Actually, a global reaction has already seen the irreversibly surging world vegan trend. Global statistics show animal livestock production- this oldest, largest, and most inefficient of food producing systems, is facing its final disruption. Meat, milk, leather and collagen products are being replaced by superior plant-based food and fiber technologies with continuous engineering improvement. The cutting edge of modern food production is plant-based, healthy, free of micro-contaminants, nutritious, eco-friendly and has 10-20 folds more feed efficiency than the animal livestock raising system. The growing vegan trend is already driving massive economics shifts within this revenue stream. Big companies, like Cargill and Tyson Foods already see the writing on the wall and have made huge investments in plant-based food production. Impossible Foods is another company with a rapidly growing share of the traditionally animal based food market, and when Beyond Meat became the first publicly listed plant-based food company, its stock value soared by an unprecedented 550% in the first month of trading. We couldn’t agree more. There are also other benefits to our world if the full-scale of disruption of animal livestock raising does take place. Other than the positive environmental impact mentioned earlier, such as halting climate change, saving water, reducing waste, stopping deforestation and biodiversity loss, the rates of foodborne and human-animal crossover zoonotic illnesses will decrease significantly, as will antibiotic resistance in disease-causing bacteria. Health costs that come from eating meat, such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, can also be saved, which is a whopping 75% of the current expense about $3.5 trillion a year. And the best of all is that the suffering of animals will be over.
