Some ways we think that cause us distress
Do vegetarians get enough protein? Yes
Do most non-vegetarian people get enough fibre? No.
Most of us need to try to increase our fruit and veggie intake.
Eat more plants! Only plants contain fiber. There is no fiber in steak :-).

Uncontrolled high blood pressure is one of the common causes of kidney failure. If you have high blood pressure, think about what you are eating, increase your veggies, exercise regularly, take your medications, keep your appointments with your doctor. Protect your kidneys (and your brain and your heart, of course) and stay healthy!
There is a bug going around, causing severe body aches and stomach upset. If you get it, and you have a very high fever or a fever that lasts more than 2 days, or if you feel very ill, please see your physician.
Drink lots of fluids, drink them slowly, take acetaminophen for fever and pain (i.e. calpol/ tylenol/ panadol), and avoid dairy and greasy or spicy foods.
Have a great day!
Are we raising our sons to respect women?

Withdrawal is not an effective contraceptive method. You will probably get pregnant if you rely on this method. You are also at risk for infections. Condoms protect you from pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. Remember HIV is alive and well and out there. You can't tell by looking at someone that they are infected. Be safe, get tested, protect yourself! You can do an oral HIV test and get the result in 20 minutes. Ask your partner to get tested also.
