Product description

Review

Carefully researched, eminently readable, and starkly accurate, The Food Revolution will change your life. If every patient in every doctor's office read this book, it would revolutionize the health of America. -Neal Barnard, M.D., President, Physicians' Committee for Responsible Medicine-- "Reviews"

In what promises to be the publishing event of the decade, John Robbins provides both the information and the encouragement we need in order to reclaim the health of our bodies and our planet. Packed with political dynamite, this book will change your life. Forthright and fearless, thoroughly researched and engagingly presented, this is must reading for everyone who eats. -Joanna Macy, author of Coming Back to Life-- "Reviews"

John Robbins has done it again! Another brilliant, mindaltering, paradigmshifting, lifestylechanging, heartexpanding book from the most powerfully sane man I know. The Food Revolution will change your life and the lives of those you love. Thoughtful, penetrating, impeccably researched, it will make you laugh, then cry, then pass it on to your loved ones. -Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love-- "Reviews"

John Robbins is the leading voice in the world for restoring humanity to its proper relationship with food, the Earth, and health. Read The Food Revolution and get active. -Paul Hawken, author of Natural Capitalism-- "Reviews"

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. Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc-- "Reviews"
