From the bestselling author of Diet for a New America and The Food Revolution.

Internationally known vegan and bestselling author John Robbins has continued to discuss food politics and food-related issues in his popular website www.johnrobbins.info

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 feed lots 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 topics covered are:
Does Soy Cause Alzheimer's Disease
Infants Growing Breasts?: The Trouble with Hormones in our Milk
Just How Bad is McDonalds?
Chocolate and 21st-century Slavery

Robbin's trenchant and provocative observations into the relationships 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.
