Real Dirt exposes the truth about farming strategies used in Canada and around the world by explaining the “whys” and “hows” of GMOs, resistance-building doses of antibiotics, pesticides, and confinement animal housing. Stoddart outlines the environmental costs and benefits of all forms of agriculture, including a pointed critique of the organic production of many annual crops. He tackles food industry problems, delving into the science and economic issues surrounding sustainable farming. Ultimately, he educates and then challenges consumers to choose a sustainable future for food production.
