Veganism reverses inflammation

Besides seeing all the videos about the treatment of animals on factory farms and all the reports about the huge increase in fat amounts in meats and all the reports about the antibiotics in meats. I am a vegan because it seems to reverse the inflamation caused by eating meats, dairy, white flour and white sugar. It seems to take awhile but it works.

Then another reason is I'm old and tend to gain weight just thinking about food. Eating vegan has dropped my weight to a size 8 and I haven't been that small since high school. At least I look good from the neck down. The meals and recipes are astounding delicious and a treat to have new things to eat and new tastes.

My next project is to grow vegetables from vintage or heirloom seeds and get the tastes that my grandparents enjoyed. I ate some green beans at an Amish Restaurant and couldn't believe the taste. I keep wishing I could go back and get some more. They were bare and steamed without any seasoning and I will NEVER forget them.

Not only has the quality of meat changed for the worse but the nutrition in vegetables and fruits has changed. I learned from a program called Eating, that you have to eat three apples to get the nutrition from the one that Grandma and Grandpa ate.

I will never go back to eating something that will make me ill.

I'm "old" too!

LyNel: I loved your post and that you live in Como--we used to live in Breckenridge, and we would drive over the pass to Como to picnic--in the early 1970s.

I am now, at 69, writing a book about aging and death, and it is all positive. No. Really!

I'm a long-time vegetarian who has just decided to get on with it--becoming vegan has removed so many contradictions from my life! My heath, the health of the Earth, and compassion for animals--not necessarily in that order--are driving my energy in this most important decision.

This site is a wonderful resource and support, helping me face--positively--the challenges of being vegan, being old, and being closer, with every day, to my own death. Aren't we all?

Some UU friends, me, and my daughter are taking the vegan challenge together. We'll keep you posted.
