Diet for a New America: How Your Food Choices Affect Your Health, Happiness and the Future of Life on Earth

And also —- Diet For A New America (the DVD)

“A the present time, when most of us sit down to eat, we aren’t very aware of how our food choices affect the world. We don’t realize that in every Big Mac there is a piece of the tropical rainforests, and with every billion burgers sold another hundred species become extinct. We don’t realize that in the sizzle of our steaks there is the suffering of animals, the mining of our topsoil, the slashing of our forests, the harming of our economy, and the eroding of our health. We don’t hear in the sizzle the cry of the hungry millions who might otherwise be fed. We don’t see the toxic poisons accumulating in the food chains, poisoning our children and our earth for generations to come. But once we become aware of the impact of our food choices, we can never really forget. Of course we can push it all to the back of our minds, and we may need to do this, at times, to endure the enormity of what is involved.
But the earth itself will remind us, as will our children, and the animals and the forests and the sky and the rivers, that we are part of this earth, and it is part of us. All things are deeply connected, and so the choices we make in our daily lives have enormous influence, not only on our own health and vitality, but also on the lives of other beings, and indeed on the destiny of life on earth.

Thankfully, we have cause to be grateful-what’s best for us personally is also best for other forms of life, and for the life support systems on which we all depend.”

“Profoundly fulfilling and moving…the pioneering match of…Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring.”

Dr. Andrew Weil author, Healthy Aging

“Diet For a New America is the best book ever written on the subject of using animals for food. I wish I had written it myself. I was especially moved by the way Robbins opens up the subject by writing about animals as living, feeling, beings.”
