In 2013 the average price of a McDonald’s cheeseburger was $1 (today it’s more like $1.20), but to make that cheeseburger requires a global industrial food system that is ridiculously tuned to the interests of VALUE and SPEED, not health. #Cheeseburgers for one dollar are legitimately insane to think about when you break down the ingredients from all over the planet, so let’s do that! 🍔

What about to eat a vegetarian diet? Will we have cows on Mars? What’s the 2020 version of replicators from Star Trek? I have so many questions, so let’s kick into it. This week I explore the evolution, economics, classism of eating meat, and where the human diet might go in #thefuture.
PART 1 : how much more does it cost to eat meat?
PART 2 : what’s the food of the future today?
PART 3 : is alternative meat?
PART 4 : how many people can Earth feed?
PART 5 : cows on Mars?

America’s obsession with meat, explained
Americans celebrate their independence with sizzling sausage and give thanks with turkey. Three decades after Wendy’s debuted its signature ad campaign, "Where’s the beef?" is still a meme. And we’ve never elected a vegetarian to the White House. It’s no surprise, then, that the average American ate roughly 220 pounds of meat in 2018—a new record.

The Making of Meat Eating America
We eat a lot of meat in this country; per person, more than almost anywhere else on Earth.

Pill Food: A Staple of SciFi
It is a constant theme of early science fiction, and one you are almost certainly familiar with: the man or woman of the future pops a pill on to their tongue, knocks it back and is almost immediately satisfied. For inside the little white capsule was a full three course meal, designed to mimic the meals of the past in a single convenient, portable dose.

The Gherkin King! Dill or no dill (lol)
When we last caught up with Griffith gherkin grower Tony Parle, he was making a quick buck out of fast food. Almost two decades on, he’s still McDonald’s sole supplier of the much loved, and loathed, pickle. But as Kerry Staight reports, making gold out of green has been an endurance test of extreme highs and lows.

As much as 90 percent of Americans could eat food grown within 100 miles of their home
There are so many mantras of the modern day food movement that keeping track of any one single goal can be a tall task. But no matter whom you ask, there seems to be at least one concern that arises time and time again. The ascent of big food companies, which have allowed Americans to eat more foods, more cheaply, and at more times of the year than ever before, has led to a massive decline in the amount of food we source from nearby farms.

Love you, #nerdfam! Stay #curious, thank you for supporting my scicomm. Here’s a challenge, try to not eat any red meat for three days. Just 72 hours without mammal meat. Try it! Let me know how it goes ✨
