    If it was in something that I was only going to eat occasionally and knew was of negligable nutrient content – like a Maccas hamburger or a hot dog – I probably would.

    These things are already over processed, chemically saturated and have little nutrient to them. I think that if Macca’s switched to Lab grown (and less greenhouse gas was produced from the entire manufacturing process of the Lab meat), there would be less methane around and feed lot cattle. Might be worthwhile for rubbish food like that. :shrug: Normal consumption though … :rip:

    But then again, I did do molecular genetics at uni, and I didn’t do mammalian tissue culture (and hence get grossed out by the cultures). 😉

    oh yuk, hard to imagine it tasting any good. Now I see they are selling diced chicken in tins! If it’s anything like tinned crab it will be tasteless. I’d rather eat baked beans

    I bet the pigs would think it a great idea but my stomach churned when I read Bullseyes post!! :rip:

    “and save some pigs.”

    Uh, who exactly do they think is going to breed pigs at all if there isn’t a use for them? :shrug: Researching sustainable and ethical farming practices would be a much better use of resources.

    That’s the very one. Soylent Green has stuck with me too.

    And I reckon people would turn right off Maccas if they knew it was cultured tissue – they’ve had to justify their meat so much in past years, but I reckon you’d get away with it in a Hot Dog. :confused:
