My husband and I went vegan and my diabetes were back within normal range within three months. Can't say enough good things about the results.

Lay aside life-harming heaviness and entertain a cheerful disposition.

I went hard core vegan for 12 weeks earlier this year, wasn't too bad at all an wonder if I changed some of my genes in the process or if that extra week makes a difference - maybe I will have to go vegan again come the new year and do it for a full 3 months this time!!

if I do choose to heat veggies (which is EXTREMELY rare, it is not over 115 degrees. Anything over that starts to kill the important enzymes.

You don't need to follow a vegan diet to lower your risk of cancer - just eat more produce in the rawest form you can stand. In other words, when you cook them - don't kill them!!!

Premise of the article is that following a vegetarian diet lowers risk of cancer. Following a vegan diet further reduced the risk of cancer and also causes changes in out genes!

I do not follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, but though the article was interesting none-the-less.
