Read full description of the books The Face on Your Plate: The Truth About Food:I have been a vegetarian for a number of years, and leaning toward being a vegan. That is to say, I try to avoid milk, cheese, and eggs. So, most of the ideas in this book are not new to me. Most animals kept in captivity for the purpose of food really do suffer. Immensely. There are no two ways about it.
Jeffrey Masson rebuts all of the sayings that meat-eaters use to rationalize their addiction to meat, poultry, and fish. And he makes a every one of the rationalizations sound truly pathetic. There are no good reasons for eating meat; just denials. Masson goes into some depth, about why meat-eaters are in denial. Basically, people just don't want to think about it; the horrendous suffering that animals undergo--all animals that are used for food--is overwhelming.
The one surprising thing that Masson writes is that if you want to do the simplest thing that will reduce animal suffering the most, it would be to avoid milk, cheese, and eggs. Masson maintains that the harvesting of dairy products actually causes more suffering than the harvesting of meat! He goes into some detail as to why this is; and after understanding the reasoning behind this claim, I would have to agree.
Of course, the reasons for being a vegan can go beyond simply the moralistic ideas of preventing suffering. The health advantages are enormous. The reduction of environmental harm is huge, too.
I strongly recommend this excellent book to all who really care about the world, about animals, and their own health.
