Team PETA does it again! After losing
last year by a scant half a point, PETA has reclaimed the crown in the Sixth
Annual GlobalBee International Quiz trivia challenge sponsored by the Sister
Cities of Newport News. Team PETA blew away the competition—which consisted of
a field of 16 teams representing Hampton Roads–area colleges, high schools, civic
groups, and other organizations—besting the second-place team by a comfortable
margin of 13 points.
Team PETA members Emily Bowling, Chris
Holbein, Hannah Schein, and Lauren Stroyeck aced the diverse topics, which
included geography, cultural traditions, current affairs, and science. The team
walked away with a handsome trophy, which will be engraved with Team PETA's
name and kept proudly for a year.
Holbein attributes the team's success to
its members' self-described status as news junkies but also gives a nod to
their healthy vegan diets,
which he says helps
keep their arteries clear
and their wits razor
vegetarians really smarter? According to a 2012 analysis of nine studies, eating lots of
vegetables is associated with a lower risk of dementia and age-related
cognitive decline. And a study by Southampton University linked a high IQ with
being vegetarian after finding that schoolchildren who tested high on IQ tests
were more likely to become vegetarian later in life.
Want to protect your health, animals, and the environment all at the same time?
It's a no-brainer—go vegan.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
