As children mature, they start to exercise independence in a number of choices, which includes what they are going to eat. Give your readers a balanced, rich survey of the vegetarian choice. Essays present a for-or-against array of information on the topic, starting off with how our anatomy offers clues to what the human diet should be. While one essay states that a vegetarian diet is not healthy, another essay outlines its health benefits. Another essay states that it's possible to be a conscientious carnivore while another states there is no such thing as guilt-free meat. Solutions, such as laboratories that grow meat are also debated. The global impact of this dietary choice is examined, giving readers much to consider while exercising their right to choose what they eat.

Very basic book. Very quick read. Interesting format because it shows both sides of the argument which I liked.
