Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism – Melanie Joy
How can we love our pets and value kindness to animals generally, yet consume meat from corporations that severely abuse and slaughter 10 billion sentient creatures a year?
Melanie Joy addresses this question and builds a compelling case for Veganism. She is the ultimate Veganista! In addition, Joy examines corporate animal agribusiness, and the millions of dollars they spend creating the fiction that these animals live outside on idyllic farms. Joy encourages readers to become informed about the violence and suffering bound up with mainstream food choices and to begin reducing consumption of animal products.
She offers insight into regaining empathy for suffering farmed animals as part of a vital process of personal and societal integration, wherein values, beliefs, and behavior come into harmony. Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism, this is a book for Animal rights activists, those interested in healthy eating and local food and Vegans.
