Reviews - What do our customers think?
This book made life on Earth as I know it make sense finally.  Aug 17, 2008
In my view, essentially Dr. Tuttle's research answers the question "Why are humans behaving so violently on Earth?" The World Peace Diet also answers the question of "What did humans eat before they invented tools and discovered fire?" He refers to humans, who we all know first lived in the tropics, as frugivorous herbivores. This is consistent with the Natural Health practioners with whom I study, and logic in my view.

After reading this book with an open mind, (keep in mind I had to get past my bad habit of criticizing), I realized the countless dollars tax payers could save just by collectively learning to think through a vegan paradigm of non-violence. This book has answered so many of my most burning questions. I feel like I can move on now to live my life with such a remarkable understanding of what's going on here!

I love how this book defines the word "veganism" as intended by the man who came up with the word in 1944. This definition is on page 27, and when you read it, regardless of what you eat presently, you will likely find yourself thinking "That's me; I am that way."
Makes one think, but goes too far.  Aug 6, 2008
Tuttle feels very strongly that veganism is the answer to many, if not all, of the world's problems and he argues passionately that all humans should adopt a vegan lifestyle. His basic thesis is fairly straight-forward: that by beginning to raise animals for food and other products, humans came to view animals as commodities to be exploited. This situation led to desensitization and a disconnection that humans have transferred to one another over the centuries and is the reason that human beings are capable of committing so many atrocities against one another.

It is a bold thesis and perhaps unique in its effort to so concisely explain why violence amongst human beings exists in the world, but it is also rife with oversights and gaps. Most of what Tuttle argues is more opinion and belief than "fact."

In a chapter on the dairy industry, Tuttle describes how cows are artificially inseminated, kept perpetually pregnant, and almost immediately separated from their calves. It is a powerful and sensational description. Tuttle goes on to argue that a cow's milk is not intended for human consumption, that it is biologically intended only for its calf and that, therefore, humans should not consume dairy products. This statement is specious. For if this logic were applied to plants, one would come to the conclusion that humans should not eat fruit or vegetables either. Of course, this would be preposterous.

Tuttle identifies many of the problems facing human beings today, but arguing that if all humans became vegans these problems would cease is going too far.

Chances are a reader who is already vegan will feel vindication after finishing this book. A reader who is vegetarian will likely feel some pang of guilt for not being vegan and contemplate taking that next step. An omnivore who reads this book is likely to be put off by its self-righteous tone, but may find it thought-provoking if he or she can get past that. A die-hard meat eater is highly unlikely to make it past page two before setting it down.
The Karma of Eating  May 17, 2008
What sets this book apart for the many fine books about veganism is that it really gets to the spiritual roots of the issue. Dr. Tuttle writes eloquently and passionately, about the karma of eating. He challenges the reader to expand their compassion to every creature on this planet, and in enacting this in our daily lives via the food we eat, we can begin to experience a taste of limitless, transcendent love. It is a book about the transformation of our consciousness, and thus the transformation of the world. He shows how food choices are not a small issue, or a mere lifestyle choice, as they are sometimes made out to be. But rather, our food choices lay the foundation for the violence and exploitation rampant in this world.

He also exposes the culture's deep aversion to looking at this issue and sheds light on why it is so difficult to get others to see the brutality that composes our cultural diet. I was finally able to make sense of why people just seem to shut down when it comes to really looking at where meat comes from. It is our culture's dirty little secret. Deep down we have guilt over it, and we deal with this by either becoming aggressively defensive ("no one is going to tell me what to eat!") or just turning away from the truth and lulling ourselves into a state of denial. When we do this, we numb our basic capacity for empathy and kindness thus creating a more violent world.

Operating from the belief that everything is interconnected, he shows how when we treat animals in barbaric, exploitative ways it lays the foundation for the other ills in society. There is no compartmentalizing. The atrocities in the slaughterhouse don't stay in the slaughterhouse. The energy of the violence and suffering ripples outward like circles in a stream. He shows how human beings who work in slaughterhouses are turned into monsters by the violent work they do all day. One can only imagine how many families are destroyed, how much alcoholism, depression, domestic violence, and suicide results from the dehumanizing work of slaughtering animals.

This is one of the best books I've read, and a must-have for anyone looking to help alleviate the suffering of the world. There is no way I can adequately represent Dr. Tuttle's beautiful, compassionate book, so just buy it and read for yourselves!
The World Peace Diet review  May 8, 2008
According to Tuttle, everything connects and stems off of our cultural and inherited belief systems, of which we were born into. The fact that we never question or test these beliefs, rather just accept them because it is easy and comforting to do so, is a core factor that he is forcing people to attempt to step out of the box and acknowledge. His desperate plea is for people to begin to recognize that what we "do unto others" is ultimately what we in turn do to ourselves as a culture. By inflicting harm, fear, forced obesity, forced pregnancy, robbing animals and their babies, forcing ill health, as well as brutal methods of confinement and killing, we are creating the stage for the exact same devastating problems to be bestowed upon ourselves as a human culture. It is a very deep and powerful message, with astounding accusations and connections, which most people would never even consider linking together on their own. However, with careful analysis and consideration, these accusations all begin to seem completely realistic and perhaps hold much truth.
It will change your life  Apr 22, 2008
This book will change your life and eating. Will Tuttle is so thorough and convincing I can't see how anybody good read this book and not go vegan. This book is so important for our world and should go hand in hand with "A New Earth" by Eckart Tolle.Sp
