    Interesting! If this became widespread, and perfected, I wonder if slaughter houses and such would become a thing of the past?

    I wonder also if vegetarians would begin to eat meat?

    I stopped eating meat decades ago because of the huge environmental footprint of meat production and because of animal rights. I don't know how this new stuff will score on the former but I can't think of a strong argument against it on the latter. Hmm.

    I'm a bit skeptical. If it's "wonder bread white" meat missing nutrients, I'll pass. But the article does not have enough technical information for me to judge.

    This is my concern as well. Where do the macronutrients and fats come from, etc.

    there you go....you got it

    saw the documentary.....it all depends on the skill of the technician
    and without the taste of blood in it
    you can tell the difference

    even so....
    the petri dish is not a grazing scheme of things
    the nutrients come from the ground

    the cow needs to eat grass...not corn

    on the other hand
    the scheme of cattle production is about to fail

    in theory...one human can live on the produce of one acre of ground
    given good soil
    rotated crops
    fresh water
    etc

    Cows mature over three acres and five years time
    huge amount of water needed

    they are ecologically expensive

    I'm personally holding out for lab grown vegetables, being the vegetable rights activist that I am.

    My daughter is a vegetarian. I'm quite sure she will not go for lab grown meat. But she does use a brand of 'meatless' meat, 'Beyondmeat'.

    I'm a big fan of Beyond and Impossible. In fact, I just had a Beyond pizza from Pizza Hut last night.

    But no, vegetarians will not likely go for lab created meat, unless the sole reason for their vegetarian diet is animal rights.

    I will certainly have to try it. I am told Beyond makes great meatballs and burgers, especially on the grill. I'm sure it may be equally as good in many casserole dishes. Just remembered the burgers come already formed, and ready for the grill. Good for anyone who has to be careful of their iron intake.
