Vegetarian column had the right message

Thank you for publishing Robyn Goodman’s column on the many benefits of choosing vegetarian foods (“Vegetarianism is a healthy bet,” Oct. 7). Interest in plant-based eating is growing, and for good reason: eating more animal-friendly foods while decreasing (or eliminating) our consumption of animal products has been shown to improve our health, lessen our environmental footprint, and reduce animal suffering. With so many delicious alternatives to meat, milk, and eggs, we can enjoy cruelty-free versions of our favorite foods at every meal. And, with all the problems in our world, it’s good to know that each of us can stand up for humans, animals and the environment every time we sit down to eat. Learn more at
