Is veganism for you?

22 Aug

As usual I believe in moderation in everything we do is a prescription for good health but there are those who swear by vegetarianism and the more restricted veganism.  I believe that our future food source will be a vegetarian diet because medicine come from the foods we eat. Sustainable health is eating the medicine itself which is food.

Anyway I found this interesting article in the NYT that speaks about former President Bill Clinton’s journey into veganism and his findings. 

“I essentially concluded that I had played Russian roulette,” Clinton said, “because even though I had changed my diet some and cut down on the caloric total of my ingestion and cut back on much of the cholesterol in the food I was eating, I still — without any scientific basis to support what I did — was taking in a lot of extra cholesterol without knowing if my body would produce enough of the enzyme to support it, and clearly it didn’t or I wouldn’t have had that blockage. So that’s when I made a decision to really change.”

The former president now says he consumes no meat, no dairy, no eggs, almost no oil.

“I like the vegetables, the fruits, the beans, the stuff I eat now,” Clinton told Gupta
