A veg diet does work if you stay on it. My Dad has heart trouble went through the open heart operation, had stints put in, took all kinds of vitamins[still does].Was told go home there is nothing we can do for you. if he walked 15-20 feet he had to sit down for 6 to 10 min. He started the all veg diet a year and 1 month ago, now goes up and down stairs, walks 3 blocks everyday is alret and can still drive he is 93. The diet is what did it, he ate what they [heart doctor] told him, no milk, cheese, meat, oil, butter[no bad oil and fat]. It has done wonders. You are never too old to start. The heart book diet said you would notice a change within 6 months and that was true.

I suppose our government will decide this is best for everyone and create policies that require us all to go meat free at least 3 days a week. I’d like to see data related to family history tied into this survey. Some people’s genetic makeup is not affected by eating meat 7 days a week and other are.

I saw a study several years ago which compiled all the major studies on diet and looked at the correlation between diet and health. Instead of looking at heart health or cancer or whatever, they made death the common denominator. Everyone died! There was no significant difference in longevity or quality of life.

The best diet advice I’ve ever read: variety and moderation.
