An inspirational collection of personal stories from the most eloquent, passionate and intellectually progressive voices in today’s Animal Rights movement, Turning Points in Compassion challenges the widespread (and often unquestioned) perceptions of our relationship with animals.
Generally speaking, our society views animals as non-feeling commodities who serve as a food or product source – and animal advocates are seen as a sentimental minority. Seldom do we give thought to the conditions that bring animals to our plate and label the ardent passion of advocates as “extremist.”
Turning Points in Compassion challenges those views with contributions from academics, scientists, doctors, lawyers, farmers, nutritionists, ministers and sanctuary workers.
It debunks the idea that animals are necessary for our sustenance and provides evidence (via respected doctors and nutritionists) that a non-animal diet is more beneficial to our health.
There is also significant evidence that supports the fact that an ‘animal based diet’ leads to cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes and some forms of cancer.
Each story is a powerful testimony to the capacity of individuals to transform the worldview inherited from previous generations. As a result, new paradigms replace the old.
Told with a powerful blend of compassion and honesty, these heartwarming stories which describe a new world of compassionate living and understanding, will transform the reader’s perspective on life in a profoundly beautiful way.
Already awarded Vegan of the Year in the category of Outstanding Creative, Turning Points in Compassion reveals a movement that will benefit ourselves, the animals and the planet.
Without question, no reader will be left unchallenged by this book.
