I think VeganCaramel covers some good points there
Also to add is that to me eating animals would go under the same category as eating humans for most people. It is not a food. Therefore, even if meat was good for you, I would find it disgusting to eat.
The lab grown meat will
- likely still have all of the health negatives as regular meat
- will have needed to come from animal stem cells (meaning animal testing and exploitation was involved)
- need to go through extensive testing to make sure it is fit for human consumption.
And with so many meat substitutes on the market today which are cholesterol free, vegan, and healthy, why would we want this lab grown meat?
It’s an interesting development in food and science, but I don’t think it’s a promising alternative to meat. When it first becomes available to the general public, it is going to be at least 5 times more expensive than vegan meat substitutes – the first amount of this lab grown food already sold at thousands of dollars. There are much better vegetative products that this money could be going to which would help reduce world hunger issues.
At this point, I know too much about the health risks associated with the consumption of meat.
Meat isn’t the correct fuel for the human body.
Humans are designed to get their food from plants.
So, for health reasons, I personally wouldn’t want to eat it.
However, I am really, really hoping someone finds a cost-effective way to mass produce this stuff.
A flawless meat replacement is what we need for the meat eaters who lack willpower and independent thought needed to break free from the eating pattern they were raised with.
