    Thumbs up US vegan grandmother 'looks decades younger'

    Hi, just saw this today on ninemsn and thought I would share, hopefully it's in the right area.

    At first I was quite skeptical, thinking it was something like Atkins, but then she said she started off as a vegetarian and then slowly became vegan! I was really happy 'cause this is the first time I have ever seen anything like this on the front page

    Here it is and hopefully it works for everyone.

    Great advertisement for a vegan lifestyle! Although, I think genes may be the answer... I'm pretty sure I will be a wrinkly prune at her age regardless of my diet! I'm sure the healthy diet really helps though

    Good to see such a positive article for once! Not sure what's so great about drinking rainwater though.

    You know I reckon most vegan people I know look younger than their age. I think it's just not putting all that animal stuff into our bodies. It's really nice when people say I look much younger than I am and I always reply that's it's probably because I'm vegan.

    "Mrs Larkins also collects rainwater to drink and water her garden full of fruit and vegetables – which she calls her “fountain of youth”."

    Can you actually drink rainwater? I would have thought it wouldn't be pure enough?

    ^You can, but preferably after you've filtered or cleaned it, because of pollutants and other nasty stuff. And you have to have a way to collect it before it touches the ground or something else that might have lots of bacteria or toxic stuff on it.
    (I've just been reading about it because I was wondering the same thing.)

    really? rain water as long as you arent in a city where its polluted tastes amazing, if you've never tasted rain water out in the country unfiltered and unpolluted its amazing, it actually has a taste.

    Only way it'd get more pure is if it was a mountain spring which comes from snow or rain, or from glacier.

    If it has a taste then it obviously isn't pure. Spring water isn't pure, that's why they list all the impurities on the bottles.

    I dunno if drinking rain water away from a city would help all that much, rain clouds can travel a very long way.
