Reflections on The Great Plant-Based Con – Diet & Health Today

I was chatting to someone at the Might 2022 Public Wellbeing Collaboration meeting (after I had done my “Should we be vegan?” presentation) and they mentioned we needed a e-book that pulled with each other the overall health and local weather areas of the plant vs animal debate, but that also lined the historical past and the conflicts.
