Who thinks this just might be a really bad idea…

With all the uproar over genetically manipulated seeds, this little piece went unnoticed.

I don’t know about others, but I can see all kinds of horrors coming out of this.  It just brings to mind the movie Soylent Green for me.

    I don’t know that I’d compare yogurt and wine with growing lab-meat, nor the innovation of the iPhone, the way this article so blithely does.

    It’s a trust issue, too. I personally am not okay with genetically-modified food despite their claim that “genetically modified food is already normal practice and nobody dies.” But I am also not okay with the way so many animals are treated to feed us, modified or not. If we can’t get back to a more humane way of housing, feeding and taking care of our cows, chickens, pigs and so forth, is lab-grown meat the eventual answer? Is it even possible to have it be an organic process? Considering we get high-fructose corn syrup in croutons…
