A growing number of Australians are adopting alternative diets to improve their health or address ethical concerns. As a dietary choice, vegetarianism attracts interest and debate over its responses to environmental sustainability, health and animal cruelty. There are many different forms of vegetarianism (including veganism), and many reasons why people choose a vegetarian lifestyle. This book presents a range of information, much of it contributed by organisations which advocate vegetarianism. What benefits does a vegetarian diet have over one which includes meat? How are the nutritional needs of vegetarians met, particularly among children and young people? What are the facts and myths surrounding vegetarian and vegan diets? Also includes: Worksheets and activities ; Fast facts ; Glossary ; Web links ; Index. Sources of information: Titles in the ‘Issues in Society’ series are individual resource books which provide an overview on a specific subject comprised of facts and opinions. The information in this resource book is not from any single author, publication or organisation. The unique value of the ‘Issues in Society’ series lies in its diversity of content and perspectives. The content comes from a wide variety of sources and includes: Newspaper reports and opinion pieces ; Website fact sheets ; Magazine and journal articles ; Statistics and surveys ; Government reports ; Literature from special interest groups. Critical evaluation: As the information reproduced in this book is from a number of different sources, readers should always be aware of the origin of the text and whether or not the source is likely to be expressing a particular bias or agenda. It is hoped that, as you read about the many aspects of the issues explored in this book, you will critically evaluate the information presented. In some cases, it is important that you decide whether you are being presented with facts or opinions. Does the writer give a biased or an unbiased report? If an opinion is being expressed, do you agree with the writer?
