"A solution to the widespread environmental issues of factory farming may be available to consumers in at little as three years. Netherlands-based Mosa Meats announced this week that it has received the funding it needs to bring its lab-grown meat to the public by 2021."

"Mosa Meats is not the only company pursuing lab-grown meat, nor is it the only company with funding from big corporations and mega-donors. Memphis Meats, a California-based lab-grown meat company, has received funding from Bill Gates, Richard Branson, and Cargill, an international agriculture company."

"On the other hand, major players in the meat industry are already lobbying for regulations regarding the emerging technology, which relies on cultured animal cells as opposed to slaughtering live animals. The National Pork Producer’s Council, for example, is working to ensure these cultured “meat” products cannot be labeled meat when they become available to consumers."

Good or bad ATS?

Mmmmm. Meat mats.

Technically there's nothing wrong with it, like eating insects.

But it doesn't sound very appetising.

Sounds like something you'd pick from the body of a 'trash mob' in an RPG style game!?

I don't know what to think!? What's wrong with simple bacon?

It will have to be sold with a drug that stops the gag reflex.... I would never eat it. And you can be sure Micky D's, BK, Wendys, Taco Bell, Arby's, Carl's and a host of others would be purveyors of this Frankenstein goo.

I don't see the problem, flesh is flesh whether or not it was grown specifically as a hunk of flesh, or cut off the dead carcass.

Assuming conditions are hermetically sanitary in the rooms/on the materials this is grown on, I'd eat it. It doesn't have to come with the bovine brain to still be a steak to me, it's technically dead & cooked in the end either way.

Ummm...as long as it comes in a ribeye...bring it on...

This is the smart solution going forward...

This is how we colonize the solar system and outbound...

This is how we radically alter the ecosystem and control our footprints across multiple categories...

Now...if only that robotic garbage scow would start cleaning up the great pacific garbage patches...we'd be getting somewhere...





...to a "Brave New World"...unrelated to any Aldous Huxley vision mind you...

What about squeeze tube steaks?

You have to admit, that would add some culinary diversity to the menu.

Lol.

This snip is priceless.

I am thinking,

Lab grown meat is about as far from organic as one gets.

Cultured meat.

Cultured with WHAT?

Meat don't grow on trees.
