In the News: Turkey Day 2009: For Vegetarians, Meat-Eaters, and Everyone in Between

Week of November 23, 2009

News Item: This week while millions of Americans are preparing to feast on turkey and a host of side dishes and desserts (many of which are made with animal products), we provide you with a list of book and video titles that are essentially turkey-free. Read about vegetarianism, animal rights and food, and the human diet. (We’ve thrown in a few titles on the meat industry, though, just to keep things balanced.) Enjoy!

  1. Helen Laurence says:

    How about:

    The omnivore’s dilemma : a natural history of four meals
    Author: Pollan, Michael
    Published: New York : Penguin Press, 2006.
    GT2850 .P65 2006

    (This one is in Jupiter.) The subject headings don’t include vegetarianism, and this book is by no means a veggie screed, but it is well balanced and an essential read for *-vores of all persuasons.

  2. George Maris says:

    I’m glad to have been one of those people, who pay mind to the subjects that are about vegetarians. The lives of animals and the politics that follows.Although it seemed impossible at one time, vegetarians are making progress in health related issues.
