Noted, but unfortunately, not everyone can be a vegan. Personally, I was for 3 years, and lost so much weight, no energy, etc., and I was under the watch of vegan doctors at the time. They eventually told me that being a vegan was not for everyone. Believe me, I would surely be if I could, as I agree with those that are able to eat no meat, fish or dairy.

Charles, I believe what you told us. Till recently, humans have never been strict vegetarians. For millions of years, women used to collect vegetable and fish, and men used to hunt. Once in a while, humans could have the previlege to enjoy some meat.

The RepubliCONs use that sort of "far-out Vegan" label as put-downs, which has made Liberal & Peace "bad words" somehow. I'm NOT Vegan, but I can certainly vote for one!:)
...a recent national poll on major issues - Iraq, health care, the Patriot Act, the environment - showed a majority of voters align themselves with Kucinich's platform. Check it out for yourself:

I am voting for a man who is both a vegan and a good man but I am not a vegan either .
If the word vegan is used against Kucinich then maybe it shouldn't be in the article so as not to detract from the purpose which is to get him elected.It makes it sound like your trying to promote veganism and not Kucinich .Just a thought !

I guess I'm about 97% Vegan....just can't give up cheese, mayo or Ben & Jerry's!
But, hey, I'd vote for Dennis if he ate raw meat! It isn't what goes in his stomach, it's what comes out of his heart, mind and spirit!

Go Vegans!!!!! Healthier, clearer mind, more energy, more compassionate!!!!!!!!!! Dennis sounds like an awesome guy! And I don't mean that people who aren't vegans ( I myself am only a vegetarian) are not compassionate, because they certainly are, but when you eat a completely animal free diet (vegan) you show your compassion for animals more clearly and have less explaining to do. Many olympic athletes and triathletes are completely vegan!!!!!!!

Just some thoughts....being vegetarian or vegan is a personal decision and should not become a political issue....I admire Dennis K. mainly because he has made personal choices that go totally against the mainstream, and definitely are not considered 'Republican' ways of thinking and acting at all....Dennis K. is a big ray of hope and we should all support him.....

Thanks for the comments, For information on how to get complete nutrition from a vegan diet, go to As with any diet it needs planning. There are thousands of healthy average weight vegans. In fact it is seen as THE healthiest diet by many in the medical profession. Being vegan is not difficult and if you check out and watch the many horrific factory farming and killing videos, the choice becomes clear. 90 percent of all nonhuman animals raised for "food" are factory farmed. Also, its worth considering a meat eater riding a bike makes a bigger carbon imprint than a vegan driving a Hummer ;) So being vegan is THE choice for the environment and the biggest personal contribution one can make to reducing global warming. Dennis Kucinich being vegan is just another indication that he truly believes in non-violence.
