Sacred Cow (hard cover book) by Dianna Rogers and Robb Wolf
You may have heard that cattle farming is environmentally destructive or that it's bad for your health. We're often told that the only solution is to reduce or quit red meat entirely. But the science says otherwise. Despite what anti-meat groups, vegan celebrities, and some health experts say, plant-based agriculture is far from a perfect solution. In Sacred Cow, registered dietitian Diana Rodgers and former research biochemist and New York Times bestselling author Robb Wolf explore the quandaries we face in raising and eating animals—focusing on the largest (and most maligned) of farmed animals, the cow.
Inside, Rodgers and Wolf reveal contrarian but science-based findings, such as:
- Meat and animal fat are essential for our bodies
- A sustainable food system cannot exist without animals
- A vegan diet may destroy more life than sustainable cattle farming
- Regenerative cattle farming is one of our best tools at mitigating climate change
