Test Tube Burger...


The first ‘test-tube’ hamburger is only a year away, scientists claim.

They believe the product, beef mince grown from stem cells, could pave the way for eating meat without animals being slaughtered.

The Dutch scientists predict that over the next few decades the world’s population will increase so quickly that there will not be enough livestock to feed everyone.

Imagine a juicy and tasty burger made from the stem cells of a cow.

In the future, "in vitro" meat, grown in a laboratory, may be your only choice says these scientists.

And "we need a courageous person who is willing to be the first to taste it."



Not only will you get fresh, laboratory grown meat, that will use less land, less energy, and produce less greenhouse gases. Imagine all the goodies they could fortify this with.

Mmmm. Mmm. What's for supper grandpa?

I refuse to eat lab grown meat. My food must be alive at some point with a minimum of two to four legs. Fish is practically a vegetable. Only real meat is chicken, goats, sheep, cows, zebras, giraffes, impalas, gazelles, dogs and cats. I will eat any and all of those if they crossed my path. I will never eat lab grown meat, that is not how God intended it.

WTF is with you people. They finally get something that can help us and most people are like "ehhhh noooo". I loose more and more faith in this forum every day. I can understand about anything else but the ability to create meat without harming any animals that is going to be used to feed a rapidly expanding population I really don't see the problem.

If we ever travel into deep space you think they'll be brining cows and farms on spaceships or do you think it'll be more like this? The futures here get over it.

Technically, it is fresh cow, albeit a petri dish version.
Yum.

The next step will be the replicators, like on star trek. I for one would try it, why not.

I agree with you here. It is essentially the same exact stuff that is found in any other burger you are all so willing to scarf down. Better for you than McDonalds..

Just because it is made in a laboritory, it is that much of a turn-off for you all? If you knew exactly what was in a lot of stuff that you eat, you would discover much more unappetizing ingrediants than lab-grown beef.

I think it's a great idea. Welcome to the matrix!

No more whining from vegetarians - you can cram a steak down their throats & they won't be able to to complain that it is wrong to kill animals!

EXCELLENT!

Of course there will still be some animals for those of us who require meat to have bneen self mobile at asome point - there is still lots of land that is unsuitable for growing crops and so grazing is the only option - so don't fear - that'll be the case for a century or 2 yet I reckon.

but it might start to cost more to eat those products.....

You need to see what they put in your food... and then ask yourself again -- do you want food created by these people that already put these horrible things into our food?

I think this is the outrage. If people could trust it, I doubt there would be a problem.

if the problem is more people why dont we, then make more people farmers an ranchers. instead of the opposite. more people--produce more food?

Just one more thing that confirms I made the right choice to become a vegetarian.


Enjoy your steak - BTW what cut of meat is that?

How unique. Not overdone. Don't think it's been said before actually. Oh and linking to Maddox is always a win.

I must be out of the loop here since I'm 100% in favor of this lab-grown meat.... Because humans continue their reckless breeding...this type of lab-grown meat will be neccessary to meet the demands without further destroying our environment. Think of this...the majority of irrigation pastures are used to feed cows...not humans. Human stupidity never ceases to amaze me, but at least our scientists are trying to find solutions around it.

We dont need lab grown meat to feed the world. We need people to stop breeding like cockroaches.

Thats what we really need.

Science keeps looking for new ways to feed more and more and more people, and I cant even count the number of articles I have read lately in economic and science magazines about "how are we going to feed ___ billion people?" in x number of years and no one wants to state the obvious.

There are too many of us now. And we need to stop the madness and lower our numbers because there is no way to continue growing like we are as a population and live a reasonably decent life.

My thoughts exactly. These are the same folks who are responsible for flouride, aspartame, corn that makes "anti-sperm antibodies", and a host of other nightmares.

It's not always the technology thats bad. It's the people behind the technology.

Soylent Green Anyone?

This is probably the most humane and potentially most life improving thing that can happen.
There'd be no reason to be vegetarian if you can eat meat that was never part of a conscious being.
It is the way to ascension. Killing is the ultimate form of evil.
