Health & Fitness. Nonfiction. Originally published in 1987, Diet for a New America awakened the conscience of a nation with its startling examination of the food we buy and eat ?? and the moral, economic, and medical price we pay for it. Drawing a clear line connecting America's factory farm system with disease, animal cruelty, and ecological crises, Robbins makes perhaps the most eloquent argument for vegetarianism ever published. Robbins walked away from his family's business ?? the Baskin-Robbins ice cream empire ?? to pursue his dream of promoting a healthy society that practices "compassionate stewardship of a balanced ecosystem." In Diet for a New America he presents both a disturbing portrait of our current system and a vision for the future that will educate and empower readers t… (més)

Eye opener - everyone should read it & I wish they would! I borrowed it from the library, but now have purchased the ebook, as I will read it again. ( )

John Robbins writes a well-researched book on the down side of eating meat. Robbins covers the health effects, that these animals are fed hormones that are not natural and the inhumane conditions the animals go through. The reader will open up their minds to uncovering all the behind-the-scenes of the meat industry in U.S. The reader may have seen this story in news magazines if you watch 60 minutes or any other show. If you read articles on regular basis from magazines and newspapers, you are familiar with the subject. Robbins groups them all together in one sitting. You'll think twice before eating certain foods for several weeks. Life goes on. ( )

recommended for: compassionate people, vegetarians, everyone

This is the book that introduced me to veganism. It makes compelling arguments for eliminating animal products, and happily living on all plant products for all you consume. Talks about the ramifications of animal vs. plant products concentrating on 3 aspects: for the animals, for the earth, for human health. If you care about the future of the earth and its inhabitants, you'll be interested in this book. ( )

I rarely put FIVE stars on a book. This one is brave, brilliant, and will change the nastier parts of our world immediately. I dare anyone to read, for but one example, the chapter on "the most unjustly maligned of all Animals", without feeling that life change-up.

The author, John Robbins, presents the facts about our diet and the relationship between what we are "consuming" and the rising incidence of cancer, diabetes, and heart attacks.

The author simply takes us on a fact-found tour of our food. The book does not sermonize or condemn the modern concentrated business combines that have destroyed our hopes for robust health and humane lives. However, he empowers a new life of sanity and care.

We all share the author's values -- "Eating should be a pleasure". [xv] Stop eating food that has been injected by the worst drug-pushers, is manufactured by torture, kills even the soil of our planet, and poisons all who eat it.

The billion-dollar lobbyists who represent the trillion-dollar Food Industry, and who continue to corrupt those who we elect to protect our welfare, are frauds.

* The author is the "Robbins" of Baskin-Robbins and speaks as an insider from personal experience as well as access to the original research and science. He is now a vegetarian and a lover of Nature. ( )

Robbins' pet project filled with pseudo-science and touches of corn-syrup sympathy, disconnected anecdotes and studies that provide no narrative or proofs. An easy pitfall for newborn vegans written by the trust-fund son of the latter half of the Baskin-Robbins ice cream tycoon. Jump to your own conclusion about motive and authority. ( )

There are so many instances in which animals have demonstrated profound intelligence that, frankly, I wonder sometimes about the intelligence of the people who insist that animals are dumb.
All of today's food animals--the proud and passionate chickens, the friendly and steadfast pigs, the gentle-hearted cows--are treated today in a manner that would, I believe, sicken any open-hearted person who had eyes to see what was actually happening.
This and millions of other such advertisements hammer home the message over and over that bulls are delighted for us to eat bull flesh. I can't help but think that the correct term for this type of thing is "bull shit"!
