“Like blades of grass bursting through a crack in a thick slab of concrete, something is seeking to break through the walls we have put between us and our kinship with the Earth. It is the awesome power of Creation itself. It is the same force that turns the tides, brings rain to parched earth, entices the bee to the flower, and ignites new life in countless species.

Maybe we aren’t on a one-way road to oblivion. Maybe we’re standing at a crossroad, facing what may be the most important choice human beings have ever faced, a choice between two directions. In one direction is what we will have if we do nothing to alter our present course. By doing nothing, we are choosing a world of pollution and extinctions, of widening chasms and deepening despair, a world where humanity moves ever farther from achieving its highest aspirations and ever nearer to living its darkest fears.”

—— from the book The Food Revolution

Julia Butterfly Hill
environmental activist
author, The Legacy of Luna

“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.”

“The Food Revolution provides a cornucopia of arresting and revealing information.

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, God’s Last Offer

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.,

“John Robbins has scored again. His writing style is engaging and sufficiently personal to make it MUST reading.

Scientific researchers also would do well to read what Robbins says.”

Colin Campbell
Senior Science Advisor, American Institute for Cancer Research

“John Robbins shows the seamless integration between our food and our world. Diet and farming practices that are causing human disease are hurting animals and the planet. Now, genetic engineering, based on these damaging misunderstandings, is creating new dangers. Robbins clearly shows that the sensible path to restoring personal health is one with the path to restoring planetary health and with restoring moral relations with other living creatures.”
