Personally, I feel a little bit sick to my stomach about this. However, I don't know exactly WHY I feel this way... Either it's the thought of actually consuming an alien like, non grain fed meat product, or simply the thought of consuming something that man has conquered due to his inherent God complex.. The concept just repulses me.. Yet I can't pinpoint a valid reason for my revulsion. What a conundrum..

People have already been adamant about their negative views about eating cloned vegetables and butchered animals for meat consumption. But now we seem to have lab grown "flesh" headed to our markets.

What say you? Would you eat this lab created "muscle"? Would you trust in it's safety enough to feed to your own children?

No, this shit is not for me. Probably loaded with CANCER. Well that is with about everything we eat. It is like you can't get good healthy foods anymore. Too many chemicals.

This is the first I've heard about this and all I can say is shewwwwie. Nope I thought you were pulling our legs and I didn't believe it til I checked on the link. I'm going to have to say YUK for now. It doesn't sound very appetizing does it. But the world is heading in a dangerous way as far as feeding people. Third world countries could benefit I suppose. Do you think they'd have to tell you it was fake meat? Thanks to Obama we already might have horse on the menu so whats a little man made meat I guess. Never mind I don't want either one of those on my hamburger burger bun.

"Leg of Lab", anyone?

Seriously, this really doesn't hit me right. I am trying really hard to figure out why it weirds me out so badly, but I just can't peg it yet..

I believe city folks will bare the brunt of having this on their tables before the country folks.Living in small towns USA will then have yet another advantage. They will still have access to critters running free range, hopefully. However saying that, this lab meat is suspose to be healthier for those that eat it. I can't help but think of tofu when I picture this and I think tofu is nasty. Just my opinion........Wonder what they will call a barbacue rib cookoff? Thanks for giving us something else to ponder about, Nope. Wonder if they can dup fish? LOL YUK

A independent farmer can't produce beef or crops same price as government assisted banker farmers.
Don't believe me check out this web site= http farmerEWG.net put in KY, Pulaski county program recieptents

you will see farmers even full time owners like me, receive bottom 20 percent of federal and state program money. Top ones don't even live on farm.

The consumption of meat is as texture driven as it is taste driven. It's going to be a hard sell to a farm boy used to grilling inch thick ribeyes. Almost enough so that I don't see it happening in my lifetime.

But McDonalds customers? That's hardly meat, anyway. I'd look forward to it in forms like that. And honestly, since you'd really have no need to pump it full of steroids/hormones/antibiotics, it'd probably be a lot safer than most mass produced meat.

Right? Recent stories about McD's and their discontinuing to add that "pink slime" ingredient ring any bells? Who knew that our kids were happily dining on "pink slime",(with our blessings), until just a few weeks ago.....

McDonalds "Pink Slime" link. And while you're there, check out what's in some of the other foods we eat without question:

That first burger will sure be expensive. At least if its grown in a petri dish it will already have the right shape for a hamburger patty.

What about leather for shoes and such, will we kill cattle just for the leather or can we grow that too?
