It's a beautifully rendered idea. I'll give him, and his design team, that. But some of these characteristics are subjective. I don't think I would pull blueberries down a whole point in "foodness" just because they ended up in a freezer. And I have a hard time believing that commodity crops like corn and soy result in no harm to animals.

Many met their demise because they interfered, or it was claimed they interfered, with agriculture:
