In 1975, while attending college and taking pre-med classes, I was exposed to the physiology or function of the human body in a serious way. This was the first time I became a vegetarian. I realized that our bodies were created to be more an herbivore than a carnivore. I remained a vegetarian for about one year and then gradually slipped back into my old eating habits, and paid for this over time. I developed the same diseases that many people suffer from such as high-blood pressure, blood sugar problems, chronic fatigue, excess weight and chronic low back pain.
