      1. No, although I have seen references to the subject for many years, generally promoting vegetarian or vegan positions. My own eating pattern has developed over the years toward being rather light on animal protein, red meat in particular, mainly because that feels right.

      2. I just wrote a post for next week explaining why I stopped eating meat. Mainly because it felt right for me too. I don’t like how we have turned animals into a product.

      1. Humans have been eating animal for a VERY long time. There seems to be no proof of a direct link between one and the other. It is the in-between (ex.: chemicals) that are the problem.

    1. I think they play a huge part. The food business is one of the worst kept secrets in the world. They are poisoning us.

  1. I think it depends on the person. Genetics certainly plays a big role. You can have to people eat the exact same thing, and one can develop cancer and the other one not. I think the worst culprit is the additional hormones that are fed to livestock.

      1. One of the reasons why I make everything from scratch as much as possible. Yes, food is still modified , but at least there are no additional nitrates, sodium or preservatives in my food.

  2. It is a great vegan drum and they’ve got every right to bang it, but there are hundreds of factors, I think the main one is a sedentary life style, I see overweight 16 year old students getting the lift 2 floors, I mean really?! Medical science is keeping us alive longer, so the longer you’re in the cess pit the more chance you have of getting a disease. Hardly anyone smokes these days, maybe that’s why they’re all stressed out and stress causes ill health. There is medical evidence that links smoking to the prevention of Parkinson’s disease, at the end of the day something’s gonna getcha, so make hay while the sunshines 😜

    1. I agree that the sedentary life is a huge factor. I stopped eating meat only because I could no longer stand the thought of those animals being killed as a product and with disregard. Personal decision. I’ve seen the animals in the slaughter house and they are so full of fear. I think humans should have to kill their own animals and experience the hunt.

      1. Yes it’s all down to personal experience I guess. Brought up on a farm it’s something that has never affected me, but as you say I think if everyone had to kill their own meat there would be a lot more vegetarians. Sadly though I’m not sure if that would reflect empathy for the animal or the fact that most people couldn’t be bothered 😉

      2. That’s a good point. I think I lean more ‘can’t be bothered’ but I also think I am becoming cynical in my older age. lol I find myself saying “I hate people” more and more.

      3. For me it is most people. I cannot help but notice how self-involved people seem to be. Walking while looking at their phone. No one holds doors open any more. They will walk in a door with you in tow to let the door slam behind them.

    1. I hope that in 100 years people look back on a lot of things we do now and are thankful humans figured out how damaging our practices are.

  3. In my opinion, it depends on blood type. I’ve known about the blood type diet since the book was first published, but admit to not following it consistently until last year after the cancer diagnosis. I have a friend who is Type A and she cannot eat beef without her joints hurting. According to Dr. D’Adamo, blood type A’s should be vegetarians. Type O’s are meat eaters, with the exception of chicken. As a type B, chicken is on my avoid list.
