Summary:

We've been told that a vegetarian diet can feed the hungry, honor the animals, and save the planet. Lierre Keith believed in that plant-based diet and spent twenty years as a vegan. But in The Vegetarian Myth, she argues that we've been led astray - not by our longings for a just and sustainable world, but by our ignorance.



The truth is that agriculture is a relentless assault against the planet, and more of the same won't save us. In service to annual grains, humans have devastated prairies and forests, driven countless species extinct, altered the climate, and destroyed the topsoil - the basis of life itself. Keith argues that if we are to save this planet, our food must be an act of profound and abiding repair: it must come from inside living communities, not be imposed across them.



Part memoir, part nutritional primer, and part political manifesto, The Vegetarian Myth will challenge everything you thought you knew about food politics.



Lierre Keith's book is beyond fantastic.

-Dr. Michael Eades, author of Protein Power



This book saved my life. Not only does The Vegetarian Myth make clear how we should be eating, but also how the dominant food system is killing the planet. This necessary book challenges many of the destructive myths we live by and offers us a way back into our bodies, and back into the fight to save the planet.

-Derrick Jensen, author of Endgame and A Language Older Than Words



Everyone interested in healthy eating should be grateful to Lierre Keith.

-Sally Fallon Morell, President, The Weston A. Price Foundation



Whether you are a vegan, vegetarian, or never gave up meat at all, you will benefit from this author''s painful mistakes and her laser-like focus on the path to a sane diet and all that it entails.

    I listened to this book to get an insight into why, after being a Vegan for 20 years, Lierre Keith decided to change her diet. A very interesting listen - 'Something has to die for something to live'.
