Dear VegSource Reader,
Today we are taking a break to look at a personal history.
During the US Civil War, my great-great-grandfather commanded a company of all-African American soldiers.
He wrote a short diary describing a number of experiences during the war, including one 3 day battle in which he lost half of the 653 men under his command.
One day two men rode into his camp...one was General Ulysses S. Grant and the other was President Abraham Lincoln. Read the description of what happened when these two men came to visit the black troops.
This is a fascinating glimpse into what the Civil War was like for my great-great-grandfather, and I think you will enjoy it:
Chicago Mayor Embraces Engine 2 Diet
In case you missed it, last week Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel publicly got behind plant-based eating, saying the ENGINE 2 DIET has improved his running times. Rahm also believes that Chicago's healthcare costs could be dramatically reduced -- if more people simply decide to go plant-strong.
Watch RIp Esselstyn of Engine 2 and Mayor Emanuel talk healthy eating:

Alzheimer's is Preventable -- Video from Neal Barnard MD
Everyone knows by now that fruits and vegetables promote health, and animal products promote disease. Just this month another in the thousands of studies -- this one showing that over the 20 year study period, of men who had prostate cancer, those who ate a lot of fruits and veggies were 40% less likely to have the aggressive, fatal form of prostate cancer than those who ate more animal products.
That's cancer. Now what about your brain?
Today we bring you a fascinating excerpt from a recent presentation by venerated researcher and PCRM president -- Neal Barnard MD.
Listen as Dr. Barnard tells what research clearly shows about the decline of the brain -- and most importantly, how you can dramatically reduce your chances of becoming an Alzheimer's statistic.
Do not miss this! Share it with everyone you know.

Fast Food -- SHOPPING SCHOOL DVD!
Do you have your copy of Jeff Novick's new DVD program -- Fast Food "SHOPPING SCHOOL?"
Here's what one longtime McDougaller just had to say about it:
My wife and I just finished Jeff Novick's latest DVD in the Fast Food series -- "Shopping School." The title does not do this justice. Imagine getting to spend nearly three hours with Jeff Novick in the supermarket, learning how he shops, and how he thinks. He becomes your personal guide, trainer, and mentor. He anticipates and answers questions, and provides helpful tips and heartfelt advice.
I learned a lot from this DVD, and I'm not exactly a newbie. One of my new year's resolutions is to lower my salt intake. This DVD arrived just in time to kick-start that effort! I didn't realize how "little mistakes" were adding up until now.
I've already made three specific diet improvements based upon his advice. Several more changes are in the works, including one which may save me the cost of the product back many times over!
If you want to take your McDougall Diet to the next level, I highly recommend this DVD!

Low Carb Guru is LIVID at us for calling him fat!
Last month we made a video for the Obese Low-Carb Guru of the Month. We noticed that many of the leading low-carb diet book authors -- are obese!
We featured a low-carber named Jimmy Moore in our most recent video. He lost weight for a while, wrote a book about low-carb . . . then gained the weight back.
Well Jimmy didn't like our video! He's hopping mad at us and said we got it all wrong!
So we made a new video to summarize the facts. It includes some shots of a few very well known vegan experts to make our point!
