Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I suspect that as cheap meat gets lower content of quality meat (witness the EU debate on wheter meat glue should have to be declared) and an increased connection with health problems, its status will decline to a point where many might choose a more vegetarian lifestyle to avoid looking as scrap-meat losers.

heh, as a vegan i resemble that!

not everybody is cut out to be, so i imagine most people in the future will be 90% vegetarian, with a few going the whole way.

Moroccans make vegetable tajin with a marrowbone for their couscous, chines slice small chunks of animal protein into their rice and veggie-based meals, same with much of asia.

meat eating will be at the periphery of diets, no longer the meat-and-2-veg, or 'giant slab o' porterhouse' approach, (unless you're a shepherd/cowboy with no refrigeration.)

people will be a lot healthier, (or will join the ancestors) especially with the work on the land to raise all the food now whipped out of the earth with copious petrochemicals, and its higher nutritional value.

you can also put up with a lot more political BS if you're healthier!
