Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
In Transition To Vegetarianism: An Evolutionary Step, Doctor Rudolpf Ballentine presents an informed and persuasive survey of the value and reasoning to a vegetarian diet. Dr. Ballentine's informative text is laced with health relevant information such as meat-eaters having three times as many heart attacks as vegetarians, that a vegetarian diet decreases osteoporosis dramatically, that in endurance tests vegetarians had more than twice the stamina and strength of meat- eaters, and that the vegetarian diet is a time-honored technique for promoting alertness and clarity of consciousness. Ideal for the non-specialist general reader, Transition To Vegetarianism covers red meat, poultry, fish, and the question of milk and eggs in a vegetarian diet. If you are considering the pros and cons of a vegetarian diet for yourself, begin with reading Dr. Rudolf Ballentine's Transition To Vegetarianism.
John Feltzman
A useful and thorough guide, designed for real people in real-life situations.
—John Feltzman, Managing Editor of Prevention Magazine
Albert I. Mendeloff
This easy-to-read. . . paperback should be of real value to nutritionists and to the well-educated public considering the possible advantages of a lactovegetarian diet. It is highly recommended.
—Albert I. Mendeloff, M.D. Editor-in-Chief, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
C. Norman Shealy
A Scholarly and rational approach...This is the finest vegetarian book to date.
—C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., Founder and Past President, American Holistic Medical Association
Deepak Chopra
