Pride: Food Revolution.
What can we do to help stop global warming, feed the hungry, prevent cruelty to animals, avoid genetically modified foods, be healthier and live longer? Eat vegetarian, a lot of people argue. The choice is to actively engage with the living world, on a path to work responsibly and joyfully to make our lives, and our societies, into expressions of our love for ourselves and for the Earth. In this direction we will try to give our children, and all children, a world with clean air and water, with blue skies and abundant wildlife, with a stable climate and a healthy environment. This is the The Food Revolution.
The Food Revolution: How Your Diet Can Help Save Your Life and Our World by J.Robbins.
John Robbins, the man who started the "food revolution" with the ground-breaking Diet for a New America, boldly posits that, collectively, our personal diet can save ourselves and the world. His latest book presents compelling new information regarding the fields of nutrition, heart disease and cancer, agribusiness, and bioengineering. It discusses the latest discoveries about the relationships between diet and longevity, aging, and vitality. Armed with powerful statistics, fascinating viewpoints, and incisive exposes, Robbins argues for adopting a vegetarian diet for personal well-being as well as for the well-being of the planet.
