His key message is "respect for all life" and the book considers the often devastating impact of food choices on human health, the environment and relationships with fellow humans, animals and other creatures.
Dr Tuttle will also share his thoughts on how individual and social transformation is possible through empowering people to make different food choices.
As we bless others, we are blessed, and seeing beings rather than things, our own being is liberated and enriched. ~ Dr. Will Tuttle
The principles in The World Peace Diet incorporate systems theory, teachings from mythology and religion, and the human sciences, and apply to people of conscience from any religious tradition or of no faith.

Check out the event's Facebook page. It's full of quotes from Dr Tuttle and others that encourage people to think before they eat, such as:
As the threat of global climate destabilization grows, we will hopefully begin to realize that the most effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (and environmental pollution) is to reduce meat and dairy consumption. Gidon Eshel, a geographer at the University of Chicago concluded based on his 2006 research that, "However close you can be to a vegan diet and further from the mean American diet, the better you are for the planet."
