My first thought was near the Redwood Forests in Northern California, USA. Or perhaps in the San Fransico area (Lots of Vegan Dining) to be close to them.

The Redwoods are my favorite place to go, I'm hoping I can take time off again this summer to visit.

People who eat a high protein diet usually develope calcium deficiencies because the excess protein pushes the calcium through their system to fast to be properly absorbed. Since milk has a high protein content, it's abilit...

I don't agree. Why shouldn't we drink milk or cheese? They are some very healthy aliments, rich in Calcium.

I began eating Vegan for spiritual reasons. Health came second. The enviroment came third. Animals came last.

I have become more compassionate now for animals.

My point is, you can't sell anything you don't beleive in. People won't buy anything unless there's a "need" inside them.
