Meat should carry a health warning

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

So said Joyce D’Silva in a recent interview with the Ecologist, the world’s leading environmental affairs magazine.

Joyce, of course, is known to many of you as she has been with Compassion since 1985, including 14 years as Chief Executive. Currently, she is our Director of Public Affairs. At the recent Peter Roberts Memorial Lecture we sprung a surprise on Joyce when we recognised her 25 dedicated years of outstanding campaigns for farmed animals.

With such a track record, I consider Joyce to be among the world’s top experts in animal agriculture. In short, she knows what she’s talking about, as is evident with her must-read interview with the Ecologist. Please take a moment to read this important article, which is reproduced with kind permission of the Ecologist.

Further, I want to make sure you know about an essential new book Joyce co-edited with acclaimed animal behaviourist John Webster, Professor Emeritus at the University of Bristol. It is called The Meat Crisis: Developing More Sustainable Production and Consumption. Discounted copies are available via Compassion’s website.

Eifion Rees from the Ecologist starts the interview by asking Joyce about The Meat Crisis.
