Vegan Book Club Series

  • Apr 6, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Book Club #8: "Vegan Myth, Vegan Truth: Obliterating Rumors and Lies About the Earth-Saving Diet," John McCabe

"As usual John puts together another very informative and useful book. It's a great read full of amazing statistics. One of the nice things about this book is you can pick it up and start reading on any page for a few minutes here and there and get great information that stands on it's own. I would recommend this to anyone looking to improve their health, and most certainly to vegans that are forever having to explain or defend their diet."

Hugh Cruickshank, owner of Raw-Foods-Diet-Center.com


($12.00-$14.00 new, from Amazon.com)
