I became vegan in the process of reversing my heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and cholesterol. It has been great, but it has definitely affected our social life. So much of social life seems to revolve around unhealthy rituals. It would be great to meet like minded folks.
My medical journey is written up here. http://www.drmcdougall.com/stars/robert_cross.htm I am 65 years old and a recently retired Deputy Attorney General for the State of California. My son is a senior at JFK High School. We like to kayak and go birding. We are interested in healthy cooking and helping others recover their health through excellent nutrition. We are fans of Joel Fuhrman, MD, John McDougall, MD, and Jeff Novick, RD.
Kayaking and birding and music. My wife loves paper arts and scrapbooking.
Everybody should be interested in animal welfare and justice. However, health is my main motivation.
I live in Sacramento with my wife, Farley, and son, Charley. We just celebrated our fourth year of being vegan.
