    The technology of artificially made meat is fast developing. Will you eat them once they became vastly available in the market?

    There are plenty available, the question is... how healthy are they to eat. Maybe with time, I don't mind if the taste is there. I mean everything tastes like chicken anyways. But again, so far, looking at their ingredients, one has to question. (and this is coming from someone who tries a bunch of replacement products)

    Yes.
    Even if it's artificial, if it has the same chemical structure and (probably) texture and taste, I don't mind.

    So long as the taste (and "healthiness") is there, why not? :cookie:

    If its not too expensive and doesn't make me feel like I'm going through chemo-therapy, then sure.

    Do they taste good? Then probably, yes. For stuff like this I'm not terribly picky, as long as it tastes good and doesn't kill me upon tasting then I'm okay with it. There is also the pricing to consider.

    Depends. I'm no vegan nor am I a vegetarian so I have no qualms with eating meat as long as it's available. So, it's all about the price and quality of the artificial stuff

    I’m looking forward to it, especially if that means animals won’t be reared and killed as much.
    And in my unprofessional opinion, it sounds like it could reduce the costs of agriculture in terms of water and land for livestock feed and methane emmisions

    These corn based meat and other false meat for vegetarian diets? Why not. It's better for the ecology and tastes like meat, seems good to me.

    Between dying and eating anything but alive, then I'll definitely eat whatever. But if it's between eating artificial meat/food and original meat/real food, then I definitely wouldn't opt for the former unless there is a significant reason to do so. I've always wanted to live somewhere like a homestead and ALONE. In the long run, I don't think artificial anything would be sustainable for that kind of life.

    Honestly I would rather get an injection or take a pill and not need to eat anymore. I love food and cooking but I'd get so much more done if I didn't have to worry about it.

    Yes because it depends on what kind of meat, if it is healthy, and if it is something that i would love to eat. As a glutton, i can eat eat anything as long as it is yummy uwuuuuuu

    Regardless of the current evolution, natural food won`t be available for long, in the next 20-30 years maybe it will be unimaginable to eat natural food, since we, humans, are good are destroying our own habitat.

    Like it or not is better to try and like it, because in the future that is probably the only cheap source of meat. Maybe we can get meat from real animals but must pay with exorbitant price, something like equal to 1 or 2 of your annual income

    You can diagnose an animal before butchering it to know if it's okay to eat. I don't think that's possible with artificial meat. Also since it was made in a lab, there is always the possibility of someone messing with it. You can't exactly mess with natural meat too easily/covertly, the animal would show signs of it while alive. Lab grown meat is essentially dead from the start, so plenty of opportunities to mess the formula.

    No. Ai-chan is greatly exasperated by all these artificial foods. We have food. We have real food. Instead of spending money to research fake meat, spend money to research how to reduce the environment impact or to increase production of real food.

    A lot of our modern illnesses were caused by artificial sustenance. Refined sugar, petroleum-based sweeteners, artificial flavouring, artificial colouring, genetically modified maize, synthetic cooking oil, synthetic vitamins. All these are the cause of a lot of modern illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and the like. We have evolved to think that consuming fake things is normal, but it's not.

    Eat real, natural food. If you want to eat vegetarian food, then eat tofu and vegetables, don't eat tofu injected with artificial flavours so that you can imagine yourself eating sin-free meat. But that thing that makes the tofu taste like beef is chemicals. You're willingly eating chemicals. There's nothing natural about these flavours, you're eating synthetic chemicals.

    And people in the west wonder why Japanese people have the highest life expectancy.
