Now you don't need to kill to get your food.

Did you know plants feel pain, they can even sense wen they are in danger, just like animals, but at least animals could have a chance by running away..

But that's not what this topic.. the topic is about... would you eat meat that was grown is a lab? Think about it all kinds of meats, from lion to human ripe for the eating without needing to kill anything or anyone.
Yes I was joking wen I said human but it could happen.

That's right we can grow meat in labs, instead of keeping millions of cows that both are slaughtered but also create pollution and destroy are OZONE and take up a lot of space that was once forest and wild life. Instead we can grow meat in a lab and stop being savage.

I don't care how it was made or where it comes from as long as it's healthy, edible and doesn't taste like crap.

well its is meat, the only different you don't have to worry about the animal being sick and getting contaminated meat. (so I assume its a bit healthier yet taste the same as the living animal meat products.

Yeah I read the article after posting, it's pretty exciting stuff. I was just replying to your general question as to would I eat meat even if it didn't come from an animal. As long as it has the nutrients my body needs, won't make me sick, and I enjoy the taste I'd eat it no matter how it was made. A lot of people are really on that whole natural kick at the moment though so I'm not sure how well it would actually pan out.

I would eat lab grown meat. But I doubt it is as commercially cheap as farm meat...

I assume one needs to be qualified to be a lab meat making scientist; u don't need to be qualified to be a farmer; even tho farmers make more money. Thus making the lab meat exponentially more expensive than the farm meat.

I would rather have a real live tortured soul, be free range or caged and roided. Half the taste comes from its life style and what it eats, not just sterile unadulterated muscle tissue.

Can you make sure to give that lab meat exercise so it doesn't taste like caged meat?

Big difference in taste between free range and caged, between farmed and wild-caught.

I imagine a lot of research will go into making it suitable for mass production, where computer controlled machines will handle as much of the process as possible. After awhile the cost will go down.

I wonder how the Native Americans dealt with rampaging out of control herds of buffalo that at their peak even outnumbered the amount of cattle in the US.


Among some prairie enthusiasts, there seems to be a perception that plains bison are magical creatures that live in complete harmony with the prairie. They eat grasses but not wildflowers, they float just above the ground to avoid stepping on plants or compacting the soil, and they create tidy little wallows that fill with rainwater for tadpoles and wading birds. Cattle, on the other hand, are evil creatures that seek and destroy wildflowers, removing them from prairies forever. They also stomp all over prairies, trampling plants and birds to death and causing cascades of soil erosion and water pollution.

Its not meat, it doesn't come in anyway from an animal.

Nothings as good as the real deal

I'm cool with GMO so I'd be ok with lab grown meat, as long as it tastes the same but I have a feeling were a while off before thats the case. Until then, I'll stick with the butcher.

The outcome here is the cost versus time. It costs a farm a lot less to generate pounds and pounds of safe to consume beef from cows on a farm.

The lab generated their beef over a much longer time span to create just enough beef for a single hamburger. The technology to say "We can do this" isn't there. It is at minimal years in production. Which will make the burgers when they are available very expensive. Ask yourself if you want to spend 20$ buying a fake burger or 1$ at a fast food joint. Because one comes with a bun, pickles, cheese mustard and ketchup and mayo. Where as the other only comes with a fake burger.

I'll take real beef. Thanks.
