Explores humanity's relationship with animals that are cultivated for food, discussing the moral, health, and environmental consequences of meat consumption as well as how eating meat is regarded in a variety of cultures.

Norton Pub
In this revelatory work, Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson shows how food affects our moral selves, our health, and the environment. It raises questions to make us conscious of the decisions behind every bite we take: What effect does eating animals have on our land, waters, even global warming? What are the results of farming practices—debeaking chickens and separating calves from their mothers—on animals and humans? How does the health of animals affect the health of our planet and our bodies? And uniquely, as a psychoanalyst, Masson investigates how denial keeps us from recognizing the animal at the end of our fork—think pig, not bacon—and each food and those that are forbidden. The Face on intellectual, psychological, and emotional expertise over the last twenty years into the pivotal book of the food revolution.
The best-selling author of When Elephants Weep explores our relationship with the animals we call food.

This is a wonderful book that is focused on the health and well being of people and animals. Heavily researched and end noted but written in easy to understand prose. Debunks popular myths and assumptions surrounding food and provides solutions and answers as to how to live healthfully without cruelty.
