Don't Eat Anything With A Face is a debate taking place on December 4th in New York City, hosted by Intelligence Squared, moderated by ABC correspondent, John Donvan.
Dr. Neal Barnard, a clinical researcher and author and Gene Baur, president and co-founder of Farm Sanctuary square off against Chris Masterjohn, a nutritional sciences researcher and blogger of The Daily Lipid and Joel Salatin, a farmer and author.
According to a 2009 poll, around 1% of American adults reported eating no animal products. In 2011 that number rose to 2.5%--more than double, but still dwarfed by the 48% who reported eating meat, fish or poultry at all of their meals. In this country, most of us are blessed with an abundance of food and food choices. So taking into account our health, the environment and ethical concerns, which diet is best? Are vegans on the right track, or are we meant to be carnivores?
Reception: December 4th, 5:45-6:30 PM Debate: 6:45-8:30 PM Address: Kaufman Center 129 West 67th Street (b/w Broadway and Amsterdam) NY, NY 10023
