Will We Ever Give Up Meat?

Basic Books

Maybe someday we'll be able to eat meat created in a laboratory, without any animals being harmed.  But... WOULD we eat that? 

Our love affair with eating animals dates back a long way, long before the likes of our current species walked the Earth. 

In the book Meathooked, Marta Zaraska looks into the many ways in which we have fed our addiction with eating meat... and display some reluctance to give up the addiction.  Zaraska, science journalist and travel writer (now THERE's a combination), joins us with the highlights.
