Robbins, author of the classic Diet for a New America, believes that plantbased nutrition and particularly vegan diets (free of meat, milk, and eggs) lead to long life and good health. Citing statistics, research studies, and selected quotes that extol the benefits of such diets, he also argues that animal products are responsible for such diseases as obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, and cancer. Robbins deplores the inadequate sanitation and inspection in meatprocessing plants and argues that many of the illnesses and stomach ailments that people complain about result from animal agriculture and the pathogens it introduces into our bodies. He also raises concerns about the dangers of fad diets that advocate high carbohydrates, high protein, or high fat. Robbins's zealous advocacy of plantbased nutrition and his refusal to consider the need for animal products in human nutrition throws his book off balance. Nevertheless, those who want to know more about vegan diets will gain many insights from his provocative book. Recommended for large nutrition collections with a diversity of viewpoints. -Library Journal, Irwin Weintraub, Brooklyn College Lib., New York.

Top international reviews
i have cried 3 times so far reading it. If i ever go to the usa i will never touch a morsel of meat and possibly try to be as vegan as i could manage...i dont want to be a blind supporter of this crap society any more. i am starting on the path to become vegetarian now, we'll see how that goes. Vegan is best though. Most people just dont wanna know whats really happening, ignorance is bliss an all that b*****ks.
I will pay my teenage daughter to read this book...
Another brilliant book is 'the china study'. i have bought many copies to give to people i care about. its my bible! check the reviews! :)
I wish everyone would buy a copy!
And pity the poor author, whose life savings were lost / stolen in the Madoff scandal.
It speaks out its own why we are having more illness these days which can be reduced drastically by changing the food we eat.I highly recommend this book because it again and again reminds why we should avoid American diet and just stick to the diet which our ancestors used to tell us[Vegan Diet]
Ritrae molto bene il sistema americano che fortunamente è un pò diverso da quello italiano.
per gli italiani, utile ma non descrive esattamente il nostro sistema di allevamento.
and a great present to friends (especially with health problems).
Un MUST HAVE !!!
