John Robbins could have inherited the Baskin-Robbins empire. But he walked away from the money and the power. Why? He simply didn't want to devote his life to selling ice cream after realizing it makes people unhealthy. So he decided to make a change. Over the last 25 years, his books about healthy eating and healthy living (including bestsellers Diet for a New America and The Food Revolution) have sold millions of copies and been translated into more than 30 languages.
Ocean Robbins was born in a log cabin built by his parents, and grew up eating food they grew on the land together. At age 16, he co-founded Youth for Environmental Sanity (YES!), and went on to direct it for the next 20 years. Ocean's work has taken him all over the world, where he has seen first-hand the powerful impact of the food we eat - not just on our health, but on people and economies everywhere. He is co-author, with his dad and colleague John Robbins, of Voices of the Food Revolution, and CEO of the Food Revolution Network.

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM AUTHOR JOHN ROBBINS:
2) Everyone has an opinion, but that doesn't mean every "expert" is reliable... or truthful. Despite an awesome volume of medical research that has come in over the last 60 years, the average physician receives only 24 hours of nutritional education in all their years of medical school. Advertisements try to sell us nutritional ideas, breakthrough gimmicks and pseudo-scientific diets that have little basis in reality. Many of these supposed "facts" are dangerously misleading, or just plain wrong.
3) People are rising up and making a change, and we are here to help.
Join the millions of people who are concerned about the future of food who want reliable, up to date information from a source they can trust.
When voices are rising up everywhere to preserve access to healthy food, it's never been more important to roll up your sleeves, get involved, listen and be heard.
Why does the Food Revolution matter to you?
A tomato crossed with a... flounder?
You probably already know that big agribusiness is genetically engineering your food.
They don't seem to care about the long-term health problems their practices bring. In fact, there have been NO long term health studies that have looked at the health effect of GMOs on humans.
These corporations are filling your plate with chemicals, and spending billions of dollars marketing processed foods that get people ADDICTED FOR LIFE.
And their plans for profit are slowly poisoning your body.
Now it's time to find out how you and your family can LEARN MORE and take ACTION.
If you're already interested in eating well, this summit will share some groundbreaking new health-INFORMATION THAT MAY SURPRISE YOU.
Even if you're unfamiliar with what it means to eat healthy- there will be plenty of EASY TIPS to get you feeling great about what you eat, and where it comes from.
THINK ABOUT THIS:
3/4 of U.S. health care spending goes to treat chronic diseases, most of which are preventable and linked to the food you eat.
Don't become a statistic! Get empowered and spread the word.
This is one area in your life you can't afford to sit back and do nothing.
It's true that the single most effective step you can take to improve your health is to EAT HEALTHIER FOOD.
And you have a right to the TRUTH, with no corporate deception trying to stuff its pockets with money at your expense.
The time is now to:
- GET INFORMED
- PRIORITIZE YOUR HEALTH
- MAKE CHOICES THAT EMPOWER YOU, YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR WORLD
- STOP BEING VICTIMIZED BY JUNK FOOD MANUFACTURERS
- PUT AN END TO FOOD DECEPTION ON YOUR PLATE
- TAKE BACK YOUR RIGHT TO HEALTHY FOOD AND TRUTHFUL INFORMATION
