There are many ways one can look at the benefit of a particular diet, and most of these perspectives are based on what is good for the consumer.  But when it comes to the aspect of plant based diets and compassion towards animals, there are few individuals who can match Gene Baur’s authority and track record, and it is for that reason that Gene has been called the “conscience of the food movement” by Time Magazine.

Gene is the co founder and president of Farm Sanctuary, America’s leading farm animal protection organization.  He played a significant role in passing the first U.S. laws to prohibit cruel farming systems – including the California ban on foie gras. His efforts have been covered by leading news organizations, and his books, entitled: Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food, and Living the Farm Sanctuary Life – The ultimate guide to eating mindfully, living longer, and feeling better every day.
