Oh God, so it's not just me. 'BAME' people make up about 7% of the UK's population and yet represent about 40-50% of the characters in adverts. I am getting absolutely sick to my back teeth of this overt racist political correctness being shoved in my face with every single tv advert.
70% of soybeans grown worldwide is fed to animals, while in the US 36% of corn (maize) is used for feedstock. Given the number of pounds of feedstock needed to produce a pound of meat, the vegetarians argue that you can feed far more people per acre if you feed them the grain rather than feeding them the meat. In other words, you are not converting grazing land to farming, but rather more efficiently using the available arable land.
I'm not a vegetarian but there is logic to the argument.
Longterm, artificial meat will be the answer. There is a lot of money being poured into the technology, and eventually they'll produce something palatable.
