If you’re serious about becoming healthy, preventing diseases of both the body and the mind, reducing pain, and living a long life, I want to encourage you to consider reducing meat consumption for your health and happiness.

As a cancer and depression survivor, I take my healthy very seriously. And one of the things I do to protect my health is I don’t eat meat.

Meat has long been associated with all kinds of health problems from heart disease, diabetes, cancer (especially colon cancer), obesity, impotence, dementia, and so much more. It also affects our moods causing lethargy to depression. Studies consistently show people who live a healthy and long life eat little to no meat. Something to think about.
