Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

"Mad Cow U.S.A." is the terrifying, true tale that industry hopes to censor. The U.S. has its own versions of the brain-wasting disease killing cows and people in Britain. In the U.K., the meat industry feeding practice of "animal cannibalism" has unleased a deadly human demential easily mistaken for Alzheimer's, and spread by infected meat. Yet, U.S. agribusiness still feeds billions of pounds of animal waste back to pigs, chickens, cows, dogs and cats. Rampton and Stauber reveal an amazing world of brilliant scientists, callous industry, courageous victims and cowardly bureaucrats, united by a mysterious killer that threatens a global epidemic -- unless we heed this warning.

Review:

Mad Cow U.S.A. is not the book to read before you go out for a steak. In fact, it's not really a book to read before eating anything; this chronicle of government cave-in to pressure from the food industry just might scare away your appetite. Authors Sheldon Rampton and John Stauber argue that both the American and British governments colluded with beef producers to suppress important facts about interspecies transmission of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or "mad cow disease"--facts that might have prevented gruesome deaths. Could a British-style BSE epidemic happen in America? In a 1996 TV talk show, Oprah Winfrey attempted to ask the same question, only to find herself slapped with a lawsuit by a group of Texas cattlemen. Their grounds: the so-called agricultural product disparagement laws currently on the books in 13 states; these laws prohibit people from questioning the safety of any agricultural product, shifting the legal burden of proof from the food industry to its watchdogs. What happens when anyone who speaks out about problems with our food supply can be sued into silence? Rampton and Stauber fear grave consequences for public health, and they make a convincing case against these laws--and, inadvertently, for vegetarianism.
