Weapons of Reason Issue 5 – Food
The fifth issue of Weapons of Reason is all about food, and the extraordinary lengths that we'll go to produce it. We investigate the damage that production and consumption are doing to our bodies and our planet, and the means and methods by which we might instigate change for good
In this issue:
— The story of our agrarian evolution (above)
— Mass produced meat is devastating for the environment. But are lab grown alternatives the answer?
— A deep dive into a food industry controlled by a handful of corporations
— The myth that we need plastic to keep food fresh
— And how feeding antibiotics to food animals has created a new breed of superbugs
