Robbins, author of the classic Diet
for a New America, believes that plant-based nutrition and particularly
vegan diets (free of meat, milk, and eggs) lead to long life and good
health. Citing statistics, research studies, and selected quotes that
extol the benefits of such diets, he also argues that animal products
are responsible for such diseases as obesity, heart disease, high blood
pressure, and cancer. Robbins deplores the inadequate sanitation and
inspection in meat-processing plants and argues that many of the illnesses
and stomach ailments that people complain about result from animal agriculture
and the pathogens it introduces into our bodies. He also raises concerns
about the dangers of fad diets that advocate high carbohydrates, high
protein, or high fat. Those who want to know more about vegan diets
will gain many insights from his provocative book. -- Irwin Weintraub,
