Clinton Foundation seeks ideas to change the world…

Let’s tell them about the greatest world changing opportunity in history.

An email from the Clinton Foundation has been popping up everywhere — seeking ideas from everyone, asking, “What’s your idea for making the world a better place?” So let’s send him a consistent message. I have been thinking for a long time about the single most important thing that Mr. Clinton could do for us: Simply dispel the “protein myth” that most people believe — the myth about actually needing to eat animal protein.

With a powerful organization already in place, who better than Bill Clinton to lead the world's most important global initiative?

Once that myth has been dispelled, all of the great thinkers of the world will be able to start thinking about the enormous benefits that will result from a major shift in the direction of plant-based eating — health, water, trees, biodiversity, climate change, world hunger and so much more.

But, until that protein myth is shattered, the plant-based feeding model is not even on the table for consideration. Here’s how you can help. 

First, watch this video starring Ben Stiller, Kevin Spacey, Sean Penn, Ted Danson and others — including an appearance by Clinton himself at the end. A celebrity spoof, it is very entertaining, but you don’t have to watch the entire six minutes to get the picture.

Enjoy the video, then help me send Mr. Clinton a powerful message.

Now, please scroll down and follow these five simple instructions:

  1. Read the idea below that we submitted this morning.
  2. Copy that idea.
  3. Open the “Submit Your Idea” link below.
  4. Paste that idea in there and send it.
  5. Then send that same idea to all of your friends and ask them to submit the same one.

Here’s our idea that we have been formulating for months; and if this message campaign doesn’t work, we’ll figure out another way to get to Mr. Clinton.

Dear President Clinton,

Thank you for launching this initiative to seek new ideas for changing the world. Here’s my idea; simple, yet extremely powerful. Please announce to the entire world that we don’t NEED to eat ANY animal protein to be healthy. As you well know from following the advice of Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn and Dr. T. Colin Campbell; our wide-spread love affair with meat and dairy is literally killing us and is also contributing mightily to a plethora of environmental horrors. Further, it is totally unsustainable for a host of reasons.

What’s at stake? By telling everyone this basic truth, you will be opening the door for the greatest minds of the world to start planning how we can aggressively, yet smoothly, move in the direction of a health promoting plant-based diet. With this one simple gesture, you’ll open the door for improvements in our own health coupled with a huge reduction in our cost of health care. Equally important, you’ll enable the world’s great thinkers to leverage the uncanny efficiency of plant-based eating to feed 10 times as many people on the same amount of land –while consuming over 90 percent less fossil fuel energy and water.

Home Run. Talking about a home run; you are in a unique position to change the world in the best way possible — promoting health, feeding more people, nurturing the fragile environment, conserving water and fossil fuels and gradually ending the horrendous practice of growing and killing sixty billion animals per year for our dinner tables.

More than one message. It will be necessary for you to make this crucial announcement more than once; it may require hundreds of repetitions before people everywhere really get it. You see, as it now stands, most of the brightest and best-educated people on Earth still believe they truly NEED to eat animal protein; and it will take someone with your credibility, authenticity and leadership skills to convince them otherwise anytime soon.

One Final Point. As a former president, you may be one of the few global celebrities alive that could make such a world-changing announcement without fear of legal action from certain groups citing a violation of our many Food Disparagement Laws in this country. Thank you and God bless you.

Sincerely, J. Morris Hicks, author, Healthy Eating — Healthy World (a new book endorsed by Ornish, Esselstyn, & Campbell; visit our website at

  1. Such communicating via the Internet and our network of contacts and websites — WORLD-CHANGING for sure!

    I posted your article today at two sites that are promoting the need for Atkin-style high fat, high protein diets and that shout-down plant-based nutrition guidance. I’d appreciate votes for “Helpful” on your article and some of mine!

    We can go and support praising of Dr. Esselstyn’s new DVD — “Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease”. My Review, 5-stars – is there:

    I’ll show Ch. 2 of the DVD at tonight’s “Society of Vegetarian-Inclined People” (SoVIP) meeting!
    And – I’ll hand out a hard copy of your post today!

  2. Bill Kranker says:

    J. Morris,

    I am totally in agreement. This idea will need some heavy weight support to get traction. Being that former President Clinton is already in the Vegan camp sould make this more saleable to him.

    I will send a note.


  3. Lester says:

    Jim, I think this just might get President Clintons attention. I sent your meassage to the foundation with a request that Bill pass this by his daughter and also made a donation. Keep up your wonderful work and together we can make a change for humanity!

  4. cacatua21 says:

    Brilliant! I sent a message and followed through on the donation too. I hope that he gets bombarded with enough of these to make him sit up and take notice!

  5. Karen Kane says:

    I sent the message and included this: Although I appreciate that Rachel Ray is attempting to improve school lunches, I am disappointed that she includes cheese and meat in all her recipes. They could all be improved by omitting those items and replacing them with beans and vegetables.

    We’ll hope President Clinton sees the wisdom of encouraging the world to adopt the healthy diet he has!

  6. Jeremy says:

    Great idea. I am thinking that once Hillary has decided not to run for office anymore we can really expect great things from all the Clintons (Bill, Hillary and Chelsea) in leading the charge towards going plant based. Another great post!
