Back cover copy

You Don't Need Meat was first published in the United Kingdom, where it quickly became a runaway #1 bestseller. Written with a charming mixture of science, humor, and ethics, You Don't Need Meat investigates some of the same shocking conditions that made Fast Food Nation and Dominion such important and ground-breaking works. This completely revised and updated edition will give you all the facts you need about the meat you eat--both from a humane perspective and as a guide for choosing food that is safe for you and your family.
