This is just great! I've been planning to go back to school for several years to be an RD. My husband and our son will be getting past some milestones this winter and so I think it will be feasible for me to start part time summer or fall 2006. I can't wait!

Mark-I wanted some clarification for something you stated in one of your first posts.

"However, the predominance of the research data does not yet support removing ALL animal protein from the diet, although "plant-based" diets are well-supported."

If you mean that there has been a lot of research on diets that include animal protein but little on vegan diets, this is true.

However, the breadth and depth of T.C. Campbell's China Study has to be considered. It has covered decades of health data and clearly and repeatedly shows that the ideal diet for humans is vegan. It is in fact the protein in animal foods that is more problematic than the saturated fat and cholesterol, which has gotten so much attention and research dollars. This focus on fat and cholesterol has given consumers lots of fat free dairy products and skinless chicken but still plenty of disease for dessert.

His new book also goes into how so much nutrition research is skewed towards animal based diets. His work shows that people reap more and more benefits as they consume less and less animal foods and there is no indication that there is some threshold or limit to this effect—meaning that vegan is the ideal for optimum human health.

Thanks for leading this board. I look forward to future discussions. This is an early Christmas present that I will get to "open" over and over again! Thank you so much!
