I don't worry about getting cancer from hormone- or chemical-laden meat because 1) I played on asbestos sheets as a child 2) watched giant cockroaches get fat on DDT 3) and ingested birth control pills voluntarily for 15 yrs (talk about a poison). My mother died from stomach cancer over 30+ years ago; my brother beat it. If I'm to get cancer, I'll get it. The human body is amazing, what it can endure. People all over the world live on varied diets, what's available to them. As far as organic food, what we grow at home has zero pesticides. And everything else I wash first. I don't know my meat personally, but my husband is an award-winning barbecue griller, so it's all good. See this: https://vijayabodach.blogspot.com/2010/07/holy-smokes-are-winners.html

MaggieAnn, both my kids talk about how deprived they were but they concede they're better off now for the good habits instilled, but the sugar bug is hard to get rid of. Over Christmas I ate far too many sweets and felt like crap afterwards. I still have some ginger snaps that will probably go stale.

Again, do none of you worry about getting cancer from hormone and chemical laden meat? Or do you buy organic?

I'm not in the US, so hormone is not a problem here.

Chemical on the other hand is not so much meat, as grains. Our grain crops are so chemical polluted that I cant eat much in the way of bread. Its not a gluten problem which is in the family, but an intolerance to pesticides.

I use q-tips.

I've looked at eating vs blood type. O type blood people have a very hard time being vegetarians. An O type going vegan suddenly, is likely to suffer a major health breakdown as a result. Cutting out meat for them means they have to replace everything the meat supplied them using supplements, and if they get this wrong, it can be dire.

I had a major spiritual phase, and when doing group events, came across people who espoused vegetarian as the only way a spiritual person can live. Not getting into the argument here, but when I looked at them, I saw seriously sick people whose eating habits were basically killing them. Not everyone of course, but enough to make me research the whole thing.

Sugar is a big issue for me. And it's almost impossible to avoid it. The insidious thing about sugar is it takes 30 years for the problems to really manifest enough for anyone to take it seriously. And by then, it's too late, your body is seriously damaged already.

I like to joke that at my age I need all the hormones I can get. Grin

I do not bother to buy organic, ever.

People get cancer from so many things that GMO meat itself just doesn't seem that toxic. Of course I stay away from bizarre fake foods like pretend hamburger made out of soy and sawdust or whatever.

I never looked into that theory that people with different blood types should eat differently - probably because I don't even know my blood type. Still, I believe different people have different needs. I tried a high protein diet once. It left me all too often feeling queasy, and when that didn't stop after a few weeks, I gave it up. As a child I had to be forced to eat meat and of course eventually developed a taste for it.

I grew up in India not consuming much sugar at all. It was a controlled substance in the house, like store-bought jam or ketchup. When we moved to the US, I noticed that everybody talked about low-fat this and low-fat that and I bought all the nonsense. Developed a craving for sweets. It's a drug. But even as I bought the lies, I was studying biochemistry and physiology and the problems we have with heart problems, obesity, diabetes, etc. all are pointing to sugar. When I got married and had my own kids, I became like my own mother, controlling sugar consumption. But when they started school, they had snacks and candy. I think more and more you have to use your own common sense and judgment. FYI, I use Q-tips for cleaning ears.

Growing up, we never had sweets or sodas in my house. Always good, home-cooked meals. I wouldn't let my kids have cereal or even jelly on their PB&J sandwiches. We never had dessert with our meals, either. My youngest still talks about it, but she definitely has a sweet tooth, though.

I don't use q-tips for cleaning my ears mainly because my problem is a lack of wax, not wax build-up.

Good quote, but I couldn't find it. Here are some of his quotes on religion: https://www.mkgandhi.org/religionmk.htm

Red meat. I eat nearly 100% red meat (I'll occasionally have chicken or bacon). I've been doing so for years.

On the other side of the coin: no fiber. Docs still advise men to consume 38 grams per day. I get zero grams of fiber per day. lol

No fiber for me either. My gut can't take it.

I do like whole wheat bread. I was never a fan of white bread. Rye, pumpernickel, also great. But, I haven't been able to find a good whole wheat for quite some time.
