    An interesting article.
    I think I would rather encourage people to eat more veggie meals - and then enjoy a little 'real' meat from time to time.
    Practically however, I can't see that happening. people are going to demand their meat - at least twice a day in my brother's case, preferably three times! (He enjoys my veggie bake but likes a couple of thick sausages with it!)
    And would this test-tube meat be any worse than the chemically removed ersatz-meat in cheap nuggets and burgers?

    I'd just be worrried it wouldn't taste of anything, with no real exercise (other than the faked exercise mentioned in the book, and also the lack of real food that can make such a difference. Pastured cows do taste so much better than grain-fed ones.

    Thankfully, it's unlikely to be perfected within my lifetime, but it goes to show the extent they will go to to produce synthetic food. I think it's more proof that I was born at the right time, that is, in addition to being born after penicillin was discovered and sowing my wild oats before AIDS.

    Two words:
    Soylent Green
    A much simpler and more cost effective option which would ultimately save the planet through reduction of over population, and provision of a food source for the rest of humankind.......[​IMG]
     
  6. That and Logan's Run came to mind when I read this.... speed up the reductive process.
