It just dawned on me that a debate on veganisim could could turn into as passionate a one as religion, politics, or sex ! I am curious as to why you believe our bodies are not set up to live healthfully with out animal products. My choice was an ethical one but I believe the health aspect is just as important as the ethics. I've been visiting curezone for over a year - researching different protocols for quite some time before starting a cleansing lifestyle. I always end up in your forum- finding your views to be not only super informative but also grounded in common sense. I trust your views- never finding what you say to be "off the wall" or hard to understand. And for that reason I'm sure you have a well informed common sense reason you believe how you do. I'm including a link to a reading that I found here at curezone. Not that I'm trying to change your mind or inform any further as I know you are well informed, but it is one of the best readings I've ever found on the health aspect of being vegetarian. I think that a cow's milk is produced to feed a baby cow not a human and so on and so forth. I also believe that the world would be a much nicer place if we replaced our consumption of cows milk with human breast milk - with the oxytocin ( pair bonding chemical )content of the milk !!!!
