Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The Protein Myth is a powerful indictment of the healthcare establishment for ignoring the evidence that could save the lives of millions of people. At the same time, it's a vivid portrayal of how our treatment of animals is ruining the health of the nation and stealing the publics' wealth. The Protein Myth shows that compassion toward other species is not merely an act of kindness. It is what is required to restore our health and move us toward a world without slavery, genocide or war.
--John Robbins, author of The New Good Life: Living Better in an Age of Less, The Food Revolution, and Diet for a New America.

David Irving reveals the science which can eliminate our common chronic killing diseases. His blistering expose of the politics, institutions, corporations, and governments which are geared to thwart this life-saving message is a powerful read.
--Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., MD, Author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease.

Reading and following the message in The Protein Myth could be the best health insurance policy you could buy for you and your family. This common-sense approach to health management will be the best investment you could ever make in your future.
--Howard Lyman, co-author of The Mad Cowboy, Plain Truth From the Cattle Rancher Who Won't Eat Meat; No More Bull; and President of Voice for a Viable Future.
