A survey of 2,000 respondents conducted by Packaged Foods showed that the sales of meat alternatives are growing far greater than animal products.

According to VegNews, the report states that sales of meat products have grown by a rate of three percent between 2014 and 2015, while the composite annual growth rate for meat alternatives between 2010 and 2015 stands at nine percent. It was also revealed that one-third of those involved with the survey consumes meatless meat.

People are becoming more aware of the cruelty of the meat industry and how disastrous it can be for your health, as well as the environment. Red meat, for example, can cause heart disease, inflammation, cancer, and digestive problems; it’s simply not healthy!

With all the different meat alternative options, it’s easier than ever to make the switch. By giving up meat, you would not only help yourself and the planet, but you would also help save the animals.
