Eventually, they will develop a syringe full of liquid steak, and you'll just get a hot beef injection.

I hope Donna comes pretty soon, man. Hope she hasn't eaten. I got something for her. A tubesteak smothered in underwear. Mmm.

Well it is better than that meat made from crap that Japan came up with.

As  a vegetarian (not vegan! those people are nutso) of several decades, I would love to bite into some vat-grown meat.  If we can culture protein for mass consumption, we can free up huge amounts of resources that are currently used to raise meat on the hoof.

I'm not sure folks realize exactly how much land, water, grain, and energy go into making meat for people.

Sure, it's all fine and dandy until those protein cultures brandish guns at federal agents.

"We feel confident that consumers will continue to trust and prefer traditionally raised (not lab-engineered) beef. No laboratory product will ever be able to take the place of cattlemen and women or the dedication they have to the customer, the consumer, or to rural America," said Chase Adams, spokesman for the National Cattlemen's Beef Association.

That's some quality concern trolling right there, but I have bad news for Mr. Adams and the beef industry. Consumers took right to lab-engineered potato chips (Pringles), fake crab meat (surimi) and Spam/Bologna/Weeners, which are arguably not too far off being "lab-engineered" meat products. Economical and tasty lab-engineered meat products will be welcomed with open arms and a ready market. Make mine with lots of fat and salt, please...mkay?

I too welcome the coming cattle holocaust once they have fulfilled their usefulness.

Aaaaaaand this is why you should probably look at people's handles before mindlessly trolling a thread.

It doesn't say anything about iron. I love the idea and understand but as a highly frequent blood donor I would need to know how much heme iron is in this stuff before I switch over. Iron pills and green veggies have iron which is not easily absorbed by the body so I am stuck with eating a bunch of red meat to keep my red cell production up.

why not just raise livestock who aspire to be eaten by us?

Plus, if it can be grown in sterile conditions, you can eliminate the need for antibiotics, massively reducing the speed at which bacteria evolve to resist them.

If we can make this economically viable I'd be fine with eating it. People are too suckered in with the "nature gud, science bad" idea. That's how you get stupid shiat like the "raw milk" crowd.
I wonder if we can get this to be cheaper than regular meat. Then we could provide a cheap source of protein for the poor.
