Over the last decade our society has been moving forward while addressing issues pertaining to diet, obesity, health, and our resources. “The Food Revolution” comes at a time when more people are realizing we, as a whole, have given way to fast food and supporting genetically modified food production. As well, we need to realize that our land is not only being depleted of nutrients necessary for healthful production of food but is being devastated by oil spills, harmful pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers and by pollutants dumped into our waters and skies. Furthermore, major food production companies use inhumane facilities and treatment of the animals for economic gains.

John Robbins brings to our attention how each one of us needs to take responsibility to not only save our lives from slowly dying a nutritionless death but how we need to be aware of what goes on outside our plates.

“The Food Revolution” is an eye opener to say the least. Reading this book, filled with research and documented data, will give you an insight of how we must take responsibility not only for ourselves but for our planet. It is time we, as a society, took a close look on what we are doing and how we need to change our actions. Kudos to John Robbins. It’s time to step up to our plate and go beyond what is on it.
