Trying to change all your bad habbits at once is never going to work! That's a big reason that diets don't work well (but that's a blog for another time.). If you try and cut out all the pop, the sugar, the salt, the carbs and the alcohol all at the same time, there is NO way you succeed, and if you do, you are probably not staying sane very well. So my advice is always pick ONE bad habbit at a time, start with a managable one right out of the gate. Make your first change one that you know you can do.

This article is not about discussing what I personally think about animal products, nor what a doctor or a certain diet simply states about them. Rather, this article will discuss the scientific implications of the consumption of animal products in relation to immune system health and the prevention and control of disease using research-grounded findings.
