Banyen's Description: 

The completely revised edition of a seminal classic offers fresh insights into the implications of becoming vegan—for individuals, for animals, and for our fragile planet. It includes updated views on the treatment of animals in food production and other industries, the latest findings on the health benefits of a vegan diet, expanded information on phytochemicals, and a thoroughly updated food guide. This streamlined “express” version is extensive in scope, yet manageable for anyone who wants to easily understand how to construct a nutritionally balanced plant-based diet. Davis and Melina present the latest findings on:

  • using plant foods to protect against cancer, heart disease, and other chronic illnesses
  • obtaining essential protein without meat, eggs, or dairy products
  • discovering “good” fats and where to find them
  • meeting dietary needs for calcium without dairy products
  • understanding the importance of vitamin B12
  • designing balanced vegan diets for infants, children, and seniors
  • and making the most of vegan pregnancy and breast-feeding.

Being vegan is about including those who are commonly excluded, be they human animals or nonhuman animals. It’s about understanding that our choices have consequences for ourselves and beyond ourselves and recognizing that eating animals and animal products is both unnecessary and potentially harmful. Being vegan is about making choices that are a true reflection of our ethical and moral principles.

There’s no other book as informative and comprehensive as Becoming Vegan: it’s a treasure trove of facts and helpful hints and it’s sure to put you on the path of health and healing.” —Kathy Freston, author of Veganist
