While either attacking each other or patting ourselves on the back on Facebook, this is the real world:
“Retail demand for chicken is off the charts,” Wall Street analyst Jeremy Scott told Investor’s Business Daily today. As a result, the stocks of companies converting chickens into food are soaring — seeing increases exceeding 50% in 2017.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), American per capita consumption of chicken is at an all-time high. As a result, animal agriculture companies like Tyson and Sanderson are planning on opening new processing plants with the ability to kill more than 1.25 million birds per week.
These statistics are a sobering reminder that the world is not going vegan. Most people’s desire to eat animals continues to outweigh their concerns about animal agriculture’s environmental impact and sustainability, cruelty to animals, and health risks. Animal products remain ubiquitous.
This is why One Step refuses to promote fantasies. This is why we are dedicated to fact-based advocacy.
