To keep with the informative theme I have going so far, I thought I'd discuss a major issue for those who have thought about veganism, Dairy. I've gotten many emails from readers stating they want to go vegan, but just can not live without cheese. They describe it almost as an addiction they have and cannot give up. The thing is, they're right when they say they are addicted to cheese and other dairy products because that is precisely what it is, addictive, disease causing, and fattening.
Breaking the dairy addiction
Since watching Forks over Knives, I have started eating a plant based diet and am feeling great. I haven't given up seafood or cheese though just yet. I never buy milk anymore since I learned the inhumane treatment of cows udders to obtain the milk. Here is an excellent post about the dairy addiction must of us have. You hear many people saying "I'm addicted to cheese" and there is a scientific reason for this. I suppose ideally I would have my own goats and make my own cheese like Heidi.
