The Benefits of Vegetarianism


The Benefits of Vegetarianism

The Benefits of Vegetarianism (Persian: فواید گیاهخواری‎‎, Favāyed-e giyāhkhori), written in 1927 by Iranian modern writer Sadegh Hedayat, is one of the most important and influential works ever written in Persian about animal rights and vegetarianism. It is the more complete edition of Hedayat's older book about animal rights named Men and Animals (Persian: انسان و حیوان‎‎, Ensan va Heyvan). Based on the two mentioned books, some vegan parties in Iran tend to consider Sadegh Hedayat as the father of Iran modern vegetarianism.[1][2]
