Praise for Peter Cox and You Don't Need Meat
"I suspect he may be some kind of genius." -- The Sunday Times (London)
"Peter Cox is a man with a lot of enemies among butchers but quite a few friends among pop stars." -- Yorkshire Post (U.K.)
"Explosive...If you've ever thought twice about the contents of the burger you're eating of felt unease when the latest meat-related disease hogs the headlines--then you should buy this book....One of the most thought-provoking tomes you may read this year...Do yourself a favor and buy this book now." -- Birmingham Post (U.K.)
"With passion, perspective, wit, and clarity, Peter Cox challenges us to reevaluate the role--and true costs--of traditional, meat-centered diets. You Don' t Need Meat presents a powerful, readable case for a life-affirming meat-free future." -- Michael Klaper, M.D., Director, Institute of Nutrition Education and Research, Manhattan Beach, California
"A must for anyone who is hovering morally about whether to give up meat." -- Fitness (U.K.)
"Cox's argment is riveting; his conclusions utterly disturbing." -- Elle (U.K.)
"By dealing not with opinions, hyptheses, or calculated guesses, but in facts, Cox's book makes for compelling, incisive reading....Crucial."-- City Limits (London)
"You Don't Need Meat gives readers ability to join Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi, Leonardo da Vinci, and other vegetarians who have recognized the profound advantages of vegetarianism." -- David Perlmutter, M.D., author of BrainRecovery.com
You Don't Need Meat was first published in the United Kingdom, where it quickly became a runaway Number 1 bestseller. Written with a charming mixture of science, humor, and ethics, this completely revised and updated edition will give you all the facts you need about the meat you eat---both from a humane perspective and as a basis for getting and maintaining a healthy body.
You Don't Need Meat dishes the dirt on some nasty news, including
--Everything They Don't Want You to Know---"They" being the agribusinesses, corporate fast-food chains, advertisers, lobbyists for the meat industry, and other players in the vastly profitable meat market that the media peddles to us and our children night and day.
--Apocalypse Cow---How Mad Cow Disease, and the lies that have swirled around government efforts to conceal the facts from the public, has endangered our food supply worldwide.
--Health Risks---What scientists don't know can hurt you---for example, are we really so sure that bovine leukemia can't cross the species barrier?
These and many other under-publicized and controversial questions are addressed here head-on in a style that is refreshingly cheerful and entertaining. Peter Cox gives us all a great deal of vital food for thought.
