    • Mayree- this is such an interesting topic because I’ve always wondered if it is beneficial to your health or just a rising trend. Its very eye opening to see that it helped someone who couldn’t have dairy. I’ll be interested in seeing what other research you come up with and what else you are able to find on the benefits of this diet.

    • Mayree,

      I am also looking at veganism and its growing popularity. I think I also read that article regarding the man who struggled with dairy. I am in agreement with you that a plant-based diet can be beneficial to some, however I did read an article about a mom who noticed her kids were malnourished as a result of being vegan. Extreme diets can be difficult for any small child. As with any diet, I think veganism can be beneficial to some and not to others. Good luck in the rest of your research!

    • Mayree,
      I really enjoyed reading this post. I found it very interesting. I always knew that veganism was good for you I just didn’t know it was better for you than a western style diet. I can’t wait to read more of your posts! Good luck on the rest of your research.

    • I was vegan for a while and I did a lot of research on the topic. I found the same information that being vegan can prevent some of the major killing diseases in the US. When I researched the opposing views of veganism a lot of controversy was around not getting enough protein and calcium on the diet. How do advocates of veganism defend this argument? Do you think that if more people were educated on veganism and the benefits it gives, that more people would go vegan?

    • I’m not positive if my last comment on this went through so here we are again. I think it would be interesting to try veganism for a while but I don’t think that I could stand it for too long, ice cream is too good. It would also be interesting to look at the cost of being a vegan and how much more they need to spend at the grocery store. It may also be cool to look at the effects on the earth with a vegan diet (no need to process meats and animals)!

    • Mayree,
      I think your topic is really interesting and a topic that will result in a good paper! I also think that the research you’ve done so far is really resourceful and to me makes your topic even more interesting.

    • Mayree I think this is a really interesting topic! Veganism is very popular right now but I don’t know that much about the health benefits. I’m curious to see what other research you find. Good job!

    • Mayree,
      I have always contemplated going vegan, but it would be so hard for me as I am accustomed to eating all of the animal products in my diet. I would love to reap the benefits of eating a vegan diet but the transition would have to be steady for me, and would take some time. I didn’t know western diets were linked with cancer and that being vegan decreases your risks and I can definitely see that being a motivational factor in a possible transition! Thank you for sharing your work and I hope to see you posting more about this topic!!

    • Marree,
      I find this very interesting. I am curious what is considered to be the “standard western style diet”. I don’t think I could ever be a vegan but I commend people for trying. Ive always wondered if going vegan was actually healthy or if it was just a trend.

    • I think the topic of veganism is very intriguing and I personally believe that being vegan can be beneficial your own health, to our environment, and it prevents factory farmed animals from being further abused and tortured. I think that if you had enough money to buy the large quantities of vegetables, fruits, nuts, etc, then being vegan would be a great diet. I think that our world is eating too many processed foods or too many steroid-pumped animals, and all of this is really not good for our bodies. Dairy causes a lot of inflammation in the stomach and red meat that is eaten too often has so many negatives to your health. So I do in fact agree that if you can do veganism efficiently, then it is a very healthy diet.

    • I thought this post was very interesting. I never would have thought of becoming vegan until I read this. However I do not think it would be very easy to make the switch.

    • I think that if we are able to join the army at the age of eighteen, as well as go to jail, we should be able to legally consume alcohol (or as in some countries, only beer and wine). I feel if we lower the age people would (hopefully) learn to safely limit drinking. This could also easily backfire, but as you stated, most college students under the age of 18 are illegal consuming alcohol anyways. I think the brain development argument should not be dismissed. I enjoyed reading this and would like to learn more on what our 2016 candidates feel, as well as statistics compared to other countries.

    • Very interesting topic. Do you think that greed can be society driven? Especially in very competitive societies like the US, where people will do anything to get more money and power. The more people have, do you think that causes people to get more greedy than people with less?

    • Dear Mayree:
      I am mesmerized by your post, “Controlling Greed,” because it is something that isn’t really talked about but it is such a big problem in our society now and days.
      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I feel like I used to be so greedy when I was young. My dad got a pretty good job and he started buying us so many new and nice stuff. I started to want more and more, when my dad quit his job I was really bummed out because I wouldn’t be getting the things I wanted anymore but now I see I have calmed down and i’m not like that anymore.

  • It never occurred to me that we don’t as a human race really care about our environment. We as a whole say how bad something is but don’t do anything to change it. I agree it is intimidating when you really
