The Fruit Doctor Michelle (not a fruitarian) on youtube has produced a video commenting briefly on her own journey of following a vegan lifestyle in response to a number of high-profile vegans who have returned to eating meat/fish etc.
What she does in the video is try to explain why she will remain a vegan and how she thrives on it nd has done for 30 years. Part of her justification is many well documented and high profile vegans or near-vegans with good long lives. What is valuable is these people are thriving to the very end. In her video she talks about Bernando Lapallo, Fauja Signh, Marge Jetton, Ellsworth Wareham, Ancel Keys, Norman Walker, Roy Swank, Mike Fremont, Cicely Tyson, Walter Kempner, Charlotte Gerson, Jay Kordich, Virginia Vetrano, George Malkmus, Caldwell Esselstyn T. Colin Campbell, Ruth Heidrich, Mimi Kirk, Karyn Calabrese, Annette Larkins, Victoria Moran.
What she is asking for some people to both give a thumbs down to the video and comment with high-profile low-carb/paleo/carnivore eaters who exhibit similar long lifestyle successes who are thriving at the end of their lives.
