    Meat from still alive animals

    If you think holograms of the deceased is creepy, what about this?

    They're not exactly hacking lumps off them and keeping them alive! It's cultured cells grown in a lab.

    Might work in the long run.

    An excellent scientific solution to remediate the meat-intense consumer culture, while constraining the environmental impacts that the agroindustry has both locally and globally.

    One of these California companies are part of a project we're working on with UCal Davis and their ideas and research facilities are superb!

    My, I thought when I read the title it was going to be some barbaric practice of removing parts of the animal whilst it was still alive, phew

    I'm a vegetarian so maybe a wee bit of biased but this is definitely the future.

    From a sustainability point of view I think this is certainly the way to go if we want to feed the population with a diet based on meat.

    Even if it does taste the exact same, it will probably get to the point where "real" meat becomes/becomes marketed as an exclusive novelty and drives it's price right up which will only increase the consumption of the "fake" alternative.
