Owing to its immigration legacy, ethnically and culturally, the United States of America is one of the world’s most diverse and tolerant nations. The start of many trends and forward thinking initiatives has also been attributed to the open minded nation. in the last 100 years, US society has also consciously and compassionately progressed in animal welfare and the preference for the healthier, plant-based diet.

It is interesting to note that prior to the industrial era that escalated during the 20th century, meat eating in the United States was not at all common before the 1900s. Indeed, most people living in the US before this age ate very little animal flesh and subsisted on a primarily plant-based diet.

Today, we cordially invite you to join us on an inspiring and informative exploration into the lesser known but venerable history of this great united nation.

Mr. Adam Shprintzen Shprintzen (m):There actually was a distinct vegetarian movement in the United States that was fairly popular and fairly well recognized from the 1830s onwards.

Mr. Adam Shprintzen, Ph.D. candidate in the Department of History at Loyola University of Chicago, USA, will be our guide today in the first of a 3-part program on Our Noble Lineage.
A vegetarian himself, Mr. Shprintzen became interested in history of vegetarianism in America while attending university. He quickly realized it is an often neglected cornerstone of 19th century America, and delved deeper into its research as part of his higher studies.
