HASH(0x91bc606c) out of 5 stars Life Changing! 11 Dec. 2012
By Melinda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read the original edition of this book over 21 years ago. As a vegetarian at the time, I was shocked to learn about the connection between the meat industry and the dairy and egg industries, as well as the environmental and health implications of the Standard American Diet. I immediately dropped all animals products from my diet and have been a vegan for more than half of my life now. I credit this book and John Robbins for changing my life in a very powerful way. This has been one of the most profound books of my life.

HASH(0x91bc60c0) out of 5 stars Plant-Based Nutrition -- helps heal YOU and the planet! 13 Dec. 2012
By William J. Kleinbauer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Plant-Based Nutrition -- helps heal YOU and the planet! It is definitely "The Diet for All Reasons," per Dr. Michael Klaper!

Back in 1991 I encountered the first edition of this life-changing book and the "Diet for a New America" video. I played the video at a noon-hour "Making A Difference" Club meeting at The Aerospace Corporation, where I worked in El Segundo CA.

We busy humans need continuing re-inforcement to get the correct education and motivation to make big life changes, such as going to much improved nutrition. Deciding what is "correct human nutrition" is hard, when so much bad guidance comes from our government guidelines and from such diets as Atkins and Paleo ones!

It took until Jan. 2003 for my family of four to go "Plant-based, whole-foods optimal nutrition for health" after we participated in Dr. John McDougall's "TOTAL HEALTH SOLUTION" 10-day clinic. Dr. McDougall has been helping people get well for over 40 years -- on Amazon, get his 2012 book "The Starch Solution." Also get the free, best, health education and guidance at the drmcdougall.com website!

For a month, you can watch an October 2012 video talk by John Robbins and his 38 year old son, Ocean Robbins, for free at VegSource.

I just ordered Robbin's updated book to add to my big library of healthy lifestyle books.

We are all very fortunate to have many long-time experts singing from the same songbook on what is the best nutrition for humans! Besides John Robbins and Dr. McDougall, add Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr. T. Colin Campbell PhD, Dr. Michael Klaper, Dr. Hans Diehl, Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. Michael Greger, Dr. Pam Popper, RD Jeff Novick, Dr. Gabriel Cousens, Dr. William Harris, writer Ellen Jaffe-Jones, writer J. Morris Hicks, to name some! Most of them have their books and videos available at Amazon.

Oh - And we have many celebrities endorsing the plant-strong nutrition -- Pres. Bill Clinton stands out here!

HASH(0x91bc639c) out of 5 stars It is one of the best books I have ever read on how to live ... 3 Sept. 2014
By Johnworr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book written back in 1987 is as relevant today as when it was written. Every student as well as every adult should read it. The first section deals with factory farms, the second with the healthiest diets, and the third section with environmental issues. It is one of the best books I have ever read on how to live happily, healthily, and help promote animal rights. Part 1 is an eye opener on cruelty to animals on factory farms so for the faint hearted begin first with second two. John Robbins book Healthy at 100 is also highly recommended for those who want to live a long life that's disease free. His books are based on scientific studies and research. For more information about the author check out his website johnrobbins.info and listen to his latest videos.

HASH(0x91bc6294) out of 5 stars It's time to change 6 Jan. 2014
By Gypsy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm struggling with this book and can only read a little at a time. I'm well aware that animal cruelty goes on, and I sign petitions against cruelty to animals constantly. Seeing it in the written word just compounds the whole ugly imagine of the business. I would like to see this book introduced into the school curriculum during 1st and 2nd year high school or in a compacted issue in grade 6 (now I'm dreaming). The one way we will change these ugly practices and reform these ugly people running these ugly businesses is through the education of our young, while we wait until the oldies die out - or perhaps we could send them on a truck, ship, etc etc on their last worldwide journey into their retirement without telling them what their outcome will be at the end of their journey - surprise. What a lovely thought. This is a must read book for every body - not only for vegetarians - everybody and anybody who cares for the welfare of the animals we consume that are treated in such a brutal fashion all in the name of the dollar. Any wonder we are full of diseases ourselves. Do these uglies look into the eyes of these poor creatures? A must read book but I am struggling.

By Andreas Michaelides - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I read this book I was already a plant based eater for almost a year, so I did not actually bought the book in order to find something that will convince me that our flesh eating habits will lead to the human extinction. I bought this book because I wanted to learn the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth about inhuman eating habits and supply myself with nutrition arguments and examples to present when I am confronted by ignorant omnivore about my new diet.
Highly recommend for anyone that wants to learn the truth about how we are killing ourselves and our planet with every bite we put in our mouth.
Also if you want to check out my book Thirsty For Health I would really appreciate it.
Thank you and have a healthy day!
Regards
Andreas Michaelides
