Thunberg told DeGeneres that she would not meet U.S. President Donald Trump to discuss the climate crisis if asked. “I don’t understand why I would,” she said. “I don’t see what I could tell him that he hasn’t already heard and I just think it would be a waste of time really.

“I just thought I need to do whatever I can do, and it’s obviously not going to be enough, but at least it’s something.” She says it was something she just needed to do for herself, “so I could look myself in the eye in this crisis.

DeGeneres ended Friday’s interview by revealing a new section on her YouTube channel inspired by Thunberg.

I just discovered Greta is diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome.
And English is her second language.

But she is more articulate than the President of the US.

Can a Vegan Diet REVERSE DIABETES?

Can a vegan diet reduce the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes?

Can a plant-based lifestyle reverse the disease?

According to the American Diabetes Association, in 2015, more than 30 million Americans were diabetic and more than 84 million adults were prediabetic.

It is likely that this rise coincides with the adoption of the Western pattern diet, which includes a lot of fatty processed foods.

Diabetes.co.uk has vouched for a balanced vegan diet to lower blood glucose levels in diabetic patients, especially in combination with increased physical activity.

The University of London conducted a study which showed that a plant-based diet can ease symptoms of depression and other mental health issues in type 2 diabetes sufferers.

Dr. Pamela Popper, Dr. Joel Fuhrman and Dr. Michael Greger have all spoken to a plant-based diet's effectiveness in managing diabetes symptoms, and even reversing insulin resistance.

I hadn't run into the phrase "Western Pattern Diet" before. So i looked it up

I guess its gaining popularity because the previous term Standard American Diet (SAD) is not just eaten by Americans anymore. and maybe also we don't want it to be confused with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). And I guess it sounds more scientific than just the "Western Diet". And there might be a confusion with phrases like the Out West Diet (Hot dogs and baked beans), or the South West Diet (Tacos and black beans).

But the phrase Wester Pattern makes me think of the plaid you find on flannel shirts. Which I guess shouldn't be confused the tartan which I guess could be called Eastern Pattern.

Sorry. I knew there was a joke in there. Just couldn't quite find it.

And Now This


"Rebellyous produces plant-based nuggets made out of wheat and soy protein. The vegan chicken has nearly three times more fiber, 40 percent less saturated fat and sodium, and 20-30 percent more protein than conventional chicken nuggets. They contain no antibiotics, hormones, or cholesterol."

“Meatless nuggets used to be half as delicious and twice as expensive as chicken. At Rebellyous, our mission is to flip the script and make plant-based meat that is better than animal meat in every way, from price and convenience to taste and nutrition.”

I guess this Plant-Based Meat thing is really a thing.
It seems weird that the path to a more compassionate world is fake meat.
