    Interesting read!
    Ross and Hugo Turner, a pair of identical twins known as "the adventure guinea pigs," decided to compare a vegan and omnivorous diet and found some striking differences in the results.
    What are your thoughts?
    Personally, I would say I'm 65% Vegan & 35% Meat- omnivorous/carnivore
    The vegan diet also caused big changes in the gut microbiome......
    The changes potentially improved Hugo's resilience to some forms of chronic illness, according to the analysis, lowering his risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes. That supports previous research suggesting plant-based diets could reduce the risk of those conditions by improving the microbiome.

    If you have tried this yourself you will know that it can takes years to see the results of diet change. I’ve know several vegans that have crashed and burned and I used to follow Vegan Mom’s blog who ended up seriously ill after 15 or so years. I suffer from a neurological problem that was probably caused by long term Vitamin B deficiency from my vegetarian days. Your body will cannibalize.itself trying to stay alive !

    ......and that's why I will never "B" 100% vegan-vegetarian.
    If I want meat, I will get it!
    I do love Salmon, Wild Bison, free range chicken and other
    organic meats, vegetables and tropical fruits ALL in moderation and
    a mix!
    Stay well my friends.

    I've been vegan 20 years and work as a university professor. Being vegan doesnt give you brain diseases, lol.

    Sure, oreos and potato chips are vegan so you can eat a vegan diet and still eat garbage. But if you eat a balanced diet (vegan or not) none of these arguements about nutrient deficiency hold water. People are still talking about veganism like it's a new thing in the west, but Buddhists and Jains have been around forever--they arent all walking corpses either.
