Do you think there is a correlation between the increase in animal protein intake and disease?

      • 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.

      • 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. 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.

  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 😜

    • 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.

  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.
