The book presents two sides of the food industry — one being the need to feed a family, to maintain a tradition, and to make food available to all in abundance at a lower price; the other being the cruelty in treating animals as meat producing machines, plants as metrics for higher yields, and the slow yet unstoppable decay where one trade food quality for a lower price, or a higher price for a self-deceiving moral standpoint.
I did not like the book to be honest. At many points throughout the book I wished that it had citations for scientific facts or statistics. Maybe I am asking too much from a best-seller to be scientifically rigorous. Yet I will remain doubtful if stats come without citation.
