I'm reading The China Study right now, it is full of information that shows the benefit of being vegetarian/vegan. It lays out all the studies they did and what they discovered with the tables and charts to back it up.

If you're interested in a more comprehensive look at ALL the negative effects of eating animal products try reading The China Study by Dr. T. Colin Campbell and his son. It looks at the links between consuming animal products and tons of diseases and conditions. Crazy information!

To withstand the world that's what it takes.

Thank you for the article by Kathy Freston. If you don't have time to read the article I copied a couple sentences from the article it all boils down to ----

"A wide array of evidence shows that vegans are less likely to be overweight or obese than meat-eaters are -- because it's not a diet, it's a lifestyle transition. Because these foods are less calorie-dense and lower in fat than animal products, and because all plant foods contain zero cholesterol, eating that way allows us to shed weight in a sustainable way".

This is nice. I always share information like this with the carnivores in my life, especially those with health challenges.
