?w=600&h=456 Though I agree that we can generally get by OK (short, mid & longer-term) with consumption of small amounts of animal products from preferably organic sources. Overall I agree with the studies I cited above that attest to the generally superior health of vegetarians and vegans who eat sensibly. Though there are many who eat poorly - whose primary reason to be veg'n is ethical & who have low concern about their long-term health - and who run the risk of developing degenerative diseases. Simply cutting out meat yet still consuming large amounts of processed junk foods is not a grand recipe for good health. Nonetheless many studies (like those cited above) show that veg'ns are generally healthier than the general (animal-consuming) population.
Ayurvedic medicine is not exactly scientific and like any early medicine is a mixture between some empiric tratments and a lot of magic and religion. The issue you mention about people developping cancer, note that cancer who often is an age related disease became more often as life span extended and secondly our foods today are full of chemical shit. If you think those American chicken are the size of turkeys naturally, think again.
Also, no matter what some vegan propaganda presented fakely as science claims, Homo sapiens is an omnivorous species, and this is obvious including in the anatomy (guts of intermediate size between the longer guts of exclusive herbivorous species and the shorter guts of exclusive carnvorel; the structure of teeth who can chew easily meat and fruits, but, and this is very revealing, no raw grains and not most roots etc.)
The capital city of CR, where I live, is less than 2 hrs away from an active volcano (since last year) but yesterday and today has been erupting strongly tons of smoke and ashes... Yesterday when I got home I felt sick from breathing all that... Today I got my RESPIRATOR out!
It's still active but luckily not so much ash as the day I got sick from breathing all that...Some of them are always active but remain passive The Arenal was a huge turistic attraction... you could see it from a safe distance But I think it stopped and the towns turistic economy is now dead http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arenal_VolcanoThere are natural HOT springs around it... too hot for me though
Once I read that people who really annoys you are spiritual masters Since then I don't let my boss take my inner peace...Instead I try to learn...But I totally agree with you! I don't want to keep hate or anything else inside! So I try to see it from an outer perspective... as if he's my karma and I must learn from it!It's just that sometimes I feel so tired
I've been 10 yrs in this company, there is a law in my country that IF I quit I lose a huge bonus I can't afford it... And I am not materialistic... but if I quit I won't have this bonus and it can take 2 yrs for me to find a new job... that's why I might need that bonus But I'm learning...
