Peter Singer Ë 1 READ READ Ô 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

Peter Singer Ë 1 READ READ Ô The Way We Eat Why Our Food Choices Matter Peter Singer the groundbreaking ethicist whom The New Yorker calls the most influential philosopher alive teams up again with Jim Mason his coauthor on the acclaimed Animal Factories to set their cri. This is a fantastic book written in a non academic style covering issues such an animal welfare organic foods locally grown foods with a surprising twist on that choice and fair trade items I found this book incredibly well researched and open to empirical facts rather than demonstrating any blind allegiance to any one particular view point After reading this book I ve entered into several conversations with vegananimal rights friends of mine who generally criticize Singer who was once the philosophical head of the animals rights movement and is now seen generally as having sold out to places such as Whole Foods for his shift towards animal welfarism rather than animal rights I was directed to a website called humane myths that discusses the myths behind humanely raised food though I actually found it supported my animal welfarist feelings rather than refuted them Anyways this is an excellent book though I m sure animal rightists would disagree but I highly recommend it to all who wish to eat ethically and see that decision as one filled with nuances and trade offs rather than as a black and white proposition as so many animal rightists do
