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. Introduced and with commentary by John Robbins and his son Ocean, the book features luminaries such as: •Dean Ornish, MD, on his years-in-the-making breakthrough with Medicare (his program for healing heart disease is now covered) •Kathy Freston on making incremental, manageable changes to how we eat •T. Colin Campbell, PhD, (author of the famed China Study) with the latest research on animal protein and human health •Joel Fuhrman, MD (author of the bestselling Eat to Live), on achieving excellent health through diet •Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic on wiping out heart disease by changing what we eat •Vandana Shiva, PhD, on GMOs and Big Ag •Rory Freedman on how to stop eating misery and start looking fabulous •Raj Patel on building a saner global food policy Each contributor discusses his or her work in depth, but together they make one rallying cry: for a healthy, sustainable, humane, and delicious revolution in how we and the world are fed. Over twenty-five years ago John Robbins started a revolution. This book is proof of how far we've come, a fascinating look behind the scenes of the multi-faceted food movement, and a call to join in the work of ensuring our health and food future.
