Both my wife and I are both ethical Vegans, We both find in disturbing how few people within the atheist community don't see the dietary indoctrination that surrounds us in the same way that they do Religious dogma. In some ways the two are often very related.....
Interesting website for some stats on vegans in the uk
I will check them both out later tonight.....
Interesting article on the relationship between diet and mental health
Check the CSIRO they are a far more reputable sight and deffinately not biased toward Vegans. They have nothing but good things to say about a Supplemented Vegan Diet. Any of these negative statistics are only created from Vegans like yourself..People Who do not apply modern nutritional information...by the way there are also places for recovering meat eaters........They are called "HOSPITALS" You may have seen them,,,,
sounds good - a died based on science - the total well being diet... I'll give it a go.
there's abetter book called the healthy heart diet which is the latest edition CSIRO diet and is RED in colour
I'm having a lot of trouble with the links on the site not working - I've put in a complaint.
I did a search of the site for vegan - and it came back with no results.
It did come up with links for vegetarian....
I had a read of the website and I've bought the total well being book..... so I'm looking forward to having a science based diet... thanks :)
another good reference is the australian institute of sport
another interesting website with advice on what to eat when suffering from mental ill health.
It doesn't mention to go vegan....
That is a silly point of argument.......most doctors don't mention a lot of things because they know public acceptance is low. Just like how Obama does not say he is an atheist or Julia guillard says she is against gay marriage.
if vegans in the uk are at 0.3% then I would expect that at the most vegan doctors would be at about the same 0.3 % or less - in which case I would also suspect that most doctors eat meat of some sort - and would therefore suggest to their patients to eat a 'normal' diet, that includes meat.
