The Way We Eat Why Our Food Choices Matter

Tical sights on the food we buy and eat where it comes from how it is produced and whether it was raised humanelyThe Ethics of What We Eat explores the impact our food choices have on humans animals I m not sure I would have liked this book so much if I wasn t already mostly converted On the other hand if I had read it during my still omnivorous years it may well have been the kick in the pants that I needed to actually make a change much earlier than I actually didFar from taking a hardline approach and condemning all non vegans out of hand the authors take a compassionate look at the food choices made by three different families and from that launch a discussion of the impact that those choices have on the wider world The descriptions of factory farming and its effects pull no punches but at the same time the downsides of neo hippie favourites like organic farming and buying local are examined unflinchinglyRealistic and uncompromising without devolving into alienating rhetoric Definitely worth a read for anyone who is uestioning their own food choices or anyone who isn t

Summary The Way We Eat Why Our Food Choices Matter

And the environment Recognizing that not all of us will become vegetarians Singer and Mason offer ways to make healthful humane food choices As they point out You can be ethical without being fanatic Disclaimer don t take my review too seriously because I don t feel ualified to judge the uality of the book It s definitely a good book but I m just rating based on my personal enjoyment Really eye opening but after like the first half I felt like I got the point Learned a lot about how to make better choices and how Whole Foods is actually a super cool and awesome concept until it got eaten up by But also learned that literally almost EVERYTHING will have some sort of negative impact on the environment or animals even when you try to buy localorganic The cover a section on the ethics of dumpster diversfreegans which I wasn t expecting but was interesting Even just finishing your plate it an act of humanity of preventing waste excess damage to the environment and animals I thought it was interesting how obesity and other ailments of the affluent are harmful to the environment because you are causing an unneeded and excess demand to purge environmental resources and farm animals Best part of the book I love the breadth of the effects of your dollar of what you pay for that is covered A lot of people think vegetarians are just about saving animals BUT THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO THE PROCESS By making better choices you can make an impact on the environment animal cruelty farm worker safety living wages etcAnyway food is political duh and where you buy you food from whom you buy your food from is also political So vote with your dollars where you can
