Human Benefits from Animal Rights – 1 Jun 2006

Frank and I speak from years of experience enjoying excellent health as a direct result from “going vegan.” Before learning and changing our eating habits, we suffered for years from health problems that we had no idea stemmed from the animal products we were eating. And our doctors never asked us about our diets! They and we never made the connection that our health problems were the direct result of the animal products we were consuming!

For example, for years I not only suffered with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), but also with the urinary bladder condition known as Interstitial Cystitis (IC). If any of my readers have had these conditions, you know the misery they cause. You read and hear about “searching for cures” and they hint about “autoimmune disease” as a cause. Why is it so difficult to admit that taking into our bodies foreign proteins from animal products may cause this “autoimmune disease,” and that an easy way to find out is to try going vegan for a period of time?

Frank went vegan (no animal products) in 1987. A year later, after a stubborn sore throat would not respond to my doctor’s prescribed medications, Frank convinced me to drop dairy products (I had stopped eating all other animal products). As I’ve mentioned before in a Blog, if we had it to do over again, all dairy products would be the first to go!

The stubbornness of people clinging to harmful notions and avoiding the obvious is unbelievable! It seems as though many people would rather spend lots of money unnecessarily and keep suffering so that they can feel accepted by their peers, rather than to think and act in their own best interest, which also happens to coincide with the best interest of their fellow creatures. To me, this hardhearted attitude is proof that there is indeed a Satan – the deceiver and father of lies, as the Bible says. Satan and his demons must be laughing up a storm at the stupidity of human beings!

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that our becoming born again believers in the Lord Jesus Christ happened before our change in eating habits. We thank God that, through His Holy Spirit, He gave us the compassion and empathy to feel for His other creatures. In turn, our health improved, and we received many other blessings.

Continued tomorrow.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
