Around the World Vegan Style: 250 Meals, 700 Recipes, 10 Chefs' Artistry
Despite the Western diet high in meat and dairy products, much of the rest of the world has traditionally followed a primarily or entirely vegetarian diet. Tragically, there has been a dramatic transition in the latter as world meat production has increased about 10 times the world population growth rate in just a few decades. I have witnessed the transition to a diet high in animal products in places as beautiful as Micronesia and sub-Saharan Africa, where diseases such as diabetes and heart disease have just begun to rear their ugly heads. This grave trend also multiplies the devastating consequences for the environment worldwide and for the countless billions of animals killed each year for food-10 billion land animals and 10 billion sea animals in the United States alone. Many of us wonder what steps we can take to make a difference in the world. Here, the answer is simple. Following a vegan diet is the first and foremost step to improve the condition of the environment, human health, and the lives of animals. Around the World Vegan Style tells you how and why.

The whole world is beginning to realize that animal agriculture-a major source of water pollution and deforestation-is one of the biggest culprits in global warming. The 2007 United Nations report shows that farmed animals are a top contributor to today's serious environmental problems, including greenhouse gases. The global increase in meat consumption also causes rates of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other diet-related illnesses to soar. If we're going to reverse the damage we've done to our health and the environment, we have to begin now. Around the World Vegan Style is a step in that direction. Patrice Green, M.D., J.D. Assistant Professor, University of Maryland School of Medicine Faculty Member, Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Fellow, American College of Legal Medicine There is just food and the land to grow that food. If we can all just realize this simple fact for one moment, and stop fighting over the land that holds the roots that support the tree that bears the fruit that feeds the child, then maybe, just maybe...peace.
