    I often hear vegans say that they are filled with energy or felt a burst of energy when they ate such and such vegetable/fruit.
    I just can't help wondering if that means they are lethargic and have no energy at all under normal circumstances.
    Please prove me wrong.
    I can't help but wonder if you aren't riddled with parasites and just don't know it ... please prove me wrong.

    ... playing these word games here isn't going to get anyone anywhere ... please stop.
    He has a good point. If someone is malnourished, the body would get quite a blast from any bit of missing nourishment.
    And does "malnourished" mean "vegan" to you? Because he implicitly implied that all vegans are malnourished then. It was an implication that he wanted to make -- it wasn't a question he was asking or a consideration being made, or a request for feedback. He came to this thread again, after already being warned by mods about his behavior here, to imply that all vegans are malnourished ... its childish.

    He doesn't have any point ... it was a valid question perhaps, but no question was ever asked, no info or opinion was ever requested and the initial post came off 100% as trolling. He wasn't interested in any insight or answer, else a question or rational discussion would have been had - this isn't really up for debate - it was obvious and reinforced by many of his other similar posts.

    He had some decent posts, but most really just made him look like the type of guy you wouldn't waste your time trying to have a conversation with.

    Clearly it was this I was being critical of, I'm pretty sure I was clear about what I was an was not criticizing.

    Had he framed his post properly, or, been actually genuinely trying to learn and understand and share, everything would have continued on as normal. That didn't happen.

    My 2 cents ...

    The Abuse within dairy continues, this time at Fair Oaks farm, USA. It's not "fair" and it's more of a large scale industrial operation than a "farm".

    Don't be under the illusion that this is the exception rather than the norm. Much of this is standard industry practice.

    If you are still consuming dairy products, please consider the cruelty you are subjecting mothers and children to because of your choices - that includes grass-fed etc too - after all, they all still end up in the slaughterhouse.

    This is 2019. We don't need to be still doing this.

    Be the change.

    I’m starting to reconsider my love for ingesting all forms of animal products. I remain tied in knots around whether killing animals to satisfy our taste preferences, but the way i get my animal food via mass production and what those animals endure doesn’t sit well with me anymore and I’d like to consider a step towards adopting some vegan habits and see where that takes me.

    What’s a really easy to follow internet based vegan for beginners resource that you would recommend. I’d like to start with two days a week for myself and my family.

    Apologies if this is posted already deep within this thread or elsewhere.

    Hi Matt. I usually direct people to Challenge22. Go there, sign up and you'll receive fabulous recipes and personal guidance from mentors and clinical dietitians.

    However, if you want to avoid Facebook which I can totally understand, I'll be happy to focus on your request next week when I have some free time. Just let me know in a PM or on this thread.

    Kangaroos are extraordinarily powerful creatures. I once encountered a great big buck who stood eye-to-eye with me and I am 5"7 1/2 (172cm). We eye-balled each other for a minute or two before I retreated respectfully. We had a quiet understanding between us.

    Kangaroo Fights Back Breaking Hunter's Jaw

    A hunter sustained serious facial injuries last Tuesday when the kangaroo he'd targeted 'fought back' - attacking the teenager who was in a moving vehicle.

    Joshua Hayden was in Kellerberrin, Western Australia, on one of the frequent hunting trips he took with his brother, when he tried to shoot some animals.

    'Knocked out'
    Hayden was leaning out of a car window, aiming his gun at two kangaroos, when a third - who had previously disappeared from view - 'charged his car'.

    He said: "It actually collided with the side of the car and smashed the front window.

    "Then it bounced back onto me and headbutted me straight in the jaw."

    Hayden was knocked out, and suffered a shattered jaw and cheekbone as a result of the attack. When he regained consciousness, he was confused, initially thinking it was his brother who'd hit him.
    'Going crazy'
    While Hayden says nothing like this has happened to him before, he claims he's observed increasing aggression from the animals he hunts.

    "The kangaroos are going crazy these days. As soon as they see a car they hop right up to it and give it right back."

    Doctors told Hayden they will have to wait until the swelling in his face goes down before they can operate.

    The condition of the kangaroo is unknown.

    88-year-old vegan climbs Kilimanjaro

    Colorado resident Fred Distelhorst may have set a world record as the oldest person to ever ascend one of the world’s highest peaks.

    This week, Colorado resident Fred Distelhorst ascended Mount Kilimanjaro—one of the world’s highest peaks, at 19,341 feet. The 88-year-old retired dentist credited his vegan diet for his physical fitness, stating, “I think I’m in pretty good shape even though I’m a little old guy.” Distelhorst climbed the mountain with his 22-year-old granddaughter Ellen Edgerton, who launched a fundraising campaign in conjunction with the climb to benefit orphanages for children with AIDS in Kenya. Distelhorst’s incredible climb is currently under the review by the Guinness World Records to determine if the plant-based athlete will receive the title of the oldest person to conquer Kilimanjaro. Last year, climber Kuntal Joisher became the first-known vegan to summit Mount Everest, accepted by most as the highest mountain in the world.

    Dr. Brooke Goldner author of Goodbye Lupis

    Shares her thoughts about Avocadoes.
    I've been telling you, don't throw away the avocado with the oils! The nutrients in the avocado promote healing. I have witnessed this in my clients who have reversed autoimmune diseases like Lupus and RA and others while eating lots of avocados, and I healed myself from Lupus while using a lot of guacamole dip to munch down pounds of raw broccoli!

    This recent study supports that the worst LDL cholesterol drops MORE with adding avocado to people's diet than taking the fats away and having more grains!

    I have never witnessed rapid healing from adding grains, but I have seen amazing results adding avocados.

    So don't be afraid of the avocado!

    I just received the following request from Total Liberation International so I am passing on the baton to like-minded individuals who recognize the cruelty subjected to some of the most beautiful creatures on the planet in the name of entertainment and want to do something about it:

    Quote At least 40 orcas have died at SeaWorld from causes such as severe trauma, intestinal gangrene, and chronic cardiovascular failure. The public has largely turned against SeaWorld—and the embattled company has finally agreed to end captive orca breeding as a result—but this does nothing to help the animals who are still suffering in its tiny prison tanks.

    Dozens of companies—including JetBlue, Southwest Airlines, STA Travel, Taco Bell, Mott's, Thomas Cook, Virgin Holidays and many others have severed ties with Seaworld citing the horrific animal abuse Seaworld is involved in as the reason for doing so. Yet AAA and some of its member clubs continue to promote this cruel ABUSE-ment park, which profits from keeping dolphins and orcas in concrete tanks that, to them, are the size of bathtubs.

    Many individual AAA clubs, including those in Alabama, Arizona, Minnesota, Texas, and Washington—have made the compassionate decision and stopped selling SeaWorld tickets which promote this animal abusive company.
    It's time the national organization followed suit.
