Cash Cow by Elise Desaulniers

NOTE: Signed copy.

A popular and respected blogger in Québec, Canada, Élise Desaulniers is a food ethics and animal rights advocate who is also interested in public policy, philosophy, and feminism. In Cash Cow, she takes a hard look at the dairy industry, and how it has persuaded the general public of the naturalness and value of cows milk in the human diet.

Desaulniers asks just who really benefits from the promotion of dairy, and just how effectively animal welfare and small farming operations can be protected in an age of consolidation and confinement.

The ten myths about the dairy industry that Desaulniers debunks make up the chapters of the book:

1. Milk Is Natural
2. A Glass of Milk for Healthy Bones
3. One Glass of Milk Is Good, but Two Is Better
4. We Can Trust the Experts
5. Schoolchildren Need Milk
6. If Cows Were Unhappy, They Wouldn't Produce Milk
7. Animal Abuse Is Illegal
8. Cheese Is Green
9. It's an Industry Just Like Any Other
10. I Could Never Live Without Cheese

“Cash Cow is an exceptionally well written book that truly breaks new ground. It is a comprehensive and well researched expose on the dairy industry that is also concise and easily digestible. In a thoughtful and supportive tone, Elise Desaulniers challenges the reader to critically examine his or her assumptions, and she provides the information necessary to both understand and free oneself from the perils of dairy. This book is a must-read for anyone who is interested in becoming more empowered to make informed, healthful, and ethical food choices."
