Just For The Fun of It, Join Oprah This Week

Tomorrow (February 1, 2011) the Oprah Winfrey Show will present a "Vegan Challenge" in which Oprah and 378 members of her staff have pledged to become vegan for (at least) the next seven days.

If ever you've wanted to visit a meat factory, Oprah will be taking her audience on a guided tour.

Advice for Oprah (and you)...

If you have will power and stick to your seven day pledge in which you will eat no meat, eggs, or dairy products, what happens on day 8 and nine is more important than days 1-7.

Especially if you are from Missouri, the "Show-Me" state.

On day 8, return to your Standard American Diet (S.A.D. Diet).

On day 8, have pizza for dinner and ice cream for dessert. Pay careful attention to how good you felt on days 1-7. Then compare that feeling to day 9, because 12-15 hours after loading up on dairy and producing histamines to milk protein and reacting by producing three extra quarts of internal mucus as dairy eaters do...that will become your moment of revelation.

Your decision? Remain vegan and feel wonderful, or remain non-vegan and live with the modern-day curse. The May, 1995 issue of the Townsend Medical Letter included a list of dairy-user's symptoms:

"In reality, cow's milk, especially processed cow's milk, has been linked to a variety of health problems, including: mucous production, hemoglobin loss, childhood diabetes, heart disease, atherosclerosis, arthritis, kidney stones, mood swings, depression, irritability, allergies."
