“If you find one reference, fair enough, that’s good. But if you find another reference that confirms the first reference, that’s even better. Based on that, if you find a lot of information out there, it can get confusing. But if it gets confusing, this is why you have to think. You have to analyze the information and you have to think, make a decision based on what’s right for you. Because your doctor, to be honest, does your doctor really care about your health? Once he gives you a prescription, that’s it, you’re out of there. He’s got a hundred, if not more, other patients, other than you.

“Why are you guys here? Especially the non-vegetarians, have you got any non-vegetarians here? Hands up. (I’m here predominantly because for the extended periods of time that I have gone vegetarian, I’m seen very clear, tangible effect on my digestion, on my sleep, on just the way I relate to the external environment and also how I feel about myself. So, I don’t need convincing. It’s just a journey I’m on.)”
