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.

Clean meat is the future I believe and I think it'll be the main factor in bringing an end to animal agriculture/slaughterhouses (which might occur over a several decade period). I'll be proud to have been vegan during this time though before clean meat probably takes over 'dirty meat'. I'll be proud to have stood up for what's right, whether people choose to mock and criticize us now and whether the world will even later appreciate our stance or not.

Incredible what an effort we take to give meat lovers an alternative that they can live with... stopping animal torture, saving the environment and making people eat healthier just doesn't seem reasonable enough to just not eat meat. Is there no other food on this planet? Will not consuming meat make us so desperate that life is not worth living anymore. I just can't believe how spoilt we are .

Lab meat would be a good alternative for areas that rely on imported meat products. Like Alaska, Antarctica, and islands ect.

Love how WIRED puts an emphasis on people's reactions towards lab grown meat, while they completely leave out people's reactions on the Impossible meat, even though the concerns about the heavily genetically modified components of the Impossible meat are MUCH more of a concern than real meat. Not pushing an agenda at all...

Sure glad I wont be here for that. They will find out a decade or so latter what damage it causes. Like all the super Drugs that are safe until later.

Definitely think this is a great idea that should be made public worldwide, only problem would be to make people realize how great of an idea this is, and considering how dumb and simple minded we are that will definitely be the hardest part, hope that atleast in the next 20 years this has become something more normal.

Some meat eaters: We should be able to eat whatever we want! Same group: How dare you create this burger! You can't just eat whatever you want!

I'm absolutely sure they will pull this off with time. And I think we can not even imagine how food will look like in 100 years. First it will look like regular food, only its lab grown, then people will start getting creative

This sounds like the origin plot for the next zombie flick: “ hordes of vegans infected by a viral contaminant in so-called “ clean “ meat began savagely attacking other humans in their slavering for real food, i.e. meat” oh , wait....
This is a lump of proteins, not meat. Actual meat contains a bunch of vitamins and minerals that can only get in the meat through diet and organs of the animals. There is no vitamin A, B6, B12, C, D, K2 or any minerals in this lump of proteins.

You think flat-earthers and anti-GMO are bad now. The people who will rise up against lab-grown meat will make those other groups pale in comparison.

you went to what looks like a farmers market to ask people’s opinion about lab meat , people there are already gonna be health freaks so it’s only natural that they would disapprove of it . go somewhere there will be more scientists and you will probably get very different answers

I love the taste of meat. But the fact I'm actually eating a dead being, that have being killed just for me to eat something pleasant in taste when I don't need it physically, it gross me out, that's why I'm vegetarian. So I'm pretty exited to see this becoming a thing in the next years. If I can afford it, I will definitely do it.
Sisi Mccsil (22 days ago)
+Ethan Steel Well yes, thank you very much for the information. So what ? I don't need meat to live, I, however, need plants, grains and other nutrients that I can only found in plants. I'm not, and don't have to, be grossed out by the fact that I'm eating plants, because I need to. Carnivorous need meat to live, so they CAN'T be vegetarian. Human are omnivorous. Means : we CAN eat meat, but we DON'T need to. However, we NEED plants. Moron.
Ethan Steel (22 days ago)
Plants are living things too, moron.

People have a choice, but selfishly choose the cruel slaughter of an animal over a potentially more healthier alternative. Sadly we Human Beings are being exposed for what we really are - PURE EVIL !!

Guess we'll probably be eating bugs before lab grown meat. No prob. Waiting is the best seasoning
Klia Klia (2 months ago)
Lab meats will eventually become cheaper(if not several times cheaper) than animal's meats. It will be easier/faster to grow, takes less energy/water/lands.... . If it tastes the same (or 95% same)... then People will buy it, and eat it!...We dont even need to talk about morality aspect. It makes perfect sense! No more killing, great!
Gabriel Caballero (2 months ago)
What I want to know is the social/economic consequences of this technology. What will happen to all the farmers whose jobs will be outsourced to the labs? What will be of all the rural lands? What will happen when this technology is used by corporations?

if you're going to grow meat in a lab, you should start with meat for animal feed. for human consumption the perfect protein for humans would be, well lab grown human flesh #fact

Malacki 655 (2 months ago)
I'm worried about the nutritional value and health implications,for example,does it pack as much protein per 100g as normal meat,are there any hidden diseases,long term health problems etc.
P (2 months ago)
Too early to be certain. But our diet already contains tons of processed and refined and altered components which lack nutrition or introduce adverse health concerns. And eating force-cloned vat-grown meat isn't any more (or any less) disgusting than eating natural meat stripped off slaughtered animals.

P my God has. That's where you show your intelligence. There's actually plenty of food for the world growing population. But you see media and vids like this make simple minded people like "you" think we're running out. It's called supply and demand. Economics 101, but dumbass people like u don't actually read statistics.

But like why tho, like personally I think its gross, and like we could just eat animals ya know. Like just eat them oml. And like its still meat so vegans would be eating animal products, like its grown in a lab, but its still meat. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Reminds me of the movie mr. nobody, how a man far in the future is describing how they " used to eat meat." This might be the beginning of something huge.
