Much of what you are about to read here may come as a shock. The following information is now commonly accepted in the scientific and medical community and can easily be verified. We encourage you to research these facts for yourself.


Our bodies make all the cholesterol we need. Eating extra cholesterol has killed more people than: all the wars, natural disasters and car accidents of the twentieth century added together. Eating Vegan means eating no animal based foods. The only source of cholesterol is animal foods. Plant foods contain no cholesterol.


It's simple, the extra cholesterol clogs our veins and arteries restricting the flow of blood. Restrict blood flow to the brain and you'll have a stroke. Restrict blood flow to the heart and you'll get Heart Disease. Restrict blood flow to your cells and you'll get Cancer.


Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the UK and US. Heart disease kills one in five men and one in six women. The number two killer of course is Cancer. A recent study of autopsies shows that 80% of those over 40 have some form of cancer.


Many people now avoid red meat or beef, thinking that white meat is better. The truth is meat is meat. A 3 ounce piece of beef has 75 mg of cholesterol while a 3 ounce skinless chicken breast has 72 mg of cholesterol. The two are mostly the same.


Many today have given up eating animals and become vegetarian. Little do they know that a glass of milk is the same as 7 strips of bacon. Cheese, Eggs, Yogurt, it's all the same. It all contains cholesterol and animal protein, and that is what's killing us.


We've been taught that we desperately need animal protein, but nothing could be further from the truth. Protein deficiency caused by diet is only found in cases of severe starvation. Many plant foods have protein, and plant protein won't kill you. Both spinach and broccoli have near twice the protein of beef. A diet of nothing but potatoes will give you enough protein.


In the west our health problems are caused by excess not deficiency. Don't worry about what you are not eating, beware of what you are eating.


There has never been a single case of calcium deficiency from diet in human history. We've been taught we need the calcium in dairy products to build strong bones. The opposite is actually true. The animal protein in dairy products makes our blood pH acidic. Our bodies then draw calcium from our bones to balance our blood pH. Yes, that means that milk actually causes bone loss. Osteoporosis is most common in cultures that consume the most animal foods.


Never before have we eaten so much animal fats and protein. Animal foods like meat, dairy and fish only became affordable in the 20th century. In the last half of the century we've doubled our meat consumption to an average of 105 kilos per person per year.


We've switched from a plant-based diet to an animal based one. This was the biggest diet change in human history and was followed by a huge increase in cancer, heart disease and diabetes. These were previously the diseases of the rich, who could afford to eat a lot of animal foods.


We now grow far more food to feed farm animals than we eat ourselves. 87% of agricultural land is used to raise the animals we eat. Farm animals consume 80% of our corn, 80% of our grain and 95% of our oats. We spend more time, money and resources fattening the animals we eat than we do feeding humans that are actually starving.


Half the fresh water in the West is used to grow crops to feed farm animals. Half of the fresh water wells are contaminated by agriculture, by growing food that is mainly used to feed animals. Pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and nitrate fertilizers pollute our fresh water. Fertilizers cause algae growth in rivers, which kills water life.


Today's farm animals are neither happy nor healthy. They are drugged up, disease ridden shadows of the animals our grandparents ate. 80% of dairy cows and pigs have pneumonia. 90% of chickens have cancer. Farm animals live a fraction of their potential life span and many would die soon from disease, if not slaughtered on time.


To keep them alive in their unnatural conditions, farm animals are fed antibiotics. Much stronger ones than we use. These antibiotics remain in the food we eat. Increasing our resistance to them, and annihilating out ability to absorb essential nutrients like vitamin B12 by destroying Intrinsic Factor.


Finally, we just aren't carnivores. We're not even omnivores. All carnivores have short guts, through which meat is eliminated before it putrefies. Human intestines are 3 times the length of carnivores. Our guts are even much longer than an omnivore’s intestines, but they're the same length as other frugivores.


Carnivores and even omnivores have higher levels of hydrochloric acid in their stomachs used to digest meat. They also have the enzyme uricase to digest uric acid found in meat. Humans don't, and this means we cannot digest meat as carnivores and omnivores do. Our blood is alkaline in its optimum state. Carnivores and omnivores blood is acidic. We have no teeth or claws to kill with and no snout to rip out internal organs. Physically, we are frugivores, animals meant to eat mainly fruit and leaves.

Why Only Plant Foods?
