POLL: Would you support the consumption of TEST-TUBE MEAT grown from laboratories?

POLL: Would you support the consumption of TEST-TUBE MEAT grown from laboratories?

2015-10-19 
| by Editor | Posted in Polls

 

A number of scientists from various countries have been investigating the feasibility of growing meat in a laboratory from the stem cells of farm animals, owing to concerns about the environment, food sustainability as well as animal cruelty. 

 

 

Some hail test-tube meat as the solution to our food problems in the 21st century. After all, it does not require the artificial insemination of vast amounts of farm animals feeding on equally vast amounts of land, water and crops, and on the surface extracting tissues from these animals involves far less suffering than the largely industrial transport and slaughtering process commonplace in today’s society. And with the huge potential in the food technology that we possess, we might even be able to replicate, or even better, the taste of the original piece of steak or burger that so many on this planet live and die for...

 

 

However, the technology required for lab-grown meat to become vastly available to the masses is still at its infantry stage and hence any newly unveiled test-tube meat would be eye-wateringly expensive and virtually unaffordable except for a select lucky few on the planet. And with our limited time, energy and resources to reverse the extensive damage already inflicted on planet Earth, would we be better off not eating ANY meat (and other animal products) whatsoever than trying to outwit nature with costly manmade technology in the meat production business – albeit at a relatively small cost of not pandering to the whims of our taste buds?
