John Robbins

John Robbins is the author of Diet for a New America and The Food Revolution. He is a spokesman for healthy and sustainable living, founder of EarthSave, and chairman of Youth for Environmental Sanity (YES).

John Robbins encourages people to eat a "plant-based diet," which means a vegan diet when applied to Americans.

The term "plant-based diet" can mean something different when discussing trends in a population. For example, when one says that people in rural China eat a plant-based diet, the implication is that they eat rice and vegetables most of the times and not all the time.

Robbins says that plant-based diets are good for the environment, human health, and animal welfare.
