there are studies now where people are using people as the mass testing subjects. they are using cloned meat and veggies and people aren't telling the difference with it. I can't find any sources because it's been hushed rather quickly, but I can remember reading in science magazines where they are slipping in cloned food at stores in certain areas/locations as real food and no one is able to tell the difference. same with cooking cloned meat vs real meat.
wit that stated, I would, if it tastes the same I would. save the animals and save the plant, also save the location to put farms, since land is scarce these days due to over population.
The real question is whether we'll have a choice in the matter a few years down the line?
With a population growing exponentially, one day we'll need the land that is currently being used for farming to house people. Without farmland where will we get enough food to feed the human race. Not to mention that if the ocean levels rise, that will already take up a huge chunk of living space.
No. I haven't eaten meat in years, and I have no desire to. Lab grown meat is an awesome idea, and I'd love to see it on the market. But I think I'd still be grossed out about eating meat, and I've heard it makes you sick if you haven't eaten it in a long time. I might not avoid it as strictly as I do regular meat, but I wouldn't intentionally eat it.
It depends. If it isn't soy "meat", then sure, I'd be willing to try it. But the fake meat they have now tastes like shit. It doesn't deserve to call itself meat! Not to mention, I heard soy isn't that good for you anyways >.>
Nope. Because I was made to eat real meat not lab made meat. This is how I think: If I were in the wild and a hungry mountain lion would spot me it wouldn't hesitate to eat me. That's why I don't feel guilty about eating a cow. I was designed to eat it.
I love and respect all animals but it's the circle of life and we should respect it as well.
The domestic cow has undergone so much selective breeding that you could very well call it human processed, as it no longer resembles any of its wild cousins. And nobody who is intelligent and has the means drinks cow milk which doesn't undergo human processing (pasteurization) because it's a great way to get sick.
In short, we eat things we weren't 'made to eat' all the time and don't bat an eye.
There's nothing wrong with eating animals, but there's something wrong with the way many of them are raised. I admit I eat these poorly treated farm animals too, but if we can avoid that then why shouldn't we?
But can we avoid it?? I totally agree that these animals are raised in appalling conditions, and its cruel and inhumane.
But the biggest problem is the size of the human race.
If say 200 people consume a cow (between the lot of them, not one cow each ) every day, we would need +- 35million cows to feed the human race for a day. if we want to treat each cow humanely we would need to give every cow at least 20 square meter to move around. We just don't have the space... and its really unfortunate.
But this is the future I think we're heading towards. And we have to realize how difficult it's going to become to maintain any kind of balance going into the future
Nay, artificial meat can't give the same taste & texture as the actual meat anyway. When think about it, if there are people going against harming animals. Since science proof plants are also a living thing, don't that start a movement against people eating plants? Then soon, yeast? I like actual meat anyway, especially if you hunt them yourself, it's rewarding when you eat it. Or at least if you cook everything yourself, you actually feel better preparing the meat yourself rather than just cut up this tofu wannabe.
