One of my favorite blogs reviews a new book from Lierre Keith called The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice, and Sustainability.
"The book takes a hard, scientific look at various arguments for vegetarianism and veganism. It also examines many of the moral and ethical arguments for this lifestyle, and asks whether a vegetarian diet is truly consistent with those values. The book is also about a personal journey for the author, who was herself a vegan for many years, and ran into serious health problems on account of this. Finally, it is a call to arms, to defend the planet and the environment, against those who would give it no quarter."
