In his scathing (and somewhat scintillating) journey through the body of a pig, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg launches an all-out attack on the general grime and filth of these natural scavengers. First published in 1897, this short tome offers a horrifying yet somehow entertaining litany of reasons why hogs should be permanently put out to pasture rather than guzzled down human digestive tracts. Sure to churn--and turn--the stomach of any vegan or vegetarian, this timeless book should also give an extended and solemn pause to the bacon brigade and pork lovers everywhere.
About the Author
John Harvey Kellogg (1852-1943) was a physician, surgeon, showman, health food promoter, inventor, and larger than life character in the wellness movement. A dynamo of human energy and personification of the work ethic, Kellogg, who needed only 4 to 5 hours of sleep a night, went cycling or jogging every morning, dictated 25 to 50 letters a day, adopted and reared 42 children, wrote nearly 50 books, edited a major magazine, performed more than 22,000 operations, gave virtually all of his money to charitable organizations, loved human service, generally accomplished the work of ten active people, and lived in good health to age 91.
