Hello from Portland

#1 Postby davidtarrfoster » Tue May 23, 2006 2:40 pm

This is my first question on the forum, and I hope Robert can answer it.

Here's a question: Hair is made of protein, and vegans don't get enough protein because they don't eat meat, so how do vegans grow hair--or do you just go bald shortly after going vegan.

Oh that's right David!!!..............I did have a pretty sweet stache a while back. And as we discussed yesterday, Vegans DO get enough protein. It is the fact that 2/3 of America or more (nearly 200,000 in the US) get too much animal protein and it causes them all kinds of problems and costs them a lot of money to fix those problems over their lifetime.

David is the guy you met at the soccer field last night :)

He's a good friend of mine and he wanted to join our group to learn more about the vegan lifestyle, especially as an athlete.

Oh THAT David!

Sorry...

being in the presence of such a great as "that guy with the olives on his plate during that one part of the potluck scene on the dvd - you know, the one who..." must have made me forgetful... :wink:

Just teasing!

It was cool to meet you yesterday David and it's good to see you here on the forums- I hope we'll be seeing you around again soon! And I am going to keep my eyes open for your appearance on Vegan Fitness - Built Naturally. :D

WELCOME :wav:
I have been VEGAN for over 20 years, my hair is down to the middle of my back. EVERY YEAR I cut my hair down to 1" with in that year it grows back to the middle of my back. I have done this my whole life, my hair has never grown as fast as it has since becoming vegan. The whole meat protein is FALSE !!! Meat protein is harder to digest (hard nasty stools) and veggie protein is more abundunt and easier to digest (fiber)
Always me ...d

My husband & I have both noticed that our hair grows faster & thicker since taking up inversion. We have a nifty inversion table. :)

i was a voracious carnivore for nearly my entire life. steaks, burgers, chicken, pork, fish, you name it. and i went bald at 25. there is no correlation.

I've started to go bald too. Would it help prevent balding if I was a vegan?
