Publisher's Summary

Better sex, glowing skin, and more money…by going vegan

Did you know that if you adopt a vegan diet you can enjoy better sex? Save money? Have glowing skin? You can ward off Alzheimer’s, Type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and other metabolic diseases. You can eat delicious burgers. Help save the planet. Join the cool kids, like Gandhi, Tolstoy, Leonardo—and Kyrie Irving, Kat Von D, and Joaquin Phoenix. Oh, and did we mention have better sex? (It’s about blood flow.)

Those are just some of the 72 reasons we should all be vegan, as compiled and persuasively argued by Gene Stone and Kathy Freston, two of the leading voices in the ever-growing movement to eat a plant-based diet. While plenty of books tell you how to go vegan, 72 Reasons to Be Vegan is the book that tells you why. And it does so in a way that emphasizes not what you’d be giving up, but what you’d be gaining.

"Bestselling vegan activist Kathy Freston and the movement’s best chronicler, Gene Stone, team up to give us 72 reasons to go plant based (and better sex is just one of them!) A must-read for anyone concerned about the future of our planet, their own health, or the moral ramifications of meat-eating.”

— Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow and author of The Blue Zones

Review

This is my initial review, I will come back and change it at the end of the book. The fact that they say electric vehicles are clean is hilarious. They clearly have no idea how electricity is made. I’ve literally seen diesel generators powering charging stations. In the initial chapter about global warming because of farts and burps is kind of ridiculous. Temperature oscillation. Look it up. Research it.

Good Book

I feel this book is best for someone just considering the lifestyle or for young adults. That said, I did pick up a few new things.

Handy but you've heard most of it before

This is a good book and I got it after a recomendation by Rip Esselstyn.
Unfortunately, I've heard most of this before from the likes of the Essie family, Dr Michael Greger etc, - so I am a bit disappointed.
The narration is a bit patronising as it sounds like they are reading to children.
This book is ideal for those who know little about plant based in which case it would make an excellent choice, especially as a gift.
I am disappointed and sorry to write this review, but felt you should know.
