Los Angeles encourages residents to go vegetarian on Mondays

Posted: Updated:

First New York City banned trans-fat and giant sodas.  Now Los Angeles is encouraging "Meatless Mondays."  The Los Angeles City Council has adopted a resolution encouraging its residents to go vegetarian on Mondays.  This is not a law; it's all on a voluntary basis.  Council members say the plan is to help reduce intake of saturated fats.

In a statement, the American Meat Institute responds with "if the sponsors of the Meatless Monday's campaign were truly concerned about nutrition, they'd host 'more veggie Monday'. Instead, they target for reduction a food that is already consumed in the proper amount, and that is simply irresponsible."
