    Eating is about more than satisfying our hunger. It's also about the environment, social justice, personal development, and sustainable living. Many Americans already know this. We're eating less red meat and more organically produced foods, and most restaurants offer vegetarian options. But do we really know the truth about mechanized animal farming and slaughterhouses, herbicide and pesticide use, and labels that promise "Certified Humane"?

    "Interesting, but leaves something to be desired"
    Overall

    I've been reading related books like those by Marion Nestle, the _Walmart Effect_, as well as documentaries like _Super Size Me_ and I was expecting alot from this book. (Can you tell I'm on a bit of a consumer awareness campaign for myself?) Perhaps that was my problem: expectations. After reading _Walmart Effect_ which I felt was written quite well and with a fair look at both sides of the argument around Walmart, this book is in many ways one-sided in how it presents its material. I *will* reconsider what I eat in the future (beef, pork, and chicken), so in that sense, the authors have enlightened me, but I would have liked a more balanced presentation of the facts provided.
