Would you eat a piece of synthetic meat?

Yeah, why not?

Eeeewww, no...

As a vegetarian, I can't wait for synthetic meat to come to market. I love the taste of meat, but won't eat it because of how inhumane factory farming is. Once synthetic meat becomes a viable alternative, I will finally be able to eat a burger with some real flavor.

Side: Yeah, why not?

Well, if you hate factory farming, what about hunting? I can understand your side, I also hate the way some meat is created. That's why I hunt most of my meat. Saves me a lot of money too!

Side: Yeah, why not?

I personally can't justify killing something that feels pain and fear when there are plenty of other things to eat. If I had to eat meat in order to survive then I might reconsider my viewpoint, but to kill something that feels fear and pain just because it tastes good just doesn't feel right to me. However, I definitely have a much greater respect for people who hunt their food instead of just buying it all in the supermarket.

I'm assuming that by being synthetic, it's automatically "halal", so I'm up for it.

But, would you eat it if it said, "Human flavor" on the wrapper of the synthetic meat? Mmmm...there's something nasty to think about.

Side: Yeah, why not?

Yeah why not it is a sustainable way of getting the protein whilst taking up less space than cattle and other farm animals. Also it takes away the moral issues many people have with the fact that animals are killed, so i can't see an argument against synthetic meat.

Side: Yeah, why not?

If you were to flog this product, you would give a whole new meaning to the phrase..., wait for it..., beating your meat ;)

Side: Yeah, why not?

Synthetic means man made, don't be a green party member and pretend that synthetic means radioactive or toxic.

Side: Yeah, why not?

As long as it is nutritious and palatable, I see no reason not to.

Side: Yeah, why not?

Here's a video with more info on lab grown meat. It talks about the process, and explains that lab grown meat is healthier and can be customized to people's tastes.

How is it any more disgusting than real meat? Soya mince is very much like meat- and it's healthier.

Side: Yeah, why not?

No. Most of the meat I eat I hunt. I don't eat beef. If I didn't see it die from my bullet and I butchered it, I'm not to keen on the idea.

Side: Eeeewww, no...

Oh sure why not just take all the nutrients out of my diet. I'd rather stick to the natural stuff. In America we take out to many nutrients for cheaper by-products just to make more money.
