I made this to help people. It is totally free and easily shareable. It's going to take us, the conscious eater, to change the eating habits of the ignorant. First, we must live the life ourselves.

Nice work, but be wary of making statements like this:

I do not believe that a person has to go to school for umpteen years to declare himself or herself a doctor.


There are too many quacks out there who call themselves "Doctor" when they've had no medical training. Some are annoying and embarrassing, like Gillian McKeith. Others are downright dangerous and their fanatical advice (e.g. saying you can cure terminal cancer by eating no fat) has put people's lives in danger.

Please be wary of inadvertently encouraging them (and of making yourself harder to take seriously) by making such statements.

The word doctor means to teach. One does not have to go to school for umpteen years, per se, but one has to do the knowledge and understand it.

I agree with you, to the point that someone can mistake the wording. Fortunately, I believe I clarify this in the entire paragraph from which you took my quote.

The paragraph in its entirety:

"I do not believe that a person has to go to school for umpteen years to declare himself or herself a doctor. Or that it takes a college education for you to become a teacher. But, I do find it troublesome when individuals let unqualified people influence major life choices."

The last sentence clearly states that I feel that it's troublesome when people like the guy you mentioned (Gillian McKeith), influence our choices. Once again, I BELIEVE it does not take excessive schooling to doctor yourself, which in turn means to teach oneself.

Thanks for allowing me to reiterate and clarify a point.

Take Care!

Hi soulfulbodymind,

thx for your link and your work! As a novice in vegan nutrition (ovo-lacto for 18 yrs) this seems very useful to me.

Cheers
