9781573244879: The Food Revolution: How Your Diet Can Help Save Your Life and Our World

In 1987, John Robbins published Diet for a New America, which was an early version of this book, and he started the food revolution. He continues to work tirelessly to promote conscious food choices more than 20 years later.

First published in 2001, The Food Revolution is still one of the most frequently cited and talked about books of the food-politics revolution. It was one of the very first books to discuss the negative health effects of eating genetically modified foods and animal products of all kinds, to expose the dangers inherent in our factory farming system, and to advocate a complete plant-based diet.

The book garnered endorsements by everyone from Paul Hawken to Neal Donald Walsch, Marianne Williamson to Julia Butterfly Hill. After ten years in print, The Food Revolution is timelier than ever--and a very compelling read. The 10th anniversary edition has an updated, new contemporary look and a new introduction by the author.

From the Publisher:

"With regard to our health and the health of our planet, The Food Revolution could be the most important book ever written." –Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations with God

"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

"In The Food Revolution, John Robbins continues his groundbreaking research into the ill effects, both personal and collective, of the modern diet. Our food habits are the hardest addictions we face. Save your life. Save the World. Follow this book." –James Redfield, author of The Celestine Prophecy

"A person who leads me to eat in a way that cultivates spiritual awareness is my kind of prophet. John Robbins gives me a light at the end of the tunnel as well as providing a moral compass. The truth has few allies these days. I have deep respect for John Robbins and join him in the belief that the way we eat has profound environmental impact on our planet. I think it's high time we had a food revolution." –Woody Harrelson, movie and TV star

"With his brilliant and sharp pen/sword, John Robbins punctures the myths and lie balloons that lay millions of Americans in their graves every year. The Food Revolution will tell you how to save and extend your own life, show you how we can all easily work to reduce suffering on Earth, and give you a vibrant and vital sensation of life and health. This is one of those rare and truly transformational books: Buy it, read it, and share it with everybody you know!" –Thom Hartmann, author of The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight

"John Robbins has done it again. The Food Revolution is a riveting sequel to Diet for a New America. I started reading it and I couldn't put it down. I was especially impressed with the chapters on genetic engineering. Robbins explains the situation better than anyone I've ever heard. For the hundreds of thousands of people like me, whose lives have been forever changed by Robbins' work, The Food Revolution is a MUST READ. The word revolution is normally reserved in our society for guerrillas and telemarketers. THIS revolution is ours. It's a simple choice in the foods we eat that will have a radical effect on the world around us." –Adam Werbach, Former President, Sierra Club

"Beautifully written, The Food Revolution is a remarkable book by a remarkable man. It opened both my eyes and my heart. This is indeed a book that can save our lives." –Riane Eisler, author of The Chalice and the Blade and Tomorrow's Children

"The environmental health movement has become one of the most powerful grassroots movements of our time. With this book John Robbins continues his role as one of the movement's most outspoken and eloquent leaders." –Fritjof Capra, author of The Web of Life

"A vital and wonderful book, and easy to digest, this is a perfect read for anyone with a body, a mind, and a heart. The Food Revolution is the most positive book of the decade." –Ingrid Newkirk, President, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)

"The Food Revolution provides a cornucopia of arresting and revealing information. Robbins shows, in ways that both shock and fascinate, how the food we produce functions as a fateful link between our health as individuals and the health of the planet that gives us life. Particularly powerful is his well-documented account of the havoc wreaked by the "big cattle" industry on everything from our arteries to our aquifers." –Ed Ayres, Editorial Director, WorldWatch, author of God's Last Offer

"Once again, John Robbins enables us to find our way through the maze of information about food choices and the food industry. His impeccable research and visionary outlook are a gift to those of us who wish to make wise food choices. Personally, I found his reflections on many of the popular diets of our time to be extremely helpful." –Ann Mortifee, vocal artist and composer

"The Food Revolution will finish what Diet for a New America started. It is magnificent. Give a copy to everyone you care about!" –Howard Lyman, President, EarthSave, author of Mad Cowboy

"Revealing a host of astounding facts that the food industry would like to keep hidden, John Robbins shows how healthy eating is not only good for ourselves but also for the environment. Excellent and essential reading for all who want to live healthy lives and help make the world a better place." –Peter Russell, author of Waking Up in Time and From Science to God

"The Food Revolution has arrived in the nick of time to lead us toward healthy diets and healthy farms. Readable, poignant, brilliant, and amazing–this is the book to consult for the health of your family." –Brent Blackwelder, President, Friends of the Earth

"In The Food Revolution, John Robbins points out that the typical 'American diet' is not only associated with adverse effects on human health, but with the reprehensible treatment of animals and irreparable harm to our land and water. Packed with startling facts and provocative insights, The Food

Revolution is compelling reading for anyone interested in nutritional health, the treatment of animals, or even, simply, the fate of the planet!" –David L. Katz, M.D., M.P.H., Yale University School of Medicine

"John Robbins' The Food Revolution is undoubtedly the most comprehensive and sophisticated study on the political, ethical, and sane choices for a healthy diet. His candor and compassion guide the reader through advertising misconceptions to propaganda perpetuated by our food industry. If you wish to learn how to give your body optimal health, you had better tune in to the messages in The Food Revolution. " –Dave Scott, six-time Ironman Triathlon World Champion, first inductee into the Ironman Hall of Fame, and author of Dave Scott's Triathlon Training

It challenges and inspires individuals to accept responsibility for our choices and to take action for positive change." –Vesanto Melina and Brenda Davis, registered dietitians, co-authors of Becoming Vegetarian and Becoming Vegan

"The Food Revolution is the most comprehensive and persuasive argument ever assembled for a plant-based diet being proper human nutrition. Your life and the future of humankind may depend upon the spread of John Robbins' vital message." –John McDougall, M.D., Medical Director of the McDougall Program at St. Helena Hospital, author of ten national bestselling books, and host of the nationally syndicated TV Show McDougall, MD
