      Not sure what the politicians in question have against it, but my apprehension to lab grown meat is the possibilty of the corporations making our food even worse for us for the sake of profit. If you think our food is bad now just wait until some greedy fuck can cut corners on the molecular level.

      Also I dont understand why banning this is seen as such a negative thing in the US. A lot of European countries have already taken this step because most of those countries already have strict laws against GMO’s, glyphosate, growth hormones, and “enhanced” grains.

      Less factory farming is obviously a great thing but to what end? To me I see this as another opportunity for our replacement food to be worse for us than the original and not be realized until way later. So why not slow down the introduction of this technology until we can prove that it can be done safely.
