Cowspiracy Documentary & Future Foods
« on: October 22, 2015, 07:16:38 AM »
Forget about recycling, riding a bike to work, taking shorter showers, and other ways that you think are helping to make the Earth a cleaner and more viable place to live.  After hearing about the documentary “Cowspiracy” a few times, I finally checked it out.  At first I thought that it would be another Vegan propaganda film to convince meat eaters to change their diet because animals are cute, fluffy and have feeling and shouldn’t be eaten.  Boy was I mistaken. 

About the Film

Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.
Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.

As Andersen approaches leaders in the environmental movement, he increasingly uncovers what appears to be an intentional refusal to discuss the issue of animal agriculture, while industry whistleblowers and watchdogs warn him of the risks to his freedom and even his life if he dares to persist.
As eye-opening as Blackfish and as inspiring as An Inconvenient Truth, this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet, and offers a path to global sustainability for a growing population.

In the next 3 decades, food demand is expected to grow by 70% and the Earths population will be approaching 10 billion.  There is no way to continue on the same path that we are on now with agriculture and cattle farming so what’s next??

Future Foods

Or perhaps “Frankenfood” is a term that might be thrown around. 

The world's population is growing, while our resources shrink. By 2050, total food demand is expected to increase 70% and food prices could rise by as much as 100%. Meanwhile, the foodie movement is well underway, with chefs and home cooks seeking the freshest and purest local ingredients. Meet the teams of scientists and startups jumping into the food fray, motivated by everything from creating the perfect pepper to saving the world.

Would you eat meat that is grown in a lab where cells are extracted from an actual cow and then grown into a burger or a steak?

The Future Meat Will Be Full of Lab Grown Meat


In 2013, the world’s first lab-grown burger was unveiled to the world. It carried a $330,000 price tag, and apparently, it wasn’t all that tasty. But the scientists behind the idea have been hard at work, and artificial meat that’s both cost-effective and palatable may arrive sooner than we think.
It’s not just cow-free beef burgers on the future menu — several groups around the world are attempting to clone chicken breasts and fish fillets, as well. Why do scientists want to grow meat in vats instead of on animals, and how close are we to actually accomplishing it?

Would you eat food that is fused with insects like crickets and meal worms?  Don’t worry, it’ll look like tasty snacks and cookies and meat…but in the back of your mind you’ll know that you’re eating creepy crawlers

How about a burger and other beef products that are actually made from plants? 

Forget Lab Beef, Impossible Foods’ 100% Plant-Based Cheeseburger Is Our Future

Impossible Foods, the makers of a wholly plant-based cheeseburger, isn’t just making a veggie burger. And that distinction is enough for a party of fairly powerful backers including Bill Gates and Swiss bank UBS, to funnel $108 million into making that burger an accessible reality.
The company says the burger will have no cholesterol, antibiotics, or hormones, but will boast the taste of real meat, due to the fats, proteins, and nutrients separated and drawn from various plants, grains, and legumes combined with amino acids to make it as close to meat as possible. The company plans to have these patties out on the market by 2016.

Is there a list of sources for the information on the video? Or is it just another video for which we have to believe in what they say?

oops, meant to post that with the video in the OP,  Thanks

The science and research done on the true impacts of animal agriculture is always growing. The statistics used in the film were based on the best information we had available while producing the film. We will continually update this list with further resources as they become available

These problems are what started me looking at food. My husband and I forced ourselves to not ignore the things that are hard to look at. we became vegetarian years ago after realizing it was the only thing we could do, but it became and adventure!

We found that fixing great meals and learning new foods and ways to use them was actually fun.I make some really "meat" tasting meatloaf, burgers sausage for our pizza. We now like to know what is in the food we eat and where all of the ingredients comes from. I feel most anyone would feel the same if they did not avoid the truths and really take a look at what is in the food today.

slander becomes the tool of the loser.
