A plant-based diet can provide all the nutrients you need and can help prevent cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses.
nada is a Vancouver, BC based charity since 1989. We advocate the move to a plant-based diet for environmental sustainability, better health, and compassion toward animals.
A diet heavy in animal products is simply not sustainable. Animal agriculture is very inefficient and causes significant environmental damage.
