The Food Revolution Summit

It's that time of year again when Ocean and John Robbins are doing their free online Food Summit. While lots of different people are doing summits now, I still think this Food Revolution Summit is the best. I look forward to it every year at this time. Unlike paying thousands of dollars to go on the Holistic Holiday at Sea cruise or spending hundreds of dollars plus travel costs to attend a conference, this food conference is absolutely free. And the quality of the talks is equal to or even better than some of the talks that you get in those venues where you pay to play.

This year's Food Revolution Summit is another promising event. Speakers for this year's summit include:

  • Dr. Joel Fuhrman, MD speaking on Nutritional Excellence for Optimal Health
  • Dr. Dean Ornish, MD speaking on Healing Hearts and Growing Happiness
  • Dr. Michael Greger, MD speaking on Simple Foods to Supercharge Your Health
  • Dr. Joel Kahn, MD speaking on How to End Heart Disease
  • Dr. Neal Barnard, MD speaking on What Everyone Needs to Know About Dairy
  • Vandana Shiva, PhD speaking on How Your Food Choices Shape the World
  • Chris Wark speaking on How I Beat Cancer (and You Can Too)
  • Daniel Amen, MD speaking on Foods Your Brain Will Love
  • Vani Hari speaking on Hazardous Chemicals No One Should Eat
  • Dr. Mark Hyman, MD speaking on Using Food to Nourish Healthy Communities
  • Kris Carr speaking on Learning to Love Your Precious Life
  • Dr. Dale Bredesen, MD speaking on The End of Alzheimers
  • Dr. David Perlmutter, MD speaking on New Discoveries About Brain and Gut Health
  • Susan Peirce Thompson, PhD speaking on The Real Science on Weight Loss
  • Michael Bernard Beckwith speaking on Food for Your Body, Mind and Soul
  • Anna Lappe speaking on Busting the Biggest Food Myths
  • Saru Jayaraman, JD speaking on Sexual Harassment in the Food Industry

  • Andrew Kimbrell, JD speaking on Updates from the Front Lines of Food Safety
  • Drs Dean and Ayesha Sherzai, MD speaking on Preventing Dementia With Nutrition
  • Dr. William Li, MD speaking on The Science of Cancer Prevention
  • Dr. David Katz, MD speaking on Have Your Taste Buds Been Hijacked?
  • Anthony William speaking on Hidden Healing Powers of Fruits and Vegetables
  • Carey Gillam speaking on The Great Glyphosate Coverup
And interviewing each of these speakers will be John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America and son of the founder of Baskin-Robbins. I met John Robbins a couple of years ago when I went to a retreat at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, and I had the opportunity to talk to John. He has quite an interesting story to tell about how he turned down a fortune as the heir to the Baskin-Robbins empire. Not only did he turn down the fortune, but he was on the outs with his family due to positions he took on food. But by drawing the connection between early deaths of family members and the amounts of ice cream they were eating, John knew he couldn't continue with the family business in good conscious.

If you've never heard John Robbins speak or if you've never heard him conduct an interview, you are in for a treat by listening to this summit. John is one of the most insightful people I've ever met, and his questions and comments are dynamite. And they are always interesting and promote good discussion and insight. I've been listening to his Food Revolution Summit for years, and I find that I always come away having learned something.

So, I recommend this Summit to all of my blog readers. It's free. You don't have to travel anywhere. All you need to do is put aside the time each day. You can pick the talks you want to listen to or you can listen to them all. Usually, the maximum amount of time invested turns out to be about three hours a day. For me, I've always found this to be three hours well spent.

The Food Revolution Summit will be starting on April 28 and ending on May 6. To sign up for it, just click here on The Food Revolution Summit. You'll be glad you did, even if you just end up listening to only one of the talks. I know I'm looking forward to it.
