Hi all, good to be reading posts on here and about time too I think. I have been vegan just over a year and wish I had done it years ago. I was plagued with stomach cramps last year which the doctor told me was IBS. He said to eliminate foods starting with dairy to find the cause. This coincided with my vegan daughter challenging me to go vegan last November. Anyway a year down the line, stomach problems gone and no wish to ever be involved in anything that animals will be hurt in again. Best wishes, Dave.
