Now when I say eat human meat, I’m not talking like Jeffrey Dahmer, or you’re crashed in the Andes, or even a story I read a few years ago of an “artist” who had their leg amputated for some reason and cooked it up for their friends. Instead, I’m talking about synthetic human meat.
Synthetic meat is where you take some cells from an animal and grow them into meat in a lab. It’s beef that was never part of a cow. A lot of work has been done with this in the last few years, and a couple months ago I saw an article saying synthetic meat would show up in grocery stores by the end of 2018. This wouldn’t be synthetic steaks, but more the crumbly bits of meat on frozen pizzas. Synthetic steaks are still a few years away.
But if you can make synthetic beef, you can make synthetic human. Would you try it though? I think if someone took some of my cells and made synthetic Steve meat, I probably wouldn’t take a Steveburger, but I would try a piece large enough to get a taste.
