I talked to a friend of mine this afternoon. He is almost a vegan. He does eat flesh when he goes to a friends home. He mainly eats vegan for health reasons. He told me about one of his friends. She had cancer and was in a wheel chair. They started giving her vegan meals with a huge amount of veggies and fruits. I forget the length of time that they had her on this vegan diet but after a period of time she was cured. She now is out of her wheel chair and her doctors can no longer find any cancer.
This is not the only time that I heard of similar stories. When I was a vegetarian I was found to be a type 2 diabetic. Six months after I became a vegan I was no longer listed as a diabetic. That was 14 years ago and all of my blood tests still show that I am no longer a diabetic.
A few months ago I was told by my optomologist surgeon that I had macular degeneration. He told me that it can not be reversed. He also told me that a vegan diet is the best diet to SLOW going blind. I ask him if he was a vegan since he recommended a vegan diet. He said that he was too lazy to eat that diet even though he knew it was the best diet for the eyes. He also recommended that I take some high amounts of certain vitiams. He also suggested that I do not take over a certain amount of vitamin E. I followed his suggestions. Tuesday I had another appointment with the doctor. It has been about four months since he first found out that I had macular degeneration. He could not believe it. My macular degeneration is not as bad as it was four months ago.
I am not suggesting that a vegan diet will cure everything. I am just saying that a vegan diet has helped me and many others. Remember that there are more reasons for being a vegan other than just ones health. I became a vegan for ethical reasons and in my opinion that is the best reason. Comparing a non-vegan diet with a vegan diet and you will see that as a vegan will save thousands of animals in their lifetime. They will also do a lot for the environment. Just look at how much methane that each cow puts out. Since a vegan does not eat cows it means less methane into the atmosphere. So vegans generally have better health, saves animals, and helps the environment.
