Are you a healthy vegan?
Veganism is about the animals, however, there are other things that attract people to the movement. Regardless of your reason for being a vegan, unfortunately, veganism has a very high recidivism rate. This can get better if more of us learn how to follow a proper vegan diet.

Great reads for those interested in starting a plant-based diet and how to be a healthy vegan
The China Study
Dr. T. Colin Campbell and his son, Thomas M. Campbell, review the relationship between diet and disease, giving life-saving nutritional information. Originally seeking to improve the quality of animal protein, with their research they actually found how animal protein is associated with chronic disease. This book reviews more nutrition than many doctors learn in four years of medical school. I recommend every vegan, as well as non-vegan, read it. After reading this you will be one step closer to being a healthy vegan.
It is never too late to go vegan! This is a great book and recipe resource geared toward people over the age of 50 who are considering transitioning to a vegan diet. This will give you a better idea of how to be vegan in a non-vegan world. I bought this book for my dad and it has convinced him to transition to a plant-based diet. He has also had many benefits from his new diet, including no longer having to take his high blood pressure medication and weight loss, which has helped him ease his chronic back pain, and reduce joint pain while walking.
