Editorial Reviews

Review

"Christina Pirello has zeroed in on exactly why we're out of control with our health and our lives, and she shows us the solution. If you've had it with being manipulated by food commercials and lied to by food manufacturers, and you're confused about what's healthy and what's not, Christina sorts it out with wisdom and humor, and makes it phenomenally easy to change your life for good." — Neal D. Barnard, MD, President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

About the Author

In 1983, Christina Pirello was diagnosed with an acute form of leukemia. With little prospect of help from conventional therapies, she turned to a nutritional program using a whole foods approach. Now, after more than 15 years cancer-free, Christina Pirello is the Emmy award-winning host of Christina Cooks! on National Public Television, teaching whole foods cooking classes and lecturing nationwide. Christina is the author of Cooking the Whole Foods Way, Christina Cooks, and, most recently, This Crazy Vegan Life. She and her husband publish a natural foods magazine, Macrochef.

By David Kinchen on January 9, 2012
Format: Paperback
No matter who is in the White House, an enormous Food/Industrial Complex controls what we eat. Christina Pirello, chef, teacher, award-winning television host, and vocal advocate for healthy living is fed up (pun intended) and she tells all in "I'm Mad As Hell, and I'm Not Going to Eat It Anymore: Taking Control of Your Health and Your Life -- One Vegan Recipe At A Time"

Pirello takes on the food establishment, big pharma, marketers, the government, and nongovernmental health agencies in a sweeping and well-argued indictment of the roles these organizations play in the demise of our collective health, our health care system, and our planet.

Not limiting herself to a diatribe similar to the one in the movie "Network" Pirello writes how --despite the propaganda from the government and the food/industrial complex -- you now can take responsibility for your own health and well-being even in the face of overwhelming odds. Step by step, Pirello guides you to an understanding of the causes of this country's major health problems and offers solutions that show how to create change, whether you are taking the first tentative steps toward healthier eating or are ready for a full- on commitment to embracing a completely plant-based diet and vegan lifestyle.

If you're concerned about "Frankenfood" -- genetically modified organisms (GMO) -- and who isn't? -- Pirello writes on Page 107 onward how industrial giants like Monsanto are pushing foods created by their mad scientists that never occurred in Mother Nature's garden, with the help of the U.S. government. On pages 109-10, she writes that in one week the Obama administration deregulated sugar beets and alfalfa "two very important crops that can affect our future.

I am new to veganism and have have been doing some research into food politics and nutrition. I really wanted to love this book because it totally speaks to my point of view about processed food and the horrors of industrial meat and dairy production. I like Christina Pirello's passion and her point of view. I was disappointed, however, to find her using unreliable/weak sources for her information. She quotes sources like Wikipedia, which is open source and should never be used as a scholarly citation. She also quotes questionable websites that have no real credentials, and includes urban myths (like the myths about cola dissolving steak or cleaning engine blocks, which has been dis-proven). It's too bad, because I think the author has something important to say, but I tune out of a book when I realize that the sources are poor; I feel like I can't trust anything that I read from that point on. I don't think the author is being deliberately deceptive, but I also don't think an author should cherry-pick sources without regard for their authenticity.

If you liked The Kind Life or The China Study, this book might be for you. I would encourage any health conscious person to read this. Pirello lays out a lot of no nonsense information about health and eating for a sustainable world. Great book!

This book is a refreshing, down-to-earth (literally) view on what is wrong with the majority of the foods we consume in our culture. She also takes you through how eating a plant-based diet (vegan) can turn your health around.

I bought this book because I started watching Christina on Create and my daughter went Vegan. My daughter dived into the information about food and food ingredients but has yet to utilize any of the recipes.
I’ve just started reading it myself and find that you can gain a good deal of knowledge about what you eat, which depending on your diet may not be all that appetizing
