  • Our current method of producing meat has many issues, two of the main ones being ethical and environmental concerns.
  • The majority of livestock live in factory farms, and meat comes with the question of whether it’s right how we treat them.
  • Livestock use significant amounts of resources and land, and contributes to human emissions.
  • By adopting in-vitro meat, we can lessen the harmful impacts of conventional meat, but it requires the population to try it.
