Dr. Oppenlander's 'Comfortably Unaware': a book every vegan should read

As the title of his book suggests, Dr. Oppenlander has produced an informative, concise and unapologetically honest account of the cost of our preferred unawareness; not only to the planet, but to our health and of course, the animals.

Comfortably Unaware, is a book every vegan, animal advocate, eco-conscious, health conscious and globally aware person should read and carry in their arsenal against misinformation, deflection and the blissful ignorance that will surely lead to our demise.

Offering what can only be summed up as irrefutable, well-researched facts and figures, Dr. Oppenlander assists in broadening the reader’s understanding of global depletion and food responsibility, as well as the profound environmental effects our everyday choices have on the sustainability of our planet and the lives of all living beings.

It is a must read for anyone willing to make the necessary personal and collective changes that are crucial to co-existence, and ultimately survival.
