Livestock's Longer Shadow is one the most important books of its kind since Ruth Harrison's Animal Machines (1964). Most people have little idea how eating animal-based foods harm animals, our health and our planet. We want to believe the animals we eat do not suffer pain, injury, live good lives and eating them is a trade-off for the care we afford them. We accept the illnesses we suffer are simply a consequence of getting old. We want to believe our food choices do not cause rainforest and ocean deforestation. We are told farmers are the guardians of the countryside, yet our landscape is over-cultured and biologically dysfunctional, and our environment polluted by livestock farming. Livestock's Longer Shadow, cuts through the noise for anyone wanting to know how we really treat animals, our health and our planet through the ways we farm and consume animals, through a UK lens. Tim Bailey is an Environmental Scientist and one of the UK's leading and most prominent regulatory farm pollution experts. He brings together all aspects of the UK's animal-based farming and food system, from farm to fork, documents its devastation and provides us with a kinder, more compassionate, sustainable and healthier way forward. In sounding the alarm on the paradigms of animal-based food production, the author uses his own first-hand experience of the impacts of livestock farming from a career regulating the industry spanning over 30-years.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Tim's book could not be timelier and more relevant. Who could be better placed to sound the alarm on the current paradigm of food production than someone who has seen at first-hand the damage it is causing, not only to his personal health but to the environment as a whole? He brings together all aspects of our animal-based farming and food system, from farm to fork, and documents its devastation. He provides us with a kinder, more compassionate, sustainable and healthier way forward. Shireen Kassam MBBS, FRCPATH, PHD, DipIBLM; Founder and Director, Plant-Based Health Professionals;Co-founder, Plant Based Health Online: This makes for vital reading at this pivotal time in our history. Tim leaves no stone unturned in providing clarity around how we can and should move away from the current farming system to one that is much more sustainable and ethical. Ultimately, this book gives us every reason to be hopeful that we can as a collective, shift to a better way of living. Alex Lockwood, Lockwood Films; Film maker and BAFTA Winner 2019 - British Short Films; Director - The End of Medicine: Tim's personal story, his scientific background and his work experience all come together to give rise to one of the most in-depth books about the impacts of our diets on nature, on non-human animals and on human health. It is an absolute must-read for anybody who cares about the future of our planet, the human species and the species we share this planet with. Tatiana von Rheinbaben MSc Env. Eng. Project Manager, Surge (Animal Rights)
