The book has explained the reasons why we need to take plant based diet more seriously than even before. It strengthens your arguments about the benefits of vegetarian / vegan food no matter which part of the world you live in. I have cited some live examples of how people benefited by changing their diet, my own experiences and important data from the world over related to animal farming, causes of various illnesses and the way forward. It is also a window to Africa and how locals are reciprocating to our efforts.
