More people than ever before are paying attention to the food they buy and eat: where it comes from, how it's produced, and whether or not it was raised humanely. Singer and Mason examine the diets of three typical families to explore the impact our food choices have on the future of life on earth. They also identify six empowering ethical principles that conscientious consumers should consider when shopping for groceries or eating out. Speaking to the mainstream, their advice reflects this principle: "You can be ethical without being fanatical."

    " I don't always agree with Peter Singer, but he always makes me think. "

    " Obviously bias and needs to be read with close caution and consideration to his views... But very insightful and revealing in the world of foods. "

    " A great and thought-provoking look at current food issues from the perspective of three families -- one that lives in Arkansas and shops at Wal-Mart, one that lives in the Nertheast and shops at Trader Joe's and farmer's markets, and one that lived in Kansas and keep a vegan household. Unlike other recent books on food issues, this one does not shy away from the moral issues that surround the decision to eat factory-farmed meat. No doubt because Peter Singer is a co-author. "

    " I read this book for a class I was taking. It made me aware of all the different things we need to consider when taking that first bite. Do I change my ways and try to eat more ethically or put blinders on and continue on the path I have been on? "
