Any time Jane and I mention that we are now vegan, the invariable question we get is “why?” I stumbled upon this segment from a book I have yet to read. But really, this says it all.
“It is increasingly obvious that environmentally sustainable solutions to world hunger can only emerge as people eat more plant foods and fewer animal products. To me it is deeply moving that the same food choices that give us the best chance to eliminate world hunger are also those that take the least toll on the environment, contribute the most to our long-term health, are the safest, and are also, far and away, the most compassionate towards our fellow creatures.”
John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America
