Finally someone at the New York Times put out a piece that talks some sense about the seriousness of our culture’s meat-guzzling addiction and its implications for the planet!! This is good to see in such a major media outlet. Will people actually start talking about it?
Read it here: Rethinking the Meat-Guzzler by Mark Bittman
For more straight talk about the meat industry and health, I’ve been picking up pieces of Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnoui. It’s hilarious. And they pull no punches. I won’t quote it here b/c, quite frankly, the language is not kid-friendly and I don’t want to offend anyone.
The part I love about it is that this non-diet ‘diet’ book, which happens to a NYT Bestseller, doesn’t promise fab results with no effort (we all know that’s bullsh*t anyway) – guess what people – you need to work a little to transform yourself and your life! If you don’t face up to that fact, you are deluding yourself.
Seems like maybe some people in the mainstream media are waking up
OK One more good read, that again, I’ve only been getting bits and pieces of (this book lives in my bathroom), is The Exception to the Rulers by Amy Goodman and David Goodman of Democracy Now. Just go to their website.
Also, this post is open to discussion for the 90+ people I sent the article to. Please, feel free to comment! I want to hear what you think!
