Does it Pay to be Vegan?
By, Salvatore J. Tirrito M.D., F.A.C.C. (AKA The Raw Cardiologist)
First, let us go over some terminology. A vegetarian diet is one that excludes meat (poultry, pork, beef etc...). A vegan diet is one that, in addition to excluding meat, also excludes dairy (milk, cheese, & eggs). This seems to be the path that most people who identified themselves as vegetarian or vegan tend to follow. However, if you want to be technical about it, a true vegetarian in addition to not eating meat does not eat seafood and a true vegan, in addition to not eating meat and dairy does not eat seafood or honey (Bees are people too). For the purposes of this discussion we will define a vegetarian as someone who does not eat meat and a vegan as someone who does not eat meat or dairy.
The American Heart Association is the largest voluntary health organization working to prevent, treat and defeat heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases. These diseases, the Nation's No.1 and No.4 killers, claim more than 813,804 American lives a year. Thanks to all our walkers, donors and volunteers who have accepted the challenge to help fight heart disease and stroke. We cannot achieve our mission without each one of you!
