In today's media, it is difficult to determine what is real news and what is fake news. It is easy to manipulate information and the amount of news, both true and false, is overwhelming. This leads to a lot of doubt, and creates room for the imagination to run wild. This is especially true when things are withheld or invisible, as is the case in our meat industry. After all, most people do not know where their meat comes from and it is also difficult to determine with the scale of production. In the book, "The Six-winged Chicken and Other Fabled Animals of the Food Industry", Anne Kamps is on the cutting edge of fact and fiction. She captures the spirit of the times, with all its fake news, crazy technologies and a food industry that has never been so far removed from mankind.
