My Conversion to a Vegetarian Diet

I have been exposed to information about the benefits of a vegetarian diet for years but have resisted it. One of my reasons was based on researchers stating one cannot get important amino acids with vegetables alone. I will be focusing more on researching that topic.

It appears that I have been deceived by research promoted by the huge influence of the beef and meats industry. Even the department of Agriculture shuns vegetarian diets.

I had read Dr. Hyman's book The Ultra Mind Solution a couple of years ago but could not get my head around the concept of a vegetarian diet. After recently viewing the movie Forks over Knives and other research I have collected I am now more converted to the benefits of a vegetarian diet. I am in the process of experimenting with various recipes.

This web site will begin to evaluate and compare research with a more favorable view towards a vegetarian diet.

This will be in part to help me resolve this issue. Although I have reached a more favorable acceptance of a vegetarian diet, I still have some resistance. I have been a meat and potatoes person and over the years have reduced the amount of red meat consumption, yet I still consumed a lot of animal products such as butter, dairy, fish and poultry.

2. Medical professionals resist anything new that does not provide an immediate profit. See How Dr. Semmelweis was severely persecuted by other doctors because he discovered washing hands before surgery reduced the spread of disease. The pharmaceutical and medical industries aggressively smear any thing that will reduce their profits. Herbs and vegetarian diets that make people healthy competes with their profits. More and more health professionals are writing books, articles, researching and producing movies in support of natural nutrition and they are being smeared by the pharmicutical and medical industries. Natural medicine and nutrition is one of the hottest topics on the internet today.
