I've learned so much about how our food is processed. The BBC documentary "THE MEN WHO MADE US FAT" on YouTube is a real eye-opener. The whole idea is to SELL us more food, thus we have gotten FAT. Now sell us drugs to make us healthy, etc. Very interesting documentary. And since I'm 63, I remember the news stories about how we had to eat "low fat" etc. back in the 1970s. When I was in high school in the 60's we were nearly ALL slim. I was 5'4" and was 114# and that wasn't "skinny" at all. Things have really changed.

Good luck! Everyone is different and don't think you have to explain yourself or justify what you are doing. Just "for my health" is your answer Period.

Everyone keeps questioning why I decided to give up meat, especially pork. Well mainly because of my health of course. I believe I can feel a whole lot healthier by doing this. I gave up pork years ago when I was diagnosed with brain calcification. I ate pork which wasn't well cooked many years ago. The pork carries so much garbage because they eat a whole lot of garbage! I heard about this so much, but didn't think it would happen to me. I had a maggot chew a spot on my brain and now instead of soft tissue I have a hard bony spot! I dent know if I will face some health issue later on in life, for now I wake up almost every day with a headache. A headache that affects me more on the right frontal of my head. That's where I have the hard bony area! We will see how this goes! Wish me luck SparkFriends!
