    I inherited a genetic predisposition for heart disease and dietary practices that had my father and grandfather die at the age of 52. I am now 58 years old. Through my participation with EarthSave Long Island/Healthy Planet, I learned about the health benefits of plant-based nutrition. I didn't get serious about following a whole food, plant-based diet until I was told I should prepare for an angiogram and stents in 2009. That was when my wife and I met with Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr, author of the book, "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease". I was so thrilled and excited by my health gains that I then registered into the course, "Plant-based Nutrition" that was created by T. Colin Campbell, author of "The China Study". I wanted to better understand what I had accomplished. I have begun giving talks, teaching courses and planning events so others can benefit from my healing journey.

    There is no way to say whether personal health or ahimsa is my main reason for eating as I do. For example I don't eat animal fat both for ahimsa and health, I don't think it is unhealthy to eat moderate amounts of fish, but I don't for reasons of ahimsa, and it doesn't hurt any animals to fry vegetables, but I don't eat fried vegetables for health reasons.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
