Re: Are you a vegan? If not, why not?

Well, those are pretty loaded options, aren't they, Compassionist? How about adding (in no particular order): * I have the alimentary canal and dentition of an omnivore. * I find that a balanced high-protein, low carb diet is easier to achieve if I eat animal products. * I care about environment-da...

It's good that you are doing most of the things. Sorry you are not getting enough sleep. I have been suffering from insomnia and nightmares for many years.

Re: Are you a vegan? If not, why not?

but Compo (and I sincerely wish I did not have to find fault with the thoughts of someone who is greatly morally superior to me), whyever would you bother to give me reasons to improve my lifestyle if you at the same time believe that I am programmed not to do so?

Freedom of Thought Report 2018

Freedom of Thought Report 2018 is disconcerting for anyone who supports human rights for all humans. It has been more than 70 years since the Human Rights were declared. Why haven't we managed to safeguard everyone's Human Rights? The world seem to be full of malevolent and ignorant people who don'...

Genetic testing

Please see https://www.scientificamerican.com/arti ... physiology Has anyone here had their genes analysed? Have you found it helpful? Is it worth the money spent?

Re: Are you a vegan? If not, why not?

None of those options applied to me, I felt. I've been a vegetarian for over half my 60+ years. There was a time when I would probably have liked to be a vegan but it always seemed like a lot of hard work and with the possibility of health issues if I wasn't careful, so I felt that being vegetarian...

Are you a vegan? If not, why not?

I was raised to be an omnivore. I first became a vegan on 1 August 2006 but I was unable to sustain it due to my ignorance. However, I became a vegan again in 2010 and again failed.
