The Food Revolution

The Food Revolution

Amongst the many dramatic technology- driven changes such as self driving electric cars and artificial intelligence going on in the world we live in, the Food Revolution is happening almost unnoticed. While the majority of people living in the US and many parts of the world continue to stick to their traditional Western diet consisting largely of animal products (meat, fat, milk), sugar and starches, a growing number of people are moving away from the traditional eating habits and increasingly consume plant based “substitutes”, like almond and soy milk, and, as described in this article, lab grown meat products. In the long-term, probably a good idea with benefits for the health of the planet, the wellbeing of farm animals, and most important for our own health. How long will it take for this food revolution to affect everybody?
