In 1996, when Howard Lyman warned America on The Oprah Winfrey Show that Mad Cow Disease was coming to America, offended cattlemen sued him and Oprah both. Not only were Lyman and Oprah vindicated in court, but events have proved many of Lyman's predictions absolutely right. Mad Cow Disease has come to America, and Lyman argues persuasively in No More Bull! that the problem will only grow more deadly until our government deals with it seriously. In Mad Cowboy, Lyman, a fourth-generation Montana rancher turned vegetarian then vegan, told the story of his personal transformation after a spinal tumor, which he believes was caused by agricultural chemicals, nearly left him paralyzed. In No More Bull!, Lyman uses his humor, compassion, firsthand experience in agriculture, and command of the facts of health to argue that we might all profit by transforming our diets. He makes a powerful case that Alzheimer's is yet another disease linked to eating meat. And he explains that the steak at the heart of your dinner plate not only may destroy your own heart but actually offers no more nutritional value than a doughnut! If you've been confused by the competing claims of the Atkins Diet, the South Beach Diet, and other fad diets, No More Bull! is the book that will set you straight. Its pure, unvarnished truth is told with down-home common sense. Lyman's got a message for meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans -- and the message of No More Bull! is that we can all do better for ourselves and the planet.
"In a witty but candid and no-nonsense language, Howard Lyman speaks a truth about health that needs telling. Few messages are more important for our times and almost no one has the personally compelling experiences that make Lyman's telling of the story so unique and so persuasive. This is a fun but serious book to read. Try it and I think you'll like it!" -- T. Colin Campbell, PhD., Jacob Gould Schuman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry, Cornell University
"Reading No More Bull is an amazing experience. It is a wonder how a book can be such a pleasure to read, so entertaining and enjoyable, and yet carry such a profoundly important message. If you read this book, several things will happen. There will be more health in your life. There will be more joy in your life. And you will be playing a part in the greater healing our troubled world so greatly needs." -- John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America
