Food, Health and Capitalism: Covid-19 and Beyond


Manufacturer: Anarchist Communist Group (ACG)

Product Information

New and obviously very up-to-date pamphlet on food production, factory farming and food consumption, how it all relates to class, health and capitalism.

"This pamphlet goes to the roots of the current pandemic, locating the causes in
capitalism, including land use, the way we organise food production, and what we
eat. It starts by looking at zoonotic diseases- those that have moved from animals to
humans- and discusses how capitalism created the environments for lethal human-
animal interactions. It moves on to discuss industrial agriculture, its use of
antibiotics, pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, and its impact on health. The
pamphlet then continues with a look at food consumption and the role of capitalism
in facilitating not just zoonotic diseases but also non-communicable diseases such
as diabetes and heart disease. Unhealthy diets are discussed in the context of food
insecurity, domination by global food corporations and class inequality."

Written by the Anarchist Communit Group (ACG), 2020.
