Sunday Learning Series—New “Big Picture” Pages

After over 400 consecutive daily blogs—it’s time to get organized.

Promoting health, hope and harmony on planet Earth

What's good for our health, is also good for the planet --- and all of her creatures.

Our book and this blog begins with health of humans—but they both also include four other primary categories of reasons for eating whole, plant-based foods. And, in the past year, I have posted numerous blogs on each category.

A few weeks ago, I decided to organize many of those previous blogs on a brand new page—it is entitled “Topics” and can be found between the “Store” and the “Video” tabs on every page of this blog.

If you hover over “Topics,” you’ll see a drop-down list consisting of an “introductory” page along with five additional pages devoted to the categories of compelling reasons for plant-based eating: health of humans, health of the planet, energy issues, world hunger and suffering of animals.

While you’re “hovering” over “Topics,” for your Sunday viewing pleasure, you might try “hovering” over “Video,” where there is a list of compelling videos that everyone needs to see.

Each of these new pages (corresponding to different chapters of our book) contains a handy list of previous blogs on these topics. For example, on the “Health of Humans” page, I have two lists; one for the health of humans in general and another for the health of children in particular. I will be updating all these pages from time to time—in a continuous effort to highlight the most compelling information. For your convenience, provided here are links and the first few sentences that appear on these new pages:

It all boils down to harmony---all of the compelling reasons for plant-based eating.

About J. Morris Hicks

A former strategic management consultant and senior corporate executive with Ralph Lauren in New York, J. Morris Hicks has always focused on the "big picture" when analyzing any issue. In 2002, after becoming curious about our "optimal diet," he began a study of what we eat from a global perspective ---- discovering many startling issues and opportunities along the way. In addition to an MBA and a BS in Industrial Engineering, he holds a certificate in plant-based nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, where he has also been a member of the board of directors since 2012. Having concluded that our food choices hold the key to the sustainability of our civilization, he has made this his #1 priority---exploring all avenues for influencing humans everywhere to move back to the natural plant-based diet for our species.

    Thank you Leo, It really is all about simple, yet powerful information, followed by common sense combined with a sense of responsibility for our own health, the health of our children and the health of the planet. Thanks for helping to spread the word. Best, Jim

    You keep improving your website and the information available to people who might be interested in changing their lifestyle and the planet we iive on. Even the links have links so one might learn more if they had the time and interest. Years ago people spoke about an “information explosion.” Now if only we could see an “interest explosion” to make use of the books, DVDs and videos available on The Internet that might show changes that could be made.

    May you have continued success with your efforts. The world and individuals could benefit by improved conditions if we can learn to make better choices.
