That's cool. How long have you been a veg?? Sometimes I can't believe how long it's been....my boyfriend's recently joined me, but for different reasons. I stand up not only to cancer, but to heart disease (the original culprit to my lifestyle change)
Yea for at least 2 months. I joke with my oncologists saying they're denying my main food group....salad. My favorite. Next to tofu and lentils of course. It's just the bacteria and fruit flies. I'm fighting a cold as it is right now and my transplant is next week. It's pretty cool though. I mean nerve racking, but interesting because it'll prevent the cancer from coming back.
Are you a fan of PETA?? I like PETA 2 just because I can relate to the bands and celebrities that are veg. PETA's extreme. PETA 2 is a little more adolescent friendly. At least I think they are.
I meant autologus instead of Allogenic...I get the two confused....the docs are using my own cells. (Side note). I've heard of those groups before. I am interested in animal rights because I think it's absolutely disgusting the way they're treated. Yes they were sent to this earth for people to eat....maybe in the beginning of time, but think about how red meat and poultry has led to heart disease, cancer, and a variety of flu viruses. It's replusive.
I was thinking and researching holistic cures, but in the end decided surgery and removal of lymph nodes was best. I was pregnant at the time and wanted to get it all cut out so I didn't risk spreading it to my baby, or have to deliver early so I could get chemotherapy. I just didn't want to take any chances (although I worry about taking my chances with chemicals as well) Luckily they cut it all out and I am still cancer free for a little over 3 years. My baby is almost three as well- and doing great.
