William Harris MD, Vegan Medical Doctor: 1930-2015
We are saddened to announce the sudden and unexpected passing of a dear friend, William Harris MD, who died on August 26th, 2015, at the age of 84.
A longtime resident of Oahu, Hawaii, Bill was the author of the classic book, The Scientific Basis of Vegetarianism. He graduated from UC Berkeley with honors in Physics, then studied medicine at UC San Francisco where he graduated in 1963. For the next 35 years Bill worked as an emergency and urgent care doctor. He was the Director of the highly successful Kaiser Permanente Vegetarian Lifestyle Clinic in Honolulu, where he taught people how to go vegan to get rid of most diseases.
Due to his compassion for animals, Bill became vegetarian in 1950 and then vegan in 1964. In addition to becoming an activist for animals, he studied optimal human nutrition which led to the publication of his watershed book, which you can read for free on his website (linked here http://vegsource.com/harris/book_contents.htm ).
