I was already a vegetarian for 6 years before I read this book. I became a vegetarian at that time for animal welfare reasons.

The section on animal protein and osteoporosis was really shocking. Some of the facts in this book are outdated, however, since it was written in 1987 (example: we now have saturated fat content on our food labels). The studies are still valid and there is a lot to be learned from this book. I
