What do multiplatinum-selling musician Moby and Global Animal Partnership Executive Director Miyun Park have in common?
They’re coeditors of the new book Gristle: From Factory Farms to Food Safety, an info-packed guide to the consequences of factory farming.
Gristle covers “the rarely publicized ramifications of industrialized farmed animal production and meat, egg and milk consumption on the environment, human health, communities, workers, taxpayers, zoonotic diseases, global warming, global hunger and, of course, the animals themselves,” Moby writes. “There are huge and egregiously well-financed interests who want to keep the truth of animal production hidden.”
The book’s contributors include:
- John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Market
- Paul Willis, manager of humane and sustainable Niman Ranch
- Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States
- Christine Chavez and Julie Chavez Rodriguez, human rights activists and Cesar Chavez’s granddaughters
