I found this interview with Dr. Campbell to be very helpful. He answers my question near the end. Basically he says there is no science to show that 100% vegan is better than 95% vegan, but given the addiction most people have for fat and sugar it's easier to go 100%, allowing taste preferences to change and thus end the addiction. My interest stemmed from the standpoint of being a biologist.

Well, you've totally misinterpreted my interest. I wasn't asking to be convinced, just curious how he makes that leap. Unlike every other person on the internet, I have no interest in heated dietary debates. I avoid them. I have only one interest - interesting, thoughtful, unbiased discussion. Weird, I know, and apparently, impossible to find. I'll get around to reading the china study ev

I've not read the China Study. I'll get to it eventually but would be really interested if there was anyway you could quickly summarize how he makes that leap, if that's possible. I just started Whole again, where I left off, and it's a fascinating read. Kind of kicking myself for getting sidetracked, as now I'm feeling like I need to start at the beginning again.

I started reading this book and was enjoying it but got sidetracked and need to get back to it. One of the things that wasn't clear to me, and maybe I missed it or haven't gotten to it yet, but in the case of veganism vs. meat eating, he seems to make a leap of faith towards veganism. I'm not trying to play the devil's advocate here, just trying to understand his research. If memory serves

The bigger question for me is, if breatharianism (or rather, salivatarianism) is possible, why do it? What's the great benefit? Spiritual enlightenment? If it's the latter, I would hope to see some original, and inspirationally enlightening, thoughts rather than what we are seeing here: nothing more really than contributing to the usual hostile banter and laughing at the foolish little people

Most Ayurveda practitioners typically do not recommend raw foods, especially as a full-time endeavor, and is against it for some dosha types. Raw foods are considered beneficial for some types in the spring and summer, though it is still limited.

I know raw foodism and Ayurveda don't typically dance well together, but lately I've read a few sites that claim such a waltz is possible. Just wondering if anyone here incorporates that philosophy into their daily constitutional. Personally I'm a half-assed Ayurvedic groupie, appreciating its nature-based focus and its understanding of our various thrown-together compositions, and yet, no

Skimming the headlines, yours caught my eye because I accidentally skipped past a couple of crucial words. Thus, I thought you had eaten an American last night... I guess, for the most part, it's the same thing, since we are what we eat. Didn't realize you had cannibalistic tendencies. Next time, eat a fruitarian...although you'd still be wise to take a little B12, just in case...

Take the flatfish, with both eyes on the same side of the head. The larvae are "normal," and then one eye migrates to the other side in the adult form. Fossil records show a relative of the flatfish with one eye on top of the head, i.e., partially migrated, eventually leading to today's form. Seems a strange choice for a creator to create the normal fish, then decide, wait a minute,

Jalan, Hope you understand that I can respect you, I can respect your opinion on many subjects, but not all of your opinions. My own sister has become extremely religious. I have great respect for her in many ways, but she has closed her mind to anything that doesn't fall within her chosen religious belief system, to the point of becoming anti-science, and at times, downright dumb.

I wouldn't be shocked at all, which is why I used the word few. I doubt you'll ever see a huge media event on the subject given the belief systems in this country, as well as the nature of science. Is it huge news that experiments have been done with E. Coli proving evolution? That news isn't sexy enough, though some news agencies have probably mentioned it. This has nothing to do with op

I feel as if I was creatively evolved, and that everything I see around me has also evolved creatively. There is plenty of evidence for evolution - few scientists today think of it as a theory anymore since much of science today has, well, evolved directly from the "theory" of evolution. On the other hand, life is all about creativity: from procreation to meal making to architectural

Well, there's no end to the value of fruit, whether it be for educational, nutritional, or entertainment consumption... Hey B Who, I guess I'm not too picky about farmer's markets. I enjoy Green City Market, despite the crowds or all the baked goods or the tents emitting their aroma of cooked foods - seems like there's even more of that this year. I used to live within a few blocks, but now

No offense to anyone's belief system, but for me, I wonder why we muck things up with man-created philosophies, when a simple understanding of nature is all that's required? We didn't walk away from god or try to improve on god, in my view, we're simply doing what every creature on the planet is attempting, but failing, to do, i.e., take over the planet through unchecked growth.

They had always been a happy handsome couple, a lovely pair of oranges hanging out in the back of the fridge and never bothering a soul, so it came as quite a shock when she went bad, caught naked with the banana. He confronted her, of course, but to no avail, he could never satisfy her as well as the banana, lacking his skills and, um, tools. Neighbors said she had always been kind, a little o

Dang, the food industry is scum. I've struggled to get up to nearly 100% raw over the last few months, except for one lazy weakness: store bought hemp milk in my smoothies. I've slowly reduced its use, adding more water, but even this morning a half cup of hemp/carrageenan crap slithered through my gullet into the depths below, probably - I now realize - like a laboratory concocted parasitic sn

Jodi, that is double awesome. I love it. A "haiku" just for you: My papaya is round and fat, So I've been massaging her belly and back, But who knew, she'd prefer, her bottom, not her rack. Okay, so that's not even close to being a haiku, but it's the best I've got after so early rising from the sack.

My fruit doesn't like me. It does everything it can into fooling me of its ripeness. Except for bananas. I get along with bananas pretty well now. If only every other fruit would develop spots. The other day I bought some peaches. I was sure they were ready to become one with my inner being as they were a bit soft when I adopted them from the store, but as soon as I cut into one it was ob

No citrus, few tomatoes, and just started wheatgrass. Don't know about retracing. Hard to decide if I should plow ahead to see if I can get to the other side, or if I should ease off this detox.
