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 Ideal Diet – 25 April 2009
By Mary T. Hoffman

This is what T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. says about the ideal diet:

“In the next ten years, one of the things you’re bound to hear is that animal protein is one of the most toxic nutrients of all that can be considered.”

“Quite simply, the more you substitute plant foods for animal foods, the healthier you are likely to be. I now consider veganism to be the ideal diet. A vegan diet – particularly one that is low in fat – will substantially reduce disease risks. Plus, we’ve seen no disadvantages from veganism.”

– T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. Nutritional biochemist, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. Director: Cornell-China-Oxford Project on Nutrition, Health and Environment 1983-1990

My husband Frank and I have been vegan for over twenty years, and we enjoy excellent health and a clear conscience. Veganism is good for humans, non-humans, and the environment. It makes sense to “Go Vegan”!
