We began this archive as a means of assisting our visitors in answering many of their health and diet questions, and in encouraging them to take a pro-active part in their own health.  We believe the articles and information contained herein are true, but are not presenting them as advice.  We, personally, have found that a whole food vegan diet has helped our own health, and simply wish to share with others the things we have found.   Each of us must make our own decisions, for it's our own body.  If you have a health problem, see your own physician.

Comments and Facts

  • The only two fatty acids that are truly essential for everyone are: linoleic acid (18:2, n−6), an omega-6 fatty acid; and alpha-linolenic acid (18:3, n−3), an omega-3 fatty acid, both of which are found in flax seed. The human body appears to be able to make any other necessary fatty acids from other fatty acids within the body. ~ George Eisman, MA, MS, RD
