I'm wondering if this is all for real or what. You can walk into any natural foods section of a good supermarket and find alternatives to any dairy product you can name. Ice cream, milk, cheese, cream cheese, everything. It's like the Nike slogan, Just Do It. If you want to do something, you can.

I have found that many young people -- teens -- want to be veg but have no idea how to go about it and have a great deal of misinformation about nutrition. Fact is that if you eat a varied diet based on whole grains, beans, vegetables and fruit, and add a supplement of B-12, you should be far healthier than your meat-eating friends. I am thinking that those who say they got "sick" were eating junk food and not eating the whole foods that comprise a truly healthy diet. So do your homework, you can only gain knowledge if you go in search of it.

It's really not hard to be vegan once you make the transition, as I said before, the only issues are eating in restaurants or at friends' houses, if you eat at home you simply use alternatives. Much of the world lives on a largely veg diet (sadly, that is changing as third world countries get introduced to the American high fat high animal protein diet and their rates of disease goes up to match), it is a complete myth that you need animal products to be healthy. What you need to be healthy is a natural diet of whole plant foods, and cut out the junk and sugar.
