   But what is the alternative you ask? How will you live without that drive through fast food joint, or that regular burger or steak -- or even that chicken sandwich?   That choice is as individual as the animals you are eating.   That choice means finding another way" a way that has been proven a more spiritually enlightening way -- a less violent way -- a healthier way and the proven path to the least possible entry into disease -- all disease.   (Volpe)

   A great man, T. Colin Campbell and his son Thomas, wrote a book that the world needed to read in "The China Study" after a 20-year scientific study on the consumption of animals and health/disease.   It contains research that proves that eating animals causes cancer, and many other debilitating diseases.   Their focus was mostly on cancer, however each and every disease common to man and their cause - is listed in these pages.

   Another book that has proven through scientific study that heart disease, the number one killer of Americans can be completely avoided, as well as reversed -- yes, I said reversed -- and is Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D.'s "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease" subtitled "Based on the findings of a now 20-year study first published in the American Journal of Cardiology."   This wonderful physician walked away from $150,000 (each) heart surgeries, because he knew there was a better way.   He found it, he published it and he has proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt that eating animals and their secretions causes heart disease and a host of other heart related diseases.  

   John Robbins, who is the man that changed my life for the better has written extensively on his research of longevity in human beings, in "Healthy at 100" evidencing the proper diet for health in "The Food Revolution" as well as his best seller "Diet for a New America" which not only delves deeply into the health benefits of a vegan diet, but also the emotional, loving and human life saving abilities of all animals.  

   The proof of health in relation to diet is endless, truly, and bypassing animal products for ethical, moral and emotional reasons are admirable motives, but now the proof is in -- refraining from eating animals or their secretions also has beneficial health reasons.     

   The reason for eating animals or their products is becoming less and less of a reasonable argument, especially with the knowledge that there are not any legitimate laws to protect these innocent beings who feel pain both physically and emotionally - from worker abuse, feed abuse, improper caging or neglect.   The fact that the enormous numbers of slaughtered animals daily prove that there cannot possibly be "humane' treatment should be reason enough to abstain.     Those who love animals and care about cruelty abstain for those reasons alone -- and if those reasons aren't sufficient, health is also a benefit of nonparticipation.   These animals need your help, your love and consideration.   Going vegan is the only compassionate choice.
