    Environmental Benefits of Vegetarianism


    Vegetarian Nutrition

    Diet for a New America is considered by many to be the bible of vegetarianism because it's both incredibly comprehensive and deeply moving. While some vegetarian books cover only factory farming, or health & nutrition, or the environmental benefits of vegetarian diets, Robbins covers all three. What's more, the content has been meticulously researched, with Robbins offering dozens of pages of complete footnotes. If you're looking for a book with solid, hard proof of how vegetarians easily get plenty of protein, why meat is the #1 killer in the U.S., or how badly farm animals are treated, you won't do better than this volume. Diet for a New America has been credited with launching the second wave of vegetarianism in the U.S. when it was published (and nominated for a Pulitzer) in 1987. It's still timely today. If you read one book in your life, read this one. Read excerpt or $2.00

    The McDougall Program. Dr. McDougall ran an amazingly successful 12-day in-patient vegetarian program at the St. Helena Hospital in Deer Park, California. Participants were able to eliminate or drastically reduce insulin and high blood pressure medicines almost immediately. This book shows how to do it without going to the clinic. Convincingly presents the case for the health benefits of a vegetarian diet from the viewpoint of a trained medical professional. Contains over 130 recipes. Probably the best of all the McDougall Books. Read excerpt or $1.99

    The McDougall Plan. Dr. John McDougall is the foremost expert on vegetarian nutrition, being the first to eloquently publicize the relationship between meat & disease, and plants & health. This debut effort received only scant attention when published in 1984, but it formed much of the inspiration for the nutrition section of John Robbins' runaway bestseller Diet for a New America. Here McDougall proves conclusively that it's easy to get plentiful protein by eating any plant food, even without "protein combining". He also conclusively demonstrates the hazards of high fat, high protein diets, and the advantages of vegetarian diets, backed up with solid references to the medical literature. Never dry, and with exceptionally informative charts, you'll wish this book were required reading for the nutritional establishment. $3.49

    The McDougall Program for Women: What every woman needs to know to be healthy for life. Dr. John McDougall has long been at the forefront of women's health care. First to publish a groundbreaking article showing the benefits of a low-fat diet for women with breast cancer in 1983, he continues to lecture regularly on women's health issues and has cared for tens of thousands of women who have benefited dramatically from his advice. Now he arms women with the facts needed to achieve a lifetime of good health in his timely, important, comprehensive new book, explaining approaches to breast cancer, osteoporosis, weight loss, and a host of other issues. McDougall emphasizes the importance of preventing disease before it develops, but also offers practical advice on treating existing conditions. Unfortunately, you probably won't get honest and informed McDougall-style advice from your own doctor, even though McDougall's positions are backed up by a mountain of references to scientific literature. $23.81

    McDougall's Medicine: A Challenging Second Opinion. Dr. McDougall examines the eight most common degenerative diseases in the U.S., and shows how they're all caused by meat consumption, and prevented or treated with a vegetarian diet. Hard-hitting, eye-opening, and intensely motivational. $8.77
