Overview

Eating mammals puts you at significantly increased risk for heart disease, cancer, diabetes and stroke. It also is not sustainable: the production and consumption of mammal meat is undermining the very ecosystems on which we depend.

In this wonderful and easy‐to‐read treatise on our dietary decisions, Adam Rogers explains how eliminating -- or even just reducing -- mammals from our menu can dramatically improve our personal health, while restoring the ecological balance of the environment.

This book is bound to make you think differently about eating mammals -- both because of a special bond we share with them, and because of an understanding that to eat mammals (when we don't have to) makes no sense from a variety of perspectives including that of our health, the environment and the economy.

About the Author

Adam Rogers has been exploring the world and writing about it for more than 40 years, visiting more than 130 countries. He first began to question the links between diet, well-being, and the environment at the age of 15, after reading Diet for a Small Planet, the 1971 bestselling book written by Frances Moore Lappé. His first career effort was as a short order cook and then a sous chef at Charlies, the only French restaurant in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada, where he grew up. Despite being able to grill the best Chateaubriand in town, Adam became a vegetarian – which he later adapted to exclude just mammals, as outlined in this book.

Adam is the former editor of Earth News, and the author of several books on both travel and environmental issues. He worked for the United Nations in various capacities for 22 years before taking early retirement in 2018. and now divides his time between New Haven, Connecticut, Manhattan and Washington, DC.
