The meat industry may contest the dietary meatless motif promoted by the senior food-policy director for the Humane Society of the United States, but the arguments favoring the move to a vegetarian or vegan food course are compelling. Using anecdotal histories, the author shows how changes from a meat-heavy intake to a vegetarian diet similar to one adopted by Bill Clinton have aided participants to lose weight, reduce blood pressure, eliminate diabetic therapies, and return the participants to an improved healthy state. Clearly described are the horrid, inhumane conditions under which animals raised for food consumption are subjected. Besides the painful moral issue, the farming of vast numbers of animals produces products that foul the air, waters, and soil. In terms of energy consumption, it is better for humans to eat the grains and vegetation directly rather than waste energy by converting them to pork, beef, poultry, dairy goods, and other products. For claims that nutrients will be lacking from a meatless diet, evidence is presented to show that these substances are readily and richly available from plant matter, and recipes to utilize the vegan ingredients are supplied.

This is a knowledgeable and reader-friendly tract on the benefits of befriending grains, greens, beans, and veggies in place of the animal-rich menus that characterize the Western cuisine.
