Diet Change for our future and that of our planet

1. "Diet for a New America", by John Robbins.

Robbins covers factory farming, health & nutrition, and the environmental benefits of vegetarian diets. The content has been meticulously researched, with Robbins offering dozens of pages of 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.

2. "The China Study", by T. Colin Campbell, PhD and Thomas M. Campbell II.

Quoting David Klein, Publisher/Editor of Living Nutrition Magazine; "The China Study is the most important book on nutrition and health to come out in the last 75 years. Everyone should read it, and it should be the model for all nutritional programs taught at universities. The reading is engrossing if not astounding. The science is conclusive. Dr. Campbell's integrity and commitment to truthful nutrition education shine through.

3. Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI)

has been a strong advocate for nutrition and health, food safety, alcohol policy, and sound science since 1971. CSP is a consumer advocacy organization whose twin missions are to conduct innovative research and advocacy programs in health and nutrition, and to provide consumers with current, useful information about their health and well-being.

4. The International Vegetarian Union (IVU), founded in 1908 when the first World Vegetarian Congress was held in Dresden, Germany. The idea for IVU came from the French Vegetarian Society; the first Congress was organized internationally by the British Society. Since then a series of World Congresses have been held all around the world. This is a non-profit organization that can be used to find some unique vegetarian recipes for those seeking to enjoy their vegetarian diet choices. They can be found at

A great website run by a group of bona fide climatologists. They take topical subjects and analyze them effectively on a peer reviewed basis. More current than the IPCC website and less technical.

Greenpeace states: We 'bear witness' to environmental destruction in a peaceful, non-violent manner. We use non-violent confrontation to raise the level and quality of public debate. In exposing threats to the environment and finding solutions we have no permanent allies or adversaries. We ensure our financial independence from political or commercial interests. We seek solutions for, and promote open, informed debate about society's environmental choices.

The best-case scenario he was given was a "possible" 3-year life extension with treatment (Chemo & radiation). This book was written 8 years after he received that news. He gives new interesting insight that reveals the great difference between the medical community's definitions of common English words (diagnosis) and our traditional understanding of those words.
