"I picked up this book because I wanted to eat
better and the name Conscious Eating seemed appealing...I didn't realize
the book would completely change the way I view food and the way I would
eat (it's a big eye opener). I have been a vegetarian since I read the
book (1 1/2 yr) and am very grateful for the education this book has
brought to me. Paavo Airola (referenced in this book) is also a great
source if you're considering being a vegetarian." -- Anonymous
Author's Note To Readers Of Conscious Eating:
I found that I had to express what I was finding, because people needed
the information. I write as a service. In my book Conscious Eating I try
to answer all the questions related to vegetarianism, live foods and all
the subtleties on every level. So, my design for Conscious Eating was
just that: let's be conscious, let's really understand what we're doing.
It's an attempt to support people who are considering a transition to
vegetarianism and for those who already are vegetarians. -- The
author, Dr.Gabriel Cousens, M.D. , April 29, 1998

A vegetarian doesn't eat any dead
animals or bits taken from them. That means no meat, poultry (chicken,
turkey etc), fish or other water animals (prawns, crabs etc) or things such
as gelatin and animal fat. A vegan doesn't eat any animal products including
eggs or dairy (e.g. milk, cheese, butter)...

People are interested in Veganism for the same reasons as vegetarianism -- not
participating in practices that cause suffering, supporting more environmentally-friendly
and sustainable agricultural practices, and improving their health...

Essay by Kathleen Lisson.
They have lower rates of breast, uterine, ovarian, colon, and many other cancers. They
have significantly lower rates of heart disease. They live in peace with the earth, only
taking from the land what they need to survive. Who are they? Some native tribe located on
the top of a sacred mountain? No, they live among us, they are vegetarians. A vegetarian
is a person who abstains from eating all animals, preferring a plant-based diet. There are
two categories of vegetarians. Vegetarians dont eat meat or meat products, like beef
broth or gelatin. Vegans dont eat meat, and also dont eat milk or eggs. Some
vegans also dont eat honey, or wear animal products, like leather. Sound like
something a nature lover like you might want to try? Let me tell you my story

Of the 100 polled, 72 vegetarians stated that they gave up meat because they thought it
was ethically wrong to eat animals. Chickens, for instance, are forced to live in cages
too small to be comfortable, in long windowless sheds with poor sanitation. They are
debeaked and made to lay eggs continuously. When their egg production declines, they are
sent to the slaughterhouse and killed to become someone's fried chicken dinner...

The weather reports are coming in every hour, on the hour. The television has a little
blue scrolling band on the bottom of your favorite program, warning you of the watches and
warnings in effect. Everyone around you is preparing, running to the ATM, the gas pump,
and the supermarket.
Whether you are facing a hurricane, tropical storm, tornado, flood, or snow warning,
the problems are the same. Your regular life is about to be interrupted by Mother Nature,
and you've got to cope. There will be a loss of mobility due to road closures; there may
be a loss of power, and even water. How do you, as a vegetarian, prepare for rough
weather? Just follow the checklist...
