Oh yeah, all you anti meat people out there, we have canines and incisors for a reason and that reason isn't to eat Tofu. Meat is the ONLY reason we are not still swinging from trees and running away from Sabertoothed Cats and Dire Wolves. To not eat meat is to deny your evolutionary heritage.

It's a classic? I only watched some of it when it was on tv because I was bored . It only got interesting when the last few minutes when the big secret was revealed. That's the bit that made me remember it.

As long as its safe and is exactly like the real deal then i think i could roll with it. It just is very odd to think about eating lab grown tissue

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..


Pretty sure plants don't have nervous tissue. But maybe it's just me, right?


Anyways, if the meat's healthy, I'd be all for it. Except that it wouldn't be healthy once they put flavor in it.

Also, why don't we just eat plants? We can grow those without doctorates in genetics.

There are so many things that are wrong with this post that I am going to ignore because I don't want to ruin my evening. With that, I will say that my classmates and I discussed this in detail in a "future trends in horticulture" class last year. I don't remember the details, but I remember one important fact. That meat generated in a lab requires proteins from the fetuses of calves. Or something to that effect. It's been a while, so look up the details in PEER REVIEWED RESEARCH ARTICLES AND REPUTABLE SCIENTIFIC PUBLICATIONS. I have to stress that, because the mainstream press is a terrible source to rely on when it comes to this stuff. We came to the conclusion that an alternate protein (or enzyme) source would have to be implemented for this process to be sustainable and practical.



If you could, provide a source to the publication that this figure belongs to. I agree with the land use and greenhouse gas emissions representations, but am questioning the energy use bit. When I looked into this, the process was hardly efficient, even when compared to grazing cattle.

As long as it tastes like meat and is not harmful to my body, I would eat it.
I don't eat too much meat anyway.
