I have been a happy vegan since 1991 (Thank you Dr McDougall) along with two of my adult children. Three of my grandchildren have been vegan since birth and are now healthy, tall teenagers. I am so proud of them. Becoming vegan was the best decision of my life. In my age group, I am one of the few who does not have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes (or pre-diabetic) or any other diseases. Even my arthritic joints (from injury) give me little trouble. Try a plant based diet (not french fries LOL) for two weeks and you will feel 20 years younger. A true fountain of youth.

Maybe you could initiate it!
I am in the vegan/VLF for almost 4 years. My blood test is OK regarding nutrients. My plates are allways multi colors and I eat of everything that is plant based. My family was afraid I could be having lack of B12, etc. Here are the results:
Glucated hemoglobin (HbA1c)
5.1% Hb = otal
Reference values: 4.0 to 6.0% total Hb.
94 mg / dL
Reference values: = 70 to 99 g / dL
248 micromol / L
Reference Values: 205 to 285 micromol / L
113 mcg / dL
Reference Values: Male - 59 to 160 = cg / dL
9.6 mg / dL
Reference Values: Adults - = 8.4 to 10.2 g / dL
136 mEq / L
Reference Values: 136-145 = Eq / L
3.7 mEq / L
Reference Values: Adults - 3.5 to 5.3 mEq / L
2.0 mg / dL
Method: = olorimetrico
Reference Values: Above 20 years - from 1.6 to 2.6 = g / dL
82.4 ng / mL
Reference Values: Men - 24 to 336 = g / mL
Gamma glutamyl transpeptidase
14.0 U / L
Reference Values: Male - Up = 60.0 / L
> 20:00 ng / mL
Reference Values: Normal - Up = 3.56 g / mL
Vitamin B12 = / H1>
367 pg / mL
Reference Values: 180 to 914 = g / mL
107 mg / dL
Adults: Ideal = - Less than 200 mg / dL
52 mg / dL
Adults: Ideal = - Less than 150 mg / dL
CHOLESTEROL - HDL
54 mg / dL
Above 19 years - greater than or equal to 40 mg / dL
Cholesterol - LDL 35 mg / dL
Reference Values: Ideal -Inferior = 100 mg / dL
Cholesterol - VLDL
10 mg / dL
Reference Values: Ideal - = Less than 0 mg / dL
Bordering - 30 to 40 mg / dL
CHOLESTEROL - NON HDL
45 mg / dL
Recommended value for non-HDL cholesterol in ancient = high risk and
= very high for CAD:
High risk: Less than 130 = g / dL
With very high risk: Less than 100 mg / dL
4.0 MCU / mL
Values = Reference:
For individuals with glucose until = 99 g / dL:
Body Mass Index up to 25: 2 to 13 = Cu / ml
Body Mass Index between 25 and 30: 2 to 19 = Cu / ml
Body Mass Index above 30: 2 to 23 = Cu / ml
C-reactive protein ultrasensitive
0.08 mg / dL
= For Testing of inflammatory / infectious diseases: Less than = 0.50 g / dL
For cardiovascular risk assessment: Less than = 0.30 g / dL
Actually Deborah I have been talking with some folks about that idea for several months. I hope one day it will happen!
Thanks for all these inspiring stories. Please bring more to this website! There is no vegan community where I live (in beef country Alberta) and its nice to connect and hear others' stories.
