In another milestone for California, Governor Jerry Brown has signed a bill into law that guarantees plant-based options at every meal in state heath care facilities and prisons.
“Thanks to Sen. Nancy Skinner and Gov. Jerry Brown for passing this historic law that will provide plant-based options to hospital patients looking to fight heart disease, diabetes, and obesity—or who simply want a more healthful meal,” says Physicians Committee president Neal Barnard, M.D., F.A.C.C. “Now, it’s time for California hospitals to start putting into practice the plant-based meals recommended by the American Medical Association and the American College of Cardiology.”
According to St. Joseph Health System in Sonoma County, California, vegetarian entrées cost about 50 percent less than their meat-based counterparts. The hospital expects to save about $5,000 a year by serving more meatless meals.
