What you eat matters--for your health, for the environment, and for future generations. In this riveting investigative narrative, renowned health journalist Maryn McKenna dives deep into the world of modern agriculture by way of chicken: from the farm where it's raised directly to your dinner table. Consumed more than any other meat in the United States, chicken is emblematic of today's mass food-processing practices and their profound influence on our lives and health. Tracing its meteoric rise from scarce treat to ubiquitous global commodity, McKenna reveals the astounding role of antibiotics in industrial farming, documenting how and why "wonder drugs" revolutionized the way the world eats--and not necessarily for the better. Rich with scientific, historical, and cultural insights, this spellbinding cautionary tale shines a light on one of America's favorite foods--and shows us the way to safer, healthier eating for ourselves and our children.

10. The buffalo war [2001]

Video
1 streaming video file (57 min.) : digital, sound, color
THE BUFFALO WAR is the moving story of the Native Americans, ranchers, government officials and environmental activists currently battling over the yearly slaughter of America's last wild bison. Yellowstone National Park bison that stray from the park in winter are routinely rounded up and sent to slaughter by agents of Montana's Department of Livestock, who fear the migrating animals will transmit the disease brucellosis to cattle, despite the federal Department of Agriculture's urging that this is unlikely. This film explores the controversial killing by joining a 500-mile spiritual march across Montana by Lakota Sioux Indians who object to the slaughter. Led by Lakota elder Rosalie Little Thunder, the marchers express their cultural connection to bison and display the power of tradition and sacrifice.

""Mon royaume pour un cheval !" implorait Édouard III. Pourrait-on imaginer le Moyen Âge sans cheval ? Omniprésent dans la littérature épique et courtoise médiévale, emblème du monde chevaleresque, il est la monture bien-aimée des guerriers professionnels de la société féodale, un animal noble, précieux, bénéficiant d'un statut hors du commun. Compagnon du laboureur et du marchand, il est aussi un travailleur puissant qui donne son énergie pour aménager les campagnes et animer les voies commerciales dans le contexte de la grande croissance de l'Occident. Aucun autre animal n'occupe une place aussi centrale dans la culture médiévale. Ce livre propose un tour d'horizon complet de cette société équine du long Moyen Âge, interrogeant les pratiques d'élevage, les soins vétérinaires, l'équipement équestre, le monde des écuries, les représentations iconographiques, la valeur symbolique de l'animal, la place singulière qu'il occupe dans les rituels funéraires, le tabou alimentaire dont il bénéficie ... Bref, tout ce qui relie le cheval à l'homme. Il existe un patrimoine équestre, matériel et immatériel, proprement médiéval, dont la richesse est à l'aune de la position éminente que l'animal a occupée à cette époque. Ce livre montre comment historiens et archéologues enrichissent nos connaissances et contribuent à mieux comprendre et protéger le patrimoine équestre."--Page 4 of cover.

Egg Innovations and Strategies for Improvements examines the production of eggs from their development to human consumption. Chapters also address consumer acceptance, quality control, regulatory aspects, cost and risk analyses, and research trends. Eggs are a rich source of macro- and micronutrients which are consumed not only by themselves, but also within the matrix of food products, such as pastas, cakes, and pastries. A wholesome, versatile food with a balanced array of essential nutrients, eggs are a stable of the human diet. Emerging strategies entail improvements to the composition of eggs via fortification or biological enrichment of hen's feed with polyunsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins, or minerals. Conversely, eggs can be a source of food-borne disease or pollutants that can have effects on not only human health, but also egg production and commercial viability. Written by an international team of experts, the book presents a unique overview of the biology and science of egg production, nutrient profiling, disease, and modes for increasing their production and quality. Designed for poultry and food scientists, technologists, microbiologists, and workers in public health and the food and egg industries, the book is valuable as an industrial reference and as a resource in academic libraries.

'A beautiful and thoughtful exploration of the role of the horse in creating our world' James Rebanks'Scintillating, exhilarating ... you have never read a book like it ... a new way of considering history' ObserverThe relationship between horses and humans is an ancient, profound and complex one. For millennia horses provided the strength and speed that humans lacked. How we travelled, farmed and fought was dictated by the needs of this extraordinary animal. And then, suddenly, in the 20th century the links were broken and the millions of horses that shared our existence almost vanished, eking out a marginal existence on race-tracks and pony clubs.Farewell to the Horse is an engaging, brilliantly written and moving discussion of what horses once meant to us. Cities, farmland, entire industries were once shaped as much by the needs of horses as humans. The intervention of horses was fundamental in countless historical events. They were sculpted, painted, cherished, admired; they were thrashed, abused and exposed to terrible danger. From the Roman Empire to the Napoleonic Empire every world-conqueror needed to be shown on a horse. Tolstoy once reckoned that he had cumulatively spent some nine years of his life on horseback.Ulrich Raulff's book, a bestseller in Germany, is a superb monument to the endlessly various creature who has so often shared and shaped our fate.
