John Robbins

Food and environmental expert exploring the secrets of healthy longevity.

 

“None of us individually can thrive on our own.  We need clean water, we need clean air, and we need the diversity of species - we need each other.  We need a society that enriches and validates the individual while at the same time embedding the individual in a cooperation, in a connectivity with others that's mutually respectful.  We need each and every one of us to be respected for who we are.  There is no thriving on the backs of others...”
- John Robbins
