Default Would you eat it ? In vitro meat

Dutch scientists are developing meat grown from stem cells. This isn't the poo-meat from Japan but its still pretty weird. The biggest question is, would you eat it ?

I imagine the most effective use of this stuff would be for making ground beef and in prepared meat products. That would leave the real beef for steaks and roasts, things with real meat texture.

Which goes to show how much of our sense of taste is psychological. The office where my wife used to work had a potluck once a month, and she would bring a vegetarian dish featuring some sort of mock meat. Everyone would pile into it and rave ... until they discovered it wasn't actual beef or chicken. It got to where some of the workers had to be told in advance which dish was Jeanette's so they could avoid it ... because otherwise they'd eat it without realizing it wasn't meat.

I'd give it a try. Hopefully they can do it with as many organic inputs as possible.

There's a very interesting book about why people prefer certain foods and are disgusted by others (we can eat almost anything, which is why our species has expanded to cover almost all of this globe).

We eat all sorts of industrial created crapola anyway, this could hardly be worse. In fact, it would be better. It wouldn't be laden with antibiotics and growth hormones. Yeah, put that sucker on my plate. I'd chow it down.

Perhaps. It depends on a number of factors.

eat fresh, eat healthy, eat wisely.

My advice is stay away from this kind of food, folks. Nothing good can come from it. The idea of this is yuckie-yuck-yuck!!! xXx

You may be right, but I'd be interested in hearing your reasoning. You say, "Eat fresh, eat healthy, eat wisely." But surely meat grown in vitro and taken directly to the retailer is even fresher than meat that has been taken from the slaughterhouse to the distributor's warehouse, kept there under refrigeration, then trucked to the retail outlet? And since in vitro meat is grown from the same cells that carnivores eat as food, and is therefore identical to slaughtered meat, it must be equally healthy, must it not? So if it is wise to eat meat from the slaughterhouse, it must be equally wise to eat it from the test tube, no? Or perhaps this is why we are both vegetarians.

Any food that begins with 'in vitro' doesnt make one want to eat it. The fact we are vegetarians means that slaughter in any form doesnt sit right with us but 'in vitro' deepens my sadness. Scientific intervention with a method of meat production does not - I'm sure - sit well with most. It all comes down down to personal choice and mine is to forever be a dedicated vegetarian. I do not need a qualified scientist to tamper with my foods. I visit local organic farms, buy fresh and keep my diet as untainted as possible. Does the sentence "eat meat from a testube" make a meat eater feel cofortable instead of meat as it is "traditionally" processed? It has worked for hundreds of years for our forefathers. Maybe we should ask ourselves WHY do it from a testube instead of "traditionally". If it aint broke and all that. My vegetarianism is MY choice, I dont agree with slaughter in any way but I respect anyone who see's and chooses otherwise :o) choice is a wonderful thing but what I hve learned is my opinion will count for very little as food producers will do what they will do regardless of you or me for their profit margins etc.

The thing about this process is that the "parent" animal doesn't have to be killed to produce the "meat", its cells could be harvested from a small tissue sample and then be sent on its merry way. This is far better than the shit meat from this thread: http://www.dimensionsmagazine.com/fo...ad.php?t=86572

It would be interesting to see if they can make a death-free meat substitute that most meat eaters would enjoy. This also helps to solve the problems associated with huge cattle ranches. This product also wouldn't require any of the antibiotics that a normal cow gets during its life. PETA has made me violently anti-animal rights, every time they make the news I hit a squirrel with my car in protest, but this product is interesting. Even if it only replaces the meat in processed and pet foods it would make a huge dent in the amount of livestock animals needed.

It's broke. This is why, here in America anyway, 80% of our beef comes from feed lots and virtually 100% of our chicken and turkey comes from factory farms. A very few farmers still raise animals the traditional way, and rich people and upscale restaurants buy all they raise: nobody else can afford it. In 1972(according to a book called Who Owns America?, published that year) ten percent of the population owned 90% of the country's wealth; 20 years later (same book, new edition) five percent of the people owned 90% of the wealth. As the wealth gets more concentrated, ordinary people have to cut back on lots of things ... including meat? Not if the meat industry can make it cheaper -- by eliminating feed, mass antibiotics to prevent epidemics, electric sensors and armed guards to prevent the public from entering (or even getting a look at) their "farms", and a massive waste disposal problem. In vitro meat will eliminate all these expenses. I suspect that within twenty years there will still be a few traditional farms raising meat for the wealthy, but everyone else will eat in vitro meat without imagining that there is any other kind.
