4.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating read that blows the lid on the food industry, 27 Jun 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Food Revolution: How Your Diet Can Help Save Your Life and Our World (Paperback)
This book sets out to tell the truth about today's food industry and its impact on our health and the environment. Beware though, once you've read it you may never eat another hamburger again - unless it's organic of course. It is not for the fainthearted however and contains damning and often disturbing information about factory farming methods that underlines the pain and suffering endured by livestock.
The book is broken down into sections on diet, the treatment of animals, the environment and genetic engineering. It is packed full of insightful information that has come out of recent research in the fields of nutrition, medicine, and agriculture.
Statements such as: 'two thirds of the food sold in US supermarkets are genetically modified' and '..the average North American consumes, per day, the rather staggering total of 53 teaspoons of sugar' highlight some of the problems perpetuated by the food industry.
This is a fascinating read which uncovers practices that we'd probably be happier not knowing about. Robbins obviously feels very passionately about his subject and the book conveys his sense of anger and outrage. It also makes a great case for organic food and should appeal to new customers as well as to the converted.
