Thread Name: BS: Veganism
Subject: RE: BS: Veganism
Ames, Iowa has many international students, sent by their countries to study agriculture. A friend of mine met one of them, a beautiful young woman from India whose back was hurting her. She went to a doctor and he said he was familiar with her problem. She had been a vegetarian all her life, and her nervous system, which needs B vitamins, has not been getting them. Finally, her spinal chord and major nerves could not take it anymore.

I never learned how this all turned out, but when I was visiting, every suggestion for something to eat that would solve this problem was met with a shrug and a pathetic whimper. This young lady just could not turn her back on familial indoctrination and take care of her own body.
One of my science magazines had an article a few months ago which reported that vegans get more hip fractures than other people.
What's wrong with eggs? They are just food packages, they were never living creatures.
