Fake Meat: Yay or Nay?

I enjoyed Norman Weiss’ “Suggestions” article in the October Shuttle about fake meat and the plethora of ingredients pushing out the pleasure of whole foods. 

One point in favor of fake meat could be that real meat, like cows, pollutes. If people ate meat once a week instead of many times a day, might we improve our environment? Fewer cows, less methane.

One thing I don’t know, however, is how much pollution is created in the manufacturing of fake meat.
