Like "During my lifetime I have been both, started out as a vegetarian and later became a vegan! The choice is a matter of preference, try them both out and see how you feel. Just remember that protein is essential to your health and well being. Certain medications require that they be attached to protein molecules to travel throughout your body to do their job, so if you are on any type of medication, discuss this with your doctor. Also understand that the human body doesn't treat all sources of protein the same (animal or vegetable) as far as absorbtion is concerned. ~Mays~"
