I disagree on this point. Female chickens make eggs, and female cows make milk. If you are a male you are killed. Then there are the questionable industrial practices associated with these industries like chickens spending their whole existence stressed out in a cage so small they can’t turn around (although this can be sorted by sourcing your produce from organic farmers, at a price).

The food situation will change. In the UK Right now it’s cheaper for me to by Dutch pork, New Zealand lamb, and Spanish tomatoes. However, these industries profitability is tied closely to the cost of fossil fuels. As fuel prices rise it will allow local producers to compete. I welcome the day!
