The book is China Study, by T. Colin Campbell, PhD. It's a $25 book, but you can get it from Earthsave at a discount for $22 postpaid. Go to http://www.earthsave.org/storefront.htm. Or you can find it in most bookstores and at local Earthsave meetings. Or ask me to bring you a copy to a Meetup.

Peace, Don

Veg Talking Points

Here?s a new agenda for our next Baltimore Veg Meetup Discussion Group gathering:

Some of our members have said that they would like to be more adept at handling the questions and challenges (with reference to their lifestyle) that sometimes come their way. So we will devote a whole Meetup session at the Yabba Pot to looking at some of the key talking points on the benefits of veg and vegan lifestyles.

To which quotes or studies do you like to point to support the claims that veg*ns live longer and avoid the chronic diseases that kill most Americans? Do you know the key differences in body design between humans and true carnivores? Do you know which foods are eaten by the species to which we are most closely related?

How do you respond when someone says that it?s perfectly natural for certain species to eat other species, and that we veg*ns are out of touch with the real world, the natural world? And what about the lifestyle of the early Native Americans? Doesn?t their example provide a good eco-friendly role models for us? And aren?t the Eskimos healthy, despite the fact that they eat a diet of nearly all animal flesh?

Aren?t we doing animals a favor by raising them for food, when they might not otherwise even exist? And wouldn?t we have a terrible problem with animal overpopulation if we didn?t eat them?

What evidence can you show people to prove that the common chronic diseases that kill Americans aren?t caused primarily by bad genes, or by air pollution, or by exposure to electronic fields?

What makes you so certain that the reports and recommendations of government and other major institutional health agencies are attuned more to the bottom lines of big business than to the needs of the consumer? And if veg*n was clearly healthier for us, wouldn?t that be more widely announced by the media?

Most of the world?s greatest athletes eat (or ate) meat. Doesn?t that prove that we are natural meat eaters? What do you tell someone who says that you will never convince everyone to go vegetarian?

What do we tell those who justify meat eating by saying that the creator gave us dominion over animals, or that animals have no souls? How do we respond to those who say that they just don?t have the time to learn how to cook and eat in a new way?

Maybe you don?t want to be a veg*n activist, but would like to have some of theses questions answered for your own needs or curiosity. Feel free to join us at on November 28th at 7 pm.

I?ll start the ball rolling at the meeting by doing a brief presentation, an overview of some of the most compelling reasons to consider veg*n. Then we will open it up to questions and allow others to briefly present information, if they like.

What are some of the questions you have difficulty answering? Please bring a list, and we?ll see if we can help you come to a better understanding.

You may register to attend this discussion by going to http://vegan.meetup.com/29/calendar/6614279/. Join us if you can!

Peace, Don Robertson
