Labeled as ‘cultured meat’ by scientists, new meat grown in
laboratory Petri dishes utilizing animal stem cells may soon be
coming to a grocery store near you - and perhaps even your dinner
animal stem cells used to make cultured meat
Fed a concoction of sugars, amino
acids, lipids, minerals and all other nutrients necessary for the
stem cells to grow, the cells begin the transformation into
full-fledged Petri dish meat.
Post plans to combine 3,000 of these strips and add lab-grown fat in order to create his hamburger.
At the moment, the meat is also quite unpleasing to the taste buds.
As Post continues to tweak the lab-grown meat, he plans to utilize
lab-grown fat to enhance flavor.

Meat Glue is an interesting - if not repulsive - creature.
While not a registered product of Mary Shelley, royalties may be due. You might have never thought of resurrecting a hamburger back into steak, but somebody else has, and Activa (transglutaminase) is the enzymatic force of galvanism behind the ritual.
Forming covalent bonds between scraps of
food, they are so effectively fused together that even professional
chefs and gastronomes are typically unable to distinguish veritable
sausage from filet mignon once reanimated by this strange product.
Activa is not
limited to meat products. And with USDA and culinary SWAT teams
raiding local sources of independent and honest food production,
austerity measures seem destined for our pantries too. Local food
production is the answer, but it’s not without formidable
Children feed upon McWaste under duress, while organic farmers are terrorized by government and their corporate pillars. The sources of hassle might as well wear neon badges, as they are perceptibly merging into a single unified disease.
Can’t we see?
Activa is but one of many legitimate concerns regarding the integrity of our food; and there are doubtlessly more serious issues to confront as well. The imperative matter is that of transparency and choice, and our current government has proven a treacherous and pitiful ally in this bizarre struggle. We have a right to know what we eat, and no one has the right to intentionally deceive us.
With help from the FDA,
deception has been made the divine right of corporations. It has
been left up to us to preserve our rights, even though it may entail
litigation and assault. Well-established and firmly planted
institutions have declared us inept and unfit to maintain our own
Now ask yourself:
Using Occam’s Razor, we can only deduce that such efforts are not made if no effect is achieved. It’s an example of a flagrant lie by the FDA, arrogantly displayed before our entire nation.
And guess who helps fortify such lies? Fox.
We’re surrounded by slime.
Yes, everywhere you look or go, there may be
slime of the lowest order, and an honest journalist suffocating
Do something! Discuss these subjects with friends and strangers alike.
Let us take control of at least our own forms, tables, and yards, and build our infrastructure from the ground up - rather than upside down with corporate scumtards at the top, and withering frail masses at the base. In one way we are facing a great monster. In another way, we are finally facing ourselves and our fellow people.
Redirect their filthy greed and hostility into a blooming garden of wholesomeness.
We can do it!
When layers of meat are “glued” to other multiples layers, the natural seal of non frankenmeat is lost, and new openings for bacteria are created. This danger was expressed in the first video.
Perhaps related, is the FDA’s approval of spraying
viruses on meat to combat
Note that the FDA has never openly confronted the horrid conditions of slaughterhouses and processing facilities. They are quick to address a symptom of rot, but cower before the cause.
The exceedingly cruel conditions of slaughterhouses alone are sufficient to warrant a full-scale rejection of what the FDA piously protects.
And that is merely one of many hideous
aspects of industrial practices sponsored by our
