In 1931, Winston Churchill declared: "We shall escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing, by growing these parts separately under suitable medium." What suitable medium is that?! Beyond chicken, can the tissues of cow, pig, and fish really be grown in the laboratory? These are questions being tackled by scientists at companies in the US and abroad. Further: How do these cultured meats taste, and how much do they cost? Alongside the enormous animal welfare issue, does in vitro meat have health implications for humans AND for the planet at large?
Our two speakers are scientists from Bay Area "clean meat" organizations. Dr. Nicholas Legendre is Interim Chief Science Officer at New Age Meats. Robert Yaman, formerly of Kiran Meats, is a writer at robertyaman.com.
