Sarah Taylor, the "Vegan Next Door", gives the very good health and ethical reasons for vegetarians who are asking, " Why should I give up dairy and egg products, too?", as well as specific tips to make the change to a healthier lifestyle both easy and pleasurable.
Sarah reviews the research linking animal protein and dairy consumption to breast cancer, prostate cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis and auto-immune disease, and the ground-breaking work done by T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., Caldwell Esselstyn, M.D., and Joel Fuhrman, M.D. She describes the psychologically and physically debilitating treatment, as well as the crowded, dirty conditions which the vast majority of laying hens endure throughout their lives in factory farms, often even those labeled as "cruelty-free" or "cage-free".
For those inspired to switch to a healthier lifestyle, Sarah offers welcome information on pleasing taste buds used to dairy cheeses and milk, and issues her own 30-day vegan challenge!
