Over 300 people showed up to hear his presentation. I was really glad to see such a great turnout in Columbus...standing room only at one point. My husband and I attended because we were so excited that someone was actually stopping in Columbus to talk about going vegan. Dr Barnard was very nice and took so much time answering questions and signing books.
I also had a nice conversation with the lady next me about what I eat and what my favorite recipes are. She was most concerned about having to give up milk and when I mentioned that my husband was raised on a dairy farm and went vegan, she started asking him a bunch of questions. The more people around us that heard his story, the more questions they were asking.
At the end, one guy stood up and talked about his experience with diabetes and going vegan. Now he is on track to have all his medications stopped and he is feeling better than ever. I wanted to get up and hug him. He brought tears to my eyes.
