A few years ago I realized that the meat/dairy/egg industries behave like Trump (see image below). That is to say, a mix of temper tantrums tempered with sociopathy and money.
In their latest efforts to silence the plant-based foods industry, these industries attempt to censor its labeling. As someone who had tried to make good choices by relying on labels in the past, I take them to task for years of their own misleading labels, including “free range” “humane” and “natural,” also drawing on my #Comments play about the lawsuit against Hampton Creek LLC and the egg industry’s (unsuccessful) role in thwarting their product, Just Mayo, from hitting the shelves.
Big thanks to the Philadelphia Inquirer for placing my op-ed and Elena for the editing.
