Plants? Animals? Labs? What is the Future of Meat? –
Meat is considered the center of the Standard American Diet with
Americans eating four times more meat than the global average. The UN
predicts that consumption of animal-based food will rise 80% in the next
few decades. This rise in global meat-eating threatens to increase
deforestation in the Amazon and other parts of the world. Yet, many
people around the world are protein-deficient and nutritionists argue
that meat can help fill that need.
