  1. Compare a healthy omnivorous diet with a healthy vegan diet and I do not believe this would be true.

     

    How does one decide what a "healthy" omnivorous diet is? With the facts on the health risks and toxins related to meat and dairy I can hardly see calling any omnivorous diet "healthy" for comparisons sake... only closer to vegan, and therefore there is no comparison due.

  2. In a study of 20,000 British adults, researchers from the University of Cambridge and the Medical Research Council determined that people who exercise regularly, eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily, drink moderately and quit smoking live 14 years longer than their less virtuous counterparts.

     

    After adjusting for age and other covariates that may impact longevity, the researchers determined that smoking was associated with the greatest mortality risk reduction, with those who ditched the cigarettes logging an 80% overall improvement in health. Regular fruit and vegetable consumption, meanwhile, had the second largest effect on health, followed by moderate drinking and regular exercise, which procured similar benefits.

     

    Commenting on the results, the researchers note that they “may provide further support for the idea that even small differences in lifestyle may make a big difference to health in the population and encourage behavior change.”

     

    Doing all four? Then it’s probably about time you reserve the best rocker at the retirement home!

  3. The world is never going to be vegan

    I disagree. Although I am admittedly idealistic, so much so that to me idealism is realism And idealistically and realistically in the future I can't see it any other way.

     

    each step like this should be appreciated.

     

    I agree. Appreciated yes, but accepted as a final answer, no. Appreciation brings about positive results faster than resistance to the small steps. I think.

  5. A Froggy Bloggy quote of the day, this just came in my inspirational quote of the day email.... I find it appropriate after this weeks adventures! Hiking, whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, and in a couple days I am climbing yet another peak!!

  6. "do we have anything to eat on the way to getting something to eat?"

     

    "I know you know and I'm not supposed to know you know but I can't lie so don't tell him I told you I know that you know."

     

    After a search for a parkmap, then a search for an adventure park attendant to direct us, then a search for a disc golf course map then waiting in line for the chair lift, then a slow ride up the mountain, getting off at the wrong stop and chaotically getting put back on the lift to the top, an ordeal spanning a good 30 minutes.. Lift attendant yells up to us:

    "Did you get your discs? They're at the bottom!" We had to ride the lift back down... Our park passes were expired by the time we reached the bottom to retrieve the discs.

     

    "Who are you? How do I know you? What are you doing here?"

     

    "You can ride your bike but you have to stand the whole time"
