The next time someone tries to tell you that a vegan diet isn’t healthy, just mention Mary Bukowiec to them. Who is she? Ms. Bukowiec is a breast cancer survivor who credits her change to a vegan diet with the complete disappearance of her cancer. Following an earlier diagnosis, she had followed the conventional course of treatment. But when the cancer reappeared, she decided that a different approach was called for. Michigan’s Morning Sun reports:
“I had to change my mind about that,” Bukowiec said. “I started reading scientific journals, and literature on diet and lifestyle. And the effects of a plant based diet and how it can help you from getting cancer.” She said that everything she read about alternative treatments hinted to plant based diets.
Of course, eating meat, dairy products, and other food from dead, tortured animals is clearly linked to a higher risk of cancer as well as heart disease, strokes, diabetes, and lots of other things you don’t want to get in the first place. So if you haven’t done the vegan thing yet, it’s time to get with it already—it could even keep you from developing a certain condition (wink, wink) that isn’t life-threatening but might ruin a guy’s social life!
