Summary
The average American consumes an excessive half-pound (227 grams) of meat per day. To satisfy this huge demand for meat, ten billion animals must be raised and slaughtered each year, according to the Farm Animal Rights Movement. This book will examine the meat consumers eat, delving into various issues including: feedlots, slaughterhouses, processing plants, and the possible harm this system may have on animal welfare, human health, and the environment. Readers also learn about what steps are being taken to make eating meat as safe as possible. Being educated about the meat industry empowers people with the knowledge to make wise choices about their health, and support the local farmers and markets that use sustainable methods for their products. Suggestions for how students can become involved in their school and community in promoting smart farming practices and consumerism are also included.
