EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK
“The World Peace Diet
– Eating for Spiritual Health and
Social Harmony’ by WILL TUTTLE, Ph.D.
Over two thousand years ago in ancient Greece, the need for a positive revolution based on compassion for animals was clearly understood and articulated by Pythagoras. He had said, “As long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seeds of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.”

His unequivocal teaching that our happiness depends on treating animals with kindness inspired Plato, Plutarch and Plotinus and until 1850, when the word “vegetarian” was coined, anyone who refrained from eating animals was called a “Pythagorean”.

Then centuries later came the genius Leonardo da Vinci who uttered his prescient words about the dire consequences of our meals: “I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.”

Another genius Albert Einstein wrote, “Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances of survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”

Our deep urge to evolve to a more spiritually mature level of understanding and living, and to create a social order that promotes more justice, peace, freedom, health, sanity, prosperity, sustainability and happiness, absolutely requires us to stop viewing animals as food objects to be consumed and to shift to a plant-based way of eating. This would bless us enormously, liberating us from routinely practising, denying and projecting violence, and would help us cultivate equality and loving – kindness in our relationships as well as develop our capacity for inner serenity.
