I have a suspicion that I will be writing about this in the future in more depth but for now I must ask a simple question:
If we possess the ability to create healthy foods, that look, feel and taste the same as traditional animal foods, while providing the same or greater nutrition, with the same or lesser risks, without slaughtering animals, why do we choose slaughter?
To clarify, I am NOT talking about plant based “meat”. While that can be an option for many who do not want to consume animal products, I am talking about creating actual meat, in a laboratory, that is indistinguishable from the meat taken from the dead body of a once living thing, a being.
Surely there was a time that mankind had no option but to slaughter animals for food, however that time has passed. We now possess the ability to create these foods without harvesting and slaughtering animals. It seems criminally insane (way it’s been) to continue slaughter when slaughter is clearly not necessary.
