Re: An Apology for Veganism
Welcome to the world of plant-eating. I'm not a vegan; I might be close to it but I don't quite make it all the way. To be acurate, I would have to call myself a pescetarian. That means I'm on a plant based diet but I eat about 7 or 8 ounces of fish per week.
I started this diet around May of 2006 after reading, "The China Study" by T Colin Campbell PhD. There was a lot of cancer in my family too and this plant based diet offers the best hope to remain cancer free.
So, if your goal is to avoid cancer, you're on the right track. And once you get use to the diet, it's very enjoyable, in my opinion. As far as vitamins go, I take D3 and a small amount of B12. This diet should help you to avoid many other health problems as well (degenerative diseases).
Do you realize how rare we are? :-)
