Vegetarianism is gaining popularity and a mainstream following in the Western world like never before. Historically only practiced among certain Hindu castes in India for religious reasons, vegetarianism is now being advocated as a means to improve personal health, show compassion towards animals, and reduce carbon emissions. It is being promoted by the political left, animal rights groups like PETA, environmentalists, Hindu religious sects, New Age groups, and Hollywood celebrities. Although mainstream academia and media continue to highlight all the positives of maintaining a vegetarian diet, none of the arguments opposed to Vegetarianism are properly or thoroughly presented. Some in academia, government, and the media have even proposed that laws and taxes should be enforced to limit people's freedom and ability to eat meat. Sonny Desai debunks many of the myths and believes associated with the virtues of Vegetarianism, and proposes the idea that a vegetarian diet may not be as healthy and ethical as people are led to believe. In "The Vegetarian Agenda: The Real Reason behind the Promotion and Popularization of the Meatless Diet", Desai describes in detail many facts about vegetarianism which have been hidden from the public. He explains how vegetarianism's practice among its majority Hindu population may have contributed to India's continual subjugation by foreign rulers, and how vegetarianism may have contributed to the creation of the brutal Hindu caste system. He describes how the Indian Hindu immigrants in the West, and their academic and economic success, may be attributed to their vegetarian diet, and why religion is being used to enforce it upon them. Desai also explains the psychological and physiological effects vegetarian diets have on the human mind and body, and how by understanding it people can freely choose what to eat and not eat. Most importantly, he describes how vegetarianism is being used as a means of mind control by social engineers who would like to recreate humanity to be able to easily adapt to the new science based technological society.

Vegetarianism has been practiced in the United States since the country's founding, yet the early years of the movement have been woefully misunderstood and understudied. Through the Civil War, the vegetarian movement focused on social and political reform, but by the late nineteenth century, the movement became a path for personal strength and success in a newly individualistic, consumption-driven economy. This development led to greater expansion and acceptance of vegetarianism in mainstream society. So argues Adam D. Shprintzen in his lively history of early American vegetarianism and social reform. From Bible Christians to Grahamites, the American Vegetarian Society to the Battle Creek Sanitarium, Shprintzen explores the diverse proponents of reform-motivated vegetarianism and explains how each of these groups used diet as a response to changing social and political conditions. By examining the advocates of vegetarianism, including institutions, organizations, activists, and publications, Shprintzen explores how an idea grew into a nationwide community united not only by diet but also by broader goals of social reform.
The true story of an ordinary woman living an extraordinary existence all over the world. “Gelman doesn’t just observe the cultures she visits, she participates in them, becoming emotionally involved in the people’s lives. This is an amazing travelogue.” —Booklist At the age of forty-eight, on the verge of a divorce, Rita Golden Gelman left an elegant life in L.A. to follow her dream of travelling the world, connecting with people in cultures all over the globe. In 1986, Rita sold her possessions and became a nomad, living in a Zapotec village in Mexico, sleeping with sea lions on the Galapagos Islands, and residing everywhere from thatched huts to regal palaces. She has observed orangutans in the rain forest of Borneo, visited trance healers and dens of black magic, and cooked with women on fires all over the world. Rita’s example encourages us all to dust off our dreams and rediscover the joy, the exuberance, and the hidden spirit that so many of us bury when we become adults.

Approximately 12 million U.S. citizens consider themselves vegetarians, and 13.5 percent of all U.S. households claim to have at least one family member practicing some form of vegetarianism. In the past 30 years, scientific endeavors in the area of vegetarian nutrition have progressively shifted from investigating dietary concerns held by nutritionists and other health professionals to creative solutions for various medical conditions and preventive approaches to chronic diseases. Although professional interest in vegetarian nutrition has now reached unprecedented levels, scientific knowledge regarding vegetarian diets and their positive effects on human health is far from complete. Vegetarian Nutrition provides data to explain the preventive role of vegetarian diets for many chronic diseases such as heart disease and some types of cancers while including recommendations and guidelines for vegetarians and those prescribed vegetarian diets. Based on scientific sources and research, and presenting information in both tabular and prose formats, the book details various diet regimens, health concerns, and energy expenditure. This handbook is written for academic and clinical nutritionists, dieticians, and graduate students in nutrition ad public health, with each chapter rendering a scholarly review of the particular topic. While considering both health benefits and nutritional concerns Vegetarian Nutrition addresses such topics as chronic disease prevention; adequacy of the diet for children, in pregnancy, lactation, and for the aging population; recommendations for a healthy vegetarian diet; and global perspectives.
