The Veggie Myth
What we eat is destroying both our bodies and the planet, according to author Lierre Keith, a recovering twenty-year vegan.
While she passionately opposes factory farming of animals, she maintains that humans require nutrient-dense animal foods for good health.
A grain-based diet is the basis for degenerative diseases we take for granted (diabetes, cancer, heart disease) - diseases of civilization.
Annual grain production is destroying topsoil and creating deserts on a planetary scale. Lierre urges the restoration of perennial polycultures for longterm sustainability.
