A video has recently exploded on the internet of Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates speaking about the potential worldly benefits of veganism. In it, Gates discusses a future in which science will allow the production of vegetarian “meat”. Gates notes that the product will likely be cheaper, more efficiently produced and better for the planet.
Examining our issue-ridden food system from a business-oriented perspective, it’s interesting that Gates comes to the same conclusion that many ethically-minded vegans and vegetarians come to: eating meat is harming everyone and everything, and a meat-free diet will help the world tremendously.
It’s a short clip but worth watching.
