Transition to Vegetarianism: An Evolutionary Step

Rudolph Ballentine, Author, Patrick C. Pietroni, Foreword by Himalayan Institute Press $15.95 (307p) ISBN 978-0-89389-104-6
As Americans become increasingly aware of the health hazards posed by a traditional meat-and-potatoes diet, vegetarianism becomes less esoteric and more appealing. The author of Diet and Nutrition: A Holistic Approach here presents information and arguments on how and why one should switch to a vegetarian diet. A medical doctor, Ballentine warns against making the transition too quickly and advocates a gradual withdrawal from red meat, poultry and fish, combined with a gradual increase in other sources of proteins and vitamins. Supported with footnotes and documentation, this book will make vegetarians even more grateful to have changed and may persuade would-be vegetarians to persevere, but it's doubtful whether it will stop meateaters from having another burger.
