Did you know that: More than 80% of the foods you eat in restaurants and buy at supermarkets contain genetically engineered ingredients, and that these ingredients have been linked to toxic and allergic reactions in people; sickness, sterility, and fatalities in livestock; and damage to virtually every organ studied in lab animals? If you don't count French fries, ketchup or pizza as vegetables, more than half of Americans eat no vegetables at all? Cows raised for meat are impacting our climate more than cars? It's possible to be a positive food revolutionary without sounding like a self-righteous nag?Join John and Ocean Robbins for 21 intimate, game-changing conversations with some of the world's leading "food revolutionaries": scientists, doctors, teachers, farmers, economists, activists, and nutritionists working on food issues today.
