LIERRE KEITH The Vegetarian Myth
The vegetarian diet is praised for being sustainable and animal-friendly, but after 20 years of being vegan, Keith has a diffent take. She argues that agriculture is a relentless assault against the planet. In service to annual grains, humans have devastated prairies and forests, driven countless species extinct, altered the climate, and destroyed the topsoil - the basis of life itself. She argues that if humans are to save the planet, food must be an act of profound and abiding repair, generated from inside communities rather than imposed on them.
