Apparently this is causing a schism in PETA. Some folks are say, heck yeah, we've been waiting for this and others are saying, it's meat - it's bad.

Those PETA people are psycho/schizo... There's no pleasing them. If they had their way we would be back to a hunting and gathering society minus the hunting. Eat vegetables, pull up roots..., eat nuts, chew on pine needles. (I've heard of pine needle tea...)

IMO when you look at the science, artificially grown animal protein as a source of food is inevitable. Factory production of meat as a commercial advantage of scale over ranching real beef (or other animals). There are no seasons, no variations of feed quality.

Producing beef (or any other animal tissue) could become no more complicated than cracking crude oil to produce gasoline and the other derivatives of crude oil.

Who knows? Maybe you can crack crude oil into prime beef, with a bit of stem cell lab processing...

$325K to develop isn't bad at all. Give some to America's test kitchen and see what they come up with.

I like the idea. I just hope they can come up with a palatable alternative.

Is this a different burger from the thread started earlier today?
Where's a mod when you need one? I'm sure they wouldn't let a duplicate thread go on.

When I think of PETA and their opposition to consuming animal protein I think of the other faction that objects to GMO (genetically modified) food, the so called "Frankenfood."

I think this product will face a huge public relations problem.

This isn't technically GMO.

So it's the stem cell meat posted about earlier.
Thanks. I was hoping for something different

Well I don't know. The whole thing makes me feel a bit queasy really.

We are told that the world, at some stage, won't be able to farm enough animals to feed the human population.

I don't eat many burgers or a lot of meat in the first place, so I think I will stick to eating the real thing - in moderation. Quality not quantity.

I'm a science fiction plan, and it's a common theme to have vat grown meats.

It's always been a logical move to me.
