Dr. Greger talks about passages in Daniel (1 verses 8-16)that teach people to eat a diet devoid of meat. Eating only fruits and vegetables. This is what we call today a vegan diet. A study was down to determine the effects of a 21 day Daniel diet. Participants enjoyed a positive reduction in blood pressure, insulin levels and cholesterol levels.

My good friend & neighbor Bob called me with a reference to the Old Testament, Daniel Chapter 1 Verses 1 to 21. As I read this story I was amazed. It was about smart children being prepared to empress the King. While there, they were fed wine and the King’s meat. Daniel asked that four of the children be allowed to eat Pulse (Legumes and vegetables) and water instead of the meat and wine. These four were well nourished, smarter than the rest and looked good. Is this a foretelling of epigenetics? We now know our bodies are influenced by what we eat. Where they early Vegans?
