Helpful health info from SF nonprofit organization
      #227704 - 06/04/07 04:48 PM

I just launched a website as a project of nonprofit organization Bay Area Vegetarians, promoting the health benefits of a plant-based diet to the San Francisco LBGT community. It includes a section on HIV.

www.LiveStrongandLong.org

My personal experience as a nonprogressor and long-time vegetarian, and observations of friends who changed their diets and improved their lab results were confirmed by a reputable doctor – so I felt it was very important to get this information to people so they can consider it in their treatment options. Unfortunately, there are no formal studies on this topic yet.

Please pass it on to anyone who may find it useful.

Why, when I read this post, does this question come up? Should I ask this question? Do I really want to ask this question? Do I really, really want to be a bastard tonight? Yes, yes, yes, really do.

Question is: why do I get the feeling the somewhere along the line, if I follow your links it is going to cost me a hell of a lot of money?

Yeah, I thought the same, but I went to the website and was pleasantly surprised.

I understand your suspicion - so I broke the posting rules and changed the title to clarify that it's from a non-profit organization (100% volunteer). I have a full-time career, but put countless hours of personal time into this project.

You can verify Bay Area Vegetarians (Montara, CA) at http://apps.irs.gov/app/pub78

Some of the links at the site are for legitimate merchants, catering to vegetarians. Bay Area Vegetarians/LiveStrongandLong.org receives no compensation from any of the linked sites.

Thanks
