I like what this fellow has to say for the most part but I wish doctors (including Neal Barnard) would stop automatically linking the words "fat" and "sick" all the time. Its possible to be what's considered overweight in our society and have no illness or disease whatsoever. At the same time, its possible to look slim and still have heart disease and other serious illness (for an example see the patient in CNN's "The Last Heart Attach" with Sanjay Gupta). Doctors and health care professionals should know better than to judge by appearance.
When the plant-based diet becomes all about health rather than about aesthetics we will all be better off.
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.

Jennifer, it's true many slender people who eat animal foods actualy have diseases brewing in their bodies. But when someone is overweight, that will put pressure on their joints, their heart, slow their blood pressure, etc. It is not at all about aesthetics, it IS about health. Excess weight will eventually cause health issues.
All I can say is WOW!! Dr Klaper is my kind of guy. This video is what everyone with a computer should watch. Awesome, awesome!!
