    We practically already DO eat meat grown in labs.

    I've heard statistics that say 1/3 of Salmon in stores now is genetically enhanced - but the FDA doesn't require any form of marking, so most people don't know which Salmon is natural.

    Most chicken we consume has never had the ability to stand up, it collapses under it's own weight. Genetically "enhanced" to grow twice as large, twice as fast, chicken feet can't handle it. They're blobs on sticks...

    May as well negate the chicken all together and grow drumsticks! icon_biggrin.gif

    PETA should be happy.

    I would have to know a lot more about the process, what they are adding to the meat in order to make it grow, such as hormones and the over all effect on those that eat the meat.

    As a basic idea, it sounds good, humane and perhaps far more ecologically sound that modern farming.

    If it is healthy to eat, then yes. If it ends up being hormones dripping with antibiotics, no thank you.

    We eat meat that is raised locally, such as free ranch chickens from the 'chicken lady' down the street. She doesn't boost her flock with hormones and antibiotics, her chickens spend the good life scratching around.

    One of my relatives raises 'wild' turkey, the original variety, not the domestic white tom that has been interbred and injected for breasts so large it can't even mount a hen.

    I am sort of picky about what goes on my plate, thus in my belly.

    FO' SHO

    I've been considering recently how I can justify eating meat, as animals clearly feel pain/other emotions we can empathise with too. Eating meat clearly isn't necessary for our species.

    However, I love the taste of meat/fish. Long time.

    Moral codes are relative, moreover, an eclusive, relatively recent human-created notion, in the history of things. Logic doesn't necessarily or categorically rationalise that any life form is exempt from being used as sustenance for another.

    However, most of us have consciences, to varying extents, regarding death and cruelty. We are evolving. Civilisation means that hunting/killing is not a criterion for eating or health.

    This artificially generated meat sounds like a great alternative, assuming they get it to taste and look (also important) like regular meat, to maintain the demand. They need to pump blood through the meat during it's production.

    I hope they quickly develop the technology to create this on a large manufacturing scale. I'd defo give it a try, if and when it's good/healthy/cheap enough; i'd gladly make the change.

    I'd rather eat lab-grown meat than over-processed artery-clogging junk food from Mickey D's.

    This. And if it's cheaper.


    This and that.

    I think I'd have to be able to afford it first. That and it fails my "I'll eat anything with a cardiovascular system." rule

    Lab meat? hell yes! This means that something didn't have to die just for a meal. Maybe eventually they can do the same with veggies. =)
