Item Description...
The United States is one of the sickest nations on the planet. Despite our wealth, access to educational media, natural resources, and opportunity, most Americans accept atherosclerosis, cancer, hypertension, osteoporosis, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other degenerative chronic diseases as part of the normal aging process. Unfortunately, even our traditional "modern medicine" practitioners believe this misguided and bleak picture out of ignorance. This is because in a traditional curriculum, many physicians-in-training only receive one course in nutrition---the safest, most effective, and least expensive form of chronic disease prevention available. This one course is guided by the faulty 1992 "Food Pyramid" of the American Dietetic Association (ADA), which derived from the even more dangerous "Basic Four Food Groups" of 1956. In both cases, the approval of these dietary guidelines was a political rather than a medical decision, and recent scientific evidence has shown how these guidelines keep Americans sick rather than healthy.

The Vegan Diet as Chronic Disease Prevention explores the mountain of evidence that suggests that a diet free of animal products can have radically beneficial effects on many conditions that affect vast numbers of Americans. Dr. Saunders provides an exhaustive list of references and sources in arguably the most comprehensive argument in print for the human health benefits of the vegan diet.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good info poorly presented  Aug 18, 2008
I think the problem I had with this book is that I read it immediately after having read Joel Fuhrman's Eat to live. Dr Fuhrman presented the same information (and more) in a much more engaging manner. Not to mention that Fuhrman is a practicing physician who actually "prescribes" a vegan diet to hundreds of patients/year and monitors the results. I was inspired by Fuhrman's book. This one? Not so much.
Superficial compilation of secondary sources  Mar 15, 2008
This book provides a very superficial overview of vegan nutritional issues. It cites heavily to dated secondary sources (nutrition books, encyclopedias, and journal articles, such as John McDougall's "The McDougall Program" (1990), Neal Barnard's "Food for Life" (1993), and articles in journals from the 1970s and 80s). There are few, if any, citations to primary sources or studies to support the text. If you're new to veganism and looking for an introduction to vegan issues, you may want to read this. If you want anything more in-depth or scholarly, look elsewhere.
Good resource  Feb 24, 2008
This is a well referenced resource for anyone wishing to make an informed decision about living a healthy veg lifestyle.

Plenty of information sourced from reliable research and researchers.

Just about every health condition you can think of is covered.

I think it could have been framed in a more positive tone, as the focus on disease is a bit of a downer, that being said, if you are in the nutrition / health / wellness industry it is a valauble read.

A gem!  Jan 17, 2008
This book is beyond amazing. It is so well-organized & packed full of information that I can't believe it isn't more popular! As a vegan, I have read A LOT on the subject of animal welfare & environmental damage caused by raising animals for our own human interests (mainly for food). However, I hadn't read AS MUCH on the subject of health. (Still a fair amount, but not as much in detail as this book provides.)

This is an excellent source in not only educating yourself, but for having cold, hard FACTS to back up veganism from a health standpoint when others ask. I have read articles that used circumstantial evidence or only cited other vegan sources, which truthfully, aren't very credible to the population at large. This book, however, has really great sources from all types of authors, books, lectures, medical journals, etc. It is literally one of the most researched books I have ever read, and I like that every claim has a footnote citing the source.

I agree that this book should have received a lot more publicity, and those who have not read it are MISSING OUT! It is a super-fast read, but so dense with valuable information. I am so happy I read this, and I'll be using it as a resource for years to come.
Wonderful!!!  Nov 3, 2007
This is the best vegan cookbook ever. Today I made the peanut butter cookies and my husband didn't know the difference and he has a very picky pallet. I highly reccommend this book to vegans and non-vegans alike. Happy baking!
