Hi everybody. My husband and I stopped eating all animal products as a result of reading 'Diet for a New America', quickly followed by 'The Food Revolution'. I then discovered, 'May All Be Fed' and 'Reclaiming Our Health'. We had been cleaning up our diet for about a year previous and had elimated all dairy products and eggs because we realized they did not agree with my DH at all--so after reading Robbins and deciding to give up me, that catapulted us directly to veganism. That was in 2004 and we have not looked back. We love our lifestyle and our diet, and there is no way, knowing what we know, that we could ever return to eating our fellow creatures.

Glad to meet everyone and hope to make loads of new friends here!!

Although I have never heard of John Robbins, I welcome you to the VB! I found it myself only a few days ago, but have gotten the most information and such an amount of joy out of it, I cannot believe I could do without all this time.

PBS did a DFANA special that I found on video at my library. If you can find it, I recommend it. They centrifuge a guy's blood after he has a supersize meal with milk shake can compare it to normal blood. You can see all the extra fat. They also show big globs of fat being removed from someone's arteries.
