Would you eat artificial meat?

Soriyns-Knight Nov 17, 2012  Student General Artist
So science is getting pretty close to being able to grow artificial meat, made without harming any animals. When and if this becomes readily available to a consumer market, would you eat it, and this includes vegetarians and vegans, even if you still don't eat meat regularly would you eat this once in a blue moon?

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.

Artificial meat might be the future :shrug:

And hey, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger

No. I would not.
Doesn't that already exist? You know, like when it's made of dairy and grains in stead of meat but it still tastes like chicken?

Yes I would.

Depends on the resources needed to produce it.

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.

Yeah. Why not? As long as it's safe to eat and pretty much tastes like it came from an animal, I'm all for it.
