Ob Birgit Klaus’ Cholesterinspiegel sinken und sie stattdessen unter Eisenmangel leiden wird, ob Menschen wie sie den Planten retten oder ob „Bio“ der Schlüssel zum legitimen Fleischverzehr ist, das Buch fordert die Auseinandersetzung mit einem Thema, dessen Relevanz für die Menschlichkeit einer Gesellschaft nicht verkannt werden darf - tierzuliebe und uns zuliebe.
