I often hear about the controversy around vegetarianism primarily focusing on the moral issues surrounding eating animals. Then I found this fascinating book called "The Vegetarian Myth" that takes a new spin on the issue, as it takes a controversial examination about the destructive history of agriculture. 

I invited the author of the book, Lierre Keith to come on my show and share some of her insights including: 

  • The rarely discussed moral questions of vegetarianism (that goes far beyond eating meat)
  • Why food must come from inside living communities
  • The real risks of a vegan diet


Lierre Keith is a writer, radical feminist, food activist, and environmentalist. Her writing and lectures focus on civilization’s violence against the planet, male violence against women, and the need for serious resistance to both.
