DFNA survives scurrilous attacks
The meat industry spent $50,000 producing a "report"
which purportedly challeneged DFNA, and they have spent millions
of dollars attempting to distract people from Robbins' unavoidable
message: eating animals is killing us.
Despite the cattlemen's checkoff accounts and overflowing corporate

Not surprisingly, these same few individuals front competing vegetarian
organizations and/or promote their own vegetarian materials, which
they trumpet as being far superior. This -- along with their irrational
tirades at the appreciation Robbins' work has generated -- suggests

of the critics, than anything about DFNA.
Expand your horizons
See for yourself! If you haven't done so already, head for Amazon.com,
a bookstore, or your local library and pick up a copy of DFNA. After
you read it, you'll understand why this is one of the most important
books published in the 20th Century, and why it is continuing to
have a dramatic impact on people in the 21st.
