Chen will also explain the human health and environmental cost of factory farming. He’ll focus on Israel, which ranks among the most progressive countries in terms of animal rights protections and contains more vegan restaurants, per capita. For example, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has vegan options for food and clothing; there are veg-fests and marches that attract 15,000 people of all denominations.
