Over 79 million people across the world are now vegan, and plant-based meals have become more accessible than ever. Is veganism the natural solution to the looming environmental crisis, and a way to avoid the cruelty of raising animals for slaughter? Or does it remain an elitist movement that demonises the natural human diet and personal choice?
