Scientists often disagree. The number and eminence of those on either side does not ultimately decide the final acceptance or otherwise of a proposition.

There are inumerable cases of scientists getting things wrong. Newton and Einstein were were both corrected later, despite their genius.

Scientists are humans with all the failings of our species popping up, especially at higher levels, pride, greed, avarice, lust and sociopathy. These failings muddy the waters.

The other sides to this discussion include:

1. The impact of meat production on the environment
2. The way humans feel about the cruelty of meat production and processing

Non experts and maybe even scientists in this specific field tend to follow their prejudices.
