Diego Ibañez article speaks solely to vegans as opposed to all animal products because they are animal rights sympathizers. Not so. My wife was diagnosed as a Stage IV, terminal cancer patient (breast cancer).

She went through specialized treatment at a clinic in Phoenix which used traditional, cutting edge and non-traditional treatments. She has been cancer free for over two years now. A major part of the treatment was that she had to become a vegan, maintaining a raw vegan diet for the first six months. She cannot have sugar in any form and has to maintain a vegan diet but may have a vegetarian meal from time to time.

We are not animal rights advocates but rather see the vegan diet as critical to good health.
