Hello everyone.<br><br><br><br>
My names Trent, I'm 17 and live in KC, KS. I've recently decided to become a vegetarian for health reasons. My great grandfather died of a heart attack shortly after my grandfather was born, my grandfather on my fathers side died of a heart attack at 42 when my father was twelve, my grandfather on my mothers side died of a stroke about 9 years ago. Back in December my father (who is a diabetic) had a pretty major stroke at the age of 50, hes alive and is doing pretty well with physical therapy but it was a pretty big shock to the family.<br><br><br><br>
I don't want to end up with all the health problems that have plagued my family for so many years and I know that I can't put off my diet until I'm my fathers age. I'm hoping that eventually my eating healthy will persuade my father to do a big change in his diet too.
