Can't agree with this article. Jack LaLanne probably died due to a lack of Vitamin K2, which is provided most generously in nature by hard cheese and soft cheese, which he refused to eat and probably contributed to his aortic calcification. [Portion removed.]

Fazsha, I think food that comes from cows is heavenly, and would never demonize it. But Jack LaLanne? He was 96 years old for god's sake. Doesn't anyone just die of old age anymore?

I agree with Fazsha. You apparently didn't read the article he attached, which is fine, but he was dead of pneumonia after a heart valve operation caused by aortic calcification. If LaLanne wants to lecture us about how to live longer, then at least he should have been advised of how to avoid aortic calcification, rather than telling everyone to stay away from anything coming from a cow. I'm sure if you eat right, including milk, beef, and cheese, and exercise, you will live just as long as LaLanne. LaLanne's brother lived to 95, and there is no evidence that his brother exercised.
