I am utterly amazed at some of the ridiculous responses posted here today. Meat eaters calling me a food Nazi, other meat eaters suggesting that a
fruit diet will give me some anemia-induced disease or illness. Are you serious!!!! Some of you meat eaters have no clue what you're talking about.
Not surprising coming from a mass group of people who only eat food because it tastes good. The truth is, Bacon and Eggs are not healthy. Eggs have
zero percent nutritional value and Bacon is just fried artery-chokes. If you want real energy in the morning, eat fresh fruits, drink fruit juice or
have a organic frozen fruit bar. Believe me, it will make your body happy. (Make sure you don't drink any disgusting cow milk with that either). By
the way, did I mention that fruits and veggies provide many of the vitamins, minerals and nutrients your body really needs including protein. I mean
let's face it, Meat eaters can't live off protein alone. Nuts, and seeds are also good sources as well. Sadly enough, meat isn't even the best
source of protein. Dark green leafy vegetables like Spinach, Greens, Wheatgrass, and Blue-green Algae are. The only reason meat contain any traces of
protein is because animals like cows eat grass because they're natural herbivores (like all meat eaters should be) and look how huge they are!! If
you want to have a heart-attack before 50, a belly the size of a beach ball, and a weak stomach, a dying prostrate, or a liver that is backed up with
fatty acidic toxins to the point where it can't even do its job anymore, continue to eat bacon, eggs and other garbage. Don't say you haven't been
warned!! And by the way, anyone who lived to be 70 years old eating fried, artery clogging foods could have lived twice as long with a vegan diet.
More to come!!!

dude, again with the insinuations. EGGS HAVE NUTRITIONAL VALUE! not only do they contain High Density
Lipoproteins which are good for you, but they also contain choline. choline is vital for:
Choline serves various functions in our bodies – in the structure of cell membranes, protecting our livers from accumulating fat, as the
precursor molecule for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, and more.
So don't act like eggs have nothing to do with nutrition. Served and prepared correctly, you can make a healthy meal with eggs. and stop with the
bashing! milk is good for you too! skim, mind you. but it's still good. it gives you vitamins A and D and Calcium. not to mention:
Biotin and pantothenic acid are B vitamins important for energy production.
Iodine is a mineral essential for thyroid function.
Potassium and magnesium are for cardiovascular health.
Selenium is a cancer-preventive trace mineral.
Thiamine is a B-vitamin important for cognitive function, especially memory.
Vitamin A is critical for immune function.
Vitamin B12 and riboflavin are necessary for cardiovascular health and energy production.
Vitamins D and K are essential for bone health.
(all found at en.wikipedia.org...
and if you read right under that, it also mentions a possible link between drinking low-fat milk and decreasing chances for arterial hypertension,
coronary heart disease, colorectal cancer, and obesity. obese people may also benefit from reduced risk of insulin resistance, meaning less chance for
type two (then possibly type one) diabetes! All the facts are there, my friend. of course, there are negative possibilities, although they haven't
been as thoroughly tested as the positive ones.
*edit* adding another point: do you know what it's like not to having a functioning thyroid? it's horrid. i nearly died so many times because of it.
so be sure to drink... hmmm... if only there was a beverage that had traces of iodine... oh yeah there is! milk!
