    I feel bad for that little burger, because nowadays little burgers can be quite cruel and went it goes to school the other little burgers will tease him for being a test tube burger, lol.

    All kidding aside, what will they come up with next?

    I'm waiting for the test tube t-bone and the lab beaker brisket.

    Seriously, there's some real benefits to lab-made meat, including enviromental and animal cruelty issues.

      We could all just change to a vegetarian diet...and live longer and get thinner...

      But that's not going to happen.

      I'm more interested in lab grown, genetically matched organs.

        Which is why test tube meat is worth looking into...

        BTW, the taste testers said the problem with the lab meat was there was no fat, so the taste was very bland.

        Luckily, it's not either/or, but both, growing both organs and meat.

          Kurt. Stop making sense. And stop saying things that don't make me look like a genius.

          From now on, please start every post with "I owe everything to Claude, and here's what he taught me..." ...and then you can sound as bright as you like!

          That will make it soooo much easier on me.

      I have a feeling there will be some issues with this down the road. But it appears that it could be a viable solution to factory beef.
      If it could wipe out that element of the food industry it would be great.
      Hopefully they won't have to resort to the lies and mis-information that the G.E. crop crowd uses to push their poison and hopefully they aren't hiding anything when it comes to the ingredients.
      I think there will be a lot of mistrust with this though thanks to companies like Dupont and Monsanto's, using lies and corruption to push their poisons.

    No fat? Fat is an essential nutrient. We're supposed to trust food that lacks natural essential nutrients that are found in real food?

    Thanks, no thanks.

      Adding fat is the next step. This isn't a ready product and they are working on it. The point was, it can be made to be very lean.

      BTW, would you eat rabbit if you were lost in the woods?

      There's an issue called "rabbit starvation" (aka "protein poisoning") for people in a survival situation that live exclusively off rabbit because rabbit meat doesn't have enough fat. So, it isn't like humans don't already eat meat without fat.

        Point taken. Yet I am reluctant to eat "manmade" meat. I just don't trust it. Things on this planet keep going from bad to worse and it's because humans continue to think they can outsmart nature. I'd much rather see research and developments in how we can restore the earth to health and live healthily on it ourselves again. Something always seems to go wrong when we try to outsmart nature.

        Well, I am a picky eater, and I actually LIKE rabbit meat, so it ISN'T bland. Of course, I like rabbits too, and I ate hassen pfeffer(Peppered hare) at a German restaurant. You know, like a kind of dark, albeit nice restaurant. When I looked down one day, I saw the hare looking back, and just haven't had it since. Somehow, I don't feel QUITE the same about a cow or fish though. It WAS funny though, because I always knew it was from a rabbit(or hare if you would rather).

          I definitely would not eat that at all. Man, that just sounds horrible.
