Can fake chicken feed the world?Can fake chicken feed the world?

(1:27) With growing global demand for meat and its heavy environmental impact, finger lickin' fake chicken may be better than the real thing. Dr Fu-Hung Hsieh and researchers at the University of Missouri have been working for over a decade on perfecting fake chicken.

Humans evolved to have meat as our main food source. Faking meat is dangerous and will only add to the diseases we already have from overeating on unnecessary carbohydrates ....Vegetarianism too is equivalent to child abuse when forced upon a developing child and should never be promoted as a 'healthy' option until they are old enough to make that uninformed decision that eating only veg is better for you.

What a lot of shit. I take it you have just decided that this is the truth rather than actually read up on it. Eating meat is dangerous due to factory farming, chemicals used, unnatural conditions, etc. Look at the various food outbreaks - they are all animal related. Meat also clogs up the digestive system because we are designed to eat plant matter, not meat. Raising a child on a meat diet is child abuse, not vice versa.

I assume because of your insult you must be a vegetarian... If you actually paid attention to my comment at no stage did I mention meat from factory farming, or animals that have been injected with growth hormones and the like. I wholeheartedly agree that factory farming is dangerous which is why I only eat meat from sources where I can track the full supply chain... Also, I have read considerable amounts of science on the subject and know a great deal about the delusion of vegetarianism.

There will always be the die hard meat eaters who won't contemplate anything other than the 'big juicy steak' kind of meal. I used to work with some of them, and we tried an experiment after they had said categorically that they could never go veggie or even try vegetarian food . We gave them just a slab of meat on their plates while the rest of us (who, I like to think, were a little more flexible, mentally) got a plate full of interestingly prepared/cooked vegetables and some meat substitutes. The general uproar went along the lines of "Where are our veggies?" and "Where's the rest of our meal?". We pointed out that they didn't even want to try a vegetarian option and that vegetables were the biggest part of most meals, so they got their choice. A lesson learned by the willfully obstinate that day.

As the cost of meat goes up, maybe they'll change. I'm a closet vegetarian; I love my meat but would prefer not to. If we can reproduce various cuts so it is indistinguishable, then I'd go easily!

Not the best advert... but if we could replace meat with fake products effectively, count me in! As an experiment I've tried some Quorn and soya meats, the latter was definitely soya but was fairly close, but some of the Quorn products were actually really convincing (and low calorie for dieters out there). Nothing out there is ready to convert me yet, but I'm pretty confident we'll get there. We're taking up more room on this planet, and as we do, so does our food! We'll get there I'm sure! Providing of course this guy get a better PR company, that did look like chicken, but not as we'd expect to see it!

Given that I'm currently faced with the possibility of needing to slaughter one of my own back garden chickens, something I never imagined I would ever have to do... I have to be optimistic... :-/

1952 Pohl and Kornbluth "The Space Merchants" predicted machine-produced chicken ("Chicken Little"). Also predicted governments run by corporations - nearly there!
