The Modern Food World: Meat, Morality, Technology and Sustainability
In his presentation “The Modern Food World: Meat, Morality, Technology and Sustainability”, Prof. Rozin describes the modern omnivore’s dilemma: having to choose from a virtually endless array of foods. He shows that food choice often has a moral component. Also, he analyzes opposition to new technology, such as genetic engineering. Last, he discusses the fact that large scale consumption of insects could solve many of the world’s food security problems as well as many environmental problems. He also considers the nature of opposition to consuming insects, mainly motivated by disgust.
