If veganism were a magical cure-all, I'd probably do it.

For me, cure-all also means cured of old age.

I went vegetarian once, for a month. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't fun.

I've given up a lot of fried foods, and most desserts, etc. And that's been decent. But I console myself with bacon + steak.

Only problem is, those extra 20 years are the worst 20.

Right now I'm eating a mixing-bowl sized salad (shredded greens as the base, with sunflower seeds, dressing, some nuts, and either a bit of chicken or bacon) for lunch (first meal), then a large amount of a veggie (asparagus, broccoli, etc) for dinner (with steak/etc)

I think that's as close to vegan was I want to get.

I'd have to go 10 more years + current and future maladies. If the last 10 years were all miserable and pain, then pass.

Vegans have a 13% lower rate of heart disease, but a 20% higher rate of stroke.

Suck it vegans!

To be fair, that's 10 cases of heart disease per 3 cases of stroke. So it's still a net benefit of 7 for vegetarian/vegan group. They probably just need some B vitamins.

Not when you count their increased number of deaths by murder because they're such insufferable cunts.

Weird how the study avoided that topic.
