LOCAL>> Gene Stone & Kathy Freston - 72 Reasons to Be Vegan

Co-authors discuss their new book on why everyone should be vegan

Did you know that if you adopt a vegan diet you can enjoy better sex? Save money? Have glowing skin?

You can ward off Alzheimer’s, Type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and other metabolic diseases.

You can eat delicious burgers. Help save the planet. Join the cool kids, like Gandhi, Tolstoy, Leonardo—and Kyrie Irving, Kat Von D, and Joaquin Phoenix.

Oh, and did we mention have better sex? (It’s about blood flow.)

Those are just some of the 72 reasons we should all be vegan, as compiled and persuasively argued by Gene Stone and Kathy Freston, two of the leading voices in the ever-growing movement to eat a plant-based diet. While plenty of books tell you how to go vegan, 72 Reasons to Be Vegan is the book that tells you why. And it does so in a way that emphasizes not what you’d be giving up, but what you’d be gaining. The tone is upbeat, passionate, and direct, and the facts are plentiful and annotated.

Whether because of environment, health, or compassion for animals, more and more people are dipping their toes into Meatless Mondays, eating vegan before 6:00 p.m., choosing Impossible Burgers, or helping books like Thug KitchenForks Over Knives, and Skinny Bitch become national bestsellers—making 72 Reasons to Be Vegan the ideal next book for every food-conscious reader and the perfect gift vegans can give to their friends and family.

 

Gene Stone is a former Peace Corps volunteer, journalist, and book, magazine, and newspaper editor, and is a New York Times bestselling author. He has written, co-written, or ghostwritten more than 45 books on a wide variety of subjects, but for the last decade he has concentrated on plant-based diets and their relationship to health, animal protection, and the environment. Among these books are Forks Over Knives, How Not to Die, Animalkind, The Engine 2 Diet, Living the Farm Sanctuary Life, Rescue Dogs, Mercy for Animals, and Eat for the Planet.

Kathy Freston is a New York Times bestselling author of multiple health and wellness books, notably The Lean, Quantum Wellness, and Clean Protein. Her advocacy for a more healthy, sustainable, and just food system is inspired by her concern for human health as well as animal and environmental welfare. Kathy appears frequently on national TV, including Ellen, Dr. Oz, Good Morning America, The Talk, Extra, and Oprah, and her work has been featured in Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, Self, W, Fitness, and The Huffington Post. Kathy enjoys hiking and biking, will travel almost anywhere for a good plant-based meal, and is obsessed with her adopted mutt, Trixie.
