About Doug Hines

Doug Hines is a Doctor of Nutrition at WishItWereTrue University. No! No! No! Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!  (You would pay more attention to this site if he had some fancy credentials, right? A layman couldn't possibly have more wisdom about a subject than an educated, trained "professional", right?)

Really... He is a 71-year-old, former U.S. Coast Guard licensed 100-ton Motor Yacht Captain who has also spent a great deal of time studying nutrition and the other material in this website.

This is Bubby-the-Cat, Doug's friend, companion and fellow-traveler. You can tell that he is just thrilled about getting a bath.


On a Personal Note... Ahimsa - the Basic Tenet of my Life

Ahimsa is a Sanskrit word meaning 'not to injure' and 'have compassion for' all living beings. I live by the basic principle of 'Ahimsa' (harmlessness) - the Hindu, Buddhist and Jain tradition of nonviolence toward living beings.

There is so much cruelty and hardship in this world, much of it imposed by our very nature of being alive. If we are to live and prosper we must eat something, be it plant or animal. In so doing we inflict pain, suffering and death upon other individuals. Plants and animals are sentient beings. They respond to stimuli and exhibit properties we commonly describe as 'feelings'. If you think that characterization doesn't apply to plants as well as animals you are ignorant of current scientific study. (google Clive Baxter)

While recognizing that, to continue my existence in this dimension, I must inflict pain, suffering and death upon other beings, I choose to diminish the amount of that hurting. Since I can live a healthy life by eating a plant-based diet, while knowing full well that I am hurting plants, I decided to stop a great portion of the hurt I was inflicting by not eating animals and their byproducts. I came to realize that I can personally, consciously, save thousands of sentient animals from pain, suffering and death by not eating them.

I choose to enable life for animals.

"Much more than a diet, veganism is a way of being, an ethical commitment, which recognizes the equality and interconnectedness of all life." -Doug Hines

Adopting a vegan diet is a stepping stone to bringing a whole new way-of-being into existence. All of the significant challenges of our world... everything... including ending disease and health problems, ending world hunger, water shortages, animal exploitation, economic troubles, environmental destruction, global warming, ending war... all of it... will fade away and be solved naturally in choosing a vegan way of being. We can literally return to Eden.

Change your diet, change your body, change your mind and spirit. Enter a new way of living in a new world - a world that works for all - human and non-human alike.

"Having empathy and compassion for animals is the very key to human transformation. Just be love, and everything else will follow" -Doug Hines
