    Have you had your cholesterol checked lately? If not - spring is a great time to start thinking about eating for health. Just had mine checked and I have a better number now than twenty years ago. Why? I stopped eating animals!

    As someone said recently, "I've never heard of mad broccoli disease". The benefits of vegetables, fruits and grain are enormous. Don't take my word for it. There is so much research out there now about healthier choices. Your heart will thank you.

      You are better to raise you're own animals and veggies for consumption. I will also support PETA. People Eating Tasty Animals. Diana let me ask one question, If my family history of gnawing on flesh, also paralells living into you're 80s and 90s, is it still OK with you to keep eating meat? Or is you're motive more misdirected causey?

      howboutthehotel granddaddy 1772-1855
      howboutthehotel granddaddy 1817-1900
      houboutthehotel granddaddy 1855-1943
      howboutthehotel granddaddy 1888-1968
      howboutthehotel granddaddy 1913-2009

      And this is the history of only my surname. The other sides are pretty good too.

      Bottom line, live life to the fullest(if you're genes will allow). Rethink that if you're people have problems early. Do you animals want to look attractive or like Richard Simmons. Diana's case does not hold water to me but there is no right or wrong here. Never has D even looked into Galloways. They only eat grass(like Diana's old hippy friends smoke). They evolved to fatten up on grass and are tasty also. Anyone intersested can try some at Holsingers in Broadway Va. And dry aged. mmmm.

    I've never heard of mad broccoli disease but I have heard of salmonella, e coli, botulism, et al.

    Beef, it's what's for dinner.
