Full title: The Face on Your Plate: The Truth about Food
In this revelatory work, Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson shows how food affects our moral selves, our health, and our planet. Masson investigates how denial keeps us from recognizing the animal at the end of our fork and urges readers to consciously make decisions about food.
This man knows animals! In his latest foray into the minds of animals (and humans) Masson poses some important questions about how we see the food on our plate and how as emotional, intelligent beings, can we ignore the suffering of other sentient animals? Intertwined with the thoughtful case histories of cows, chickens, pigs and even fish is undeniable scientific evidence for a vegetarian, if not vegan diet, for the planet, for our health and for our own sense of compassion.
