Farmageddon: The True Cost of Cheap Meat by Philip Lymbery with Isabel Oakeshott
We are reaching a tipping point as the farming revolution threatens our countryside, health, and the quality of our food worldwide. Half of all antibiotics used worldwide (up to 80% in US) are routinely given to industrially farmed animals, contributing to the emergence of deadly antibiotic-resistant superbugs. Soya and grain that could nourish the world's poorest people are now grown increasingly as animal fodder.
Farmageddon is a fascinating and terrifying investigative journey behind the closed doors of a runaway industry across the world. It is both a wake-up call to change our current food production and eating practices and an attempt to find a way to a better farming future.
