About the Author

MICHAEL W. FOX earned his veterinary degree on a Derbyshire County Exhibition Scholarship studying at the Royal Veterinary College, London, from where he graduated in 1962, with honors in pathology and animal husbandry. He then was awarded a Ph.D. in Medicine from London University in 1967 and a D.Sc. in animal behavior/ethology from London University in 1976. He was on the faculty at Washington University and has been Scientific Director and Vice President for Bioethics and Sustainable Agriculture with the Humane Society of the United States. He is a member of the British Veterinary Association, the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association and an Honor Roll Member of the American Veterinary Medical Association. He has authored and edited over 40 books for adults and children, and writes the nationally syndicated newspaper column, Animal Doctor (with United Features Syndicate, NY). His regular monthly animal column in McCall’s magazine was the longest running column on animals in a U.S. magazine. He appears widely on radio and television, including being a regular guest on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show. Dr. Fox is a widely recognized author, consultant, and lecturer on many topics, including animal awareness, emotions, rights, and well-being; on human-nonhuman relationships and rights philosophy; and, on bioethics, biotechnology, humane, sustainable agriculture, and holistic health. His long-held basic premise—that human health and well being are inseparable from animal health and welfare and environmental protection and conservation—is now gaining international recognition as a bioethical imperative and prerequisite for a viable future.

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more

By Ingrid King on July 30, 2012
Format: Paperback
This book touches on many things that matter a great deal to me: conscious living, animal health, human health, the health of our planet, the health care crisis for both animals and humans, and the many pitfalls of commercial pet food, to name just a few.

Michael Fox is a veterinarian best known for his syndicated "Animal Doctor" column. Born in England, the former vice president of The Humane Society of the United States and the author of more than 40 adult and children's books on animal care, animal behavior and bioethics, is a renowned advocate of animal rights and a sharp and eloquent critic of the biotechnology industry. As a professor, bioethicist and veterinarian, Dr. Fox has spearheaded the movement to foster the ethical treatment of animals and the environment since 1967.

His new book presents a vision of a world where the healing of animals, care for the earth, and a revolution of our food and health care systems all work together to create One Health, driven by an integrative and holistic approach.

Dr. Fox covers topics ranging from animal and environmental protection, food safety, the petfood industry, the politics of food, the influence of big pharma on the medical and veterinary profession, wildlife conservation, and more. If this sounds ambitious, it is. This book is not an easy read. Depending on where you are on your journey toward living a more conscious life, reading this book will turn longheld beliefs upside down. It will change the way you view animals, the food you eat, and the health care you and your animals receive.

I was particularly interested in the chapter titled "Why Most Manufactured Pet Foods Should Not Be Fed to Dogs and Cats.
