In this book Peter Singer and Jim Mason embark on a remarkable journey to investigate the food choices we make. Their findings are both shocking and illuminating.
Their adventure begins at the dinner tables of three families with differing tastes and shopping habits. From this starting point the authors scrutinise every food group, including the factory farming of cattle and pigs, of chicken and fish. They explore the increase of genetically modified foods now available from our supermarket shelves, the burgeoning organic food movement, the fair trade movement and the pros and cons of buying locally. And they explain how it is possible to be an ethical consumer in the twenty-first century.
The Ethics Of What We Eat is a remarkable book, full of wisdom and commonsense, that may change your eating habits forever.
