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.


The Healthiest Lifestyle – 27 September 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

“Even if meat eaters are spared the big killers that their lifestyle is associated with (heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer), their diet may still be robbing them of everyday good health. A meat diet is sure to lead to nagging conditions and ailments. A whole-foods, high-fiber vegan diet full of grains, fruits, vegetables and legumes, is just the ticket to reduce arthritis pain, ease irritable-bowel disorders, mitigate common back pain, relieve cold and allergy symptoms, and lower risk for gallstones, kidney stones, and heartburn. But perhaps best of all, the vegan life is one free of constipation!” – From “101 Reasons Why I’m a Vegetarian” by Pamela Rice 

So true! For over twenty years, my husband and I have actually experienced the positive changes brought about by a healthful, vegan lifestyle. And I might add that vegans actually smell better! For example, milk-drinkers who have lactose intolerance often have an unpleasant body odor, as well as bad breath. In one of my blogs I wrote about an acquaintance who had the tell-tale odor of a lactose intolerant milk-drinker. My husband tactfully explained this to him and, sure enough, his physician verified that this indeed was the cause: lactose intolerance.
