I wanted to tee up a discussion. I will be 72 years old in July. For far more than half of that time I have been a vegetarian and, really, vegan without any thought of the distinction over that time. I think that people's health would be better and the world would be better if more people were vegan. I also believe that we should treat animals with kindness and care. Many people whom I have known for a long time have no idea of this part of my life. I keep it low profile.
