If you eat quorn you are already eating lab grown meat substitute, so what would be the difference?


yes good point

i think because western food is so bad that people now have a knee jerk reaction to any change
i understand it as the way GMO has been with patents on genes is dodgy
and the way GMO has been introduced without public input/labels creates anger/concern

and the big companies are money chasing liars

GMO is progress though
but at first like anything mistakes happen so they do need to be careful

People are thinking its GMO meat, i am not talking about GMO

i have some great health tips that work fast and not many people know about if anyone wants let me know, important ones to rid diabetes use moringa oleifera, cancer google mms1 Jim Humble
spirulina is needed now as vegetables are grown in the same location with just chemicals, meditate.

re: So as long as ... there's not a load of science disproving side affects, we're not going there.
... side effects are the same as cow


Until there's two reproductive generations of testing, I maintain that it's premature to say definitively, that the side affects are the same as cow. They just can't know yet.

Statements like this one from one of the scientists, are what unnerve me; "Genetically modified food is already normal practice and nobody dies."

Nobody dies? Nobody dies?? That's not the same as "safe", & certainly not a good enough reason to launch it onto the public, says I.

Maybe it is safe, maybe lab grown meat will be the best thing since sliced GMO bread ;-) but my family will wait till we know.

Cheers!

ETA: glad to hear that you don't eat current mystery meat either

I would continue to hunt and consume on my own before I ate this Lab Smeat.

Of course if it was live or die...I would eat it before I died from starvation, but I would have to be pretty far gone to even consider it to be honest.


if we treat the planet like it has infinite resources we might not have a choice,

even if the meat will look/taste the same you would need to be hard up?

re:

funny

very logical, when the product is ready for the shelves we can sus it out fully

it would be good to take the pressure of nature as meat production/feed is a big concern to consider

did you hear about meat glue being used? like we are meat so that sounds sus,also nitrate in processed meats? eeeek

Which is worse? The pink slime they use to make some items or lab grown? I prefer not to eat either.

The level of ignorance is astonishing. The knee jerk reaction from hearing "lab meat" is whats making most of you blindly say NO NO NO before you even understand the implications of this technology. Using stem cells to grow muscle tissue for us to consume (steak, chicken, etc.) is no different then raising and slaughtering the cow.

What IS different is that NOW we wont need to slaughter literally MILLIONS of animals daily and pollute and destroy more land through industrial farming.

Invitro meat would be disease free, no need for antibiotics and other additives like they use in today, old, clunky industrial process.

Also its important to realize once we start getting better at genetic engineering and making it safer, which wont be long, we will be able to provide cleansafe food for everyone. People need to stop thinking so black and white like " OH NO LAB MEAT, OMG MONSANTO, CHANGE IS SCARY. And just to add, I am totally against the poor ethics of companies like monsanto and current gmo process but that doesnt mean that soon we wont be able to perfect it with things like nano-tech.

Think about how beneficial this could be before shutting yourself off because your knee jerked before your brain did.

Yeh, its food so id eat it. Kinda pathetic saying you wouldn't, considering the millions of people who live there lives on the brink of starvation.

McDonalds was putting "pink slime" into their burgers. The pink slime had to have started in a lab somewhere. Millions, if not billions, of burgers were sold before someone blew the whistle on McDonalds.

If it tastes good covered in A1 sauce, or can be grilled, then my answer is yes. But this is coming from a guy who loves frog legs, crawdads, and just about anything else. Where I live we grew up liking our water, but found out Dupont poisoned us, so whats a little bit of lab meat going to do that hasn't already been done.

I find it hilarious people think cells of meat grown in a sterile lab are disgusting...but the torturer and slow death of poor innocent animals, injected with antibiotics and growth hormones carrying disease and worms and numerous parasites and "machine separated" up while still covered in their own filthy waste(which they are sometimes re-fed is not a problem.


Let us see sterile lab or (have you ever seen) feed lots and slaughter house! With their own complement of flies.

(Reuters) - In a small laboratory on an upper floor of the basic science building at the Medical University of South Carolina, Vladimir Mironov, M.D., Ph.D., has been working for a decade to grow meat.

www.reuters.com...

I think its what the animals/plants need as meat production/feed uses huge tracts of land
any thoughts?

Also would like to know what vegetarians think

they will be able to grow any meat from a small sample of other lab grown meat


As a vegetarian I have no need for meat, but if the process was not hurting any animals and the product was pure and healthy I might use some. we don't miss meat at all so hard to know, but our objections would be removed.

No. Not knowingly. We don't even eat "chunked & formed", or "processed" meat (hot dogs, lunch meat etc) now.

I firmly believe that the further you get from natural foods, the more health problems. Until I read a generation or two of testing refuting this, I won't be convinced that there's no connection.

So as long as "real meat" is available, & there's not a load of science disproving side affects, we're not going there.

You really need to look at meat production before you use the word natural!

What does it taste like?
If it tastes good I might go for it.

My guess is, it would taste like chicken.


On a serious note. I prefer they leave the food supply alone. They put junk in there that doesnt belong.

Lab grown meat would not be radiclly different than the chemically treated & processed meat protein we now injest

the FDA allows junk like 'natural flavorings' (AKA monosodium glutimate) to be doused all over foods

the GMO corns & grains are deliberately not listed as ingredients because the public would react negatively
~all one can reasonably do is to not consume copious ammounts of crap they think is no good/GM or else radiated
and hope they made wise choices


i surely do not consume cokes or doritos, pizzas and many other products i do not consider "foods"

The better question is will you know that you are eating it?


If I recall correctly the gov't allowed companies that clone cows to sell their product without having it to disclose it to the consumer nor labeling it as such.

If it was 100% good for us with no side effects
If no animal had to suffer AND pollute AND eat vegetables that we need to harvest additionally
If it tastes good

Sure, bring it on.

90% of meat is grown with gmo corn now...would lab meat be that worst?

Very very good points.

I actually dream about the time we can have replicators like in star trek, so I look forward to other ways of producing food than the archaic, disrespectful and dirty way we do it now in order to gain mass production with low costs.

Again, only if it's a safe alternative of course.
