I find that copious quantities of tequila and green chile is very effective. I might feel like crap for a couple of days after the treatment, but then I feel great!

As if none of us have ever come back with a cool, quasi-epic story instead of being victim to tragic rockfall, a fatal stumble, a heart attack, an embolism, a lightning strike, a bear attack, collapsing cornice, some psycho with an axe, a falling tree, carbon monoxide, even falling asleep at the wheel getting to a mountain. If you can't accept the fact that sometimes "s**t happens", then you live with the illusion that your epic genius and profound wilderness intelligence has put you in total and complete control of yourself, your partners, and the mountain. How mystified you'll be when "s**t happens" to you! - FM

Most of the USA's fascination with the colon and poop come from Kellogg.

I don't know of another country that is so preoccupied with either.

If you believe that then apparently our nations lack of sexual appetite must come from his as well... :lol:

"Some of his work on diet was influenced by his belief that a plain and healthy diet, with only two meals a day, among other things, would reduce sexual feelings. Those experiencing temptation were to avoid stimulating food and drinks, and eat very little meat, if any."

So am I to understand that fruits, vegetables, grains, etc. do not rot in my colon at 98.6 degrees for a day or two?

Not anti vegan, I've seen it do a lot of good for a lot of people, just anti illogical argument.

Everyone I know who is vegan has more health problems (bones, skin, hair, energy, digestion, etc), than people who eat like s**t...

What's everyone's take on vegan?

(this should keep the thread rolling for another couple pages... :mrgreen: )

If we weren’t meant to eat animals, why did they make them out of meat?!
The best way to make greens taste good, is to feed them to a cow first!

If somebody is into the pity of it all about killing animals, there’s no arguing with that. (A lot of weed eaters get around to that after telling you about health benefits.) But if you want what we have adapted to, we have been eating animals for many millennia. It’s the modern levels of processing along with economics that make crap food cheaper than real food that are the problem.

I went vegan back in 2007 for about 2 years and honestly it was the worst two years I have ever had healthwise. I can't say it was necessarily the vegan diet (maybe I just had a run of bad luck) but since going back to my normal diet I have not really been sick since. Maybe it was the fact that during those 2 years I cut out alcohol as well.....That can make anyone's body rebel..... :-D

Considering gluten, dairy and beans (soy) are digestive irritants, I would have to say those foods rot in my gut! If I want to feel like crap, and be sick for weeks, all I have to do is eat these foods! It's like a bad cleanse...

You tell me. Would you rather eat a t-bone that's been sitting in a most environment at 98.6F for 48 hours or an apple? Yes, the apple would move through your digestive tract faster(fiber). I agree, it's a moot point because it should be obvious what kind of lifestyle a person should have to avoid needing a reason for a body cleanse in the first place, vegan or not.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't 'rotting' the bacteria starting to break down the meat? As in, what the bacteria in our guts have evolved to do?

I have a degree in History and Education, so I'm pretty that's enough to make me an authoritative figure in this subject.

I suggest this treatment plan - http://www.hulu.com/watch/10304. Use with caution.

PS Why is this in the "Gear, Climbing Prep, and Safety" forum section??

I also see we're lacking a PETA reference.
