Here's a special video excerpt from the upcoming GET HEALTHY NOW YELLOW DVD set.

Bestselling author, Jeffrey Masson, has written many popular books about animals, such as When Elephants Weep, Dogs Never Lie About Love, and The Face On Your Plate.

Watch Jeff talk about a few topics: Cesar Chavez encouraging him to go vegan; how children have to be indoctrinated against their instincts to eat animals; and what Jeff said to his friend, chef Alice Waters, when she told him that in her gourmet restaurant, Chez Panisse, they never serve an animal that hasn't led a wonderful life.

Jeff's response will crack you up!

This is a very short excerpt from the Q&A portion of Jeff Masson's fascinating talk.

I remember as a child asking my mother, "Why do we kill animals and eat them?" She answered by telling me what she believed to be true. She told me that it was sad but we needed to eat meat and this is nature. This was more than 45 years ago and neither of us knew a vegetarian, let alone a vegan. As soon as I learned that, in fact, it was not necessary to eat animals I became a vegetarian. After learning, more I became vegan. Currently I have been a happy, healthy vegan for more than 20 years.

I don't get M-j Raichyk's comment. We're all going to die eventually so why not kill other people? Since they are going to die anyway, why not tear babies from their mothers, kill the babies, take the mothers' milk and kill the moms when they are still young?

My values include compassion, mercy, the Golden Rule, non violence and empathy. I also don't believe in the powerful abusing the powerless.

Vegans are proof that it is not necessary to eat animals or animal products. The fact that it is not necessary is a crucial point and makes all the difference.


While I support his ideas, I don't know if it's fair to use the word "liars". Speaking as a former carnivore, a lot of meat-eaters are just uneducated about what actually takes place on factory farms. Society keeps us in the dark, and it's only through exposure to the truth that they will make the right choices.


Live simply, so others may simply live. Follow the nature of the human anatomy & physiology: we are herbivores, plain & simple. We don't have the physical attributes of a carnivore. Thus, we thrive on plants. When we consume anything animal, it goes against the physique & constitution we were born with & makes us unhealthy.


Hi, how much does this DVD cost? Any idea please?
