    Dear Student
    This is a very interesting and important topic, and is especially of interest to me since I am a vegetarian. I have provided a simple overview of the sorts of things that you need to take into consideration when answering these questions. I have also listed some references, which are quite useful, and I encourage you to read through them and seek out further resources.

    The first question asks you to give a comparative analysis, although not a comprehensive one - it simply asks you whether or not a vegetarian diet is a practical and nutritious alternative to the typical American diet. You could start by clarifying what a typical American diet - I have made a start for you, and you could build on my suggestions. I suggest that you look through some of the academic on-line journals, which you should have access to via your university's library. I have attached a couple of articles, that may be of use.

    Kind Regards
    Anita
