CoronaVirus outbreak sparks global interest in Vegan and immune boosting foods
Public health threats may mean a shift away from animal products is on the horizon.
Food businesses around the world are taking a greater interest in plant-based sources of protein as the outbreak of coronavirus continues to spread worldwide. The virus – which has already killed more than 3000 people, mostly in China is thought to have originated in Huanan seafood wholesale market and transmitted to humans by either civet, pigs or pangolins. As a response to COVID-19, China permanently banned the consumption of wild animals in February, which, if enforced, would shut down a $74 billion industry. The ban does not apply to aquatic life, poultry and ‘’livestock’- even though pigs have not been ruled out as the species responsible for transmitting COVID-19 to humans.
There is no doubt that consuming animal products is high risk for our health.
In the USA alone Salmonella bacteria cause about 1.35 million infections, 26,500 hospitalizations, and 420 deaths every year.
