Global meat consumption and production has increased dramatically over the past 40 years, but still many of us refuse to stop and truly consider the implications of this. The meat produced today is highly industrialized and, like it or not, eating it has serious implications-for animals, humans, and the planet we share. Eating Animals is one man's quest to find out what it truly means to eat meat in this day and age. It explores where meat comes from, the practicalities of providing edible flesh for a swelling world populous, and how necessary a meat-based diet truly is. Not to be mistaken for simple propaganda for a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, this book instead offers a thorough, objective, and balanced account of what animal agriculture looks like in the present day-and the full implications of choosing to eat animals. You will learn: · The hidden costs of industrialized farming · Why we choose to eat certain animals and domesticate others · The relationship between morality and diet choice.
