About this book

Explores how animals keep themselves healthy in the wild and how, by contrast, animals kept under intensive conditions are susceptible to a range of illnesses which impact, via the food chain, on human health. In addition, farm animals are often subjected to behavioural and physical constraints which undermine their wellbeing. Engel concludes that 'drug-based rule-breaking' is unsustainable.
