Thanks for the links!
It will be interesting to read the many perspectives offered. I was vegan for six years before discovering that the joint-swelling I had been treated
for by my chiropractor was actually an allergic reaction to soy. Thankfully, I had refused the drug my doctor wanted to prescribe for my "very rare
early-onset of arthritis". This experience made me hyper-aware of the fact that, despite my feelings on the ethics of meat (which I still struggle
with), more conventional diets may be conventional for a good reason. As with most learning we do, I was again reminded to stop being so judgemental
of others - something veganism and vegan literature seemed to facilitate.
