"It is a common misconception that a global increase in veganism and vegetarianism is the cause of increased soy production."
Our second piece in our 'Unpacking Protein' series, written by Maya Kokerov and Anna Lambert, explores the facts and figures behind the popular claims of the soy industry. Why has soy production increased so massively over the last few decades? How does this growth impact the environment of our planet?
Future blog pieces of this series will focus in on other potential future alternatives for protein as a part of our diet. Keep an eye out for the next of this Unpacking Protein series.
