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!
