Read full description of the books:
This is a concise and very readable book that outlines the main reasons to be a vegetarian.
The four main themes are: Health, Environment, Animal Welfare (ethical considerations), and Religious/Spiritual.
The authors use quotes from scientists, celebrities, and famous vegetarians, such as George Bernard Shaw, Gandhi, and Dr. Peter Singer. Other famous vegetarians surprised me: Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, and Leo Tolstoy all seemed a surprise to be so dedicated to eating vegetables and avoiding meat.
Lots of good quotes and statistics are used in bite sized chunks that are handy to read in a spare moment, or to be reviewed to answer a question that comes up.
Health and Animal Welfare are the motivators historically, but recently we have become aware of the severe negative environmental impact of the industrial production of animals for food.
The Health benefits of vegetarianism have been studied extensively and the results overwhelming in the condemnation of meat as unhealthy food choice.
Animal Welfare and ethical concerns focus on the taking of life for the sole purpose of the short lived taste of meat. Since we have reached the point where a vegetable based diet can sustain us as well, or better, than a meat based diet, how can we justify the pain and suffering we cause animals just for the taste of their flesh?
The Environmental impact of factory farming is immense, both in the US and around the world. The process of industrial food production taints the water, fills the air with rank pollution, and encourages disease.
The more you read about the impact of eating meat, the more you will be drawn to the vegetarian approach to eating.
