Let the health kick continue. Here’s a link about a prison that uses NEWSTART and a vegan diet. Actually, the prison has two sections that new inmates choose to join–one for NEWSTART participants and one for traditional inmates.
Here’s a quote on outcomes:
When they are released, there is a 70 to 80% rate of recidivism. In the four years the prison has operated, only 30 to 40 of the NEWSTART inmates have returned. “We have a waiting list to get into the program,” he says.
It sounds good, but I can’t say that I want to join the waiting list.
It’s easier to pack light when you leave the warden at home.
