Test Tube Burger On Someone’s Menu


A hamburger made from test tube-grown “beef” is on someone’s menu for this week.

The so-called beef for the burger is the product of a Dutch professor whose work was financed by an anonymous businessman and the Dutch government. It was created from stem cells stripped from a cow’s muscle that were incubated in a nutrient broth, stretched on a machine to simulate exercise and stimulate growth, then minced with lab-grown animal fat. The final, uncooked product is said to be gray with a slippery texture similar to squid or scallop. The financier may be the first to eat the lab-created slime.

The developer’s goal is to create alternatives to cattle that consume “70 percent of agricultural capacity,” according to Professor Mark Post, and that will be less expensive. Scientists say it’s possible this slime product will be sold to the public in 10 years.

The proper healthy alternative, of course, is to consume less beef and if you must eat beef then to eat only free range beef that isn’t fed or injected with steroids, hormones and antibiotics. The proper alternative is to consume very little meat and to eat only organically grown poultry or fish that is not fed or injected with steroids, hormones and antibiotics. Focus instead on whole, fresh vegetables, as much raw as possible.

This alternative is also the best way to avoid Obamacare. But at all costs, avoid and reject lab-created so-called “foods.”

    I don’t eat much cow…but when I do, I prefer that it comes from a real honest to goodness…”Bovine”.

    I would think it has got to be cheaper to simply grow and slaughter cattle.
    It is bad enough that we have to worry about what the cattle are fed and what kind of chemicals are used to treat the beef. Now we have to wonder if it actually is beef.

    I hope people see where this is going.
    Absolutely revolting.

    I never thought it would happen but I believe we are about to enter the SOILENT GREEN STAGE.! If you were to young to see this movie with Charleston Heston, It showed the world in disorder and descovered we were buying and eating the meat of DEAD BODIES that was being produced,packed and shipped from a factory. Is this going to lead from Stem cells from dead humans instead of beef? GOD HELP US! Maybe now the people will wake up and realize there is a GOD in Heaven and he is the only one who can save you ! WAKE UP!
