Foer On Colbert Report

Jonathan Safran Foer discusses factory-farming and eating animals on The Colbert Report.

On Monday, author Jonathan Safran Foer appeared on The Colbert Report to discuss his bestselling non-fiction book Eating Animals with host Stephen Colbert. When prompted by Colbert to "ruin my next meal," Foer juxtaposed a romanticized version of American farming with the harsher realities of factory farming, calling such systems "antithetical to American values." The author detailed the health risks that accompany consuming factory-farmed meat, including swine flu, avian influenza, and a host of other illnesses caused by food-borne pathogens. Foer also dismissed meat and dairy labeled "free range" or "cage free" as deceptive, if not altogether false.
