Food scientists and startups are trying to make meat more ethically appealing by growing it -- cell by cell -- in a lab instead of on a farm. Even some vegans support so-called "clean" meat. But can lab grown meat overcome the dreaded "yuck factor?" Still haven’t subscribed to WIRED on YouTube? ►► http://wrd.cm/15fP7B7 ABOUT WIRED WIRED is where tomorrow is realized.

The best part of lab grown meat is if they can replicate the flavour and texture of any meat, we can find the most delicious but unviable meat sources and make them standard. Someday lab grown Panda might be the best thing ever

"To feed our growing population"..? Excuse me? What growing population? Last time i checked all the western countries had declining birth rates... You probably meant to say "worldwide"?

I like how vegans like this idea but if this becomes mainstream we probably wont have the need to keep animals around anymore anyways. RIP

people who is against this type of meat are a joke. If this meat become commercially viable, all the lands that we used for livestock would be free for farming, more food for everyone and no bad feelings for eating an once living thing
This is better (if it works) , rather than slaughtering animals large scale !

It may be more ethical but I'm it sure how my body would react to meat again. It's good that people are waking up and understanding that, if we don't get it together we won't be here much longer.

it’s awesome that we can make lab made meat but what happens if we start selling this to the world. What happens to the animals? Are people going going to loose their jobs associated with slaughter or farming? I doubt that i’d be right but what are we going to do if we have too many animals? Are we going to keep slaughtering them and sell lab made meat? The thing is : if one day we start eating lab made meat and not live animal meat, are we going to be able to handle it? If anyone has an idea or actually knows what will happens, i’d love to hear it.

At first lab grown meat will be following all ethical standards. However it will eventually break the rules just like meat industries today. Only time can tell but it will erupt with horrendous effects. Who knows maybe even human meat will be sold. Think about it there are plenty of nuts out there.

The problem is the price. Once its low enough to compete with normal meat it will take off, especially if they can make so theres no fat or make it more healthy.

How to make potato taste like meat: boil a potato until it's soft, add soy sauce, salt, and vinegar (if you prefer the taste), done.

I don't care if it has all the different types of tissue in it. If it tastes as good as ground meat, I'll eat it.

Lab grown meat in market can be a game changer in many ways. Of course it wouldn't replace all the existing farmed meat (that would be bad)
Bob Birdsong (1 day ago)
It looks like to me they don't have the texture right, which is imperative to meat quality. It does look lab grown. To get past this, they'd have to make these meat products in larger batches where a more "natural" tissue growth process could happen. I'm very excited to see this come to market, hopefully it doesn't just end up being a novelty and really revolutionizes the food industry.

What if while trying to lab grown meat you isolate bone tissue and other cells to think they're rebuilding that part of the body so it would try to rebuild a simple muscle or with special chemicals a heart, but the chemicals would help a genetically modified stem cell bypass its DNA and tell it to keep building the organ or muscle. And with another group of cells there would be an added artificial immune system to keep the tissue alive
TheMidnightKing (1 day ago)
and with this special stem cell meat it would also try to rebuild a leg which can be separated into to parts that do things and to add flavor feed flavor or inject scents and stuff inject that into the stem cells and meat

i'm all for clean meat and love this video, but i don't think PETA's goal is to eradicate animal suffering, considering how many stray animals and feral cats they've killed.

This is dope I fully support it! Goodbye animal cruelty fueled meat and hello clear conscience.
Chloe Zheng (1 day ago)
this is great! I don't understand why everyone is so grossed out by this. Eating natural meat is literally eating the remains of another being, which is far more disgusting (and cruel) than eating meat grown in a lab.

Nais, so If you get a stem cell or two you could probably recreate limbs.. or.. people

"It's unnatural", Americans are like the in the top in consumption of flavours. I would try this just because of my curiosity. It's probably still expensive and low scale now though.
kev3d (1 day ago)
It's very simple: the lab-meat needs to meet or exceed flavor, texture, nutrition and cost effectiveness of conventional meat. When it does all of those things, then it will take over.
