When Paul Shapiro took his first bite of clean meat in 2014, more humans had gone into space than had eaten real meat grown outside an animal. In addition to being among the world’s first clean meat consumers, Shapiro is a four-time TEDx speaker and long-time leader in food sustainability. Shapiro has published hundreds of articles in publications ranging from daily newspapers to academic journals. He lives in California with his partner Toni Okamoto, founder of Plant-Based on a Budget. Clean Meat is his first book and is a Washington Post bestseller.
