Tina Volpe, Author of The Fast Food Craze chats with Judyth Piazza

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Tina Volpe was raised in Lake View Terrace, California, a northern horsy suburb of Los Angeles. As a child, Volpe`s home included many farm animals, most of which were eventually slaughtered for food for the family. Volpe endured many serious emotional blows of family friends (pigs, cows and chickens) being hung from trees while she was at school.  This had a lifetime effect on her. 

As a result of her love for, and interaction with, animals, Volpe became a vegetarian over three decades ago. Over the past seven years, she has been studying the farm industry and the affects its business decisions and resulting procedures have on animals. Volpe also realized that the fast food giants are a large cause of this suffering. This research convinced her that while advocacy and activist groups have made advances in informing the public about farm industry carelessness, that more efforts are needed because animals are still suffering at the hand of businesses.

Tina Volpe is the author of the book The Fast Food Craze, Wreaking Havoc on Our Bodies and Our Animals "  She is a health researcher, 32 year vegetarian, speaker, educator/consultant, television guest appearing all over the country, radio host of the top rated show Wake Up America " on GlobalTalk Radio, and published columnist.  Tina is now affiliated with PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) as a "Heart Health" speaker, and SPEAK, as a Humane Educator.   She lives in Northern Arizona
