Another good video from Nuseir today, about the double-standard many people have regarding meat consumption.

Chicken feathers converted into meat. Since no animals are killed to produce this meat from feathers, I wonder if ethical vegetarians might approve of it or even eat it. Vegetarians for nutritional reasons would still not want it, but for those who are vegetarian strictly on ethical reasons, this could be an option.

I wouldn't eat it, because I no longer have taste or desire for meat, but since it's a by-product of the meat industry, something that would have been thrown away anyway, no animal was killed.

Finding new alternative sources of protein are the way to go. In Israel, grasshopper farms are marketing their products as alternatives to the more traditional sources of meat. It might not be vegetarian, but it seems more environmentally friendly in terms of methane gas emissions.

I doubt these products will replace meet in the menu, but it could become a main ingredient for protein supplements used by body-builders and athletes in general.
