A Vegetarian Sourcebook
Abstract: Among other reasons, people adopt vegetarian diets is to lose weight, to avoid the taste of meat, or to get closer to God. In sorting out reasons for becoming a vegetarian, the author cites three issues that vegetarians generally fall back on : nutrition, ecology, ethics. The arguments for a vegetarian diet are: it is healthier than a meat-oriented diet; it does not involve animal suffering; and it makes more efficient use of natural resources. Because their are so many types of vegetarians, a concise definition is difficult. To attempt this, the author presents all the arguments about vegetarianism based on: nutrition, medicine, ecology, agriculture, literature, sociology, philosophy, history, and religion, In addition to an extensive bibliography, numerous tables and figures are included.
