Vegans are no strangers to getting a raw deal. Menu options at restaurants are limited, to say the least, and many vegans find themselves on the defensive, trying to explain their moral values and principles to close-minded meat eaters.

McDonald’s loves to brag about having served over one billion individuals. But did you know that a single food item sold over 100 billion servings worldwide – yes, that’s around 14 servings per person on Earth – in one calendar year? That would be instant ramen. We take a closer look at this "virtually unstoppable phenomenon."
