Description

Mahatma Gandhi said the greatness of a society is shown by the way it treats its animals. Compassion not excluding animals can lead to more peace because someone protecting animals will also respect the lives of fellow humans.

The global meat industry is expected to grow considerably in 2005 leading to ever more animals losing the only possession they have: their lives. Even under the best conditions (which are very rarely met), slaughter involves extreme cruelty. Reducing the demand for meat implies reducing cruelty.

This book has been written with the aim of showing that a life without meat is not only possible but brings about considerable benefits for humans, animals and nature alike: Every person stemming the meat tide is giving precious support to a better and more peaceful world.
