At the moment, 7.35 billion people live on our earth. If the average protein requirement of an adult per day is approximately 50g, this value is exceeded in almost every continent in daily consumption. The US, for example, has a daily per capita consumption of proteins of 90g, with a clearly dominant proportion of animal proteins. As predicted by the United Nations, the world population will develop by 2100 to 11.21 billion people. If nothing changes in today's tendencies of the world's dietary habits, an even greater need arises, especially for meat and dairy products as protein sources.
But that also means that a traditional livestock farming causes a destructive ecological impact on the environment.
With a significant water and land abuse an enormous amounts of organic waste and the high amount of food scandals show also that animal protein could be harmful to us with an excessive presence of hormones, antibiotics and pesticides.
