The author summs up the book in his author's notes. "...while parts of this book deal with economics, medicine,and ecology, I'm not an economist, a doctor, or an ecologist." I found it hard to believe the author took a little information and drew such biased conclusions. I was surprised the book was published until I learned that the publisher, Conari Press, is the second largest publisher of occult books. The book did help me understand how one group like vegans, can latch on to such misinformation as gospel to propel their cause. If you read the book be skeptical of what you read and do your own research into the topics.

The government was broken long before Obama arrived in Washington. This book exposes the politics involved with our food supply, especially meat and dairy. It shows how conflict between the big food producers and processers and the government regulating agencies is always decided in favor of the producers/processers, with very little concern for what is really best for the mostly uninformed consumer. This book will make you want to eat as naturally and close to home as possible!

The author readily describes himself as a lawyer but I disagree with the 1 star finding, this book is well researched and much of he health aspects have been pretty much determined to be in line with his conclusions. I have no intention of "going vegan", I like venison and wild game/wildcaught fish too much, but this book is a distrubing eye opener regarding the government agencies that are suppose to protect us are captured, to use the writers words, by the industry they are suppose to over see. My doctor has been advising me to cut back on meat & daily, this book certainly will help me do that. Yes, it has a bias, but even once you factor that out it is also eye opening.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
