As a young woman traveling solo, I was as much a novelty to the locals as they were to me. Wandering through a colorful produce market one cold winter morning, I was followed by a smiling woman and her teenage son.

Chicken Israeli company SuperMeat “humanely extracts a painless biopsy sample from a chicken” to culture cells into tissue, then turns tissue into lab-grown chicken breast meat—soon to be available worldwide. Egg Whites Bay Area-based Clara Foods creates egg whites (dubbed Clara Whites) using “reprogrammed” yeast to produce egg proteins in the exact same way a hen would.

The development follows a long legal battle in 2016, which resulted in the circus retiring its elephants to a conservation center to be used for cancer research. A study published in scientific journal The Royal Society has found that pigs have the capacity to live life as optimists or pessimists, depending on their living environments, and access to quality bedding and adequate food. In other words, they’re just like us! “Vegans should enjoy the same rights and duties as other citizens and not be forced to pay a tax just because they refuse to put [on] boots that involved the killing of…
