Every time we eat, we have the power to radically transform the world we live in. Our choices can help alleviate the most pressing issues we face today: the climate crisis, infectious and chronic diseases, human exploitation and, of course, non-human exploitation. Undeniably, these issues can be uncomfortable to learn about but the benefits of doing so cannot be overstated. It is quite literally a matter of life and death.Through exploring the major ways that our current system of animal farming affects the world around us, as well as the cultural and psychological factors that drive our behaviours, This Is Vegan Propaganda answers the pressing question, is there a better way? Whether you are a vegan already or curious to learn more, this book will show you the other side of the story that has been hidden for far too long. Based on years of research and conversations with slaughterhouse workers and farmers, to animal rights philosophers, environmentalists and everyday consumers, vegan educator and public speaker Ed Winters will give you the knowledge to understand the true scale and enormity of the issues at stake. This Is Vegan Propaganda is the empowering and groundbreaking book on veganism that everyone, vegan and sceptic alike, needs to read.
I can’t put this book down. It’s easy to read even for a not natively English speaking person and the massive amount of significant information it contains is incredible. Very important work, thank you, Ed!
Everyone should read this book to better understand why our current food system is so incredibly harmful. Not only for the animals we abuse, but also for the planet and our society.I’ve already known Ed from his discussions and lectures as brilliant speaker, but with this book he proves that he is also a great writer. He delivers scientific facts and personal experiences without ever sounding like an unsymphatic Know-it-all. He knows where he comes from (consumimg meat, dairy and eggs) and speaks directly to those who are facing the same challenge.This book covers all the important topics that are necessary to know about our current food system, such as animal exploitation, increased danger of pandemica/epidemics, personal health and nutrition, media bias, lobbyism, psychological barriers, morality and environmental impact, in a easy readable way. There is no previous knowledge needed and I am sure that even those who are already into the topic will find new information and insights.Therefore I can strongly recommend this book for everyone. Buy it, borrow it, talk about it. Spread veganism for a better future.
This is a must read.
Thank you Ed for this amazing book! Its amazing and i can recommend it to everybody. Even to omnivors
10 months ago I challenged myself to go vegan for one month (for health reasons, spoiler: I felt absolutely great). I’d loved eating any kind of foods my whole life and wasn’t sure it was for me.It encouraged me to also learn about the catastrophic environmental impact of a animal agriculture. Feeling powerless in the face of climate change, turning to a plant based diet started making sense to me.I’m from Switzerland and absolutely loved cheese, but deep down always knew it wasn’t so great for my digestion, skin and overall health. But then I learned about the processes that happens behind the scenes in the dairy industry (and other animal farming practices). After almost a year I do not miss it anymore.I used to joke about veganism and how it was way too extreme for me. But rarely has a change of behavior been so impactful and meaningful in my life.I initially feared the comments of other people around me, at home and at work. But the change has sparked curiosity and led to countless discussions. This book will no doubt help me bring a constructive and non-judgmental perspective to the table.Thank you Ed for your invaluable work and for such a well-researched and easy-to-read book.
Der Autor bringt etliche – bestens belegte – Argumente vor die der Nutztierausbeutung ihre Lügen vor Augen hält. (Leider lesen solche Bücher meist nur jene die eh schon halbwegs von einer Sache überzeugt sind). Ärgerlich, dass die gleichen Argumente immer wieder von neuem vorgebracht werden müssen, obwohl die Evidenzen längst unabweisbar vorliegen.Es zeigt sich, dass hierbei noch die besten Argumente ein hartes Los haben dort wo mächtige Partialinteressen ihre Macht und Lobby-Arbeit in die Waagschale werfen können/dürfen.Auf alle Fälle ein empfehlenswertes Buch, gründlich recherchierten Fakten, die endlich konkrete Folgen zeitigen müssen. (Nicht zuletzt im Interesse des Menschen sei angefügt, auch wenn der Autor aus der tierethischen `Ecke` kommt).
The book is really eye opening and I learned a lot.
Beschenkte Veganerin hat sich sehr gefreut
