The up-to-the minute latest news about meat-eating that our government and the meat lobby does not want us to know:

--How likely is it that mad cow disease could happen here?
--What are the latest additives being added to our livestock feed?
--Why are our children being bombarded with hours of meat advertisements a day?
--How can your family gradually cut down your meat consumption?
--What do some researchers think that some Alzheimer's patients really have something else?

You Don't Need Meat was first published in the United Kingdom, where it quickly became a runaway Number 1 bestseller. Written with a charming mixture of science, humor, and ethics, this completely revised and updated edition will give you all the facts you need about the meat you eat---both from a humane perspective and as a basis for getting and maintaining a healthy body.
