Food Pets Die for: Shocking Facts About Pet Food by Ann N. Martin was the first expos of the shocking practices within the pet food manufacturing industry. Since the book's publication in 1997, she has been calling attention to the dubious ingredients and methods employed by many firms. And in this updated guide, Martin continues to put pressure on the big companies to find alternatives. She suggests that if acceptable commercially prepared food is not available, food can be made at home using safe and human-quality ingredients, and she provides recipes and suggestions for supplements.

This book could cause you to think about changing their lives.
This book's theme is reminiscent of the 1973 science-fiction movie, "Soylent Green", which depicts an overpopulated future world where, by necessity, anthropophagy (the human form of cannibalism) has become incorporated into the system. Humanity has decimated most of the earth's food-producing resources, so, when people die, the state secretly renders the corpses into colorful crackers (kibble) which are distributed as low-cost food for the teeming masses. An invisible government rules, and the people are completely unaware of what is really happening and what their food is made of.
