What Do Bill Clinton, Steve Wynn, John Mackey, and Mike Tyson Have in Common?

These four powerful men have all declared themselves in favor of a vegan diet. I know of no other similarities between this ex-president, hotel tycoon, supermarket builder, and ex-prize fighter. At first glance you might think that the public support for not eating animals would be a reckless decision. Traditionally a vegetarian diet has been considered a sign of weakness—associated with an image of a pale listless hippy hanging out in the back of a health food store. These four men must have found reasons to ignore this common myth. Finding a fountain of youth becomes especially important as health declines with age, causing people to make desperate changes—as radical as replacing burgers and bacon for barley and beans.

What have these four men discovered that other men, women, and children have yet to learn?

The gladiator-like strength gained by adopting a vegan diet.

Comments on the Colonoscopy Article August 2010 Newsletter

I am pleased that my August 2010 article on screening for colon cancer with a sigmoidoscope exam has received so much interest. The colonoscope exam may save lives but it also takes lives, and the costs and adverse effects are significant. My overall recommendations that I share with you in my newsletter are made only after thorough investigation of the science and considerable thought of all the possible consequences. I think a second read of my article would help some of you to come to a better understanding of my position on the issues. My December 2002 newsletter and my book, Dr. McDougall's Digestive Tune-up, have vital information on the cause of colon cancer and polyps. Your efforts for cancer prevention should be solidly focused on the matter that is inside your colon: the remnants of your meals.
