Plant-Based Lifestyles Become Popular

Plant-based diets, such as vegetarianism & veganism, are transitioning from marginal to becoming mainstream. People choose plant-based diets for many reasons. Veganism can provide a safe harbor for the growing number of people concerned about where their supermarket meat comes from. Some critics who talk about industrial-sized food processing have been gaining a wider audience following in the past few years. There has also been a dynamic shift in people trying out the plant-based lifestyle choice, including celebrities!
