I have no problem dropping a deer or turkey in one of my food plots......or a rabbit or a few "bushy tails" etc....no way will I eat lab grown meat from stem cells......I will eat beans and rice for the rest of my life if I have to.....
Agree with you about eating lab grown meat from stem cells.

Just curious. Are your food plots like most around here? We usually plant and fertilize grass, supplement it with corn or apple flavored corn, and peas. We also have supplemental mineral plots that we don't hunt from. Some people go as far as using range pellets. Most of our feed and seed stores cater heavily to managed deer plots.

It's hard to find truly "organic" deer and other game around here. lol

You can say that, but we will add another billion people to the planet by 2030. By 2100, we will br approaching 12 billion inhabitants. We are not gaining anymore land.
True. But if we ate less we would incur fewer costs on our health care system and forestall what is coming regardless. It's a better world to leave to our kids. We are just stewards of Gods earth, even though we talk and act like we own it.

I mentioned on this site a few months in the health forum, I think, that my friend who is a fairly well-known nutritionist was invited to a world food conference in NYC back in, I think it was January.

Long story short, the plans they laid out for the general public and their foods in the future are chilling. Not that far off either, maybe another 10 years. And as always, the people with less money are going to suffer the most.

This stem cell meat concoction may be part of. I don't know. My friend did not mention the stem cell food plan to me.
So I do not think they mentioned it at this conference, but I am not sure.

I am going to ask him next time I speak to him.

The bottom line for me, even if I ate meat and this stem cell meat was cheap, and I felt I was helping the planet, I still would not touch it for the first 10 to 15 years. I would want to see studies on how it may be possibly adversely affecting people. I may be Italian, but I am no guinea pig.

I usually have a freezer full of deer meat. ( Legally obtained) I can't think of a healthier source of meat.

In answer to the original question, no, absolutely not.

I'm curious, in the US do you have organic and free range food to chose from?
We do in the UK. It use to be very expensive but the price gap isn't that big anymore.
I think more and more people are turning to it.
Yes, we have a choice as well. Organic does tend to be more expensive.

It's kind of frightening to think what will come of food sources in the future as the population of the planet continues to swell. I'm certainly glad I am learning how to tend a garden to produce food, because something in the back of my mind says that being able to garden will be a very useful skill - access to high quality, non-GMO, organic produce.

You're right. I'm guilty of not making the effort. I really should.

My initial reply was flippant, and I hope people understand I was joking in my own particular, sick fashion.

...even though I DO eat SPAM and such. Hey, get off my back about it!

Would I eat lab-grown meat? NO. No I would not. Although I am not any shining example of how to eat properly, I do much better than most people I know, and that is clearly evidenced every time I go grocery shopping. My cart is filled with basic ingredients and I prepare meals from scratch at home, while most others I see are piling mounds of frozen dinners and packaged/processed foods into their carts. I try to adhere to the axiom of "If I can't pronounce it, then it has no business going into my body", and I use that when I check the ingredient list on a product. If it sounds chemical, it is, and it's not good eats. Now, I don't have a lot of credibility saying these things, since I look on the scale and must peer OVER the crest of my pot belly to see the number on the scale and do the math in my head to see I am still about 70 pounds overweight, but my biggest issue is not WHAT I eat so much as it is HOW MUCH I eat, and HOW LITTLE exercise I get or get access to with my living situation. So yes, a fat little bugger like me is pontificating about eating right. Deal with it.
========================================
'WOW, you are well in your way to accepting/appreciating your 'gift of life' than so many that are not'!...

may our Precious Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, bless you and yours with His joy and peace...

I plant food plots of ladino and red clovers....keep fertilized, limed and re-seed every couple of years, keep the weeds bush hogged out and if it gets too bad will use round up and start over......ummm....feed 50 pound bags of wheat, cracked corn and corn thru winter for deer and turkey and keep a good mineral lick for deer.....

OK, let's all give our own interpretation of 'lab-grown-meat'...

(chems without respect for human life=death, and I will eat it anyway!)
or,
I just like the TASTE?)
or,
Jesus has been speaking to my heart, in a big-way,-
maybe it's time for me to start listening to Him in own special way,
by observing/obeying what He wrote upon my heart?...

Can't beat it! It's funny to me the mental block some people have regarding deer vs beef. I made chili and took extra to work one day. One man was so excited until I told him it was deer. He wouldn't even try it. Had nothing to do with taste, more cruelty in his mind how the deer was killed. The cows he eats regularly wouldn't agree with that.
