QUOTE
Cultured meat, produced in bioreactors without the slaughter of an animal, has been approved for sale by a regulatory authority for the first time. The development has been hailed as a landmark moment across the meat industry.

The “chicken bites”, produced by the US company Eat Just, have passed a safety review by the Singapore Food Agency and the approval could open the door to a future when all meat is produced without the killing of livestock, the company said.


So a technology that had a cost of over $350K per burger in 2013, is now a commercially viable and safe process that means lab-grown meat could be on the shelves by 2022. It's the future! But would you eat it ?

I'll let someone else eat it first..

I'm just gonna stick with plant based alternatives. I do think it's an incredible breakthrough and if it takes off it could seriously dent the need for meat in the future.

i've been considering going vegan or at least switching to an "alternative" to meat so this looks promising! it'd require a big lifestyle change for me tho, and anyway I don't think this'll be as accessible as actual meat anytime soon

Good. Too much of Earth's biomass is tied up in animals we're preparing to eat, as soon as this becomes widely available I'd try to eat it wherever possible.

Sounds good, I would definitely try it! It could be great for the environment if it reduced the need for so much livestock farming which takes up large amounts of agricultural space.

A good step! I eat vegetarian about 90% of the time now but I've always thought the idea of lab-grown meat was a good one, glad it seems to be becoming possible faster than I expected.

I would be willing to try if it was proved safe. It would be good to to have a safe, really realistic, alternative to meat that doesn't involve the killing of animals.
