This new study sort of gets you thinking that the folks once considered “extremists” (like vegans) actually prove to be leaders dragging us all in a good direction. I do not practice a vegan lifestyle, but I learn much about good eating through their literature. Likewise, I do not homeschool our children, but I used to belong to a homeschooling parents’ book group (Mr. Chattering found this quite disturbing), and boy, did I gather good learning resources.
Anyway, the article I’ve linked to above says that “people who ate a low-fat vegan diet, cutting out all meat and dairy, lowered their blood sugar more and lost more weight than people on a standard American Diabetes Association diet.”
Not all that surprising. But still a big “wow” in terms of future medical implications.
