A closer look at the vegan lifestyle and poor diets that trigger disease
By now, we all know that excessive amounts of highly-processed foods, sugars and drug-saturated animal products cause disease. Heart disease, cancer, diabetes plus a host of chronic degenerative disease are all caused by unhealthy food choices and exposure to other environmental toxins.
If we want to be healthy – we MUST shift our attention away from the factory-farmed, chemical-laced garbage produced by the major food manufacturers of the world. Commercially-produced food is all about profit, not health.
