Man must get his thoughts, words and actions out of this vast moral jungle. We are not predators. We are, hopefully, more than instinctive killers and selfish brutes. Why take such a dim view of our potentialities and capabilities? - Jay Dinshah (1933-2000), Founder and President, American Vegan Society - Out of the Jungle, 1967
There is only one journey: going inside yourself. - Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)
It is only by softening and disguising dead flesh by culinary preparation, that it is rendered susceptible of mastication or digestion; and that the sight of its bloody juices and raw horror does not excite intolerable loathing and disgust. - Percy Bysshe Shelley

I think it's really beautiful and amazing that the food that heals us, nourishes us, gives us our best selves, is also the same food that heals the planet and is kind to other creatures. It just so happens to be a win-win for everyone. - Alicia Silverston, Actress, Author, The Kind Diet
We spend far more on health care, per capita, than any other society in the world, and yet two thirds of Americans are overweight...we fall prey to heart disease as often as we did thirty years ago, and the War on Cancer has been a miserable failure...these issues all come down to three things: breakfast, lunch and dinner. - T. Colin Campbell, PhD, Biochemist, Researcher, Author, The China Study
What does a person need to know about veganism/vegetarianism---the environment---the humane treatment of animals---to make it part of their life?
First of all, we need factual information about where our food comes from, who makes and regulates decisions, and what impact our food choices have on our health, the animals and the planet.
The 2nd thing we need to know then is how to go veg.
EVEN has tried to address both these issues on this site several times over in different categories. It's important enough that it bears repeating in order to bring clarity to a new frame of reference.
Efforts to achieve this change are facilitated by tapping into all the very best websites, books, magazines and videos available.
In this Resources section, we can learn everything we need to know to live healthy, cruelty-free, and meaningful veg lives.

Groundbreaking program backed by the irrefutable results from Dr. Esselstyn's 20-year study proving changes in diet and nutrition can actually cure heart disease!
Heart disease remains the leading cause of death in the United States for men and women. But, as Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., a former internationally-known surgeon, researcher and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic, explains in this book, it can be prevented, reversed, and even abolished. Dr. Esselstyn argues that conventional cardiology has failed patients by developing treatments that focus only on the symptoms of heart disease, not the cause.
