Interesting article. One correction – When I visited China in 2012, there was a great abundance of plant-based “meat” products in vegetarian restaurants, so they’ve been in Asia for a long time.

A problem with these products, apart from the concepts inside the heads of those who consume them, is that they seem to be extremely unhealthy – they are totally artificial, so how can they be good for you? And I’m guessing that they are full of salt. Plus, all the nutritional benefits of eating plants are missing. If one stops eating meat, one very soon begins to really like vegetables, so one is happier and healthier.
