Vegan Story: I just happened upon a copy of the China Study
back in 2005. I was always interested in health as I am a physician, this book filled in what was missing in my understanding of diet and nutrition. I did more research on veganism, I liked what I read, so I switched. All the athletic benefits are great, I feel less soreness and I adapt quicker
to increases in workout intensity.
