UNITED KINGDOM, June 28, 2001: If you are shopping for life insurance, be sure to check out a company called Animal Friends Insurance. A not-for-profit insurance agency, AFI donates its net profits to animal welfare and rescue groups. In honor of vegetarians, the company has recently commenced selling a special discount term assurance life policy. Recognizing that vegetarians suffer from less chronic diseases, AFI is offering a 25% discount for the first year. Operating out of the U.K., the company could potentially serve over 4 million vegetarians--a number increasing daily out of fear of mad cow disease.
