The announcement of the launch of lab grown meat- the meat grown from the cells of dead animals throws up an interesting few questions.
Scientists took cells from a cow and, at an institute in the Netherlands, turned them into strips of muscle which they combined to make a patty.
Researchers say the technology could be a sustainable way of meeting what they say is a growing demand for meat and that it’s healthier than eating dead flesh that is full of bacteria and fecal matter.
Critics say that eating less meat would be an easier way to tackle predicted food shortages.
Where do you stand on this? Personally as a vegan the whole thing is a no-no; fake meat grown from cells is still meat so the ethical side is a bit less sticky but the health side seems questionable. If you are a meat eater is it easier to stomach? Do you give a fuck? Is this a creating a whole new set of problems?…and where is Morrissey when we need him!
