Albert Einstein once wrote, “Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” In his book, “The World Peace Diet,” Dr. Will Tuttle illuminates and expands on this concept.

“The World Peace Diet” is a book that, if you have the willingness and the courage to read, will elevate your consciousness, change your perceptions about the world and its confused and conflicted understanding of morality, open your heart to a greater appreciation of nature, God and spirit, change the choices that you make on a daily basis, and in so doing change the universe for the greater good of all concerned.

“Everybody, soon or late, sits down to a banquet of consequences.”

~ Robert Louis Stevenson

The Whole Peace Diet speaks to the terrorism, torture, mutilation, castration, rape, imprisonment, subjugation and mass murder of animals for food and other commodities, and above all, for profit.

It details the ways in which our society and our humanity reflects the ways in which we treat animals. Essentially, what we do to others, we do to ourselves. As we continue to inflict pain, suffering and death on other living entities, ignoring the facts that they have feelings, intelligence, intuition, mother-child relationships, peer relationships, and a divine purpose no better or worse than our own, we can rest assured there will never be peace on the planet. We can continue to expect ongoing war, violence, aggression, torture, sadism, rape, murder, the list goes on and on.

“The World Peace Diet” not only delves into the parallels of our behaviors towards animals and our behaviors towards each other, as well as our societal woes born of our hunger for profit by any means necessary, it also exposes the reader to the historical roots of humankind’s diversion from a plant-based to an animal-based diet.

“By desecrating animals, we create energy fields that desecrate us and block our purpose on this earth: to unfold wisdom, love, and understanding.”

~ Will Tuttle, Ph.D.

“The World Peace Diet” is brilliant, powerful and revealing. Equally so, it is a profoundly disturbing book: It holds up a mirror that provides a reflection most people will not enjoy looking at. We have been trained to dissociate the food we eat with the process that is involved prior to it arriving on our plate. We have become unconscious accomplices of mass murder. It’s very sad.

The depths of our unconsciousness and the suppression of the truth of what we do to defenseless animals on behalf of our creature comforts reveal a society that is mired in duality and hypocrisy. Even our sacred religions which are supposed to be beacons of light to lead the way to God, Truth, Love and Peace have been co-opted by an animal eating/exploitation mentality.

As Dr. Tuttle so eloquently puts it: “May we ponder deeply the wisdom of the Golden Rule before it’s too late, and begin to actually live it with respect to the animals who are at our mercy.”

“Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together.”

~ Isaac Bashevis Singer

Almost everyday I hear people talking about how horrible the world is, how everything is getting worse: the economy, the environment, the violence and war, the aggressive, competitive mentality in general, the ever-increasing inequality of classes.

Almost everyday I hear the sense of powerlessness and futility people have in terms of their desire to make a difference and to change our world for the better.

I tell you this with no equivocation: Just about all of the problems we are facing in the world today such as war, poverty, starvation, environmental devastation, obesity, cancer, heart attacks, diabetes, a multitude of other diseases and conditions, alcohol and drug abuse, massive economic inequality and political abuse of power are the result of a society entrenched in eating the flesh and blood of animals.

Read this book. Change your mind. Change your diet. Change your life.
