Cell-Culture Cusine

 

 

 

 

 

 

PETA wants someone to synthesize your sirloin and manufacture your mutton. In celebration of Earth Day, the “Animal Rights” advocacy group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is offering a million-dollar prize for the first people to produce and market manufactured meat from the lab.

There was a meeting of meat-minded scientists in Norway recently, chewing over ideas about in-vitro veal and cheeseburger cell culture, and this concept has tech-sector advocates. PETA thinks tenderloin technology would usher in a new Eden where animal slaughter would cease. Others are concerned that a quarter of the world’s land surface is used to raise meat or meat-feed, and residues from both pollute our waters and atmosphere.

In a world where the EU resists cloned veggies and animal products as “frankenfood,” PETA really should offer another million bucks for anyone who figures out how to market manmade meat.
