Please Don't Eat the Animals: All the Reasons You Need to Be a Vegetarian is an exciting and provocative new book on the universal benefits of being a vegetarian. Authors Horsman and Flowers detail the many reasons for the burgeoning movement toward a plant-based diet in four short, interesting, easy-to-digest sections: Health Nowhere is the appeal of vegetarianism reflected more than in health issues. Scientists and doctors have begun drawing the connection between heavily meat-laden diets and the most serious health problems. Environment Livestock farming accounts for over half of both fresh water and ocean pollution. It significantly effects air pollution, deforestation especially of rain forests and the decimation of wildlife populations. Animal Welfare Animal welfare issues have gained prominence in recent years. Animal rights/ethics courses have emerged on university campuses, even in law schools. Please Don't Eat The Animals reveals the plight of animals on factory farms, a sad and troubling picture indeed. Religious and Spiritual Fresh and original, this section points to the fact that Christianity, Judaism, and Islam have strong injunctions against cruelty to animals. All Hindus are vegetarians. Mohammed said, "Whoever is kind to the creatures of God is kind to himself." And, according to the Buddha, "The eating of meat extinguishes the great seed of compassion."
