Eating Animals reveals the true impact of the modern-day meat industry and details the environmental, health-related, and ethical consequences of eating meat.
by Jonathan Safran Foer
As a person who doesn't eat meat moves through life, they often must deal with being constantly asked why they chose to give it up.
Vegetarians are often asked if they made that life decision based on ethics or health reasons. With his book Eating Animals, Jonathan Safran Foer shows us that both aspects are good reasons for becoming a vegetarian or a vegan.
Foer argues that today, there is hardly any other ethical eating choice. We should also recognize that meat production has an extremely negative impact on our health and on the environment.
If we were to one day encounter a form of life more powerful and intelligent than our own, and it regarded us as we regard fish, what would be our argument against being eaten?
