I for one think that this is a terrific idea that should be supported by NZ. If we were smart enough we could lead the world in growing meat in the lab as we do on the farm today, we could develop the technologies and then sell them to the rest of the world. We could even lab 'farm' extinct Moa for that really traditional fare. I don't think our sheep, beef and pig farmers should be too worried just yet but in 10 to 20 years who knows what might happen.

Nah, it dosen't do it for me... I like my steak rare. How would they get the blood into the meat? Or more importantly, what synthetic blood product would they use instead???
Hmmm baby back ribs!!!

You could always use your own blood? When you donate, get them to put a bit aside for you to add to your meat.

From vegetarians point of view..
i know the reason i dont eat meat is because of the whole 'killing animals is wrong' thing
but even not eating it for so long the thought of biting into a huge steak just makes me feel sick in the stomach. and even the thought of eating synthetic meat makes me feel a little queasy..
what would it be made out of?
pig meat still? except it has just been steroided up and full of bacteria?
sounds a bit weird
