Meat Alternatives: An Integrative Comparison

Emma Watson


Meat eating has long been viewed as a crucial part of a well diet, as socially required and as an indicator of societal advance. These resound with fears over dietary and public health topics, including zoonosis, veterinary use of antibiotics and epidemiological kindred between high feeding of red and managed meat and colon cancer. Animal welfare is a more and growing concern. A major drop in meat eating would lead to substantial environmental and probably also health aids in Western countries, even though a diet comprising limited amounts of meat can be globally useful when animals are kept on borderline lands or fed through surplus streams.
