The Fast Food Craze: Wreaking Havoc on Our Bodies and Our Animals
This book will be good for use in the classroom or by anyone seriously considering going the vegetarian route. The author has done a lot of research and includes many citations, articles, and pictures that she has found for her case: pro animals and healthy food; anti fast food and animal mistreatment.
She begins by assailing the fast food industry for their unhealthy offerings and misleading advertising. She goes on to describe the mistreatment of factory farm animals in the name of the Almighty Dollar to line the pockets of these same fast food giants around the world. She also points out how the Humane Slaughter Act is either ignored or not enforced. According to Ms. Volpe, not only is fast food unhealthy, it costs pigs, cows and chickens a lot of pain, misery and torture to get to your tummy. She feels the only way to stop this horrendous treatment of animals is to not eat them. She concludes by promoting vegetarianism and its healthy benefits.
