Crap. I gave up meat for you hippy tree-huggers. Now I have to give up dairy too????  Does that include cheese, because I really love cheese.

Okay. I'm game. Let's do it.

Plenty of veggie cheese substitutes, some very nice, some very full of fat.

Maybe go halfway to goat's cheese - they must fart less than cows and can live on scrubland!

Check out The China Study and the research it discusses about how going meat and dairy free also happens to be very good for us in terms of our own health.

Makes a lot of sense to me for ethical, health, and environmental reasons.

I cut out cheese about 6 months ago, miss it, but feel much better (and 10 lbs lighter) for having given it up.

And about the 45:40 mark, the lecturer says, "So many people say 'I get what you are saying, but I can't give up cheese. I love cheese.'" And he has an answer for that too.

what goes in the mouth is insignificant  .......  what goes on     inside            is of greater importance
...i found there was no "i" anywhere.....
