Most vegans (not one cohesive hive-mind, btw) would disapprove of being a pescaterian, so why are you giving a shit about what they'll have to say about this ? Are you saying you can't see the difference between lab grown cell cultures and living creatures who are prone to abuse when it comes to industrial farming ? Are you aware of the environmental damage industrial farming of livestock causes, including fish farms and the massive over-fishing that goes on ?I'm saying animal cells are animal cells, their DNA is animal dna no matter whether they're grown in a field or a lab. Just because this steak didn't grow up wandering a field doesn't make this "not-animal". I'd be interested in what vegans have to say about it but this pescaterian won't be eating labcow
Yes, I have watched it. What is the 'nutrient dense serum' that they add to the cells? As I understand it, virtually all lab grown meat use a 'meat broth' or fetal serum. You don't just put some cells in a petri dish and watch them grow.Did you watch the video?
They are not raising cattle. Its not foetal at all. They are growing beef from beef cells...in petrie dishes.
Ok.. you're objecting to fetal serum?Yes, I have watched it. What is the 'nutrient dense serum' that they add to the cells? As I understand it, virtually all lab grown meat use a 'meat broth' or fetal serum. You don't just put some cells in a petri dish and watch them grow.
The reason why this has been making the science news in 2018 is because back then it was a theory, now its close to being reality. The technology is there, the only thing in its way are regulations and cost. They aren't at a point where they can produce an actual steak, with muscle and fat texture but they can make convicting ground beef and processed meat products like burgers and sausages. Steak, etc is a few years away."Test tube meat" takes us back to an even earlier thread on this subject - from 2005..!
