Animal Factory by David Kirby.
At last we are waking up to the facts. We have Fast Food Nation, The Omnivore's Dilemma, Meet Your Meat, Food, Inc., Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and now Animal Factory among some of the great books, films and series to thank for enlightening us on the true provenance of our food.
Swine flu. MRSA. Unusual concentrations of cancer and other diseases. Massive fish kills from algal blooms and flesh-eating parasites.
