Methodology

There is an overwhelming volume of research to substantiate the detrimental effects of animal consumption and the benefits of a plant-based diet.  We have included an abbreviated list of peer reviewed research articles as well as those by leading institutions.  We have excluded industry-funded research articles (or at least listed as having industry funding or if a primary author has an industry affiliation). Please let us know if you see a lapse or additional research we should include.
