haha. Basing your evidence on single or isolated instances or those without research doesn't really prove much. One of the problems of being
'strictly vegetarian' is that you may be eating a less balanced diet than what is optimal for health. There are plenty of instances where people
simply 'avoid meat' and have a lopsided diet. Many vegetarians eat a certain way due to habit, or conscience, or something other than total
nutrition. I've seen plenty of unhealthy vegetarians. So eating meat makes you a paragon of health? Hardly. I think it much more likely that
those unhealthy people are missing key ingredients in their diet. What is their pH balance? Or their vitamin D levels? Their B-12 levels? Do they
take in enough magnesium? Are they getting enough essential oils? What salts are they eating, or refined sugars? I suspect they have plenty of
other issues that eating meat isn't going to solve.
What is often overlooked is the process of eating 'cooked foods,' which is a trap that many 'vegetarians' fall into. This can lead to an
unhealthy lifestyle. Were those people, that you refer to, strictly vegetarians? raw vegans? There are tons of food options out there. Just
because someone decides to not eat meat does not make their diet healthier. A living foods lifestyle is much more than discarding meat - it is an
approach to eating a wide variety of foods, generally not heated over 115 degrees F, and composed of many foods (too numerous to count) of fruits,
vegetables, sprouted nuts and seeds, healthy oils, etc. Hundreds of different foods. Many unhealthy vegetarians forget that fact.
Please do not confuse a 'living foods' diet with that of being a vegetarian. A vegetarian diet, by definition, is a subset of a living/plant based
diet, and many vegetarians can become quite unhealthy due to a misunderstanding of the nutrients needed to support healthy and radiant living.
A popular misconception of a true raw vegan diet is that people are eating carrot sticks and celery all day long Far from it. The list of foods in a
plant-based diet (living foods/raw foods) is expansive. You would be surprised at the list of foods with high protein and nutritient content.
I'm pretty sure you still haven't read the article I posted, and having a closed mind to a specific 'meat eating' diet is unfortunately quite
common. Hey, I was there 3 years ago. Then I started to learn, and eat, and read, and study the facts. Conclusion: I have found that a living
foods diet is truly a blessing and life-enhancer.
You do realize there are super athletes, bodybuilders, and very very healthy people who are eating the 'living foods diet' without any meats in
them? Again - do some research. Without doing the research and relying on the facts pounded into us by the USDA and corporations looking to sell
packaged products, you are never going to see the light.
My original comments stand - the masses are so brainwashed and hostile to a concept that meat (and other products like dairy, wheat, and refined salts
and sugars) might not be necessary components to a healthy life that folks will find any available comment to post and claim 'end of story' and
declare an 'a-ha' moment.
Sadly, there's not much else to say on the matter other than "go forth and live (or die) in the manner you feel is best." Many closed minded folks
will suffer from ailments and symptoms such as cancers, arthritis, high blood pressure, cholesterol issues, etc. - all symptoms of a diet that isn't
optimal for our bodies, and blame it on genetics. But hey, that's what keeps the medical profession employed, and helps the profits of the big
pharma! Far easier to go to a fat & unhealthy doctor who prescribes some nasty chemical pill that suppresses pain than to eat an organic apple that
actually fixes something in the body, eh? Insurance pays for the pill, so it must be o.k.
