On top of October Unprocessed and the Vegan Month of Food, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Do those pink labels on products represent a real effort to save lives or is the pink ribbon just clever marketing in disguise?
Wearing pink may help raise awareness about breast cancer, but eating green—healthy vegan foods—can actually help prevent the disease. Perhaps that’s why not only is October just Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it’s also World Vegetarian Awareness Month. If you want to “go” both pink and green, try Pink Lady apples, pink grapefruit, pink rhubarb, or even mushrooms in special pink packaging.
