Few consumers are aware of the economic forces behind the production of meat, fish, eggs, and dairy. Yet omnivore and herbivore alike, the forces of meatonomics affect us in many ways. Most importantly, we’ve lost the ability to decide for ourselves what – and how much – to eat. Those decisions are made for us by animal food producers who control our buying choices with artificially-low prices, misleading messaging, and heavy control over legislation and regulation. Learn how and why they do it and how you can respond. Written in a clear and accessible style, Meatonomics provides vital insight into how the economics of animal food production influence our spending, eating, health, prosperity, and longevity. Meatonomics is the first book to add up the huge “externalized” costs that the animal food system imposes on taxpayers, animals and the environment, and it finds these costs total about $414 billion yearly. With yearly retail sales of around $250 billion, that means that for every $1 of product they sell, meat and dairy producers impose almost $2 in hidden costs on the rest of us. But if producers were forced to internalize these costs, a $4 Big Mac would cost about $11.

The Meaty Truth is an eye-opening look at the massive problems caused by the American population’s food supply. Water, meat, and milk and other dairy products are filled with toxins, antibiotics, untested growth hormones, ammonia, and animal pus and manure. The current conditions of the food production industry must drastically improve, and until they do, it is absolutely vital to monitor what you eat. Castle and Goodman take a hard-hitting look at what America is putting into its food, the negative effects this has on the world, and the best ways to make healthy, informed decisions about eating. As the antibiotic age ends, the rise of pandemic diseases is approaching. Approximately half of the illnesses that claim American lives today are related to what we eat, and our health-care system is focused on treating the sick, not preventing illnesses from occurring. To fix our health problems, to continue feeding the world’s ever-growing population, and to save our planet from ecological destruction, we can no longer avoid making changes to how American meat and dairy are produced. This guide is easy to read, applicable to anyone’s lifestyle, and impossible to put down.

What The Health is the official, stand-alone companion book to the groundbreaking documentary of the same name, directed by Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn, directors of the award-winning documentary, Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret. If the film is a peephole, then this book knocks down the entire door, diving into expanded interviews, extensive research, and personal narratives. Scientific literature shows that eating saturated fatmainly found in animal products like meat, dairy, and eggsis more strongly associated with death than smoking cigarettes. Think about that. If, at a neighborhood cookout, the dad next door offered youand your childa cigarette and a light, how would you react? And yet we accept, with thanks, the glistening beef burgers from that same dad. Whats the difference between taking the cigarette and the burger? The smell and the taste. The social assumptions. The habits. The lack of knowledge. Journey with Kip and Keegan as they crisscross the country, talking to physicians, dietitians, cardiologists, pediatricians, bariatric surgeons, lawyers, economists, activists, and food safety advocates in a passionate search for the truth about the food we eat, and the stunning implications for our health and the countrys cascade of killer diseases. Along the way they meet Ren Miller, whose home is routinely drenched by manure cannons from the factory farm next door; slaughterhouse vet Dr. Lester Friedlander who blew the whistle on Mad Cow Disease; political prisoner Jake Conroy; and world-class athletes like former NFL-defensive lineman David Carter and ultra-endurance athlete Rich Roll, who completed 5 Ironman triathlons in under a week, and many other fascinating characters, each with their own piece of the puzzle. There is a health revolution brewing. Many people know theres something terribly broken about the industrial food, medical, and pharmaceutical systems, but they dont know what it is. Its no wonder, because there is an intricate political and corporate apparatus in place to keep them from finding out. People think heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are inherited, not realizing that what theyve actually inherited are the eating habits of their parents and grandparents. Lifestyle choices like diet and (lack of) exercise are responsible for about 70 percent of deaths in this country. Diseases that kill millions can be prevented, or even reversed. What The Health takes you on an adventure, uncovering the lethal entwining of the food, medical, and pharmaceutical industries with our own government, and the corporate, legislative web designed to confuse the public and keep Americans chronicallyand profitablyill.

The ocean. She is sustenance, the very lifeblood of our planet listen to the voice of her eternal heartbeat. Part memoir, part treatise on ocean conservation, John Merryfield's true stories of surfing, and life along the Baja, Mexico coast are infused with the vivid Sea of Cortez's fauna and flora, the colorful Mexican culture, and the simple healing qualities of water, with the impassioned voice of a poet. In brief lyrical vignettes, in search of surf and self, at times battered and broken, and filled with insights, missteps, and hope, John asks the question,"How do surfing and our connection to the ocean raise our consciousness?" When we see ourselves and each other as "mini-oceans, wild, robust, salt-water seas" -- our relationship with the ocean itself changes, placing us directly in the path of wonder, and connecting us to the world around us in a profoundly personal way. * * * * * * * A moving, and at times heart-wrenching memoir, John Merryfield describes how surfing for him is more than a way of life. It is a form of spiritual exercise, a method of communion striving to heal the wounds of the world. Jasmin Singer, author of Always Too Much and Never Enough Fish Out of Water brings to life a kaleidoscope of watercolors that rests within a vast ocean through his unique experiences. I walked away with a greater appreciation of our ocean covered planet that we are gifted to call home. Benjamin Allen, author of Out of the Ashes, Healing in the Afterloss. John is a natural storyteller. This beautifully written memoir is a love letter to the ocean and her inhabitants -- and a call for us all to live a kinder life. Mark Hawthorne, author of A Vegan Ethic: Embracing a Life of Compassion Toward All Fish out of Water is tender meditation on ecology as an exterior as well as interior landscape. It is a moving response to how the natural world shapes us, and requires our attention and care. The book moves fluidly from richly descriptive scenes to reflections on how our experiences teach us to live our best life. June Slyvester Saraceno, author of Feral, North Carolina, 1965 If you've never surfed next to humpback whales, shared a personal moment with a Triggerfish, or had a bandana-wearing deer for a companion, John Merryfield's wonderful collection of deeply personal stories will take you there. His ocean world is a place of compassion and self-awareness, and his storytelling is vulnerable and compelling. There are fascinating reasons why he is a fish out of water, and you'll be delighted to learn them. And the best part is, you just might learn something about yourself in the process.
