I am grateful to Brenda Davis who has worked with me to openly and accurately respond to common questions about shifting to a vegan diet.
A bit about Brenda: She is a registered dietitian, and she has been a featured speaker at international nutrition, medical and health conferences in over a dozen countries, and she has worked in different fields of nutrition.
Below, Brenda discusses why people go vegan and the benefits of making this shift. She also addresses some of the myths around vegan eating, and the things that we should keep an eye on.Read More
I am grateful to Tiffany Damle for writing this article, in which she talks about her journey from eating large amounts of meat, to becoming a vegan for the well-being of animals, as well as her own health. There were many surprises along the way, like confusion about why so much of the readily available information is inaccurate and misguiding to say the least! Tiffany worked her way through it and ended up experiencing priceless benefits.Read More
Is there a connection between cardiovascular disease and diet?
At the bottom of this article, you'll find a short recording in which Dr. Mehta talks about cardiovascular disease and diet. He refers to a few studies, but to keep the content short, he lists others in his document of references, so that we can read them when we have more time.
A summary of a range of studies that looked at the potential link between diet and cardiovascular disease
Here, you'll find a brief look at a range of studies. For each one I've shared some information consistently e.g. the number of subjects, the results, the duration of the study. I've done this to make it easier for you to compare the results from each one.Read More
Why should we bother watching any of these films? We can't make a difference!
I've been faced with this view before, and I get it because I've felt helpless and powerless in the past. I have also thought that there's no point. I've told myself that I can't make a difference! I've then decided not to act and justified it with, 'why should I?' It may not have been about compassion, the environment or health, but that doesn't matter. The point is...I get it. Most of us have been on this journey and we may well experience it again.
However, most of us have come through it and realised that it's not true. In the same way that every penny, smile and action matters; our thoughts also matter. The thoughts are the seed from which everything else flows, and that's why it's important for us to empower ourselves with knowledge and deepen our understanding.
Why do I need to watch these videos about the planet, animals and health?
These recordings will give us information and get us as close as possible, to experiencing some of the things that we fund.
After watching them, we can decide if our choices are having a positive impact on ourselves and others, and then we will know whether any action is necessary. However, none of this thinking can place until we have empowered ourselves with the truth.Read More
