John Robbins is a vegan activist and writer
John Robbins was heir to the Baskin Robbins ice cream empire, but he refused to partake in the family business. He saw that members of his family, who indulged in ice cream eating, died of heart failures and artery clogs.

Robbins has also written books including Diet for a New America. He is married, has children, and resides in Northern California.
