Bill Gates went vegan. If we would be vegan, we could have 90 billion inhabitants. Beef uses 150 times the water, 200 times the land, 160 times the emissions of legumes per protein calorie. Reasons why I did not eat meat for 20 years and no dairy for 12 years (12% of millennials have already given up meat in America):

1. The Survival of Humanity Argument

Veganism reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which is key to preventing ocean acidification. If the ocean is too acidic, plankton dies and with that 50-80% of the oxygen we breathe is gone, making life impossible ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/gwKRRDiX3nc

2. The Hunger Argument

Number of people worldwide who will die as a result of malnutrition this year: 20 million
Number of people who could be adequately fed using land freed if Americans reduced their intake of meat by 10%: 100 million
Percentage of corn grown in the U.S. eaten by people: 20
Percentage of corn grown in the U.S. eaten by livestock: 80
Percentage of oats grown in the U.S. eaten by livestock: 95
Percentage of protein wasted by cycling grain through livestock: 90
How frequently a child dies as a result of malnutrition: every 2.3 seconds
Pounds of potatoes that can be grown on an acre: 40,000
Pounds of beef produced on an acre: 250
Percentage of U.S. farmland devoted to beef production: 56
Pounds of grain and soybeans needed to produce a pound of edible flesh from feedlot beef: 16

3. The Heart Disease Argument

Vegans have lowest rate of heart disease and low fat low sugar vegan diets have been used extensively by many doctors to reverse heart disease in patients ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/5VAwFvKttav.

4. The Diabetes Argument

Vegans have the lowest diabetes rates, 2 times less than vegetarians and 4 times less than meat eatershttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/5eoqyiX13p8. See in this post how to reverse diabetes with a vegan diet. To measure your own glucose at home for years with a $28 kit, see https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/5ocD2zDyUkW. You can test your levels 1 hour after eating different foods and determine which among the foods you eat give you the best level, conducive to 110 year lifespan (centenarians have lower than average blood glucose). Cow milk causes Type 1 Diabetes sometimes ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/5VVB1tPWG1d. Vegans have lower A1c (reflects average blood glucose) than meat eaters, and thus less brain shrinkage than meat eatershttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/MiF6H8kmozR. Heavy meat eaters are 73 times more likely to die from diabetes compared to vegans, while moderate ones are 23 times more likely to die from diabetes compared to veganshttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/5HaxDi5VAoj. What is really shocking is that even those who eat 30 times less meat than a "moderate American meat eater"- such as the omnivore Taiwanese, are 4 times more likely to have diabetes than Taiwanese vegans ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/CCv8sGetiRr. Thus even a tiny bit of meat can quadruple your risk of diabetes.

5. The Obesity Argument

Vegans are the only group with a healthy BMI, body-mass index on average, being the thinnest group of all. With 2 billion people overweight, it is essential for people to think about going vegan ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/FKuTRJFy5tD.

6. The Alzheimer and Dementia Argument

Vegans are 2-3 times less likely to get dementia and Alzheimer compared to meat eaters ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/eD2Sa4Qz57V.

7. The Osteoporosis Argument

Studies show that countries with highest milk consumption have highest osteoporosis ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/N29AnqZKfex. Kale, greens, oranges, broccoli, spinach, beans, lentils are good sources of calcium. Also, Calcium from Kale and other greens is absorbed better than Calcium from milk (see 15 vegan foods with more calcium than milk) ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/8MMy14RZBpU. For 17 HEALTH reasons why NOT to drink Cow Milk (preventing constipation, diarrhea, prostate cancer, ovarian cancer, colic, diabetes, etc), see ►►https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/fCNXsdqYvbc. ◄◄ Cow Milk has Stroke-Heart-Attack causing Cholesterol too and 10 times more sugars than soymilk or nutmilks.

8. The Environmental Argument

Cause of global warming: greenhouse effect
Primary cause of greenhouse effect: carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels
Fossil fuels needed to produce meat-centered diet vs. a meat-free diet: 3 times more
Percentage of U.S. topsoil lost to date: 75
Percentage of U.S. topsoil loss directly related to livestock raising: 85
Number of acres of U.S. forest cleared for cropland to produce meat-centered diet: 260 million
Amount of meat imported to U.S. annually from Central and South America: 300,000,000 pounds
Percentage of Central American children under the age of five who are undernourished: 75
Area of tropical rainforest consumed in every quarter-pound of rainforest beef: 55 square feet
Current rate of species extinction due to destruction of tropical rainforests for meat grazing and other uses: 1,000 per year

9. The Cancer Argument

Too much animal protein leads to cancer, see many studies at this linkhttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/GRyT6ks8dAm.

Latinas eating bacon and Caucasians eating tuna have increased breast cancer risk according to a February 2016 study in Cancer Causes and Control Journalhttps://news.usc.edu/92558/processed-meat-may-increase-the-risk-of-breast-cancer-for-latinas-usc-study-finds/

VEGANS have lower risk of PROSTATE CANCERhttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/4Xq2dd7LMs2. In 1958, the prostate cancer death rate in USA was almost 400 times higher than in Japan, due to the fact meat and dairy intake was about 40 times higher.https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/RsRJKRBMn1S

The higher the intake of dairy, the higher the prostate cancer ratehttp://www.pcrm.org/health/health-topics/milk-and-prostate-cancer-the-evidence-mounts. See a recent review of studies at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25527754

Laos eats 9 times more unrefined vegan foods and gets 16 times less heart disease and cancerhttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/cS5xiubGSHD

VEGANS can have 3 times lower rate of OVARIAN CANCERhttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/5ozBdZZRrbm

The more animal products, the higher the intestinal cancer ratehttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/EmnyZubXPLz, colon cancer ratehttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/CTdeao1aDGh and the breast cancer ratehttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/WFWB6jSoKzz. In fact, when people gave up meat, dairy and processed foods and embraced a raw vegan diet, they cured all kinds of cancers, including colon as explained at https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/hiCPzFDKb9m.

According to Harvard researchers, when dairy intake exceeds the enzymes’ capacity to break down galactose, it can build up in the blood and damage the ovaries. Women with low levels of these enzymes have triple the risk of ovarian cancer when they consume dairy.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2567871

The World Health Organization has ruled that bacon, sausages, hot dogs cause cancer, while beef, pork, veal and lamb are "probably carcinogenic"http://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2015/10/26/451211964/bad-day-for-bacon-processed-red-meats-cause-cancer-says-who

Increased risk of breast cancer for women who eat meat daily compared to less than once a week: 3.8 times
For women who eat eggs daily compared to once a week: 2.8 times
For women who eat butter and cheese 2-4 times a week: 3.25 times
Increased risk of fatal ovarian cancer for women who eat eggs 3 or more times a week vs. less than once a week: 3 times
Increased risk of fatal prostate cancer for men who consume meat, cheese, eggs and milk daily vs. sparingly or not at all: 3.6 times.

See many vegan forms of "eggs, meat, cheese" ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/C2fUeYAPhFR if you absolutely like the taste and texture of those.

Cornell Professor Colin Campbell has shown that tumor growth in rats was greatly enhanced by diets containing >10% animal protein (casein, 87% of the milk protein is casein) and was completely repressed with either 5% animal protein or >20% plant protein at ANY STAGE OF TUMOR DEVELOPMENThttp://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/85/6/1667.full - Am J Clin Nutr June 2007, vol. 85 no. 6 1667

CARCINOGENIC "Heterocyclic amines (HCAs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are chemicals formed when muscle meat, including beef, pork, fish, or poultry, is cooked using high-temperature methods, such as pan frying or grilling directly over an open flame" ► http://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/causes-prevention/risk/diet/cooked-meats-fact-sheet

10. The Waste Argument

Animal agriculture produces millions of pounds of waste daily in America alone. *A 2500 dairy cow farm produces more poop than the city of Minneapolis (almost half a million people). This has to be gotten rid of. It can be infested with mad cow disease at times, swine flu, bird flu perhaps if not beef. Fecal matter from dairy farms is starting to destroy our drinking water supplies and it has already been causing huge dead zones from the Chesapeake Bay to the Gulf of Mexico.

11. The Cholesterol Argument

Number of U.S. medical schools: 125
Number requiring a course in nutrition: 30
Nutrition training received by average U.S. physician during four years in medical school: 2.5 hours
Most common cause of death in the U.S.: heart attack
How frequently a heart attack kills in the U.S.: every 45 seconds
Average U.S. man's risk of death from heart attack: 50 percent
Risk of average U.S. man who eats no meat: 15 percent
Risk of average U.S. man who eats no meat, dairy or eggs: 4 percent
Amount you reduce risk of heart attack if you reduce consumption of meat, dairy and eggs by 10 percent: 9 percent
Amount you reduce risk of heart attack if you reduce consumption by 50 percent: 45 percent
Amount you reduce risk if you eliminate meat, dairy and eggs from your diet: 90 percent
Average cholesterol level of people eating meat-centered-diet: 210 mg/dl
Chance of dying from heart disease if you are male and your blood cholesterol level is 210 mg/dl: greater than 50 percent

12. The Natural Resources Argument

User of more than half of all water used for all purposes in the U.S.: livestock production
Amount of water used in production of the average cow: sufficient to float a destroyer
Gallons of water needed to produce a pound of wheat: 25
Gallons of water needed to produce a pound of California beef: 5,000
Years the world's known oil reserves would last if every human ate a meat-centered diet: 13
Years they would last if human beings no longer ate meat: 260
Calories of fossil fuel expended to get 1 calorie of protein from beef: 78
To get 1 calorie of protein from soybeans: 2
Percentage of all raw materials (base products of farming, forestry and mining, including fossil fuels) consumed by U.S. that is devoted to the production of livestock: 33
Percentage of all raw materials consumed by the U.S. needed to produce a complete vegetarian diet: 2

13. The Toxic Chemicals Argument

Vitamins, foods, make up, shampoo, shaving cream, deodorants, soap, etc that do not have the Vegan label on them, even though they cost the same - have 10-20 times more harmful compounds such as triethanolamine, petrolatum, triclosan, Aluminum, artificial colors, etc. All junk bought at mainstream non-Vegan non-health food stores is often loaded with carcinogenic and Alzheimer causing chemicals as explained athttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/C5koo4awzki. Aluminum hydroxide causes neuron death, most Vegan label products say "Fluoride Free, Aluminum Free, paraben Free, petroleum Glycols free,", etc. When you shop at a health food or vegan store for Vegan label products, you are always getting something far less harmful, because Vegan companies and founders are very health conscious and aware of things that FDA will ban 10-20 years before it happens, as vegans are the activists that often drive these toxic chemicals bans. And among Vegan products always look for those that have the least man made chemicals or if any man made, google it to make sure it's not something bad. When you buy Vegan label products, you move the planet towards World Peace and Compassion and save your health too. You no longer put that many toxins in your system. Triethanolamine, petrolatum for example are used in most non-Vegan skin care products, but they can cause skin irritation acne, allergy, etc. Triclosan can cause miscarriage, heart failure, thyroid problems, etc.

14. The Antibiotic Argument

Percentage of U.S. antibiotics fed to livestock: 55
Percentage of staphylococci infections resistant to penicillin in 1960: 13
Percentage resistant in 1988: 91
Response of European Economic Community to routine feeding of antibiotics to livestock: ban
Response of U.S. meat and pharmaceutical industries to routine feeding of antibiotics to livestock: full and complete support


Animals are fed 80% of antibiotics in America, and all kinds of hormones banned in the EU. These things don't go into lentils, grains, beans at all. Also, a cow eats 21 times its weight of vegetables before slaughter, meaning it ingests huge amounts of insecticides, pesticides, etc that are found in the cow feed (mostly GMO corn and soy). So, the meat accumulates all these toxins absent in non-GMO lentils, beans, etc.

15. The Pesticide Argument

Common belief: U.S. Department of Agriculture protects our health through meat inspection
Reality: fewer than 1 out of every 250,000 slaughtered animals is tested for toxic chemical residues
Percentage of U.S. mother's milk containing significant levels of DDT: 99
Percentage of U.S. vegetarian mother's milk containing significant levels of DDT: 8
Contamination of breast milk, due to chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides in animal products, found in meat-eating mothers vs. non-meat eating mothers: 35 times higher
Amount of Dieldrin ingested by the average breast-fed American infant: 9 times the permissible level

How to choose the fruits and veggies with least pesticideshttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/HYJP47EZhsj (a list of 50 veggies and fruits in order of pesticide contamination)

16. The Ethical Argument

Number of animals killed for meat per hour in the U.S.: 660,000
Occupation with highest turnover rate in U.S.: slaughterhouse worker
Occupation with highest rate of on-the-job-injury in U.S.: slaughterhouse worker

17. The Survival Argument

Athlete to win Ironman Triathlon more than twice: Dave Scott (6 time winner)
Food choice of Dave Scott: Vegetarian

18. The Fear-Stress Hormones Argument

When animals suffer for seconds/minutes during the sudden slaughter death, they release stress-fear hormones that age and sicken usgoo.gl/yxY4h. Fear hormones as well as astral vibrations that contaminate their flesh also prompt us into human-human conflict more often; we and animals share a lot of hormonal pathways, as neuroscience shows. Bill Gates is vegan and so are some CEOs (http://goo.gl/7laCI). Gandhi, Tesla, Edison, Einstein, Newton, DaVinci were vegetarian: goo.gl/IMJQJ.

19. The Amazon and other Key Forests Argument

Rainfall and preventing desertification is achieved thru a complex hydrologic cycle that involves forests. If we wipe out all forests, we are in big trouble, since forests generate 20-50% of the oxygen we breathe and ensure we get rain. Beef uses 160 times more land and 200 times more water per calorie than wheat, lentils, beans, potatoes do. Beef requires 28 times more land and 11 times more water than chicken and pork ► http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/jul/21/giving-up-beef-reduce-carbon-footprint-more-than-cars. If people go vegan or just without beef, you help save lots of water and forests.

20. ESP-Telepathy Argument

It has been noticed that telepathy and other ESP functions become enhanced when meat is given up ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/ihRkf82CLHL. See also the telepathy and biophotons connection ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/EkRbrCJDzaC. The MIT paper on biophotons in fresh fruits and veggies ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/ef6UA8yGtLk. See the biophoton of cooked versus raw cabbage at ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/hWU14s1C2My.

21. Space Exploration Argument

How can astronauts go in space and raise cattle on their spaceship to get to Alpha Centauri? lol. You got to be kidding me. The nice thing about veganism is that with vertical urban farms, people can get local food (fresh - picked up 2 hours before, thus very rich in biophotons) easily in any area and Earth can thus feed 50 billion vegans easily. Going off-planet is a lot easier too when there are more scientists/engineers working on space travel, terra forming planets, etc. Creating perfect weather, eliminating deaths from natural disasters, etc all these things require a lot of science.

22. The Longevity Argument

Bama centenarians, some over 110, live on a 100% VEGAN diethttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/du2jsEF9xbP. They take no vitamins. Vegetarians and vegans were shown to live 7-12 years longer than non-vegetarians. The Longest living people in North America are the vegetarian and vegan Adventists in Loma Linda, who reach 105-110 often. Here is a Loma Linda doctor (I talked to him) who did surgeries at 95: http://goo.gl/MQqn3, after decades of being vegan. Most centenarians eat a mostly VEGAN diethttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/dTLXiiTPdq4 ◄ has a long list of vegan or vegetarian centenarians. 108 year old American vegan Loreen Dinwiddiehttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/aH5TeGMXf9A (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkRN3ddd0P8 is a 33 second video of her 108th birthday)

2% of population is underweight, but a Georgia study found that within 244 people above 98 years old, 31% are underweight. The longest living people are thin usually. Vegans are the only group with a healthy average body weighthttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/PXVbaNSjNTJ. A 800 person Chinese study of people 90 years or older found that 44% were underweight and 7% were obesehttps://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24287207. A 2014 study at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26892574 found that among 255 people in Portugal with median age of 100 years, 25% were underweight, 13% were overweight. That's quite different, probably due to diet.

23. The Flu and other Diseases Argument

Without incredibly toxic and filthy factory farms, there will be no frequent epidemics of swine flu, bird flu, mad cow disease, etc. Here is a Vegan natural "flu shot" ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/WiZvEGdo1Qo

24. The Poop Argument

There is fecal matter in virtually all American beef according to Consumer Reports ► http://www.inquisitr.com/2368247/all-ground-beef-in-the-us-is-contaminated-with-fecal-matter-according-to-consumer-reports/. Also much of chicken meat has poop in it ► http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kathy-freston/chicken-contamination_b_1655170.html

25. The IQ Argument

It's been found in many studies that vegetarians and vegans have higher IQ on average than meat eaters, see more about raising a healthy vegan kid at https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/KP2EyDWNSbU. The American Pediatrics Association says vegan diet since infancy is fine as explained at the link. "Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” Einstein. On a similar note he stated, “Our task must be to [widen] our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” And on the day he became a vegetarian, Einstein wrote in his diary, “So I am living without fats, without meat, without fish, but am feeling quite well this way. It always seems to me that man was not born to be a carnivore.” For more quotes on giving up meat from world's most amazing people, see this post ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/CapnTqw8Xix

26. The Renal Acid Load Score Argument

Vegans have a much lower renal acid load score, which prevents a series of health issues. The United States Department of Agriculture has come up with the PRAL (Potential Renal Acid Load) Chart to help people prevent ingestion of acid forming foods, which then lead to chronic secretion of ammonia in the kidneys, and damage to kidneys and other organs. Most raw fruits and raw veggies are alkaline forming. All meats and grains are acid forming. Most legumes are alkaline forming. Foods can be categorized by the potential renal acid loads (PRALs). The best foods are those with negative PRALs, see the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) table here for each food (per 100 grams)http://www.alkalisinggreens.com/files/pdf/PRAL-List.pdf or you can search 8000 foods for the PRAL score at http://health-diet.us/alkaline-diet/ (human milk has negative PRAL, like alkaline forming foods do). Our renal acid load for overall diet should be negative according to many doctors and nutrition experts. :) Chronic acidosis can lead to lots of diseases, even more acne breakouts which are far more common in people ingesting foods with high PRAL. There are lots of papers published about PRAL, for example ► http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7797810. Alkaline diet benefits study ► http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3195546/. High acid forming or positive PRAL diets lead to calcium stones too ► http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11223695 and http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24002043. For more databases of foods and their content see http://foodhealth.info/. Vegans need B12 vitamin from a multivitamin or B12 fortified foods, even vegetarians need it and meat eaters after the age of 50, as the body cannot produce it well anymore. :) Costs 2$ a year to get B12 vitamin.

27. The Telomere Length Argument

After a low fat whole plant foods vegan diet (the Ornish diet), Nobel Prize winner Elizabeth Blackburn found that telomerase activity increased by 30% in 3 months (telomerase reportedly helps us live longer by repairing the end of our chromosomes) ► http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/06/ornish-diet-heart-health-us-news_n_1188205.html.

28. Eye health (more carotenoids and antioxidants, vegans have the best eye health as they eat the most fruits and veggies), bone health, Heart health (higher magnesium intake) and other reasons (57 reasons)http://www.nursingdegree.net/blog/19/57-health-benefits-of-going-vegan/. For more NIH Library studies showing the same thing, see https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/hSk3Y3RE5TJ. Eggs, the only non-vegan source of lutein (lutein protects the eye from blue light induced macular degeneration and blindness), have 120 times less lutein-zeaxanthin than Kale.

29. Heart Rate Argument ► Vegan heart rate is 20 beats lower, leading to less heart wear and longer life.

30. Water Argument

Vegans use 4 times less water than vegetarians and 13 times less than meat eatershttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/EFUbV8uNd8g. It's clear that veganism is the most compassionate choice. :)

31. The Kidney Stones Argument

Vegans have 2.5 times less kidney stones than meat eatershttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/RFQUQt4M3He. High protein diet brings risk of kidney stoneshttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1169452/ - BMJ. 2002 Aug 24; 325(7361): 408.

32. Evolutionary History, Enzyme-Digestion Systems Argument

We were mostly vegan for most of our evolutionary historyhttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/D4hCgiBRB4L.

33. Stress Hormone Argument, Effect on newborn birth weight, height, IQ

Meat Eaters have much higher cortisol, stress hormone and this has catastrophic effect on the height, weight, IQ of the kidshttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/ZwKDX2Gjqcs (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcPVkU0AseM shows many studies indicating meat leads to higher stress and cortisol, while https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/CKvcTre8AKP has 2400 lines about stress effects on born and unborn babies). Raising Vegan Infants and Kids is already common, with many youtube channels presenting what vegan kids eat - see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCokV-a9_to for example. There are many books that present vegan recipes for infants and kids, such as https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/akgyzQYrb2U. Below is presented some of the scientific evidence from American and British (and many other countries) Governmental agencies about the safety of vegan diets for kids:

1. UNITED STATES:

1.1 Position of the American Dietetic Associationhttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19562864 -- J Am Diet Assoc. 2009 Jul;109(7):1266-82 says "It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or VEGAN diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes."

1.2 The American Academy of Pediatrics approves of proper VEGAN diets for infants and kids of all ageshttp://pedsinreview.aappublications.org/content/25/5/174 -- Pediatrics in Review, May 2004, VOLUME 25 / ISSUE 5

1.3 Dr. Benjamin Spock, one of the most influential pediatricians of all time, recommended a vegan diet for all infants and people of all ages, in the 7th edition of "The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care", arguing cow milk causes Type 1 Diabetes in kids and many issues as I explained athttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/5VVB1tPWG1d (cow milk causes beta cell destruction - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3580116/)

2. BRITAIN:

National Health Service (the publicly funded healthcare system in UK)http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/pregnancy-and-baby/pages/vegetarian-vegan-children.aspx

34. The Omega 3 Fatty Acids Argument

Flax and Chia Seeds have 80 times more omega 3 than tilapia fish and without the mercury, PCBs, etc. There are endless sources of vegan omega 3 fatty acids (most veggies have some), without the heavy metals, mercury and PCBs in fish oilhttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/6j3ABsdNdXH. Also, please look at this post on oil rancidity - https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/KM8QNkWke35 - to understand why I do not recommend ever using oils (especially adding them before cooking), for best heart health. It's much healthier to eat unroasted raw coconuts, walnuts, chia seeds, flax seeds instead and maybe a DHA oil or algal oil pill.

35. The Fiber Argument - Vegans get more fiber than the rest

There are endless sources of fiber on a vegan or raw vegan diethttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/hnABXrGQwWy. Most veggies and fruits have 1 gram of fiber per 100 grams at least, some have 7 grams of fiber per 100 grams (avocados).

36. The Water Hydration Argument - Vegans get more hydrated as they eat more fruits and veggies

For the best hydration while on a raw vegan or vegan diet, please see this post for information on how important for health is to eat fruits and veggies and avoid a mostly processed or cooked vegan diethttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/i3EEHt8iCQp.

37. The Asthma Argument - Vegans have the least Asthma :)

Vegan Diet Cures Asthmahttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/4019393 -- J Asthma. 1985;22(1):45-55. "Thirty-five patients who had suffered from bronchial asthma for an average of 12 yr, all receiving long-term medication, 20 including cortisone, were subject to therapy with vegan food for 1 yr. In almost all cases, medication was withdrawn or drastically reduced. "

38. The Protein Argument - (Too much protein causes cancer, Alzheimer, rapid aging, acne, etc as explained at ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/XraJ9xYY2ih) - SEE 47+ VEGAN PROTEIN SOURCES THAT ARE MORE COMPLETE THAN MILK AND HAMBURGER BEEFhttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/AA2XSSyoGZ1.

39. The Hypertension argument - a third of humanity has hypertension and this leads to cognitive decline, more arterial plaque, premature death, and more chance to have stroke or heart attack

Vegans have lower blood pressure due to higher intake of potassium, omega 3 and less intake of sodium. Here is a list of the richest vegan sources of potassiumhttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/BNSMJZXJVct

A short history lesson: Reichstag fire. "Adolf Hitler, who had been sworn in as Chancellor of Germany on 30 January, urged President Paul von Hindenburg to pass an emergency decree to suspend civil liberties and pursue a 'ruthless confrontation' with the Communist Party of Germany. After passing the decree, the government instituted mass arrests of communists, including all of the Communist Party parliamentary delegates. With their bitter rival communists gone and their seats empty, the Nazi Party went from being a plurality party to the majority, thus enabling Hitler to consolidate his power.
