Every time we eat, we have the power to radically transform the world we live in - This statement from earthlinged.org is what defines Ed Winters. His new book is for both sceptics and followers of veganism
Vegan educator and public speaker Ed Winters' debut book 'This Is Vegan Propaganda' answers the pressing question, is there a better way? The book aims to answer the questions spurred by ongoing debate between the advocates of meat industry and sustainable eating activists.
Through exploring the major ways that our current system of animal farming affects the world around us, as well as the cultural and psychological factors that drive our behaviours Ed brings out a book that will show you the other side of the story that has been hidden for far too long.
Introduction to the book mentions - Our choices can help alleviate the most pressing issues we face today: the climate crisis, infectious and chronic diseases, human exploitation and, of course, non-human exploitation. Undeniably, these issues can be uncomfortable to learn about but the benefits of doing so cannot be overstated. It is quite literally a matter of life and death
Ed's book is based on years of research and conversations with slaughterhouse workers and farmers, to animal rights philosophers, environmentalists and everyday consumers. 'This Is Vegan Propaganda' through the book, he gives you the knowledge to understand the true scale and enormity of the issues at stake.
