Did you know that animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of all greenhouse gases? One of the best things you can do for the environment is to stop eating meat.
But what if you cannot? After all, meat is pretty tasty and provides humans with essential nutrients.
Luckily, now people can enjoy all the benefits of delicious nutritious meat without the ecological footprint or animal cruelty. How? Through the consumption of synthetic meat.
Numerous companies around the world, such as Upside in the US, and Future Meat in Israel have been engineering lab-grown, cultivated meat that can feed the masses without harming the environment or any animals. For the first time, they’ll be able to say “no animals were harmed in the making of this meat product.”
How does it work? Small clumps of animal cells are cultivated in large industrial-grade vats over a period of weeks. Over time, these clumps of cells grow into real meat.
How did researchers conceive of this method? What role do animals play in this process? Where do researchers get the animal cells? How safe is the lab-grown meat to consume? What does the future hold for lab-grown meat? This video answers all these questions.
