    this industry The book supports animal welfare not by championing animal rights but by arguing that the superiority of humans demands that we treat animals mercifully In the book s introduction Scully states We are called to treat them animals with kindness not because they have rights or power or some claim to equality but in a sense because they don tbecause they all stand unequal and powerless before us Speciesism by Joan Dunayer Reviews Descriptions Defining speciesism as a failure in attitude or practice to accord any nonhuman being equal consideration and respect quotJoan Dunayer compellingly critiques speciesism both outside and inside the animal rights movement With bold originality she examines philosophy law and activism in terms of three categories old speciesists rdquolimit rights to humans new speciesists rdquoadvocate rights for relatively few nonhumans those who seem most human likenonspeciesists advocate basic rights such as rights to life and liberty for all sentient beings Uniquely egalitarian Speciesism outlines nonspeciesist thought law and action Animal equality Language and liberation by Joan Dunayer Reviews Descriptions The first book on language and non human oppression ANIMAL EQUALITY shows that deceptive biased words sustain injustice toward non human animals Speciesism the failure to accord other animals equal consideration and respect survives through misunderstanding and ignorance Compelling evidence of non human thought and emotion debunks language that characterises other animals as unreasoning or insensitive This book shows that speciesism pervades our language Book Explores Speciesism and Language Food For thought by Adam Moledina Reviews Descriptions Food For Thought written by local author Adam Moledina has already sold thousands of copies in Singapore and abroad The book shows with graphic words and photos the inch by inch torture our animals undergo and how to bring cheap food to people s tables we continue to perfect a food production system that brings extreme suffering and degradation to the animals caught in its grip Upon encountering this clearly written book each sincere reader faces the stunning questions What right do I have to inflict so much suffering on other creatures Does my subsistence really call for all that quotThe final decision of course is the readers to take Price 5 00 email to place order Diet for a New America by John Robbins Reviews Descriptions Vegetarian Times magazine From the outset of reading this volume I was enthralled The book is a pleasure to read as engrossing as the most exciting novel Yet this is no novel It deals directly with the most important personal issues and decisions of our lives When I finished reading Diet for a New America I knew that in my hands lay one of the most profound studies ever written of how our eating habits affect our lives and indeed all of life on our planet If you read only one book this year let it be this one The Food Revolution by John Robbins Reviews Descriptions John Robbins has done it again Another brilliant mind altering paradigm shifting lifestyle changing heart

  • World Hunger | Vegetarian Society (Singapore)
    The ratio of food to meat for other types of meat is less but still represents major inefficiency The world s cattle alone consume a quantity of food more than enough to feed the Earth s entire human population For example more than 50 of the corn and oats grown in the US is fed to livestock not to people Much plant food grown in third world countries is sold to developed countries to produce cheaper meats On the other hand millions in the developed countries suffer from diseases related to over consumption often linked to meat eating such as heart disease stroke hypertension and diabetes Although world hunger is a complex multi faceted issue the high demand for meat is a contributing factor Meat consumption in much of the world is still on the rise Modern animal farming is rapidly polluting and depleting our natural resources upon which all life depends Greater demand for meat leads to more deforestation more water pollution more soil degradation and ultimately more hunger We can feed the world improve our health and help preserve our fragile planet if we all move towards a plant based diet By eating less or no meat at each meal we all can make a difference in the world Top To bring more attention to this tragedy VSS has made a sculpture to bring a sense of reality to the suffering which would otherwise be unseen by Singapore eyes VSS Sculpture This sculpture and the accompanying poster are being displayed at selected VSS events If you have ideas for places such as restaurants and schools that would like to have a turn to display the sculpture and poster please email us Print References College of Agricultural Consumer and Environmental Sciences 1997 Food Supply and the World s Population
