A NEW LOOK AT VEGETARIANISM
A New Look at Vegetarianism: Its Positive Effects on Health and Disease Control - Sukhraj S. Dhillon

"A New Look at VEGETARIANISM" contains various aspects of plant-based, or meatless, diets. It provides not only economical, cultural, biological and evolutionary viewpoints of vegetarian diets but also modern perspectives on health promotion and disease prevention. Vegetarians in general and vegans in particular should be concerned about balanced nutrition. Their children may require special attention to raise a healthy vegetarian family.

The material is presented succinctly, with good use of tables and pictures, and is referenced appropriately. In Chapter-1, vegetarian diets are classified as lacto-vegetarian, ovo-vegetarian, lacto-ovo-vegetarian, or vegan, respectively, if they include dairy products, eggs, both dairy products and eggs, or no animal products at all. Lacto-ovo- or lacto-vegetarians, diets can be followed without much concern about nutrition even in growing children, whereas children who are vegans may require special attention and may have slower growth even if they are in good health. However, appropriately planned vegan or lacto-ovo-vegetarian diets can be nutritionally adequate. There is concern about the adequacy of vitamin B12 and D in vegans in general, but these needs can be met by food fortification. This book helps with all the concerns vegetarians have about balanced nutrition.

In Chapter-4 health-promoting phytochemicals (beyond the traditional nutrients) provide information about the food and herbal sources that can be used against cancer, heart problems, and even to live-longer. Whether phytochemicals or otherwise, the book recommends that whole foods rather than juices and supplements be consumed for the best protection against disease or even irregularity.

The discussion of vegetarian diets in relation to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines and disease-specific guidelines show overlap with vegetarian eating patterns. For heart disease, obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and cancer both of these recommend eating unrefined grains, fruits, and vegetables and the reduction of the intake of saturated fat and cholesterol (present in all animal products but not in plants). "The current dietary guidelines suggest that diets rich in plant foods with small or minimal amounts of animal foods may be the remedy for diseases related to modern life-style.'' Dietary guidelines for vegetarians could be developed with the aim of promoting the consumption of a wide variety and abundance of plant foods; primarily unrefined and minimally processed plant foods; optional dairy products, eggs, or both; and a generous amount of water and other fluids.

There are historical references to "vegetarianism" as a religious practice in the East and John Harvey Kellogg in the West, a 20th-century Seventh-Day Adventist, who was trained as a physician and operated a Seventh-Day Adventist Sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan. He developed meat substitutes and other vegetarian health foods, including the breakfast cereals that have immortalized the family name worldwide.

The book includes appendices: Quiz on myth and reality of vegetarianism, Nutritionally balanced vegetarian menus, and Vegetarian diet recipes.

The overall impression the book leaves is that vegetarian diets are safe, palatable, healthy, and nutritionally sound.

Vegetarianism and Christianity: Why Not?


Have been a vegetarian for many moons and I still stay wondering how come the Christian crowds managed to grow this fully blown negativity towards the diet, its carriers and the constant doubt about its health benefits regardless of the constant scientific health proves researchers keep revealing.

Somebody recently told me: „Did you know that our Saint Sava, a patron Orthodox Christian Saint of Belgrade was a vegan?“ He was a vegan and none would ever tell us (Christians) about it, yet if I say „vegetarian or vegan“ I seam to be instantly hitting a wall of disapproval, shock or worry.

Conscious Living and Listening to your soul

The Laika Theatre Group, based in Antwerpen, Belgium, uses food to look at the changes and struggles our s face in a typical “fast-food” industrial society, the modern day workers and consumers exploitation, done by fast food giants, the likes of Mc-Donald and KFC.

Directly engaging the audience, the stage was designed around us, the actors and singers were dancing, running, flying so we can fully sympathize with their troubles. A suffocated worker, or a fish farm cruelty, sterilized cloths, face-less silver of a Cantina, a painfully soul-less world that knows not of Beauty. In Spain a ‘cantina’ is a bar near the railway station where you can have a quick snack, in Serbia ‘cantina’ is a University's or a large factory's restaurant where one can find cheap lunch each day. In Belgium, where a Theater Group Laika comes from, ‘kantine’ would be a cheerless space where people eat communally...

Vegetarianism (Article) and Christianity

The Orthodox Christians obey fasts that sometimes last as long as 1/3 of the whole year. Fasting one does not consume meat or meat products. So, tell me again, what was/is the problem with the vegetarianism within all these Christian countries when their Monks and Saints supported vegetarianism as a physically, mentally and spiritually beneficial diet?

Leo, The Loveable Lion
Leo, the Lovable Lion - Giles Andreae,David Wojtowycz

Leo, The Loveable Lionby Giles Andreae, is a story, about a lion cub who doesn't fit in. When he tells his pack he doesn't want to eat meat, they send him away. While on his own, he makes new friends, proves his worth, and finds peace with himself. In the end, his pack realizes their mistake, and his Mom welcomes him back home.

 

Leo, The Loveable Lion is a super sweet story with equally pretty illustrations.  It teaches a great story about appreciating those who are different and about accepting yourself when you are the one who is different, yet doesn't come across as preachy. This is a fabulous book to use if you are having issues in your classroom with accepting diversity or when teaching a diversity unit.  Kids will hopefully learn a lesson without even realizing they are learning!
