"Kathy Freston and Bruce Friedrich have written a powerful and compelling book that will help to catalyze the type of food revolution that is so desperately needed at this point in our world's history. The book is very useful on a personal level, clearly and concisely providing not only the philosophical, scientific and economic arguments for clean protein but also all of the ingredients to allow individuals to easily incorporate clean protein concepts into their daily lives. Physicians and veterinarians should be among those leading the charge given the enormous implications for improving human and nonhuman health, and for helping to secure the ultimate survival of our planet and all of its inhabitants."
