Inside the Quest to Make Lab Grown Meat | WIRED

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?"

A happy animal killed humanely? BRAGGING! There is no humane way to kill, to ignore the right to life of an animal! There is no HUMAN METHOD OF KILLING !! I wonder what we are able to claim on the body of a living being who wish to live right? Their inability to speak cannot justify us to eat them. Some of you have never seen a slaughterhouse video. Please watch earthlings document and see the brutality! Watch the cowspiracy and dominion documentaries and see what you've done to our planet! Animals are sensitive to pain, conscious and aware of their living values, are living things, social life, bonding, family lives, feeling pleasure and pain, making friends, playing games ... They are like people. There is no difference between a dog and a dog both want to live. Then, according to your logic, the dog who wants a dog in the shed and kill it, it does not suffer, what kind of mindset? Every year, 74 billion are killed in shabby slaughterhouses. In fact, they're killed in life. They're exploited for life. You are unaware of the realities and the value of life in the sector. 70 percent of the world's water resources, 70 percent of agricultural land is spent on the livestock sector, global warming and climate change caused by the livestock sector is 50 percent. 90 percent of the rainforest in the Amazon rain forests have been slaughtered! While nature, the environment, our planet and its animals are never needed, and by science, animal products are known to cause many diseases such as coronary heart disease, cholesterol, vascular occlusion, cancer, diabetes, type 2 diabetes. While you can live more healthier with plants while you have no need, you are totally arbitrarily experiencing the cruelty of innocent animals. Animals are not created for us. The fact that animals cannot speak and cannot talk about their problems does not mean that you are superior to them. This is an excuse for your 5-minute palate. an absurd and egoistic excuse that ends in pain and massacre. Their helpless and innocent nature does not justify dominating, cutting and eating. You always have ridiculous and empty excuses. Question your conscience, empathize with animals in slaughterhouses and farms!

I really enjoy meat and eat it regularly. I was vegetarian for a year once upon a time but came to believe that it is totally ethical for us to eat animals (and that our evolution into humans was in a big part influenced by meat eating). I am also really suspicious of processed or altered foods and go out of my way to avoid GE foods and eat organic wherever possible. However I feel totally different about lab grown meat. Because of the potential environmental benefits and the fact we don't have to kill or farm animals I would be totally keen to be an early adopter. I can even foresee a day when we as a society look back and see regular meat as barbaric.

Don't be fooled, guys. Think about it, they would still need to harbor these animals to get the cell samples and grow the flesh in a fast and efficient manner because of the enormous demand for meat. How else do you think they're going to get these samples and feed billions of people? Do you think they're just going to approach a random cow, pig, chicken, or fish and be like "hey lemme just rip off a piece of your meat and I'll set you free"...LOL no. These poor animals will still be trapped. This process is just another excuse to justify their evil, primitive means. Going vegan is the only way to save this dying planet and the living organisms within it.

I think it will succeed if it has the right taste, texture, isn't to expensive, has no negative health effects/ has health benefits and is easily available. I'm hopeful that it will do all of these someday.

wait why is it surprising that vegan's support this? I always assumed the ethical reasoning is the basis behind why vegans don't eat meat so removing that need means that there's no reason not to

I think this meat looks fine, it basically looks like ground beef. You could prolly replace hamburger meat with this and nobody would ever know. Idk how many animals you could save just by doing that, but prolly a lot

This video is around a year old, and Beyond Meat (not the same company but still lab grown meat) is supposed to be pretty good.
I feel like I'm living in a sci fi movie world, feeling old and I'm only 14! haha but I like the idea a lot, we won't have to abuse and kill animals anymore, they're like lifeless slaves to humans now and I think they shoud have equal rights to humans. I really love animals and think this is going to improve humanity, but is algo going to contribute to overpopulation wich is not that good. We're too many

At some point people will just have to get over the "ew" factor. There will be 10 billion people on this planet and relying on factory farming of animals, which is already dystopian, will reach a point where it cannot be justified anymore. I love meat, but I don't want factory farming to become worse than it already is. I will welcome this new lab grown meat.

There are over 20,000 species of edible plants in the world yet fewer than 20 species now provide 90% of our food. Plant-based meats and cheeses are getting much better and more affordable. Vegans and vegetarians can buy plant- based until we figure out how make lab grown 100% ethical. Future food can be delicious, nutritious, sustainable, and ethical; all at the same time.

Michael Flack (2 months ago)
Despite the expected opposition against this change in the food industry, any means of mass producing meat without the need to raise live animals would be eventually more effective and cheaper due to the reliability of production (traditional methods are at the mercy of drought/flood conditions and years of effort can vanish after a flood kills and ruins all the livestock in one go (or bushfires/grassfires) This method would also have the support of the majority of vegan groups (with the exception of a few who flat out refuse to even accept meat flavored substitutes) and since the price would become a economic driver the popularity would spread making traditional meat the taboo of society. And its for this reason the traditional meat industry will struggle for all its worth as they could not compete with fake meat once the process is perfected and they would not survive the social stigma of being an industry that kills when it has the alternative (sport hunting and fishing would also see the red flags and join the fight to preemptively protect their right to hunt gather before it becomes impossible to win the debate with artificial meat a market place reality)
thereggub (2 months ago)
Most meat has to be functional for it to taste good. Maybe once they can reliably lab grow meat, they can attach it to a artificial skeleton to ensure constant growth and functionality.

I am really hoping they do get something like a chicken leg, or else this is just not a good replacement for *all meat* only chicken nuggets, sausages, and things with no bones I don't mind a leg with no bones though, it just has to be the same or similar, I don't want a nugget in the shape of a leg I want a leg
amekanasai (3 months ago)
I'm not sure how "natural" the meats we are eating currently are either. Probably fed with processed leftovers and hormones / vaccines / chemicals laden to ensure they grow up fat and fast to be slaughtered. As for fruits and vegetables, those going for "all natural" can try the wild strains and let us know. You probably can't even recognize them in the first place.
