The hidden costs of a vegan diet – BBC REEL

Veganism has truly taken off – as a lifestyle and as a diet – especially in Europe and the United States.

There has been plenty of discussion around the potential health and environmental benefits of a vegan diet, and the trend shows little sign of slowing down. Some studies predict that by the year 2040, as much as 60 percent of meat eaten globally will be created in labs or made from plant-based products.

But are we ready to make such a radical transition? And what are the hidden costs – socially, economically and environmentally?
