Wiser Advisor (Professor VegHead)

Friends and family are getting sick and dying since our world reached the tipping point of malaise, contamination and mismanagement.  Everyone must awake in 2012 to devote our minds and hearts to the healing of Earth~ WA

‘Yin and Yang are spiritual forces in Chinese philosophy… Meat eaters and vegetarians are the Yang.  By eating animal flesh or drinking their body fluids, one ingests their hormones.  Vegans eat no animal hormones.  Vegans are the Yin’~ Robert Cohen, Milk A-Z

‘Every nutrient we require – proteins, vitamins, minerals and others – can be obtained (or synthesized by the human body) from plant-based foods. Humans are not carnivorous by their anatomy, nor by their nature’~ Michael Klaper, MD

Think Abbouddit: What constitutes sustainability and how to certify adequate quantities of any sustainable product while keeping to strict standards? > Link

Did you know that a study involving 12,000 Seventh Day Adventist men showed that those who regularly drank soymilk instead of cow's milk had a 70% reduction in prostate cancer risk~ Don Robertson, EarthSave Baltimore

Clinical studies by Dean Ornish, MD, have shown that most patients who followed standard medical advice for coronary artery blockages got worse, while those who adopted a total vegetarian diet coupled with lifestyle changes showed improvement, including reversal of blocked arteries~ Don Robertson

‘There is no greater disrespect a doctor can show patients than that of withholding potentially lifesaving information based on the assumption that patients do not want to change their lifestyle’~ T. Colin Campbell PhD > www.TheChinaStudy.com

May the sun bring you energy by day, May the moon softly restore you by night, May the rain wash away your worries, May the breeze blow new strength into your being.  May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty and harmony all the days of your life~ Apache Blessing

Jews will move increasingly to vegetarianism out of their own deepening knowledge of what their tradition commands... A whole galaxy of central rabbinic and spiritual leaders...has been affirming vegetarianism as the ultimate meaning of Jewish moral teaching~ Rabbi Isaac ha-Levi Herzog > Jewish Vegetarianism »

All the Apostles abstained from both meat and wine, thus making them vegetarians and teetotalers.  Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Basil, Gregory of Nanziance, John Chrysostom, and Tertullian were all probably vegetarians, based on their writings~ Eusebius

About 70% of the world's population loses the ability to digest milk sugars upon weaning, in around the third year of life. It's a signal that our bodies no longer need breast milk of any kind~ Don Robertson

Gary Yourofsky (Testimonials- excerpts)

Mikaela Rigo~ I honestly feel like such a hypocrite because I'm a huge animal lover but I still eat meat, fish, milk, eggs, and cheese… Your speech gave me the push I needed and I have already spread your message to a lot of my friends

Jason Marshall~ I've been vegetarian since I was in high school… I've toyed with the idea of going vegan… I saw the YouTube video of your Georgia Tech lecture... I was instantly convinced

Lucia Coppola~ I am from Uruguay. I saw one of your conferences last night and I loved it. So, here I am, starting to be and think as a vegan

Gary’s Best Speech You Will Ever Hear- Georgia Tech, 7-8-10, translated into 18 languages, over 423,688 YouTube hits.  Whether viewed online or received in-person at hundreds of college classes it packs an awesome, vegan punch.  Video > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=es6U00LMmC4  Gary’s Lecture or Q & A Session in 18 Other Languages > http://www.adaptt.org/videos.html#

‘The standard diet of a meat-eater is blood, flesh, veins, muscles, tendons, cow secretions, hen periods and bee vomit. And once a year during a certain holiday in November, meat-eaters use the hollowed-out rectum of a dead bird as a pressure cooker for stuffing. And people think vegans are weird because we eat tofu?’~ Gary Yourofsky
