ACT Radio - Liz Marshall


More than 70 billion land animals are killed for food every year and research suggests that global demand for meat may double by 2050. And animal agriculture is responsible for a major share of the damage caused in global land degradation, air and water pollution, and the loss of biodiversity. On ACT Radio, Greg, Liz and Tom talk with filmmaker Liz Marshall about her latest documentary Meat the Future, which chronicles the birth of the cell-based, cultivated meat industry and its revolutionary efforts to sustainably feed the world without the need to breed, raise and slaughter animals.
