the issue with dairy farms
 
2 min video about the problem beef creates. Beef uses 150 times the water, 200 times the land, 160 times the emissions of legumes per protein calorie. Pork-chicken protein generate 20 times the emissions soy protein generates. We got too many cows, pigs and chicken. A 2500 COW DAIRY farm produces more fecal matter and sewage waste than a half a million city of humans in America. ALL DAIRY COWS ARE USED FOR MEAT AT THEIR 4-5 YEAR LIFESPAN END. If we all went vegan, we could easily feed 50 billion people on Earth. This would give us time and resources to develop space tech and terraform many planets, sending huge motherships with 10 million people each to different planets or tiny ships with 10000 people each. Science doesn't progress when we have so many chicken and cows and pigs. If instead of so many animals we get people fed using the same land, our science will progress far faster, as well the space colonization. More scientists means more progress. AI won't replace humans. Vegan horizontal farms will allow fresh local produce without chemicals, pesticides, etc... And it will enable us to free huge areas used by animal agriculture for human cities. Beef uses 28 times more land and 11 times more water than chicken or pork.

rosemary benefits
 
Rosemary has been used for centuries to boost memory, improve digestion, prevent brain aging and cognitive decline. It is used (like turmeric, sage and other spices) to prevent or manage Alzheimer and dementia. It is anticancer, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, antistroke, antioxidant, antiulcerogenic, anticlotting, antidiuretic. Incidentally, the only place in the world where people eat rosemary daily, Acciaroli in Italy, has about 45% of the people over 100 years old and 12% above 110, a world record. Could rosemary prevent free radical damage of the brain to such an extent that it protects all other organs too, since the brain health affects organ health? This discovery has led to hundreds of articles online about how rosemary helps these people live to 110 ► http://nypost.com/2016/04/12/if-you-want-to-live-forever-move-to-this-italian-town/. *Acciaroli (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acciaroli) is a 650 person village with 300 people over the age of 100 and 75 above 110. They eat the Mediterranean diet like tens of millions of much shorter lived people, except they also eat rosemary daily. This has led many to hypothesize that rosemary helps prevent brain damage/aging a lot which naturally prevents organ damage/aging too. http://www.herbco.com/ has rosemary powder for $2.70 a pound (cheaper than turmeric). There are other similar sites selling turmeric or rosemary powder. You can pour hot water over the powder or leaves and make instant tea and the tea is even used to treat digestive problems via enema. It's also used topically, on the face to fight acne, etc.

Rosemary prevents Alzheimer by inhibiting certain plaque building enzymes and by chelating metals that lead to plaque formation. Rosemary abietane-like phenolic diterpenes (C20H32 ► https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diterpene) also prevent the death of brain neuronshttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4749867/ (free full paper thanks to the US National Library of Medicine ► Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. 2016; 2016: 2680409.)

Rosemary protects the liverhttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12352220 (Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol. 2002 Sep;14(9):1001-6.)

Rosemary has 2% carnosic acid (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnosic_acid) - a phenolic diterpene - a compound with anti-tumor, anti-diabetic, antibacterial and neuroprotective properties.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Li_Ching-Yuen is wikipedia for a herbalist and Qi Gong "master" who reportedly lived 256 years according to the 1933 New York Times article.

There are many vegan Tai Chi or qi gong masters in China who are 110-115 years old.

:) the truth
 
The Top 15 Vegan Sources of Absorbable Calcium per 100 grams of liquid or solid food (the first 8 have more absorbable calcium than cow milk) are presented below.

Milligrams of total calcium Recommended Daily Amount is 1000-1200 for adults (kids 0-6 months 200 mg, 7-12 months 260 mg, 1-3 years 700 mg, 4-8 yrs 1000 mg, 9-18 yrs 1300). Milligrams of ABSORBABLE CALCIUM Daily Biological need for adults is 250-300. Absorbed levels are from 3 papers at the end and apply only for cooked drained veggies and greens (not the raw or steamed). Vitamins usually have 200 mg of Calcium, so if the pill is crushed and dissolved before ingesting for maximum absorption, it will help a lot (even kids who don't eat perhaps as many smoothies made from Calcium rich greens)

1. FIRM TOFU (all tofu has Calcium added - one cup OF TOFU gets you MORE THAN ALL CALCIUM YOU NEED IN 1 DAY) ► absorbed calcium 212 (total calcium 683)http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/4467/2. Soft Tofu has less.

2. Typical Fortified orange juice ► absorbed calcium 72 (total calcium 201)http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fruits-and-fruit-juices/9792/2

3. Turnip greens ► absorbed calcium 71 (total calcium 136)http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2704/2 (drink the water in which you steam them for 1 minute in a pressure cooker if you want absorbed calcium way higher than 71 per 100 grams - raw turnip total calcium is 190 ► http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2703/2)

4. Almonds ► absorbed calcium 56 (total calcium 264)http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/nut-and-seed-products/3085/2

5. Cooked Collard greens ► absorbed calcium 55 (total calcium 140) (there is no data on collard greens for absorbed calcium) ► http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2411/2 (raw collards total calcium is 145)

6. Raw Kale ► absorbed calcium 55 (total calcium 135)http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2461/2. As you can see, milk calcium is 32% absorbed, versus 41% for kale, as explained at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2321572 - Am J Clin Nutr. 1990 Apr;51(4):656-7.

Cooked and Drained Kale ► absorbed calcium 42 (total calcium 72 if water discarded)http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2462/2 (steamed absorbed calcium will be higher than raw kale if steaming (pressure cooker) water is also consumed)

7. Cooked and Drained Chinese cabbage ► absorbed calcium 50 (total calcium 93)
http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2704/2 (total calcium is 105 for raw, if steamed with pressure cooker and steaming water consumed, calcium is higher than 50)

8. Cooked and drained Mustard greens ► absorbed calcium 43 (total calcium 74)http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2490/2 (raw mustard greens total calcium is 103, so steamed mustard greens with water consumed will have more than 43 absorbed calcium)

9. Typical fortified Soymilk w/ calcium carbonate ► absorbed calcium 38 (total calcium 123) (plus many other vegan milks with added Calcium) ► http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/8010/2

Cow’s milk (human milk may be comparable, but not sure) (non-vegan, for comparison only) ► absorbed calcium 43 (total calcium 120).

10. Typical fortified Soymilk w/ tricalcium phosphate ► absorbed calcium 30 (total calcium 123)http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/8010/2

11. Cooked Cabbage ► absorbed calcium 30 (total calcium 48)http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2372/2

12. Cooked and Drained Broccoli ► absorbed calcium 21 (total calcium 40)http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2357/2 (raw broccoli total calcium is 47)

13. White beans ► absorbed calcium 15 (total calcium 90)http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/4319/2

14. Pinto beans ► absorbed calcium 8 (total calcium 46)

15. Spinach ► absorbed calcium 7 (total calcium 136)http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2627/2

References for the absorbable calcium numbers are:
