Food is our most intimate and telling connection both with the living natural order and with our living cultural heritage. By eating the plants and animals of our earth, we literally incorporate them. It is also through this act of eating that we partake of our culture's values and paradigms at the most primal levels. It is becoming increasingly obvious, however, that the choices we make about our food are leading to environmental degradation, enormous human health problems, and unimaginable cruelty toward our fellow creatures.

Incorporating systems theory, teachings from mythology and religions, and the human sciences, The World Peace Diet presents the outlines of a more empowering understanding of our world, based on a comprehension of the far-reaching implications of our food choices and the worldview those choices reflect and mandate. The author offers a set of universal principles for all people of conscience, from any religious tradition, that they can follow to reconnect with what we are eating, what was required to get it on our plate, and what happens after it leaves our plates.

The World Peace Diet suggests how we as a species might move our consciousness forward so that we can be more free, more intelligent, more loving, and happier in the choices we make.

We all long for peace and yet violence persists.
.
Why?
.
Will Tuttle makes a thoughtful, cogent case that there is a pink elephant in the room -- It's our unnecessary killing and exploitation of other beings. By intentionally participating in this unnecessary violence, our culture is perpetuating violence. Now we have evidence that that violence is coming back upon us and impacting humanity in ways that are earily reminiscent of what humans are doing to other beings.
.
On top of that, humanity's eating animals, according to World Watch Institute, is a major driver of almost every category of environmental destruction -- including contributing more green house gasses to the atmosphere than all forms of transportation combined.
.
Will Tuttle just completed yet another world speaking tour that included China. The reception to his ideas there have been much more encouraging that what we are finding here in the Midwest of the US. Yet one more way in which China may be poised to become the next world leader.
.
This beautiful book is opening hearts and minds around the world.
