The cows must be shaking in their hooves.

I noticed that although she was demonstrating tearing up the piece of "chicken" she only tasted the heavily seasoned and sauced versions.

Nothing was said about the environmental costs of all the processing involved in producing this stuff. Cattle may produce a lot of methane but they fertilise their own pasture and if they weren't there to eat the grass we'd have to use fossil fuels to cut it.

Can't win either way.

Sounds better than cultured or test tube beef, but not by much.

Soylent Green can't be far off now!

I'll give you my pork chop when you pry it from my cold, dead hands!
