<腦中風青年:素食令身體不再沉重>Cerebral Apoplexy Youth: Vegetarian Diet Relaxes Your Body


健康飲食日漸受到關注,加上人們對素食的認同,令到吃素的風氣不再局限於宗教原因,而是一種新興的生活品味。素食對身體是好是壞,營養是否足夠,都眾說紛紜,兩岸的大學曾經做過研究,指出吃素的兒童亦能夠健康地生長和發育。與此同時,本澳一位重病青年以素食配合運動,病情得以改善並逐漸回復健康,他認為吃素能減輕身體的負擔,那種輕鬆的感覺,是以前健康時所沒有的。

Healthy diets are catch more and more people’ attention and becoming a new lifestyle as people's growing awareness on animal rights and the trend of vegetarian diets being unrestricted by religion. There are different opinions whether vegetarian diet is good for your health in terms of nutrition. Universities across the world have conducted researches to prove that children that have vegetarian diets can also grow and develop healthy. In Macau, there is a seriously ill young man who is recovered from sickness after having vegetarian diet with exercises. He said that the vegetarian diet could relax the body and relieved his burden and this is something he has never felt when he was healthy.

2012年,若三十歲和喜歡運動的黃志君發生右腦出血性中風,最嚴重時曾經左邊身體完全癱瘓,留院整整半年,中風的康復過程非常慢長,即便到現在也未完完回復過來。倘若不是欠缺運動,就可能是自身的體質或飲食問題,因此有朋友建議他吃素來增加康復效益。

Zhijun Wong, a sport lover who suffered from cerebral apoplexy at the age of 30 in 2012. The left part of his body was paralyzed and he stayed in the hospital for 6 months. The recovery process took a long period of time and he was not yet recovered . If the reason is not lacking sports, it must be the problem on either his constitution or diet. Some friends suggested him to try a vegetarian diet to facilitate the recovery process.

那時黃志君分別先後看了兩套紀錄片,一部是由保羅麥加地主持的「如果屠宰場是玻璃場的世界」,讓眾人看見屠場地獄般的世界和人類對待動物的殘暴行為。另一部是美國前副總統戈爾的「絕望真相」,帶出現時人類食肉模式對環境的破壞,這兩部紀錄片都令他更堅定決心吃全素。

He watched two documentaries. One is “If Slaughterhouse has Glass Walls”, directed by Paul McCartney, which shows a cruel world of the slaughterhouse to the public and brutal behavior towards animals. The other one is “An Inconvenient Truth” by previous vice-president of America, Albert Gore, which reflects that the carnivorous action is destroying the environment. As a result, the two documentaries reinforce his commitment to be an entire vegetarian.

患病後的黃志君專注長跑,他指在吃全素食後感覺到身體明顯變輕了,不再沉重,而且他發覺長跑能有效加速回復力,相比少年時雖然喜歡各類運動,但身體不論休息多久也覺得很沉重,因此他並不擔心吃素會影響長跑表現,而且他認識很多傑出運動員也是素食愛好者。

After having the disease, Zhijun Wong devoted himself to long distance running. He felt that his body was lighter and relaxed after practicing vegetarian diet. Also, he found that long distance running is aid to expedite the recovery process while other kinds of sports, which he often did as a teenager, cannot relax his body even with a good rest. Therefore, he does not worry about the vegetarian diet will affect his performance in long distance running. He also knows many excellent sportsmen who are vegetarians at the same time.

結果顯示兒童素食者都能正常地生長和發育,而素食者也有正常的血清維生素 B-12、鐵濃度以及正常的血液生化狀況。雖然素食可能導致某些營養素缺乏被一些研究指出,但只要父母能夠提供孩子足夠的素食營養和良好的照顧,素食者在生命各階段仍然能夠滿足其飲食需要,並且有正常的發展與營養狀態。

The research result shows that the vegetarian children have a normal growth and development curve and their serum vitamin B-12, iron concentration and blood biochemical level meets the standard criteria. Although vegetarian diets could probably result in shortage of certain types of nutrients, it will be fine as long as parents provide sufficient vegetarian nutrition and good care. Vegetarians can still satisfy the dietary needs at different stages and have a standard growth curve and nutritional intake.

吃素已成為一種新興的生活品味,特別是在年青一代中,素食愛好者林滿一直大力推廣素食,他認為素食是一種力量,但一個人的力量始終有限,如能團結起來便可起更大作用,因此他聯合一群志同道合的朋友,先在通訊群組互相分享資訊、互相扶持,繼而走出網路世界,制作宣傳單張在街派發,並計劃成立協會,目的正是希望用不同的途徑進行素食文化推廣。

The vegetarian diet has already become a trendy lifestyle especially in the youth generation. A vegetarian enthusiast Man Lin has always been advocating this type of diet and thinks that it is a kind of power. However, individual force is always limited compare to a united one. He once gathered friends with the same interest to share information on the Internet and produced promotional pamphlets to give out on street. He also plans to establish an association which aims to promote vegetarian culture through different channels.
