Dialling Down the Grim Reaper Gene
Only about one in 10,000 people live to be a 100 years old. What’s their secret?
Why vegan is the greenest diet
Scientists are convinced we have little more than 10 years to get climate change under control! But what can you do as an individual? What if there was one simple change you could make that would be more effective than avoiding flying, buying an electric car and switching to a green energy supplier. Well, there is!
Plant protein is best
Yet another study has shown that plant protein is better for your health than animal protein, this time looking at weight loss and blood sugar control.
This vitamin is vital for getting energy from food, maintaining healthy nerve cells, and the production of DNA and red blood cells.
See our A-Z of Nutrients for the answers to all your questions about essential nutrients.
Our brand new leaflets are here! They contain the most up-to-date information on the positive effects of a vegan lifestyle on our health, the environment and the animals. These leaflets are brilliant for spreading awareness and taking action. Perfect for outreach events, stalls and handing out to friends and family.
Forming part of Viva!’s ‘Healthy Reminders’ series these brand new, colourful designs each come with an extendable piece giving you top tips and how much you need each day!
The pigmentation of tomatoes is responsible for many of their health-promoting qualities. The main tomato powerhouse is lycopene. This red pigment is a strong antioxidant which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. The redder the tomato, the more lycopene it contains – and cooking helps the body to use it!

Pushing the boat out for this extra special event, Viva! and guests will be dining on The Elizabethan riverboat. Join us to enjoy stunning views of the Thames as we cruise past the London Bridge and other spectacular London landmarks, all the while enjoying a gourmet 3 course meal.
