Dr. Klaper's "Vegan Nutritrion: Pure and Simple" approaches vegan nutrition as just that - nutrition. It's the only book that has influenced me, and only because of its nutritional approach. Dr. Klaper says the human body has no nutritional requirement for animal products, and makes a fact-based, well-researched case supporting his claim. He outlines how the human body is not built to process animal products, and why the natural building blocks of animal products are harmful to the human body.
Due to Dr. Klaper, I lost my taste for all that delicious meat, shellfish, and dairy. I still eat it once in a while, but I consider it a treat vs. every-day basic. As a result, my body is lighter, I have more energy, my mind is clearer, and my life expectancy is longer. Thank you Dr. Klaper!!
I recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about human nutrition!

As has been demonstrated time and time again, animal fats and proteins are not the culprit (contra the China study AGAIN), rather, the culprit is the sad American diet of highly processed foods and oil, of which even more sadly many vegetarians partake of.
As with anything, do your own research. Don't believe the naysayers just because they don't like eating animals, especially quacks who just like to attack their opponents rather than take apart their research scientifically. Look at the studies for yourself, read the abstracts in peer-reviewed journals cited in the literature, and eat a balanced diet which includes clean animals. You will be glad you did!
