Good review. I would add that giving up meat and animal products, in addition to the “amoral” benefits you’ve already mentioned, has a powerful health-promoting, disease fighting case to support it as well. Meat may not be murder but it most definitely IS suicide. How ironic that extreme animals-are-people types like PETA actually do more harm to their cause because the backlash they create masks the solid logic of changing our eating habits on a grand scale.
