A great recipe for narrowing your blood vessels

I took Michael Setter’s advice yesterday and looked up the true facts of LDL (Low-density lipoproteins) which carry bad cholesterol through all the blood vessels of the body. 

High levels of LDL definitely raise the risk of heart disease, stroke, erectile dysfunction and other health issues, as it builds up on the walls of blood vessels as plaque, causing the vessels throughout the body to narrow. 

So, Mr Setter, you are ill-informed, as animal products contain saturated fats and cholesterol, but have no healthy fibre to eliminate the unwanted toxins from the body. 

I have practised veganism for many years and have studied extensively its many benefits for human health, the health of the planet and for the billions of animals that are unnecessarily slaughtered for food. The question we are most often asked as vegans is, “Where do you get your protein?” My reply is there are no hospital wards in the world for “protein deficiency”. Protein, and in fact all the necessary nutrients, are available in plant foods, even in the humble potato. Small amounts of vitamin B12 are necessary to us all and it is readily obtained in fortified foods. I rest my case.
