oducts to derive great benefit from this book. You don’t have to be a vegetarian to be concerned about your health, and to want your life to be a statement of compassion. It’s not the killing of the animals that is the chief issue here, but rather the unspeakable quality of the lives they are forced to live.

The purveyors of the Great American Food Machine don’t want you to know how the animals have lived whose flesh, milk, and eggs end up in your body. They also don’t want you to know the health consequences of consuming the products of such a system, nor do they want you to know its environmental impact. Because they know only too well that if word got out, the resultant public outcry would shake the foundations of their industry.

But I want you to know. I’m letting the cat out of the bag. I don’t care about their profits. I care about your health, your well-being, and the welfare of our planet and all its creatures.

Eating should be a pleasure. It should be a celebration and a communion with life. The information in this book will provide you access to a whole new sense of pleasure in eating—a pleasure all the deeper for being at no one’s expense, a pleasure all the more wonderful for being productive of radiant health.

Exciting things have been learned in the past few decades regarding health and food choices.

Thousands of impeccably conducted modern research studies now reveal that the traditional assumptions regarding our need for meats, dairy products, and eggs have been in error. In fact, it is an excess of these very foods, which were once thought to be the foundations of good eating habits, that is responsible for the epidemics of heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, and many other diseases of our time.

Diet for a New America is the first book to reveal the latest findings of nutritional research in a language anyone can understand and at the same time document these findings so you can rest assured of their legitimacy. It takes into account the marvelous and undeniable fact that you are a unique person, with your own special tastes, needs, and biochemical individuality. It does not sell you short by presenting rigid rules you have to follow obsessively. On the contrary, the goal is for you to be truly healthy and happy in every dimension of your being, and to be free from any kind of compulsion. Diet for a New America contains no dogmatic list of shoulds and shouldn’ts but instead gives you information that will help you select and enjoy foods that day by day will make you healthier and happier. It shows you how to
