Look here:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://pcrm.org/health/veginfo/index.html" target="_blank">http://pcrm.org/health/veginfo/index.html</a><br><br><br><br>
All good, thoroughly researched and up to date articles by medical doctors.<br><br><br><br>
I also recommend this book by Dr. Neal Barnard, the president of PCRM:<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=veggieboards.com-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fexec%2Fobidos%2Ftg%2Fdetail%2F-%2F0517882019%2Fqid%3D1051689427%2Fsr%3D1-" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...51689427/sr=1-</a>

Any text for a high school health course or high school biology course should have a section on general elements of nutrition for plants and animals, another section on nutrition and digestion in mammals, and another section on specific elements of human nutrition.<br><br><br><br>
Basicly what you need to know are what the macronutrients are and what the micronutrients are. Also, you should have some idea of the relative amounts of macronutrients needed by humans in particular and some basic aspects of protein digestion, carbohydrate digestion, and fat digestion, with info about the basic chemistry of carbs, fats, and proteins.

There is an excellent book on vegan/vegetarian nutrition called "Becoming Vegan". It's written by two registered dieticians. One of them is a long-term vegetarian and the other is a long-term vegan. I was able to find it at my local library. After reading it, I decided to buy it. It's inexpensive at Amazon.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
There is much more information in this book than anyplace I've seen on the Internet and I believe that this book is very unbiased. It was published in September 2000 so it's fairly up to date. The ISBN number is: 1570671036

I second the Becoming Vegan reccomendation! Even my dad who's an omni read it and felt it presented nutrition in a very informative, unbiased manner.
