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.

By Mary T. Hoffman

“People are the only animals that drink the milk of the mother of another species. All other animals stop drinking milk altogether after weaning. It is unnatural for a dog to nurse from a giraffe; a child drinking the milk of a mother cow is just as strange. It is not surprising that problems ensue from this inherently unnatural act.”
– Michael A. Klaper, M.D., American author and international lecturer (from: Pregnancy, Children, and the Vegan Diet)

“Every nutrient we require – proteins, vitamins, minerals and others – can be obtained (or synthesized by the human body) from plant-based foods.”
– Michael A. Klaper, M.D., American author and international lecturer (from: Incredibly Delicious, by Gentle World, page 14)
