Обзор книги "High Steaks Eleanor Boyle"

Each year the average North American ingests well over two hundred pounds of animal protein. Meanwhile the global appetite for meat has increased dramatically. But feeding our meat addiction comes at tremendous cost. Maintaining our current level of consumption is ecologically impossible in the longterm and undermines our personal health and community well-being.High Steaks documents the disastrous consequences of modern large-scale industrial meat production and excessive consumption, including:*The loss of vast tracts of arable land and fresh water to intensive livestock production*Increased pollution, loss of biodiversity, deforestation, and accelerating climate change*The environmental and health impacts of too much animal fat, and of antibiotics and other chemicals in our food.Timely and compelling, this powerful book offers a modest, commonsense approach to a serious problem, suggesting strategies for all of us to cut back on our consumption of animal products and ensure that the meat we do consume is produced in a sustainable, ecologically responsible manner. At the same time, High Steaks describes progressive food policy shifts that will discourage factory farming and encourage people to eat in ways that support ecosystems and personal health.Eleanor Boyle has been teaching and writing for twenty-five years, with a focus on food systems and their social, environmental, and health consequences. As well as working with organizations aiming for better food policy, she holds an MSc in food policy and is an instructor at the Centre for Sustainability at the University of British Columbia.
