    Then what's your reason for choosing veganism over vegetarian?:shrug:

    How could veganism improve your sense of smell, pray tell?

    As for clearheadedness, I am only assuming so, as they'd be less fat and 'lazy dead crap' in your system. Maybe I should assume a better sense of smell too...

    Or maybe you misunderstood, what you heard is that 'vegans smell better'???

    Except for being freakishly (anorexic) thin.

    chimpkin is vegan, so has first hand knowledge. We've had threads on this subject before. As to whether they smell better or not is debatable, but going vegan does change the way you smell. Also, after you've been vegan for awhile you can smell the meat eaters around you. Or so I've been told.

    Every person/creature has a distinct personal scent and this is part of what initially gets our attention, the nose being a most discerning and accurate instrument of measure.

    Just as good water is odorless and tasteless, healthy persons on a balanced diet seem to be almost odorless, even for days until sweat and secretions accumulate and surface bacteria multiply. (Not everyone has access to running water 24/7 or the luxury of using this precious resource for personal ablutions several times a day.)

    More protein in the diet, not only more meat, seems to result in stronger body odor. Protein takes longer to digest, which may account in part for this observation.

    I'm sure what you say is true. But that makes me wonder how vegans might get along with a meat eating mate. Probably the same way a non-smoker gets along with a smoker?

    In the past I've tried to see how long I could go without eating any meat. I managed about 4 days, before I was jonesing for a meat fix so bad I had to run out and eat a Windy's burger as fast as possible, and I thought tobacco was addicting.

    So how did this thread's title change? I assumed someone merged my recent vegan thread with an old one? Fine, lot's of good discussion and info here - but who and how? (I tried a search for 'vegan' and got nothing ... that I can now recall...)

    You are correct. I merged your thread with an existing older thread because, as you say, there was already some good discussion on the subject. Feel free to PM me if there are any issues with this action.


    Who = me. How = because I have the power and the licence to use it!

    There is a redirect link for your thread that will remain for the next few days.
