CLERGY MEMBERS ACROSS BROOKLYN TAKE ON PLANT-BASED CHALLENGE 10/22/2018

Last week, Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams launched the Clergy Healthy Lifestyle Challenge, a 12-week program to educate faith leaders about the wellness benefits of a plant-based diet. The initiative is being implemented in partnership with The Brooklyn Hospital group of Brooklyn clergy, and 13 clergy members across various faiths have committed to participating. "Our faith leaders are in a unique position to support [our] mind, body, and soul," Adams said. "By modeling healthy behaviors and guiding their congregations in wellness and spirit, they have the opportunity to restore hope for those struggling with their health." In 2016, Adams transitioned to veganism after nearly losing his vision and incurring nerve damage due to type 2 diabetes—symptoms he says disappeared after three months of consuming a whole foods, plant-based diet. Adams has been a vocal advocate for the vegan lifestyle during his term. (vegnews.com)
