A Quote by Sol Luckman on pacifism, freedom, free will, free thought, free love, free ride, freebie, vegetarian, fruitarian, breatharian, eternal life, salvation, vegan, nature, earth, mother earth, harmony, commune, community, hippy, cult, dead head, gr

The Folarians (such was their name) were a pacifistic people who believed in free will, free thought, free love, free land, free living, free rides, freeloading and freebies of all kinds. Bitter enemies of the Vegetarians, the Fruitarians (who lived exclusively on raw fruit), the Pietarians (or “New Fruitarians,” as they were sometimes called, who ate only raw fruit pies) and the Breatharians (who subsisted on air alone), the Folarians promoted a doctrine wherein eternal life was achieved by abstaining from all food sources save foliage—thus their name. Moreover, this foliage—whether leaves, stems or flowers—must already have fallen to the ground of its own accord. This way, eating only nature’s leftovers, the Folarians lived in perfect harmony with Mother Earth.

A Quote by Pascal Imperato on vegetarian and diet

The National Dairy Council, with the government's permission, (is still) the largest and most important provider of nutrition education in the country... That the Diary Council can still convincingly promote saturated fat and cholesterol-rich diets reflects ... the credibility it built in the days before the link between these elements and atherosclerosis was known.  [Dr. Pascal Imperato from New York is who John is quoting here.]

You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit.  If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I'll buy you a new car.

A Quote by Joel Fuhrman on child, health, pregnancy, nutrition, plant-based, vegan, vegetarian, prevention, cancer, diabetes, and wellness

Yesterday I saw a child wearing a T-shirt that said, "If you love me, don't feed me junk food."  I was delighted to see this, but I also know how difficult it can be to feed our children well, particularly when the foods that are most convenient and the most heavily advertised are often the ones we should avoid.  Joel Fuhrman's new book is a blessing, because it makes it so much easier.  It is excellent, and full of clarity, wisdom, and guidance you can trust.  It can indeed give you the power to shape your child's health destiny - John Robbins

A Quote by Joel Fuhrman on children, pregnancy, health, nutrition, plant-based, vegan, and vegetarian

Every day a parent asks, "When is your pediatric nutrition book coming out?"  Parents are eager for information.  They don't know what to feed their kids.  They know that the diet of their household and of their community are unhealthy, but they don't know what to do.  They are stumped because they want to make changes, but they don't know how to get their kids to like healthy foods.  This book has the answers.  Not only will it explain what a healthy diet is, it will show you how to implement the best diet for your children in such a way that they will love it, eat it, and adopt a healthy approach to nutrition that will last a lifetime.

American children are the heaviest worldwide, and they are getting heavier at a faster rate than other children around the globe.  This spread of obesity foreshadows an explosion in degenerative diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer waiting to erupt in our children's future.  Together we can stop this tragedy from ever happening.

A Quote by Peter Singer on habits, vegan, animal rights, vegetarian, rationalization, ethics of eating, bias, and utilitarianism

As a matter of strict logic, perhaps, there is no contradiction in taking an interest in animals on both compassionate and gastronomic grounds. If a person is opposed to the infliction of suffering on animals, but not to the painless killing of animals, he could consistently eat animals that had lived free of all suffering and been instantly, painlessly slaughtered. Yet practically and psychologically it is impossible to be consistent in one's concern for nonhuman animals while continuing to dine on them. If we are prepared to take the life of another being merely in order to satisfy our taste for a particular type of food, then that being is no more than a means to our end. In time we will come to regard pigs, cattle, and chickens as things for us to use, no matter how strong our compassion may be; and when we find that to continue to obtain supplies of the bodies of these animals at a price we are able to pay it is necessary to change their living conditions a little, we will be unlikely to regard these changes too critically. The factory farm is nothing more than the application of technology to the idea that animals are means to our ends. Our eating habits are dear to us and not easily altered. We have a strong interest in convincing ourselves that our concern for other animals does not require us to stop eating them. No one in the habit of eating an animal can be completely without bias in judging whether the conditions in which that animal is reared caused suffering.
