Editors Note From John Robbins comes a new edition of the classic that awakened the conscience of a nation. "A powerful indictment of our dietary practices that should be read by everyone interested in healthy living".--Andrew Weil, author of "Spontaneous Healing". 27 photos. 30 charts.
Annotation In this acclaimed work, author John Robbins, the son of the founder of the Baskin-Robbins ice cream company, reveals the barbaric and unsanitary conditions of American slaughter and dairy houses. He also addresses the large-scale ecological and health problems that are caused by Americans' obsession with high-protein diets. He shares studies that debunk popular myths--such as the belief that meat consumption is mandatory for optimum health--that are perpetuated by the meat and dairy industries. By exposing these reports and sharing his insider's experience, Robbins builds a strong case for becoming a vegetarian.
Editors Note 2 A second edition of the nutrition classic takes a hard look at the average American's diet and the health problems it can cause, describes the methods used in raising and slaughtering animals for our meat and poultry, and suggests healthful alternatives. Reprint.
