Meat grown in a lab: would you eat it? Is it insane to ask if it is paleo?

Would anyone else eat meat if it were grown in a lab?

Here is an article on Yahoo news detailing the subject: http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20110130/sc_nm/us_food_meat_laboratory_feature_1

"'I believe we can do it without genes. But there is no evidence that if you add genes the quality of food will somehow suffer. Genetically modified food is already normal practice and nobody dies.' Dr. Mironov has taken myoblasts -- embryonic cells that develop into muscle tissue -- from turkey and bathed them in a nutrient bath of bovine serum on a scaffold made of chitosan (a common polymer found in nature) to grow animal skeletal muscle tissue. But how do you get that juicy, meaty quality...?"

TO me the real question would it be worse or better than the current CAFO meat. I would have to know more about the meat and how it was grown, but if it didn't have hormones, pesticides, etc in it, and there was nothing worse in it, I might consider it. But I'd be suspicious and give it a really hard look first. I won't go so far as to say I would eat it, but I would be willing to consider the concept of eating it. If I ate it would also depend on factors like the current cost and availability of other kinds of meat.

Sounds about as safe as saturated fat made in a lab.

Nope, not a chacne.

Maybe after other people eat it for a lot of years and real 3rd party scientiest do test on the stuff, and there is no other source of food around.

Genetically modified food has already been linked to health problems, especially ADHD and ADD.

The same time that GMO was allowed and used there was a huge surge kids with ADHD and ADD at birth and childhood ect.

You have to dig her but there's plenty of stuff against GMO. I think it's complete crap.

Monsanto the most unethical company in the world is behind all the GMO in the USA. They can't be trusted look at what they did to legit farmers. They sued them because GMO crops were found on their property that were blown in the wind and they had no control over it. They were able to be sued because monsanto has patents on GMO stuff. Crops that have their own DNA.

This is like really deep stuff, read about it. And what's scary is how there are ex monsanto people in the FDA. Corruption to the max....
