Also, dont forget that in addition to ethical considerations, there are sound scientific reasons for practicing veganism. It is now becoming readily apparent that the composition of the bodys amino acid pool has a massive and profound impact on the mechanisms of genetic expression. Researchers can induce carcinomas in laboratory animals and turn them on and off at will by modifying the proteins which the animals ingest. They can send them into remission, bring them back, send them into remission, bring them back, send them into remission, bring them backon, off, on, off, on, off. And casein is the winner and champeen when it comes to inducing carcinomas. From a moral standpoint, I would rather eat a half pound of cheese than a half pound of salmon. But from a scientific standpoint, eating the salmon would be a far wiser choice.
