I just had to add one more to this outrageoulsy long thread.
My husband and his family are of norweigen descent and they are all some cheese eatin , butter suckin, most dairy consuming group of people on the planet. I cringe at family get togethers I can literally feel the cellulite on the back of my legs quiver and grow larger!!!And they are ALL thin beautiful healthy and perfect. Yes they have ailments of minor distinction in comparision to myself who became a vegan for 2 years with absolutely no health benefits, although I remain a veg ( for 11 years straight and off and on since childhood)i eat eggs and some dairy in moderation I still have shit%y health go figure.
