Planet Heal Thyself ~ Review

Planet Heal Thyself
By Jordan Rubin

The Revolution of 
in Body, Mind, and Planet

In an effort to be ever more productive in our efforts to feed the world we have allowed technological and biological advances to damage not only the world we once knew but also sacrificed our own health and well-being along the way.

Production and profit at any cost has become the norm.  Mega farms have swallowed up many smaller family farms.  And in the process we have seen a decline in the nutritional quality of the food that is produced for consumption.

Each person has a choice to be part of the solution or add to the problem.  As the author points out "you are what they eat," and this refers to both plant and animal based foods. The advances in farming has resulted in the destruction of much of the nutrient rich topsoil. With this poor quality soil the plants and grasses that feed not only humanity but the animals that exist side-by-side with us have become deprived.

The author Jordan Rubin takes us on his journey of recapturing his health and wellness through a drastic change in how he was living and what he has learned along the way. This is a book that after reading you'll want to share with family and friends.

Living in a farming community that has been around for generations as well as a vegetarian I found this book to be both enlightening and terrifying in seeing the damage we have wrought upon the world we have been commanded to care for.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher through TBCN/BookFun in exchange for my honest review.
