The world has seen the first international conference on manufacturing meat. This is the process, tested so far only at laboratory scale, of growing pork, chicken, or beef through cell culture in vats instead of raising and slaughtering animals.
...one could envision someday a model, say, of a solar-powered facility in southern California or Singapore basically turning sunlight and desalinated seawater into growth medium and then tons of cruelty-free, sustainable nuggets of chicken essence.

Of course they'll include a crapload of unhealthy additives and chemicals. It serves several agendas at the same time. It boosts sales of the chemicals themselves, it creates more illness and disease for the medical community to "maintain", and it ultimately furthers the goal of reducing population.
Obviously, I have no idea about the actual health effects of such a product but if it follows in the footsteps of what has been generally recognized as a precedent within the food industry we can most likely assume the worst.

I understand the good point made to not have to slaughter the animals, it just seems pretty far out there, to grow edible flesh in a "vat"
