Full of Beans!

I've started a series of posts on my T/S page about feeding picky toddlers and children.  Since I've responded to many of you through e-mail about this topic, I thought it would be useful to expand on the idea and cover a food group within a post.  So, today's post is full of beans!   Feel free to share the link on fb, twitter, or any parenting/veg forums you frequent.  Hope you find some useful tips for your kidlets, and you as well!
What made this project especially remarkable is that, among the many associations that are relevant to diet and disease, so many pointed to the same finding: people who ate the most animal-based foods got the most chronic disease. Even relatively small intakes of animal-based food were associated with adverse effects. (Source: The China Study)

I read the China Study and I didn't get that impression, do you have a citation to the particular part that had that claim? I read it awhile ago so I may not be remembering correctly.

I think that any amount of reduction in animal products is beneficial, I don't think it has to be all or nothing.

For me, having myself and my whole family eat vegan would be a huge uphill battle (where my entire family would revolt, I know becuase I've tried), and I have medical issues that may not bode well with a diet that relies on starch, nuts, seeds, and soy for it's protien.

talula, sorry it's taken me a few days to get to your question - it's been hectic round here! Anyhow, yes, if you click through the link, you'll see that exact excerpt - as well as more details on the excerpt tab on that page. The China Study is such a powerful read, I have bought it and lent it out several times, and am eager to read it through another time myself!
