This mobile phone footage of Bill Gates extolling the benefits of a plant-based diet recently surfaced on the Internet. The YouTube user who uploaded the footage didn't indicate what dinner conference Gates was speaking at, but the message is pertinent regardless.

While discussing agricultural innovation, Gates explained, "So all these companies that are taking these animal products -- the milk, the eggs, the chicken, the beef -- and actually coming up with a way using largely plant-based material to make these things that are both cheaper, probably more healthy, less cruelty involved, less greenhouse gas emissions. It is quite a phenomal thing."
