CKYC Master’s Tea Lecture with Dr. Chester Kam “Veganism”
CKYC non-resident fellow, Dr. Chester Kam, is invited to conduct CKYC Master’s Tea Lecture with the topic of “Why Veganism is Rising in Popularity and What Benefits Veganism can Bring to You” on April 26, 2018.
Dr. Kam shares the basic knowledge and the trend of “Veganism” in the world with our students. He explains “Veganism” is a way of living to avoid all animals for food and other purposes. Dr. Kam also illustrates the survey result which was conducted in the UK to tell the reason why people are increasingly becoming “Vegans”. Zero animal fats, lower cancer risk, bone health, protection from stroke and heart disease, animal cruelty and so forth are the crucial reasons.
When it comes to the topic of nutritional balance, you might ask, “So, if we go vegan, could we get the sufficient nutrition without animal products?” The answer is SURE! Says, protein, which is a kind of nutrients mainly from animal products, but the foods made from soybeans are some of the highest vegetarian sources of protein. Tofu is a non-animal product and it is a complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids that the body needs for growth and repair.
From the lecture, our students learn that people can eat and live healthily while being on a vegan diet as veganism protects people from major and serious diseases common among meat-eaters. Perhaps, this is the evening you start to change your dietary habit.
