This is a life-changing book for me. I knew that our foods today were not as healthy as in the past due to food industrialization, but I had read nothing in depth. I am not a vegetarian or vegan and probably won't change to either, but I have learned it may be more important how the food gets to you than what it is.
I never realized that cattle do not, by nature, eat corn, and for production sake, we are forcing them to eat corn, giving them medications so they can digest it, providing antibiotics because the corn makes them sick , and adding hormones for growth. This is not to mention the pesticides and fertilizers in the corn. Talk about trying to fool Mother Nature! After I have read this book, I will investigate where my food comes from and how it was produced.
There are dilemma's about the ethics of killing animals, but I would be more comfortable eating an animal that lived a normal life in health who did not suffer ,than one force fed to provide me with a cheaper meal.
Bottom line...our rushed life style and lowered cost in the name of health will continue to make us a very unhealthy nation, indeed.
