I totally agree. I was very upset with Susan G. Komen for teaming up with Kentucky Fried Chicken. I compared it to the American Cancer Society teaming up with Marlboro.

I whole heartedly agree. It's not only cancer but also other diseases including food allergies that can cause inflamation. We switched to a vegan diet several years ago because my wife was suffering from (what the doctors thought was) psyoriatic arthritis and psoriasis. She is in her early 40's and couldn't get out of bed becasue the pain was so bad. She was put on expensive medications and was told she would always have some degree of pain and will be on medications the rest of her life. That wasn't acceptable so we decided to go vegan because the medications seemed to cause other problems like high blood pressure, and within a month she had absolutely no pain and was off all her medications. We recently discovered, through keeping a food journal, that the psoriasis was actually a gluten allergy. We are now gluten-free vegan and her psoriasis is almost all cleared up - with no medication! We have slowly become healthy food advocates and can't seem to tell people enough the importance of healthy, whole foods!

Spot on Film Gene! Educate thru Media! Sending Vegan hugs and kisses!

Dear Gene, I am following you on your "just Eats" Tour. I am amazed at your energy level! How do you do it? Keep up the great work and thank you for restoring my faith in the human race! xoxo

Denise's story sounds really positive. A great example of veganism and healthy eating. I know I am preaching to the converted somewhat, but isn't it obvious that natural food is going to improve our health. However, today we are able to use technology to help us use the right foods. What I mean is; Grandma knew that onion could be used as a medicine, but she didn't know why. We can know analyse foods to our greater advantage and hit the spot so-to-speak. That's exiting.
