I first heard of Dr. Michael Greger on the internet and watched a few videos on his not-for-profit website nutritionfacts.org. Essentially, he is a Medical Practitioner specialising in nutrition and what he likes to spend his time doing is reviewing the thousands of nutritional studies that get published year in, year out, and letting the […]

I found this collection of letters when doing a search for “veganism” in the Kindle bookshop, and it was such a nice read for me at that time! It’s a collection of letters written by people who have been vegan a while and want to address vegans who have recently switched to a gentler relationship […]

If you are vegan, and you think the world would be a better place if everyone else was vegan too, read this book.

This collection of essays by vegans from all over the world aims at reminding people that to declare yourself “an ex-vegan” is somewhat nonsensical. If being a vegan is being someone who tries to minimise the suffering they inflict on others whenever possible, then saying you’re an “ex-vegan” sort of sounds like admitting you’re deliberately […]

This is essentially a nutrition bible for anyone, not just vegans, which answers every question one might possibly have about what to eat and why. I haven’t read it cover to cover in that I read all chapters but for the ones that really don’t apply to me at all at this moment in time […]

I’ve started doing a new thing in the hope to save some money: read the free Kindle sample Amazon will wire you first, and then only when I’ve reached the end of that, if I’m still interested, order the whole book. It might improve my current situation of having downloaded too many books I’ve never […]

After this string of non-fiction books I had read, I really considered reading a work of fiction again, but for some reason I just couldn’t muster the interest and started reading another account of what’s going on in the world these days, this time focusing on the supermarket empires who distort our taste buds the […]

After reading Peter Singer’s Animal Liberation and being blown away by it some 40 years after everybody else, I thought I was craving some more practical ethics and looked up his back catalogue. I found out he recently published The Most Good You Can Do, drawing from his earlier The Life You Can Save. As Animal Liberation had, The Most Good You […]

Not on the Label: What Really Goes Into the Food on Your Plate by Felicity Lawrence Vegan Sidekick Volume 1 Adult Edition by Richard Watts L’Animal est une personne de Franz-Olivier Giesbert

As it did for many other readers, Animal Liberation opened a new realm of consciousness for me. Its absolute rationality is of course what makes it irresistibly enticing. Anti-speciesism is not wishy-washy emotions, or even sensible compassion, but quite simply one of the most rational strands of ethics, one that we humans have a duty to instil into […]
