Risks Eating Meat Meat Eat Want Still
Sorry for just getting back to this JB, others things have been a distraction.
First, before I say anything else, I would like to say I am glad a vegan diet has helped you so much. Being sick is never fun and if cutting out meat and dairy has been of benefit to you in that regard I am glad that it has worked well for you.
Myself, I have had a diet including meat and dairy for all my life and much to even my surprise at time I have very rarely been sick. That least, anything serious. The last time I vividly remember being sick was when I had a stomach flu and that was I believe when I was in high school so like ten years ago.
All through my growing up years, I had such a high immune system where everyone in the house could be sick and I was not. Where I actually got annoyed there wasn't days I didn't need to call in sick from school.
Sure, there was times I perhaps felt a bit under the weather or a bit tired during the day, and I am overweight, but all in all when it comes to sickness or illness it happens very infrequently and is mind enough to go away by the end of the day. My blood pressure has for as long as I can remember been in acceptable range and even my blood sugar stays steady even after having a pasta dinner.
All in all, my experience with health has been very different from yours and from what I have seen from others health is a consideration with many variables.
Still, that does not mean I have not wanted to adjust my diet. Whether in how much I consume or in what I eat and how often. Given my Aspergers I have been considering a non-gluten and non-casein diet as from what I have found wheat and dairy can exaggerate the symptoms.
I just don't see a reason to stop eating meat completely.
