In the Dr Gregor’s video that we have been discussing the few days, he says vegetarians and vegans have significantly lower blood pressure than does meat eaters. I can attest to this since I was diagnosed with high blood pressure, 12 years ago and decided to go vegetarian instead of take drugs. For 12 years I have had low blood pressure. 39 years ago we knew this by a study done at John Hopkins. The study shows in just 12 days of a vegan diet, your blood pressure is reduced by 6%.Is meat really so important to you that you are willing to die for it?

Meat Can be Murder on Long Term Health

Allison Van Dusen of Forbes says reducing your saturated fat intake, animal products, can significantly improve your health. “Would we all be better off if we dramatically reduced meat to the point of one meal a week? I would say yes,” says Dr. Bob Lawrence, director of the Center for a Livable Future at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. “But the reality is that, from a public health perspective, if we just get some modest reductions in our intake of saturated fats, it’ll have a big impact.” So if you are not ready to become a vegetarian or vegan, try really hard to reduce your animal protein intake by eating much less meat, eggs, milk, cheese and butter. Your health is your choice! Choose wisely.

Andrew Feinberg, director of the Centre for Epigenetics of Common Human Disease at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. This centre is dedicated to epigenetic research and how it affects human health and well-being. Researchers have been poking around in the dark looking for clues on how epigenetics worked. Experiments proved we are affected by our environment including diet, stress and how we think. Today a wide range of illnesses, behaviors and other health indicators are directly related to epigenetics. It is clear that this research directly affects such topics as stem cells, cloning, aging, synthetic biology, species conservation, evolution, and agriculture. Look for some amazing research results from this important centre. This is our future health care.
