Overview

Voices of the Food Revolution: You Can Heal Your Body and Your World with Food! by John Robbins, Ocean Robbins

Did you know that:

  • More than 80% of the foods you eat in restaurants and buy at supermarkets contain genetically engineered ingredients, and that these ingredients have been linked to toxic and allergic reactions in people; sickness, sterility, and fatalities in livestock; and damage to virtually every organ studied in lab animals?
  • If you don't count French fries, ketchup or pizza as vegetables, more than half of Americans eat no vegetables at all?
  • Cows raised for meat are impacting our climate more than cars?
  • It's possible to be a positive food revolutionary without sounding like a self-righteous nag?

Join John and Ocean Robbins for 21 intimate, game-changing conversations with some of the world's leading "food revolutionaries": scientists, doctors, teachers, farmers, economists, activists, and nutritionists working on food issues today. Introduced and with commentary by John Robbins and his son Ocean, the book features luminaries such as:

  • Dean Ornish, MD, on his years-in-the-making breakthrough with Medicare (his program for healing heart disease is now covered)
  • Kathy Freston on making incremental, manageable changes to how we eat
  • T. Colin Campbell, PhD, (author of the famed China Study) with the latest research on animal protein and human health
  • Joel Fuhrman, MD (author of the bestselling Eat to Live), on achieving excellent health through diet
  • Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic on wiping out heart disease by changing what we eat
  • Vandana Shiva, PhD, on GMOs and Big Ag
  • Rory Freedman on how to stop eating misery and start looking fabulous
  • Raj Patel on building a saner global food policy

Each contributor discusses his or her work in depth, but together they make one rallying cry: for a healthy, sustainable, humane, and delicious revolution in how we and the world are fed. Over twenty-five years ago John Robbins started a revolution. This book is proof of how far we've come, a fascinating look behind the scenes of the multi-faceted food movement, and a call to join in the work of ensuring our health and food future.

I purchased this book at B&N while traveling and devoured the whole book by the time we reached our destination. Informative and life changing, this book tackles everything from GMOs to eating a plant based diet to ward off disease. I have purchased/recommended this book to friends and family members who are struggling with weight issues or disease or who express concern about where their food is coming from. The only downside to the book is now i feel as tho i have to scrutinize everything i eat..its hard to eat "normal“ after reading this.
