Comments on Beaker Burgers From In Vitro Meat
All around the world, scientists are racing to be the first to produce meat in a vat. No waste materials to be cut away. Just the burger - in a beaker. (Read the complete story)

"Forget In Vitro meat. Two words for you, Soylent Green."

"Well, there's very little waste in most processing plants now as it is. The best cuts go to fine resturants and grocers. The next step is creating a slurrey. It's freaking amazing what can be made from a slurrey. So it's not going to matter what artificial meat is called. As for soylent green, well, I don't expect to be around for that delicacy."

"Just thought about it... By the time Soylent Green happens, I'll BE that delicacy. Bon Appitit! :-)"

"Just imagine the muscle born viruses that might evolve and infect humans if this industry ramps up into world scale production."
(Zac Hunter 8/3/2009 11:17:00 AM)
"This has the potential to be far more environmentally friendly and efficient than current meat production; currently around 40-50% of grain produced worldwide is used to feed animals which then go on to feed humans. Bit of a waste, isn't it ? Clearly, lab grown meat is more ethical than battery farmed chickens and suchlike. And it has the potential to be much safer (reduced risk of avian or swine flu) and healthier too, as unhealthy fats could be eliminated and replaced with the fatty acids found in fish."
