Over the years, there has been a noticeable focus on obesity and other health-related issues, which has prompted much research and discussion on people's food habits. Gennady Ermak, a biologist and author of over 50 research articles and several books, offers an A-Z guidebook -- Plant-Based, Meat-Based and Between -- to help audiences understand their dietary needs and find the food sources that can best take care of those needs with plant-based, meat-based, and between food. In addition, Ermak provides an in-depth examination of the moral, ethical, religious, environmental, and health impact of meat consumption, as well as showing ways of more humane eating practices that include regulations, using labels to determine humanely produced animal products, exploring alternative foods, and much more. He also lists the benefits and drawbacks of eating fish, eggs, different fruits, and vegetables and tackles the health concerns regarding animal-based and plant-based diets.
Gennady Ermak points out that some of the oldest implementations of vegetarianism and veganism are in three of India's most ancient religions, including Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism. Plant-Based, Meat-Based and Between is a thorough study of the dietary practices that lead to a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle while maintaining humane eating habits that promote animal welfare and environmental consideration. One of the chapters sheds light on how animals perceive pain and explores the methods and practices we can employ to relieve animals of such pain and stress. As people become more aware and supportive of alternative food sources, guides like this have become increasingly relevant for our times. Highly recommended.
