LOL. I've been vegetarian and still eat a lot of vegetarian and vegan meals, so I'm not anti, but my mom is 90 and her doctors keep telling her to eat more meat. She is on dialysis and her protein levels are always too low. She has eggs every day for breakfast trying to get the protein up.

So your statement may be true for some, but it's not a one-size-fits-all solution.

Me, either. Why waste time and emotions dwelling on the subject?

Planned enough to not leave a mess for anyone, hopefully. That's about it. No regrets.

Our friends who have died suddenly or unexpectedly could have possible avoided dying if they had only visited a doctor in the last few years and had a check up.

On other retirement forum, thereís some nutcase(yes really) who dared to suggest a vegetarian diet would help you with Alzheimerís. Goodness such a crock suggestion. My brotherís FIL was a vegetarian and he died with some brain problem, it could be lewd disease. If anything, the brain is all fat, eating more fat might help. Heck, thatís my theory and I have no proof at all, but I keep eating bacon just in case.

Sorry, that still doesn't beat the guy on City-Data who insisted that apple cider vinegar can prevent menopause.

If only, if only... they didn't, they died. It happened, for them, the way it was supposed to. Done.
