Imagine that we can all have our steaks, hamburgers and chops without having to kill any animals?
That is quite possible.
In the future we will grow our meat in factories in the animal equivalent of hydroponics. We will take some animals muscle cells and culture them so that they grow into steaks.
The problem at the moment is that we can’t get the flavour or texture right. But we will.
Think of the benefits once we’ve cracked how to do it:
It will be cheap.
There will be no disease or parasites to catch.
It will not take up so much room as a farm or ranch.
It won’t be so polluting. No farting cows or transporting animals from farm to abattoir to butchers to warehouse to shops.
But best of all it will not involve any cruelty or pain. There won’t be terrified animals being trucked long distances to be electrocuted, have their throats cut or shot with a stun gun.
So I’m all in favour of it. The sooner they solve how to get it right the better.
We will be able to eat meat guilt free. There will be lots of redundant land that we can return to nature and encourage nearly extinct species to recover their numbers. We will have lots of cheap tasty protein that can feed our malnourished.
So roll on the era of clean meat!! I can’t wait!!
