Statewide vegetarian group formed!
The Central Jersey Vegetarian Group (CJVG) has joined up with VSSJ to form the Vegetarian Society of New Jersey (VSNJ)!  Please contact us if interested in helping out with an existing chapter, or with starting a chapter in Ocean County, north Jersey, and elsewhere.
VSSJ's Atlantic/Cape May Chapter has developed and distributed a Vegan-Friendly Cape May Dining Brochure!  This project convinced one of the restaurants to add a vegan option!

"Vegetarians have the best diet.  They have the lowest rates of coronary disease of any group in the country.  Some people scoff at vegetarians, but they have a fraction of our heart attack rate and they have only 40% of our cancer rate." 

--- William Castelli, MD, Director of the Framingham Heart Study, the world's longest ongoing investigation into heart disease and diet.
