9780393065954: The Face on Your Plate: The Truth About Food

The best-selling author of When Elephants Weep explores our relationship with the animals we call food.

In this revelatory work, Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson shows how food affects our moral selves, our health, and the environment. It raises questions to make us conscious of the decisions behind every bite we take: What effect does eating animals have on our land, waters, even global warming? What are the results of farming practices―debeaking chickens and separating calves from their mothers―on animals and humans? How does the health of animals affect the health of our planet and our bodies? And uniquely, as a psychoanalyst, Masson investigates how denial keeps us from recognizing the animal at the end of our fork―think pig, not bacon―and each food and those that are forbidden. The Face on intellectual, psychological, and emotional expertise over the last twenty years into the pivotal book of the food revolution.

From AudioFile:

This text examines a subject long debated, the morality associated with animal production for food and its effects on human health and natural resources. Each detail of animal abuse associated with food production--from fish to fowl--is included. The content makes a strong case for the vegan lifestyle, which goes beyond food choices to include clothing and personal-care products. Fred Stella's tenor voice maintains a nonjudgmental tone throughout--despite the sometimes-gruesome descriptions. Avoiding vocal variation, he narrates with an even pace and steady cadence between sentences and paragraphs. Stella's clear, crisp voice makes this a beneficial audio experience for both carnivores and herbivores. A.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
