Health and veganism

We are about to go to the coast to visit my brother in law, who suffered a TIA (like a mini-stroke) last week. After seeing this Clinical Nutrition review of the latest research in nutrition last night I am especially sad. Being vegan would have reduced his risk enormously, but he, like so many others sees me as the vegan weirdo.

So many, many serious diseases can be avoided, slowed, reduced or ameliorated by a vegan diet. Diabetes, cancer, heart disease, stroke, dementia etc etc ...

If you read this and have health as a high priority, please consider a vegan diet if you aren't vegan already. Look at the research. The top peer reviewed information shows so many health benefits for a vegan diet.

As a massive bonus, you will also be saving lives and the planet.

Food pics next time, I promise.


  1. I hear ya.
    My diabetic Dad suffered a small stroke a couple of weeks ago too and I have been trying to get him to try vegan for a while now.
    Hope your bro in law is ok.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about your brother. Best wishes for a speedy recovery! (And a possible transition to veganism!!)

  3. Hope your brother is doing well. :)
