    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
