A bit about plant base diet backgroud.

We have been taught by our family that  feeding our body with meat was healthy and necessary to our vital system, you are about to discover in this article that this is not correct.


In the old days this was not like that, only rich people were able to afford an everyday steak, so the 99 per cent of the population was naturally vegan most of the time. In fact my mum sometimes remembers how she was having just a piece of meat once a year. After the industrial revolution, circumstances changed and meat started to be more available and cheaper, thanks to animal exploitation.


If you are still not convinced, there are scientific evidences showing that millions of years ago the prehistoric humans, were fruitarian


All these people many years ago were healthy, even healthier than now, so that support the theory that a vegan diet is enough to keep a person alive, and on top of that, is good for the body well-being.
