“There are no happy cows in modern industrialized agriculture.”
John Robbins is widely considered one of the most eloquent and powerful spokespersons in the world for a sane, ethical, and sustainable future. The bestselling author of Diet for a New America and The Food Revolution, he has continued his observations and investigations into food politics and food-related issues of the day in his popular Huffington Post column.
No Happy Cows: Dispatches from the Frontlines of the Food Revolution, is a collection of his most recent columns along with never before published material. In No Happy Cows, Robbins gives you potent and useful information on hot topics like:
- Are Factory Farms becoming biological weapons factories?

- What’s the truth about Vitaminwater? Is it a healthy alternative, or a deceptively marketed bottle of junk food?

- There’s a good chance you consume foods every day that contain genetically modified organisms. They may be in your pantry right now. What are they, and why does it matter?
- What’s the skinny on grassfed beef? Is it really healthier and more sustainable?

“John Robbins has inspired a revolution, plain and simple. He saw things that were wrong in the food industry long before any of us did, and with his brilliant research and compelling insight, caused a seismic shift in the way we Americans behold our dinner plates. This book is not only clarifying in terms of the physical, environmental, and spiritual effects of food, but it is inspiring enough to cause material change.”
— Kathy Freston, New York Times bestselling author of Quantum Wellness and Veganist
“John Robbins is the leading voice in the world for restoring humanity to its proper relationship with food, the Earth, and health.”
— Paul Hawken, author of Natural Capitalism
