I was excited to come across this new book written by Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan. The book, The Real Food Revolution, reviews our food systems, explores the negative impacts on our health and the planet due to our current food practices, proposes changes to the current farm bill and outlines action steps that readers can take. Watch his video here about more of the inspiration behind the book.
This book follows his previous publication, A Mindful Nation, about the powers of the mind and meditation. Kudos to Congressman Tim Ryan! We need more forward thinking politicians like him. The state of our abysmal nutrition and faltering health truly needs to be at the forefront of the political agenda. If you need any convincing about the urgency of this issue in terms of not only our personal and environmental health but also our future economic stability and national security then take a look at Dr. Mark Hyman’s review of The Real Food Revolution.
