I watched the "Forks Over Knives" documentary (available for instant play on Netflix) today while I was working. It is just incredible to me the information that is available, but not widely known, here in the US. I HIGHLY recommend watching this.
On a personal note, my attempts at a vegan (or "plant based based" as FOK calls it) has been difficult. I have not been eating at home much and the co-habitant it on his "eat meat and pork rinds and nothing else diet" so I have struggled a bit. The meals I have made for myself have all been vegan but they only account for about half of my intake. I am beginning to see why successful vegans are all or nothing.
