Vegan Firefighters



Today's New York Times includes an article about a team of five vegan firefighters in Austin, Texas. One found out at age 37 that he had high cholesterol, and through a vegan diet he's been able to bring it down to normal levels.

I think it's a great piece. It is a terrific reminder that being hearth-healthy isn't all about pills and angioplasties, and that our lifestyle and habits are crucial.

In case you can't pull up the article, here's a link to the Engine 2 Fire Company's home page.

That is totally cool! I need more good news stories like this.

Hope you're well, Vegan Doc!
