In our book’s final chapter, entitled A Return to Harmony, we appeal to caring and thoughtful people everywhere to come together and “end the madness” of the many components and consequences of our grossly harmful, wasteful, cruel and unsustainable Western diet. The last two paragraphs are provided here:
In a world full of sick, obese, or starving people, suffering animals and rapidly disappearing natural resources; how can we possibly not come together and end all of this madness once and for all? Given what you now know—if you don’t take action—what will you tell your adult grandchildren someday when they ask why you didn’t?
Ultimately, your decision is a simple matter of health, hope, and harmony. As each of us begins to take charge of his or her own health, we simultaneously plant the seeds of hope, accelerating the pace with which the human race can return to living in harmony with nature. Since we consider ourselves smarter than all the other creatures, we should be able to figure out how to make our world a better place. The time for that action is now.
“You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing, there will be no result.”—Mahatma Gandhi
Today, I have selected a few previous posts that clearly represent what I mean by the word madness.

Important Movies. Finally, for your week-end viewing pleasure, I have once again provided two very important movies. Just in case you haven’t seem them yet, get yourself some popcorn (or celery), and watch these great world-changing documentaries with your family (free). They are about 1.5 hours each and are likely to leave you feeling differently about the role of the human race on our precious planet.
