Would you eat synthetic meat? | The Tylt
It's a strange idea at first, but it has more implications than we immediately think. It's reasonable to assume that in the near future synthetic meat will be a reality. Once it is affordable, you'll be posed with a question. Will you buy and eat synthetic meat, or stick to the natural stuff?
Synthetic meat has the chemical composition of meat from animals. However, it was never alive — at least, not as part of a conscious creature.
What does this mean for people who eat kosher or halal meat? Many modern vegetarians abstain from meat for moral or environmental reasons. Synthetic meat, which is grown in sterile environments, could be grown in a more sustainable environment devoid of antibiotics.
Let's also admit that the idea of eating synthetic meat is straight up weird. Anyone that questions GMO food certainly would want to think twice before putting fake meat in their system. Fake tofu meat tastes bad enough, who needs the rubber that is going to be grown in a vat, right?
So would you eat #SyntheticMeat if it were available or would you stick with #NaturalMeat?
