Are American meat processors moving away from meat and toward plant-based alternatives like soy and corn?
This week on the popular Joe Rogan Podcast, his guest Adam Curry expressed his concern that American processors are shifting away from meat and toward plant-based products. While he didn’t go into great detail it seems that his concerns included:
- The processing industry is following the path of profits which is not in the best interest of our health
- China is stockpiling grain and seeking to use it to control the global market
- Since it’s getting harder to find quality foods from large corporations, people are turning toward decentralized and local sources
It is good for us to open these conversations and investigate trends in our food systems. Mass food production has lead us to more and more unhealthy diets and this can be seen in our country’s rising obesity rates.
