YES indeed, Raj and Taj set a beautiful, inspiring commitment to their non-violent vegetarian lifestyle: Good work, boys. Thank you for demonstrating your commitment to peaceful co-existence: You have undoubtedly inspired no one to become a vegetarian. Well done, ambassadors of Peace: Can either of you spell the word S.H.A.R.E. ?

Labels: The Compassionate Diet
"...Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to a man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not to die, so do other creatures."
Newly released, The Compassionate Diet, addresses health concerns both for the individual and the planet as a whole. It is scientific, pragmatic, and elegant in presenting not eating animals as beneficial to the physical and spiritual well-being of individuals and, collectively, a planet whose resources can no longer be considered inexhaustible.
Scientific arguments are presented for a compassionate diet addressing cancer, cholesterol, diabetes, antibiotics fed to animals, pesticides, coronary disease, genetically modified organisms, estrogenic hormones, saturated fat, obesity, osteoporosis, herbicides, factory-farmed-and-drugged animals, benefits of organic agriculture to the individual and the planet, and many stirring quotes from some unexpected, yet highly recognized leaders throughout history advocating a vegetarian way of life.
Approach your diet for your own health, a commitment to sustainable living, a contribution to lowering Global Warming if you believe it is real (as you melt) or simply a way of life that extends
our own personal humanity to the mute brothers and sisters whose stewardship we may or may
not choose to accept.
There are many arguments pro and con regarding a vegetarian way of life addressed by scientific data contained in this book. And there are stirring pleas, from Jane Goodall to Abraham Lincoln, from Mahatma Gandhi to kd lang, to consider the price each of us pay for the consumption of animals. Whether you are interested in improving your own health, the sustainability of our planet, or are stirred sympathetically by the plight of each mute animal brutally put to death in meat processing plants, "The Compassionate Diet" presents each of us something to contemplate if we are self-reflective about who we are and how we wish to carry ourselves in this world, as well as the planet our children inherit.
Just some thoughts late at night while the guinea pigs sleep soundly, their bellies full of sumptuous watermelon!
