Say "soul food" and most people imagine a spread of barbecued ribs, fried chicken and pork chops, ham, black-eyed peas and green beans with ham hocks, corn bread, macaroni and cheese, potato salad, and a delectable list of desserts.

Not everyone can go vegan, some people can't metabolize the nutrients and vitamins from a purely vegan diet - some can't even be true vegetarians.
I knew someone who was vegan for years, no probs. Then one day they started getting problems with their brain. After months of neurology and psychiatry they worked out that their purely vegan diet wasn't allowing some chemical actions in their brain to work. They went back - under protest but wanting to live again - to an omnivorous diet and were fine within months. They were actually suicidal when they were committed.
Fact is, different humans have different genetic predispositions based on heritage and culture. A lot of humans have a pretty omnivorous diet from their culture and heritage, so they are brought into being with a wide range of foodstuffs. Some folks are brought up entirely vegetarian from birth and can't really stomach animal products.
People like the Inuit can subsist solely on seal/walrus/whale blubber for months - sometimes it is stored and almost rancid - but it is a diet that would probably make you or I ill within days.
Today we know more about food than ever and we now know that some people are severely allergic to simple things like peanuts and flour. Decades ago these people would probably just have died and we would have never had known why.
I was talking to a girl the other day that was allergic to sesame seeds - she works at a McDonald's SMDH
This is so true. I've tried to go vegan or vegetarian numerous times....going 6 to 8 months was the longest, but I had to give it up because of health issues. My body began to fight against me and I look horrible and became quite ill.

I've tried time and time again, only to finally give in because of health issues. Unfortunately, everyone can't be vegetarian. I wish I could, but I can't.

This sounds like an over exaggeration you're saying you became sick from not ingesting something that is dead. It is possible that you became sick before trying a vegetarian diet from very unhealthy digestion from sick food from factory farming which is loaded with diseased horomones, during that period you developed cancer or diabeties that you're not consciously aware of and when you went away from eating the unhealthy abuse bad horomone dead things that you don't know what they are you became aware that you're sick. I say this because not eating a dead animal would have no affect upon a healthy person. You were and are probably already sick, it could be cancer. I'm older and live a vegan. Sometimes I eat only non-msg peanuts and soy liquid for one or two weeks at a time with no problems and I've been this way for many many years, my blood pressue most of the time is around 120/80. Sometimes people are not aware of cancern for years until they have a sroke.

Plus a vegetarian diet is loaded with solid food. Milk wheat products like bread, butter, cheese, ice creme, eggs. Most of the products are all factory farmed products that are associated with animal violence and terrible animal slavery and abuse, but at your table are loaded with starch, fats, and fillers.

I have never been healthier in life than from being vegan. Even when I was a young kid years and years and years ago I wasn't this healthy. I don't allow people or commercialism greed to alter my good choices just because they want to get rich and mislead the public.

I aquired this article from a Buddhist man. Buddha taught his followers that they are not to kill or to cause slaughter , many Buddhist feel as long as the subject is not murdered in their name they can eat the slaughtered or abused animal. Buddhist are probably not aware of the commercial business immoral greed, the adultery of idolatry, the worship of money, or worship of money as God,-powerful commercial business- has a chair with their name on it, its unhealthiness, and probably all of our names on the 'satanic power' list, with our profiles and facial designs, eye prints, fed into their computer system to be forced power fed commercial death food. Satanic agenda sort of speak in a conspiracy sense of nature.

Indian man claims to have had no food or drink for 70 years

This is a true story http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asi...

This is not the only claim!

Therese Neumann a famous German Catholic mystic and stigmatic.
Claimed an abstinence from 1926-1962 from all food and drink except the Eucharistic Host.

It's truly amazing that the human body can actually rejuvenate itself if it has been damaged to being healthy again if the diet is correct. The soul of the wicked and rich would be another question all together.

Allow me for a second to give you some views of different religious views of what will happen to animal abusers after death.

In Buddhist cosmology there are 'eight cold conditions of hell' and eight hot hells.

Each lifetime in the 'cold hells' is twenty times the length of the life before it.

The last of the hot hell 'number eight' is a number of years in perhaps billions of years of suffering.

Here in.
The Vision of Er In Book 10 of his Republic, Plato has Socrates tell the story of the vision of Er, an allegory concerning the fate of human souls after death and the way in which their next life on earth is determined. The following is the Jowett translation

"In the intermediate space there were judges seated, who commanded the just, after they had given judgment on them and had bound their sentences in front of them, to ascend by the heavenly way on the right hand; and in like manner the unjust were bidden by them to descend by the lower way on the left hand; these also bore the symbols of their deeds, but fastened on their backs. He drew near, and they told him that he was to be the messenger who would carry the report of the other world to men, and they bade him hear and see all that was to be heard and seen in that place."

"The story, Glaucon, would take too long to tell; but the sum was this: He said that for every wrong which they had done to any one they suffered tenfold; or once in a hundred years -- such being reckoned to be the length of man's life, and the penalty being thus paid ten times in a thousand years. If, for example, there were any who had been the cause of many deaths, or had betrayed or enslaved cities or armies, or been guilty of any other evil behavior, for each and all of their offenses they received punishment ten times over, and the rewards of beneficence and justice and holiness were in the same proportion...."
