SACRAMENTO—The Physicians Committee—a nonprofit with 12,000 doctor members—applauds California Gov. Jerry Brown for signing into law a landmark bill that guarantees patients a healthful plant-based option at every meal.
SB 1138 will require licensed California healthcare facilities and state prisons to make available plant-based meal options containing no animal products or by-products, including meat, poultry, fish, dairy, or eggs.
In June 2017, the American Medical Association passed a resolution that calls on U.S. hospitals to improve the health of patients, staff, and visitors by providing plant-based meals. The American College of Cardiology made the same recommendation.
One hospital in Sonoma County, Calif., reports, “Vegetarian entrées cost about 50 percent less than meat entrées.” The hospital projects saving $5,000 a year by serving more meat-free meals.

Though Jesus wanted solitude, when He saw the crowds, He had compassion on them,
and He healed the sick and the lame. (Matthew 14:14, VOICE)
