Number Six: My Grandfather
The previous numbers have been talking about how being a vegan prevents expression of certain illnesses thus lowers probability of dying early based on an article. For this number, as a personal testimony, I would like to share the story of my great-grandfather who lived until 94 years old.
He didn’t know what veganism was per se but he lived like one. He didn’t eat red meat or any animal-derived food. He lived a simple life in his farm and he just died of old age. One night, he was sleeping and he didn’t wake up the following day. He didn’t have any illnesses beforehand. He continued to plow the fields until his last breath. May his soul rest in peace.
