A friend posted a video on facebook labeled 'supermeat' recently that sparked a debate among people he knew. Apparently, cultured meat is being brought to market. I almost put this in the food forum, but decided that it might be better under this category. I suppose that depending on what question you choose to ask, it might be a good solution. For some people at least.

I could see how people with an ethical distaste for killing animals, it certainly lets them enjoy meat guilt-free. Honestly though, I suspect it's the factory answer to factory farming. If faced with the option of sub-par* meat that comes from the unpleasant nature of factory farms, or the potentially sub-par* meat we are likely to get from cultured meats, I could see a good reason for the cultured. I don't think it is right for me, but still.

Since the world doesn't yet have sustainable, ethical meat as the standard, it might serve as a bridge. My fear would be that this would just be used as and excuse to never move towards polycultures and other methods that provide ethical options /and/ higher quality products. What are other people's thoughts on this?

* Note: By subpar, I don't mean flavor. I mean that nutritionally, meats in these conditions are least healthful and wholesome when compared to a sustainably raised animal raised in a polyculture.
When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
