The Average Vegan Weighs 23 Lbs Less Than The Average Nonvegetarian

Newspaper health columnist promoting toxic fattening food

Serena Williams 5 Time Winner of US Open

Dr Keith Roach has a syndicated column in which he gives his own opinions on health care questions, besides helping ax millions of trees killed for his column.

This week he replied to a question on cholesterol and diet, falsely stating in effect that vegetarians do not weigh less than nonvegetarians. Roach also ignored the polysaturated nature of animal fat which clogs the arteries of the brain, heart, and arteries, causing heart attacks and strokes.

Countless studies prove otherwise, including one by Mervyn Hardinge, MD at Harvard before he
left the animal flesh invested university. Hardinge did isocaloric studies. Three control groups, nonvegetarian, vegetarian and vegan, received the same number of calories daily. After three months, the nonvegetarians weighed 11 pounds more than the dairy vegetarians and 23 pounds more than the vegans.

Vegetarians and vegans have more fiber, natural bulk, in their diets. It is nonvegetarians in heavy meateating countries such as the US, Canada, Argentina, Australia who have the highest rates of intestinal cancer in the world.

If you want truth, ask your newspaper to discontinue Roach.

For reliable information, there are thousands of vegan physicians with no financial ax to grind
at, Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine.

The Skagit Valley Herald reports that police spokeswoman Shannon Haigh says the cow apparently escaped from a farm outside the city limits. It was first reported in a Wal-Mart parking lot last Friday.

Haigh says the cow slipped past city police and Skagit County sheriff's deputies who tried to keep it out of the street and away from a nearby wedding. When officers tried to catch it a few blocks away, Haigh says it charged an officer, tossing him into the air. He was sore, but not seriously hurt. The cow escaped again by jumping on the hood of a patrol car, trotting across it and running off.

Haigh says police and the cow's owner finally agreed it might need to be killed to prevent further injury or damage. An officer shot the animal
