Description
Over the course of nine days in the spring of 2012, John and Ocean Robbins gathered together leading insights from some of the world's brilliant scientists, doctors and nutritionists. They conducted more than twenty galvanizing, and deeply informative interviews, broadcast worldwide at The Food Revolution Summit. Voices from the Food Revolution collects these interviews, with commentary and introductions by John Robbins, making them available in book form for the first time. Each of these brilliant and committed souls has her or his own unique perspective on the food revolution. Together they make one rallying cry: for a healthy, sustainable, humane, and delicious revolution in what we choose as food. They speak in 23 voices but their unity of purpose shines through in these brilliant, incisive conversations. Robbins' work started a revolution, and these scientists, activists, teachers, farmers, bloggers, doctors, and others have taken up the torch and run with it.

display_description 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.
