"I was in meds for high bp for a few years in my early/mid thirties. I started eating healthy and I was off them in no time. Now I eat a healthy vegan diet and my bp is normal. Also all my other blood work is great! My cardio CRP is .2!!! The way I…"
"Wow, tough break Luara. I'm lucky to not have any food allergies (so far). I like beans, grains, legumes, tofu, tempeh, quinoa, and seitan (wheat gluten) for protein. I try to eat a good variety of foods, focusing on…"
After looking at the info you posted I have upped my B12 supplements. Like you said, it can't hurt. And there's no reason to even chance not having enough!! I also got my omnivore parents onto B12 sublingual…"
"Sorry about the hep C, that must be awful. I know lots of medicines can put a strain on the liver. It must be quite difficult to balance all that and stay well.
Even meat eaters need their veggies, and LOTS of them! My health…"
"Oh, I doubt it would do you any harm. I just doubt it has any actual health benefit. Too many "magic pills" ou there. I have several co-workers taking green coffee bean extract to lose weight. Of course…"
"Eeeewww, no I don't want lab grown meat either. I don't miss eating meat, dairy or eggs in the slightest. I feel great and all my bloodwork is perfect. Think I'll keep eating my veggies!
I'm not too fond…"
"Wow..."Glucovera"...that doesn't sound too much like a scam. Magic pills don't make you healthy...eating healthy food makes you healthy. If it is made from aloe vera and you think aloe vera is good for you....just eat…"
"As I said in an earlier post, the only people with protein deficiency are STARVING!!! They are not getting enough calories. And no, vegans do NOT suffer from this. How fucking absurd. Mycomment was not…"
"Of course they know what is happening to the cows in front of them. That may be one of the stupidest things I've ever heard anyone say. Think this through..slowly. If an animal did not knwo the animal next to it was being…"
"I looked at it, but I am skeptical that he somehow knows that a blood test is unreliable when all the other doctors seem to think it is OK. Not that most doctors know much about nutrition. I take sublingual sometimes and a multi-vitamin…"
"I had my B12 checked two weeks ago...it was perfect. I eat a lot of Red Star nutritional yeast, and drink/use fortified soy milk. I only use sublingual tabs on occaision, because there is plenty of B12 in my diet. But thanks for…"
"And why not empathy for ants?? If I don't have to kill them....why the hell would I??? They are minding their own business and living their little ant lives. I don't know if those tiny brains can process suffering or…"
"I looked into veganism FIRST as a healthy diet. The hard core animal rights vegans often don't care about their own health and know little about nutrition. They are often "junk food vegans".....after all Oreos are…"
"I'm sorry John I don't see your point. Are you saying it is ok to kill sharks because they kill seals??? What about the animals the seals eat?? Who decides which animals lives matter more. If humans are in danger…"
I'm glad you're fighting for animal rights but I hope you realize that some people are never going to agree with you. They just are not coming from a humane place and really don't care to be. Sometimes it is best to finally say that everybody is entitled to his or her opinion and enough has been said about it.
There's a 6 member Vegan Atheist group. If kyou're looking for company among the rare. Actually I run across vegan descriptions every day while looking for people to invite to the group, but y'all don't seem to get together so much.
Heh heh heh. Yeah, the place was freaking dead before Bruce showed up.
He responded to Asharu's post, calling her out on details, such as only 2% of all convicted rapists serving jail time ... and then she went ballistic, engaging in personal attacks and long, emotional diatribes, rather than arguing back rationally and conceding points where she may have been wrong.
... and then I get labeled a troll-enabler, for supporting rational discourse. What a freaking madhouse.
Without Bruce's contribution, Asharu's post would have prompted a few pats on the back and responses of, "Amen, sing it, sister," and the group would be completely dead again, right now.
Are we women SO fucking defenseless we need protection from WORDS now?? Sorry, I'm just NOT that much of a victim.
Thanks. I was contemplating saying something similar, but I hadn't yet. Good to hear the same thing from someone else. The women outnumber the men vastly, and yet some of them are whining about being dominated, or some such. Freaking unbelievable. Feminists are supposed to have a pair of their own.
