For many years there has been an exponential growth in interest in a kitchen that does not include the use of products of animal origin. This “cultural revolution” originates from the evolution that society has undergone recently. Then a healthy culture has spread, a search for NO-GMO products, an environmental and animalistic culture that was absolutely absent in previous eras. In particular television information and the greater diffusion of culture among ever wider layers of the population has changed the relationship with animals and with the food that arrives daily on our tables.
LOTS OF ANIMAL PRODUCT ARE NOT HEALTHY http://www.nogmo.com
Everyone knows that a diet rich in products of animal origin prolonged over time is harmful to health because it causes weight gain, cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure. The consequence would be a worsening of the state of health and a shortening of life expectancy.
As regards the environment, it is known that breeding is a dangerous source of nitrogen pollution on the land (the high-protein feeding of the farms causes the production of feces rich in nitrogen and therefore very polluting. However the destruction of forests is also to be considered and forests to make way for maize and soy crops intended for animal husbandry. So in recent years, the refusal or reduction of the consumption of products of animal origin due to the awareness of the suffering caused to animals by the animal husbandry industry has become increasingly greater. So it produced a great interest in vegan and healthy alternatives to food of animal origin and a search for NO-GMO products.
