More than 45 million turkeys are killed every year for Thanksgiving alone, and more than 300 million are killed for food throughout the year in the United States.

Mid-Life Tofu Consumption Associated With Mental Decline
Eating large amounts of tofu in midlife may be associated with mental deterioration in old age, according to the Hawaii Center for Health Research. An analysis of data from the Honolulu Heart Program found that men who ate the most tofu during their mid-40s to mid-60s showed the most signs of mental deterioration in their mid-70s to early 90s. The program began tracing the health of 8,000 Japanese-American men in 1965. Researchers said that both men and women eating tofu two or more times a week were up to twice as likely to show some signs of impaired mental function later in life than those who rarely ate tofu. The proposed link between eating tofu and decline in brain function is the isoflavones, chemicals in soy that affect an enzyme in the body that may block changes in the brain related to learning.

Every year millions of turkeys are sacrificed in order that Americans can show their thanks. How about all people NOT have turkey this year - the following facts from the PETA site might be of interest to ATS members. Let's give the turkeys something to be thankful for too?
