Aren't there enough big whales around with tons of meat? Why don't we eat them?
Beyond the fact that whale populations are already dwindling enough as it is?
For burgers it’s less of an issue. I had a seitan steak once and it was like eating compressed sand.I personally would not go so far as disgusting because I have had a few different types of veggie burgers that are okay-ish, but they just don't taste as good as the real thing and that just kills my interest. Especially when they sometimes cost more than the real thing too.
Sure, but we also thought this about climate change tech as well. The awful truth about us is that the majority will choose convenience over other factors, even price.It is not about laws, it is about costumer demand. And it is not only about lab meat but also vegetable alternatives. Many farmers will either do the switch or focus on higher quality meat for those who refuse to choose alternatives.
I personally will reduce meat intake and will go for the best meat whenever I want some.
Oh wow that sounds fucking awful. I have never tried imitation steak. Just the burgers and the sausages. Will definitely steer clear of it though.
I think real meat slaughter will still exist for a long time and it should
Yeah. Steak has a really important consistency to it that I just don’t think bean-based substitutes can ever replicate.
Yeah, that was my first thought. We'll still have to do this, and I'm wondering if - instead of eating the meat myself - how much of a pretty petty I can get for it when only the rich are eating "real" meat.
For people who don't eat meat for religious reasons, like ~30% of Indians (which is about the population of the United States), this is pretty common.
Your parents made you eat animals, which you probably loved and would have been horrified to see get harmed, before you had the conscious choice. Besides, parents make choices for their kids on everything all the time.
Yes, my parents raised me from birth as a vegetarian.
My parents and I are atheists so not a religious thing for me, though I know it is for some people of course.
