5.0 out of 5 stars This is a good one! Aug. 13 2007
By Caryn Pierce - Published on
I have been a lifelong vegetarian, and this is by far the best collection of the relevant information I have seen. It is comprehensive in its scope, including practical tips on moving toward a plant-based diet as well as facts about how food choices impact health, world hunger, animals, and the environment. It is attractive and well-organized, easy to read. All information presented has been backed up by scientific research. No sensational claims are made (I appreciate that). One fun feature includes a list of famous people, past and present who are vegetarian, and in general I would say it has a light-hearted feel.

5.0 out of 5 stars An informed and informative, inspired and inspiring read Dec 2 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Medical studies and the personal experiences of hundreds of thousands of people have demonstrated that plant-based diets can prevent or improve the conditions of high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, obesity, and osteoporosis. Moreover, plant-based diets avoid such meat-borne diseases as E. coli infections and outbreaks that seem to be constantly in the news today. Additionally, turning to plant-based diets has a positive effect on such environmental issues as global warming, rainforest depletion, animal abuse, and world-wide hunger. "The Vegetarian Solution" by Stewart Rose (vice president of the non-profit Vegetarians of Washington, the largest regional vegetarian organization in the United States) provides up-to-date information documenting the nutritional benefits of a plant-based diet for children, athletes, and senior citizens; preventing and improving a wide variety of medical illnesses; how plant-based diets require fewer natural resources than meat-based diets; and a wealth of advice and suggestions on making a transition to a plant-based diet. An informed and informative, inspired and inspiring read for anyone contemplating changing over to a plant-based diet which entails giving up meat and meat products in their meals, "The Vegetarian Solution" is highly recommended and thoroughly 'user friendly' read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Vegetarian Solution Aug. 17 2007
By Miss Icy - Published on
A very browsable brook, well-written, with interesting and easily understandable graphics that support key points. I'm not a vegetarian, but this book sure is valuable in encouraging me to incorporate even more whole, fresh produce into my diet. In every chapter, I learned something new about physiology and nutrition and the benefits of a plant-based diet. This book is good for anyone interested in improving their health and the health of our society and environment as a whole.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very well written and fun. Sept. 24 2013

I read this book in the library just by chance and i'm now going to buy it for myself. I've read quite a few books on vegetarianism and there are some excellent ones out there but some tend to be so heavy and instill a sense of fear that they don't really give you any sense of joy or fun. Eating and food should be fun and being vegetarian can one of the funnest things when it's done properly. The Vegetarian Solution tends to be positive and uplifting and the tone of the book is really friendly. I liked the way the book goes through various topics linked to the subject: from the natural diet for humans, cancer, heart disease all the way to the environmental implications of diet and religion. There were some interesting studies in here that i had never seen before. Scientifically the book is sound and quite thorough and is written in a very clear and concise way: it also includes some very good diagrams. Overall this is a very good general reference book that could prove very useful for new veggies or seasoned ones that want to restudy some topic. I would definitely recommend this book.
