Lab grown meat could potentially save billions of animal lives when it becomes cheap and ubiquitous enough to supplant traditional animal flesh. However, there are a lot of considerations about this technology, such as whether it could be considered vegetarian/vegan - a collection of starter cells would still need to be collected from an animal, probably on a semi-regular basis.

What do you think? Would you eat cultured meat?

I'm really torn between pragmatism and idealism. Because the IDEA behind it still cheapens life. It still sells animal flesh as a product. It reminds me of all the profit that has been made from the stem cells of Henrietta Lacks. But pragmatically, it would save a lot of walking, breathing animals. So I guess...I would support it for others, but for me and my family there's just no need to buy into it.
