Video Breakdown: Foods That Kill

I stumbled upon a video yesterday that I linked in my last post. After watching the full video last night, I felt that it deserved its own full post since the information is so compelling... and nearly 20 years old. As always, I am continuously amazed at the information that's out there waiting to be found. The problem is, you have to dig for it and not just accept what we thought was good for us.

One of the reasons I decided to do this was because of some bad bloodwork I received in January 2011. My total cholesterol was considered too high a year and a half ago, and for whatever reason, I just didn't do anything about it. I was 23 and it should have been 80 points lower to be considered normal. THAT is why I am doing this!

The further I go "down the rabbit hole", the crazier I feel, but crazy in a good way. I feel like I'm in on this little secret and no one else totally understands why I gave up the animal products. Since people are curious about why I'm doing this, I will break this video down a little bit to where you can fast-forward to the parts you're interested in! I know it's really long and you may not be interested in viewing the full hour, so here it is listed in fragments. Enjoy!
