The Food Revolution: How Your Diet Can Help Save Your Life and Our World | [John Robbins]

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

Here, the man who started the "food revolution" with the million-plus-selling Diet for a New America, boldly posits that, collectively, our personal diet can save ourselves and the world. If, according to chaos theory, the beating of a butterfly's wing can cause a hurricane in another part of the world, try this out for chaotic cause and effect: monarch butterflies are dying in droves due to genetically-engineered corn growing in the Midwest. There is also a direct correlation between the Big Mac in your hand and the mile-wide river now running across the North Pole.

Learn the truth about foods we are eating that are, in Robbins' words, "unsafe on any plate."

    "The Revolution That Is A Wake Up Call"
    Where does The Food Revolution rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks at the top 3.


    What other book might you compare The Food Revolution to and why?

    It works effectively as a precursor or a follow up to the The China Study by T. Collin Campbell.


    What does John Robbins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Robbins brings more inflection and passion to his written words.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    This book can and has changed lives for the better. There is so much going on in the food industry that the average person is not aware of. Robbins doesn't throw out glittering generalites. In the printed book, he presents his information and backs it with scientific findings from an exhaustive number of footnotes. This is important to note since you don't realize this just from the audio book alone. The information is solid and thankfully he is helping to heal the planet, one reader at a time.

    "One of the most important books you'll ever read!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Food Revolution the most enjoyable?

    The most amazing experience with this book was the eye-opening information on how we learn about health throughout our lives! If you want to live healthy and lose weight - READ THIS BOOK!


    What other book might you compare The Food Revolution to and why?

    Another worthwhile book to read besides this one is The China Study


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The Food Revolution inspired me to help the world by changing my own diet - it's incredible what an impact our own food choices have not only on our own health but the entire world and starving people on other parts of our planet!


    Any additional comments?

    Love, love, love, love this book!

    "Excellent"

    Another great book on the myriad benefits of a whole foods plant based diet. I really wish this message would get out there more. The world would be a far better place. People would be dramatically healthier. The environment would substantially improve. And many millions of sentient intelligent animals would not spend their entire short lives in tortured misery.

    Outstanding book. Highly recommended.

    "Didn't manage to finish it"

    Although I agree with the overall idea of the book, its a bit preachy & I don't agree that being a vegan is better for you than not, so I found this book a little difficult
