A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"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.


Health – 8 September 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

“Your choice of diet can influence your long term health prospects more than any other action you might take.” – Former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop

“In every respect, vegans appear to enjoy equal or better health in comparison to both vegetarians and non-vegetarians.” – T. Colin Campbell, PhD Professor of Nutrition, Cornell University (letter dated 3/29/98)

“The most energetic workers I have encountered in my world travels are the vegetarian miners of Chile.” – Charles Darwin

You would think that those who lack compassion for other animals and consume their body parts and secretions would at least be concerned about their own and their loved ones’ health enough to change their eating habits. Going vegan offers a win/win solution – for human health, for other animals, and for the environment.
