Publisher's Summary

From John Robbins, a new edition of the classic that awakened the conscience of a nation.

Since the 1987 publication of Diet for a New America, beef consumption in the United States has fallen a remarkable 19 percent. While many forces are contributing to this dramatic shift in our habits, Diet for a New America is considered to be one of the most important.

Diet for a New America is a startling examination of the food we currently buy and eat in the United States and the astounding moral, economic, and emotional price we pay for it.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Amazing Read

This book is fantastic. It is so full of information that I will have to read it again. It covers everything from the way factory farms raise animals, to diseases, health problems and allergies, toxic chemicals, global warming. Not only did it confirm the choices I had already made in my eating and health, but it also gave me ideas on how I want to improve my family’s foot print for the planet. I want my children and grandchildren to live in a better world than the one they will be inheriting if we continue to move in the direction we are. I just wish that everyone would read this. If you choose not to make any lifestyle changes, that’s cool, but at least we would all be informed.

Absolutely Brilliant

It is such a pity that the majority of people will not listen this book and keep their head stuck in the sand. I just wish I had read this book when it first came out 25 years ago, maybe my Dad would still be alive!
