|would like to see some evidence or even a well thought out, informed explanation for that theory.
And see, that's what most of the people who responded to the post requested.
Clear evidence or actually ANY evidence was never forthcoming. The OP posted a couple of links, and suggested interested people should read "vegan blogs" for more info. Thanks, but I'd like something a LITTLE more reputable, since anyone can start a blog.
Several pointed out that cessation of menses can actually be a sign of serious health problems, but no evidence refuting this was ever presented either, except for two links to articles on a raw vegan website, about vitamin b12.
I guess it was just someone new to raw vegan lifestyle who found an interesting article and got overly excited about it without researching its validity.
She also claimed to be charting her cycles and ovulating but not having periods herself, but has yet to provide any charts as evidence of this claim.
I was kind of hoping there would at least be some sort of rational information presented about this, but so far I've been thoroughly disappointed.
Even the most alternative and non-mainstream health information I have seen states that menstruation is normal and healthy. Now obviously heavy and painful cycles can indicate problems, but not a healthy regular menstrual cycle.
Someone brought out a very valid point: Men never menstruate. Does that mean they are LESS toxic than women because they don't menstruate?
Yeah, just what the world needs, another excuse to view a normal part of being female as something "dirty" and "toxic."
How can it be toxic when it makes such great plant food?
