    What can I as an individual do to affect policy change so that our government stops supporting animal industries. I think that if Americans had to pay the real price of animal products they would consume a lot less!

    • Joan Davis says:

      I loved David Simon’s seminar in Melbourne, Florida recently. Very enlightening and instructive. As a vegan, I would also like to be more involved in effecting anti-animal rights ag gag laws and industrial agriculture’s stranglehold on government subsidies and lies in advertising. Any suggestions?

    I loved this book!
    Where can I find more information on the meat and dairy industry? I am currently writing a paper and I want to discuss the economic and health impacts that this industry’s activities has on society. Also, do you have data for countries outside the US (particularly Canada)?

  9. Jessica Rantamaki says:

    I am in the middle of “Meatonomics” and pretty much disgusted with what the government has allowed. I am 50 and in college majoring In polisci to hopefully get a law degree before I turn 60. In my twilight years I hope to be an advocate for healthy living and the environment especially in disadvantaged communities that are often food deserts. I commend you for this book.
