets.
“We wanted to provide a more comprehensive picture of how different diets impact the environment,” said Louise Seconda, the researcher at the Agence De L’Environnement Et De La Maitrise De L’Energie, an environmental protection organization in France.
“In particular, it is of considerable interest to consider the impacts of both plant-based foods and organic foods,” Seconda added.
For the study, the researchers obtained information on food intake and organic food consumption from more than 34,000 adults.
They used what is called a ‘provegetarian’ score to determine preferences for plant-based or animal-based food products.
The researchers also conducted production life cycle environmental impact assessments at the farm level against three environmental indicators – greenhouse gas emissions, cumulative energy demand and land occupation.
