  • 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?"

    "not into lab-made things..." like toothpaste, perfume, cosmetics, vaccines, medicine, ink, petrolium products, metal alloys, need I go on? You couldn't survive without lab-made things in today's world.

    A few decades ago it costed hundred thousands of dollar to sequence a genome, today it is a 100 bucks. For lab meat I bet this will be even quicker to develop if there is a strong demand and personnally I would this meat even tho I'm not vegan if it is more eco friendly, I'm all for it.

    I'd agree, but ita gotta do a lot to replace the meat industry entirely. They're gonna have to find a way to generate bones.

    "It's unnatural" is such a horrible argument. Wearing clothes and using a smartphone is unnatural. Bubonic plague and brain cancer are completely natural.

    I personally love the idea of lab-grown meat. I've been a vegetarian for a while now, but I've always liked the taste of meat.

    Honestly I'd rather eat lab meat than the stuff factory farms make. Who cares if it's "unnatural", technically medicine is unnatural and we can't live without those
