Fresh from the press: Hello, the future is here. It is now possible to eat meat without harming one self, the animals or the environment. Too good to be true? Read on.

The founders of Memphis Meats did not like, as so many others, the negative side effects of conventional meat production: environmental degradation, a slew of health risks, and food products that contain antibiotics, fecal matter, pathogens, and other contaminants. They started Memphis Meats and created a new kind of farming, one that provides the same delicious meat we grew up with—without all the drawbacks.

Instead of farming animals, they farm the meat directly.  They combine culinary and scientific fields to farm real meat cells—without the animals—in a process that is healthier, safer, and more sustainable than conventional animal agriculture.  Memphis Meats are already growing real meat in small quantities using cells from cows, pigs, and chickens. The company’s first products—hot dogs, sausages, burgers, and meatballs—will be developed using recipes perfected over a half century by award-winning chefs. The founders expect to have products to market in less than five years.

Have a look at their website and see their video showcasing one of their products.

I have stopped eating meat as I do not want to harm further our planet and myself but this sounds like an exciting idea if done in a responsible way. What do you think of this revolutionary method?
