Praise for Peter Cox and You Don't Need Meat.

Praise for Peter Cox and You Don't Need Meat. With passion, perspective, wit, and clarity, Peter Cox challenges us to reevaluate the role-and the true costs-of traditional, meat-centered diets. - Michael Klaper, .

You Don't Need Meat book. Cox hits all of the major non-religious reasons not to eat meat, which I categorize as roughly tripartite, with two subcategories in each: 1. Health: a. The problem of infectious disease b. The problem of chronic disease 2. Environment: a. The problem of resource inefficiency b. The problem of pollution 3. Ethics: a. The problem of death b. The problem of suffering.

You’ll be shocked to learn how much information is convoluted through advertising and the leverage of businesses that profit from animal agriculture. This book unearths information that everyone should be taught, beginning with the first nutrition lesson in grade school.

Comments to eBook You Don't Need Meat
Slowly writer
All meat eaters should read this...It is convincing with all the studies he sights...A bit wordy but clearly makes his point...Meat and all animal products are NOT healthy and are not needed..More so they are very unhealthy for the eater and the environment...I wish everyone woul read this book...A bit dated and wordy but for the ignorant meat eater it could be eye opening if read carefully with an open mind...Unfortunately,those are rare qualities these days...

For the past few years, I have avoided red meat for ethical reasons. I've recently been considering taking that extra step, and this is the book that just might do it for me. A great, easy readable primer on veganism - bringing up ideas and issues that I never gave great thought to before: ie: health benefits to veganism, environmental issues regarding the meat industry and anthropological arguments that we may indeed be a vegetarian species to begin with. Not bad for one book! A definite positive!

Peter Cox was the first CEO of the Vegetarian Society in England, and has authored/coauthored the books Lifepoints,LifePoints Cookbook: The Power of Positive Nutrition (LifePoints),Linda McCartney's Home Cooking,Light Lunches, etc. He wrote in the Preface to this 2002 edition, "This little book has had an interesting evolution. An instant bestseller when it was published in Britain all of fifteen years ago, it was less than half the size of the volume you now hold in your hands... Since Britain is guilty of unleashing such dubious delights as beef eating and Mad Cow Disase on the world, please consider this book as one Brit's way of saying 'Sorry!'" (Pg. xiii)

He observes, "a meat-free diet... [is] much closer to the kind of natural food that we've always eaten, and that our bodies have always been used to. In evolutionary terms, the meat we eat today is a NEW food for us, which means that we're actually conducting a huge experiment on our own bodies. And ... the results don't look good at all." (Pg. 40)

He points out, "If you have a companion animal, you'll know that he or she has a personality, probably quite a strong one. Actually, ALL animals have individual personalities; it's just that most of us never have the chance to get to know them." (Pg. 112) Later, he adds, "After all, if you like animals, one of the nicest things you can do for them is not to eat them." (Pg. 148)

He argues, "The difficult thing with meat is that, just like tobacco and some other drugs, although you may not enjoy it at the beginning, your taste buds get hooked on its fatty, salty flavor quite quickly... It isn't so strange, then, that when young humans are fed animal flesh, they also become accustomed to the taste of it, and grow up believing that large quantities of it are an indispensable part of their diet. However, what has really happened is that we have been 'taught' to eat meat, taught to regard its taste as palatable, and taught to consider it ... as a perfectly normal part of our diet." (Pg. 268) He suggests, "Most children are naturally vegetarian, especially so if they have realized that the meat on their plates is essentially a dead animal. Because they empathize so strongly with animals... they cannot easily bear the transition from 'friend' to 'food.'" (Pg. 317)

Cox's book (which also contains a fascinating history of Mad Cow Disease, by the way) will be of great interest to vegetarians, vegans, animal lovers, and other progressive "thinkers" and "doers."
Leceri
'You Don't Need Meat' by Peter Cox is an engaging look at the dangers of eating meat, written by a strict vegan who has been living a vegetarian lifestyle since he was a young boy. Mr. Cox has written a book that is chock full of extensive research to prove his main point that if you eat meat (the more the deadlier) you are walking a tightrope to a short(er) life full of danger and risk. The author shows through numerous facts, figures, tables, and graphs how meat correlates directly with shorter lifespans, and he spends much of the book defending the vegetarian/vegan way of life. Spending nearly as much time discussing the dangers of meat, Peter Cox explains over and over again that eating a vegetarian diet not only is healthier, but it's SAFE to do, proving that the old addage that meat is a NECESSARY part of ones diet and lifestyle is simply untrue.

Coming in at over 350+ pages, this book is at times long-winded but you get the sense that this is an individual who deeply feels for what he is writing and isn't just trying to boost his ego or control the masses for some wrongful purpose.

For anyone that eats meat or is considering the vegetarian way of life, this is a great read to help you realize if nothing else that cutting back on red meat in ones diet is a very healthy choice to make. Since human beings ARE born with incisors I don't believe in a 100% vegetarian lifestyle (it's quite clear that the human brain evolved quicker by eating meat), but certain meats such as red meat, veal, pork, etc can easily be removed from our diets. I don't find that the author has much firepower at all when it comes to chicken and fish, but animal cruelty is always an argument that can be used and used effectively to sway people to vegetarianism.

The meat processing industry has always been a nasty one since things have been taken over by capitalism, and this book will make you sick to your stomach if this is your first look at how animals and employees of the companies that butches these animals are treated. Like most of the world, the rich are made that way by riding the backs of the poor and weak and this proves that fact yet again.

After reading this book I admit that I started eating meat less and I think more about what I put in my mouth before I eat it. I try to get more vegetables in my body and I enjoy other foods other than meat more than I used to. I think this alone would make the author happy as any change for the good is a change in the right direction.
