Test Tube Hamburger Meat? Yep

http://www.naturalnews.com/035020_ar...hamburger.html

Well this should tempt your palate! I wish man would leave mother nature alone. You would think he would learn by now? Where is my 2x4?

I heard the news on the radio yesterday. Kind of amazing. Bit freaky for some. I could see the merits for space exploration also. They can not ship cows to the moon readily, but they could grow this "meat".

EEW.

I read the title, and that's all I really needed to know. I can understand that, people think that one day food is going to be a major problem, but I don't think this is the way to go about it. I mean, sheesh, what's next? chicken or turkey meat? I'd sooner turn vegetarian than eat that. (IMHO)

I would definitely try it. Food like this is inevitable in the future when population exceeds food supply.

When that happens, look for Soylent Green at a supermarket near you!

Oh that is disgusting. I initially thought it was going to refer to something I read last year that on the surface sounded worse ... but when I think about the potential of this one. Well ... I wonder if those acres behind me are coming up for sale. I need more space for my own cows.

Either that or I'm going to be eating a lot of rabbit and duck.

Disgusting. And of course, what could go wrong? They're completely in control, and are aware of all the possible ramifications. Just like they always are.

Every once in a while I regret a post. But I can see this science turning into a freak show. God only knows what they will grow in them test tubes. It could be good for growing replacement parts like a liver or heart perhaps. God knows I have abused mine in the past. Perfect fit parts are always a good thing.
Reading that this "new meat" actually twitches and moves as it grows is kinda Frankenstein.

It can't be any worse then the processed foods they produce now. I and my family mainly eat organic foods (when possible), this is quite the opposite of "organic".

Side note:
If meat is produced in test tubes, will every meat product resemble a hot dog?

I think they can blow the glass in different shapes nowadays...........

Lets hope they do not mix up the labeling.............another can of worms opened there. Cross contamination in the lab. Good material for another horror movie.

Oh, but don't you know, they'll be doing it ON PURPOSE as soon as someone opens the door to let them. Then they'll tell you how great it is that you can have a product that tastes like beef but with all the healthy omega 3s of fish. Or some such, but I bet that's the first one you hear about.

Ten years down the road, after everyone's been gorging on it for a decade, they will discover it causes cancer, or some such.

"Oh, you mean tampering with the genetic codes that affects the growth of cells can actually have effects we didn't foresee?"

Sigh ...

A hamburger that pulsates and twiches made from bovine fetus stem cells. Gotta love scientific progress and the modern food solutions like crossing fish DNA with strawberries or implanting genes from chicken into potatoes. When I read articles like these I'm glad to be living in a country which the gmo food has not yet reached

just give it time they will find you I am sure. Monsanto is not going to be put off by any means. I hope for your sake you are right however.

Perhaps they are already present, but if they are it's in a tiny volume compared to other countries. Food production is quite an industry here and most of the recent trends are based more on ecological aspects instead of artificial ones. Tradition has some advantages I guess.

I'm just waiting for the day they recombine them with something. Perhaps red wiggler salad, who knows?

I understand red wigglers are very high in protein.

I'll pass though, thanks.
