Lab Grown Meat gets closer to see consumer plates

Quote

Laboratory-grown meat could soon be available, with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration announcing that they would oversee its production so it could be safely sold to consumers across the country. 

A joint statement released by the two agencies said they would be working together to “foster these innovative food products and maintain the highest standards of public health.” The FDA would be in charge of regulating the collection, banking and growing of the cells used to make artificial meat, while the USDA would work on the production and labeling of food products.

I am really interested in Lab Grown meat becoming available. I can see it being higher quality, more humane, cheaper (when it gets big enough). It will also reduce the environmental impact the meat industry currently has.

 

So would you eat Lab Grown meat.

my parents like the Impossible burger, they say its the best veggy burger so far.

I'd rather pay more for naturally raised meat. Rise up, small farmers.

thats nice, if it can be made more enviromentally friendly im super for it. meat is great but todays production of it is a major source of greenhouse gas, is absolutly disgusting in some places and with this perhaps we could get more local production of all kinds of meats to cut down on transports. i could also see this being a great thing for those that choose to be vegitarians from an ethical standpoint :) 

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

I don't have any prejudice for this stuff really. I already eat "meat" products that are made of milk and vegetable proteins but have texture and taste of meat. I'm not vegetarian and I always defend the fact that humans are omnivores, but if we can actually do that, then why not. Cars liberated horses, maybe these meat growing farms will do the same for cows, pigs and chickens. I just hope it won't be like the scenario from The Island with a slightly different twist...

Agreed.

 

Why is this a thing? So people can eat meat without hurting the poor, precious animals?

Then go out and hunt animals because there is no naturally raised meat on the market.

to reduce the cost, space, and energy of producing meat.

It is also a major factor in global warming. This is a good thing.

So it's being pushed by the environmentalists, not the vegans?

 

I don't think I'll ever switch from real meat.

I'm guessing you've never tried lab meat and you're already saying no to it. What's your reasons?

pushed by realists. Environmentalists are typically the no-evidence anti-gmo idiots. 

Imo this is the next step, and if it makes meat cheaper I'm willing to give it a shot, and if it's successful you wont be able to avoid it. It will be in fast food and likely mixed in with yo ur real meat as a filler.

Are you including the non-GMO, free range, organic meat?

Why do you care who it's being pushed by? There are a wide variety of reasons for wanting to go that way, and many companies are investing to capitalize on the perceived demand.

I was mainly just curious. I'm personally against it.

That's a poor argument. Farming is not natural either, or using computers.

Sounds more like you were interested in mocking those you disagree with.

Sure farming is not natural but at least the meat is 100% real imo.

Farming is more natural than producing farmed products in a lab. Humanity has been farming just a little longer than we've existed

I don't mock people I disagree with. I tend to only go that route with the people that constantly try to force their opinions down my throat. If you disagree with me, that's perfectly fine. I couldn't care less. But when you try to force me to live your way and have the same opinions as you, then we begin to have problems.

 

It's basically that.

I don't care for lab-grown meat personally.

I think it's more of a cost measure. I mean, environmental impact is likely there too, but if they can get low cost meat on the market then hurray. Healthier people.

I still think it's a weird idea, though. I'd try it, but probably only in ground form.

Clearly you've never heard of free range, or small farms where they only have a small handful of animals.

Vastly different than commercial farms.

Medication is more vital than lab-grown meat, so to an extent, yes.

I know quite a few people that have small farms where they raise, kill, and eat chickens.

Farming is not natural at all. Humans were hunter-gatherers for the great majority of our existence.

 

You were mocking animal welfare activists earlier in this thread. And someone getting a product they want isn't forcing anything down your throat.
