Internationally kwn vegan and bestselling author, John Robbins has continued his observations and investigations into food politics and food-related issues of the day on his popular HuffingtonPost column, www.foodrevolution.org. NO HAPPY COWS collects these recent observations together for the first time in book form. Robbins shares his dispatches from the front lines of the food revolution: From his undercover investigations of battery farms and slaughterhouses, to the rise of food contamination, the slave trade behind chocolate and coffee, the sham of 'Vitamin Water' and the effects of hormones on animals and animal products. Among the startling chapters are: * Does Soy Cause Alzheimer's Disease * The Trouble with Hormones in our Milk: Infants Growing Breasts? * Just How Bad is McDonalds? * Chocolate and 21st-century Slavery. Robbin's trenchant and proactive observations into the relationship between animals and the humans who raise them remind us of the importance of working for a more compassionate and environmentally responsible world. Includes an introduction by the author and an up-to-date list of books, films and websites for further information.
