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.


Why This Epidemic of Degenerative Diseases? – 12 October 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

With all the concerned talk about the alarming increase in obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease and strokes, and the resulting rise in “health costs,” isn’t it interesting that the media – including their “medical experts” – avoid telling the truth or using the “V” word, as in “vegetarian” or, better yet, “vegan,” as a way of preventing those diseases?

After all, what can you expect as long as commercials for fast food, cheese, eggs – ad nauseam – pay their salaries?

The following two quotations come closer to telling the truth:

“The meat-laden, Western style diet, rather than leading us to an age of prosperity and health, has contributed to an epidemic of degenerative diseases. The nations who consume the most meats suffer the highest rates of death from heart attacks, strokes, cancer and diabetes.”
– Michael A. Klaper, M.D.
American author and international lecturer

“He will be regarded as a benefactor of his race who shall teach man to confine himself to a more innocent and wholesome diet.”
– Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
American author, poet and philosopher

In other words: Go Vegan!
