Dave, I'm not disagreeing with you on diet affecting skin cancer, but do you think that God would have designed our bodies not to need B12 (from animals and animal products) and then suddenly changed them to need B12 after the fall? The reason I ask is because vegans (and some vegetarians) have to take supplements to get the B12 they need.
Not to mention that there are many people who have given up on veganism because they were literally depriving and slowly killing themselves. I remember reading about one female blogger who quit for genuine health reasons and was berated, even verbally abused, by the vegan community. Not for me.

Perhaps our shortened years have nothing to do with nutrition but rather with sin itself bringing death upon us, that is, destroying us. God set our age (days) at 120 years to prevent utter, total, instantaneous annihilation that sin brings to human flesh. In other words, God had to intervene in order to keep his children from self-created extinction.
That's what sin does. It destroys. There's something very supernatural about it that affects the fiber of our very being. Sin is Satan's kool-aid, and there's nothing nutritional about that! Maybe it permanently changed humankind physically, mentally, emotionally, morally, and even sexually. It definitely did spiritually. So maybe, just maybe this has nothing to do with nutrition and soil composition, and sunlight. Sin simply destroys - it utterly destroys. And only God could handle it's limitations to the extent that He sent Jesus to die for our sins - to just get it over with once and for all, that is, to conquer the total affects of sin which were to destroy that which was holy and perfect from the beginning. Thank you Jesus.
Hey guys, don't get me wrong. I enjoy the discussion! Just adding a different perspective.
