Wed Jul 4 2012 (Updated 07/10/12) "No Happy Cows: Dispatches from the Frontlines of the Food Revolution" by John Robbins
Interview with John Robbins about his latest book "No Happy Cows" On June 27th, George Cadman interviewed local activist and best-selling author John Robbins about his latest book, No Happy Cows: Dispatches From the Front Lines of the Food Revolution.

John and George talked about the revolving door between Big Ag and government agencies like the FDA, the rising cost of healthcare in the United States, the predatory ad campaigns that are directed at children by big fast food companies and the misleading "Happy Cows" advertising campaign of the California Milk Advisory Board.

They also discussed the many ways in which people can make healthier choices for the environment, their communities and their own health.
