Yes, it is not a documentary, nor is it an argument. Positions were indeed shown as extremes because it's stacking years of experience into twelve minutes. Nearly every story is a manipulation of the consumer's empathy.
Referring to dietary restrictions is a strawman argument, of course. The issue, the moral outrage and disgust, is not for what people put in their mouths but for the suffering of others which brought it there. There is also concern for our shared environment, whether climate change or our ongoing mass extinction of wildlife. The biggest push for lab grown meat or plant-based meat alternatives is from vegans and enviromentalists, allowing everyone to broaden their diets without dietary restriction or such negative impact on others.
