How will we feed the world, and ourselves? Does it require intensive farming of animals, or genetic engineering, or both? Or is there an alternative?
This seminal and ground-breaking book, by international experts on all aspects of food production, farming and animal welfare, shows that there is an alternative. An alternative which is healthier for us, kinder to animals, more productive of nutritious food and less damaging to the environment. Specifically, we do not have to devote the present enormous resources to the production of meat, subjecting animals to often appalling treatment and creating both unfair food distribution and a poor diet. Animal welfare, human welfare and the welfare of the planet go hand in hand.
A book which will challenge its readers to think about the basis, not just of their own eating habits, but of the whole system of agriculture and the food market
