On December 23, 2003, Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman shocked the world with her announcement that mad cow disease was in America. Authors Sheldon Rampton and John Stauber were not surprised. Their 1997 book, Mad Cow USA revealed that the livestock industry and the government had failed to take the necessary steps to prevent this deadly dementia from emerging in animals and humans in the US. In this newly updated edition covering the arrival of Mad Cow Disease in the U.S., Rampton and Stauber cover the terrifying new ground since the first edition.
In the tradition of Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle" and Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring," an alarming exposé about the beef industry that could change the way you eat forever...
Howard Lyman, who told the story of his transition from cattle rancher to vegetarian in Mad Cowboy, exposes the flimsy lies sustaining the meat industry in this new volume. With an update on the Mad Cow threat, an eye-opening discussion of the link between Alzheimer's and meat consumption, and a raucus dissection of the folly of high-protein diets, No More Bull! makes the case for a plant-based diet as clearly and powerfully as it's ever been made.
