A little known fact is that eating dairy food does not prevent osteoporosis. In fact, the more protein a population consumes, the higher is the prevalence of osteoporosis. There is a direct correlation between protein intake and loss of calcium from the bone. This calcium-wasting effect by protein has been documented time after time in studies for over 70 years. The U.S. has one of the highest calcium intakes as well as protein intakes in the world, as well as a high prevalence of osteoporosis. Native Eskimos have the highest dietary calcium intake and protein intake in the world; they also have the highest rate of osteoporosis in the world. Something the meat and dairy industries do not want you to know about.

Vegetarians will suffer many problems if they continue to eat dairy food. A vegan diet gives optimal health benefits and is environmentally friendly. Aside from the fact that the meat and dairy industries are destroying our planet, eating a properly balanced vegan diet will prevent disease, including cancer and diabetes.

How sad. No, these dogs are not pets, they are slaves. Who makes sure the dog receives the love, excercise, psychological compensation (for not living a normal life) and interaction with other canines? I will never forget the guide dog on a cruise I was taking. He belonged to an elderly blind man who was travelling with his wife and daughter and, of course, his dog. The dog was old, grey hairs around his muzzle, and he was totally dejected and resigned to his lot in life..... which was? Being kicked by the blind man whenever he did not move quickly enough, being cuffed in the face by the blind man whenever the blind man felt like doing that. Many people on that cruise were outraged at the way this man treated his guide dog and the way his wife and daughter appeared to condone this cruelty. When I returned home, I contacted the Blind Foundation and sent them a detailed report of what I had witnessed. They never got back to me! Animals that assist people should be compensated with love and tenderness. Stop being so heartless.
