Σύνοψη του βιβλίου "Gristle"

More than ever before meat is making headlines. Contamination cases are on the rise, obesity has become pandemic and industrial livestock farming is the cause of 20% of greenhouse emissions. It is little wonder that vegetarianism has moved from the fringes to the mainstream as evidence accumulates in favour of the many benefits of meatlessness. Multi-platinum musician Moby, one of the world's most famous vegans, brings together 10 leading foodies, doctors, politicians and business leaders to create a concise guide to making informed choices about meat consumption.
