Can We 3-D Print a Steak?

July 21, 2022

Update on Lab-produced meat.
Progress ongoing. Could be a while.

Below, reminder – Land use map of the US shows the acreage currently going into cattle production.

    Solar farms should be added as they increase in coverage, but I don’t know how they’d calculate dual-use acreage, as with solar-covered canals or highways or sheep pasture.

    So, we are supposed to make valid scientific decisions based on a clearly deceptive map created by a magazine journalist?

    The hyperbole of the anti-meat brigade knows no bounds.

      Once you get rid of the inhumane conditions of feed lots and slaughterhouses (or factory farms for pigs), the excess food crops being given over to livestock, and the grazing in marginal areas, most of the objection to meat-eating goes away.

      Dietetically we should reduce meat portion sizes that Americans and restaurants usually serve and increase the vegetables.

      Any objection to that?

    Eat less meat. Use it for flavoring or smaller servings. Only eat grass fed and lobby for more humane treatment You will be healthier, lose weight and have less dental problems.

      There is zero evidence that normal meat intake in the US is not part of a healthy diet. There is zero evidence that eating less meat is healthier for you or will help you lose weight; the opposite is true. Eating less meat means increasing one’s sugars and carbohydrates which is worse for your teeth.

      All US beef is grass-fed. Grass-finished beef produces more GHG emissions than feed-finished beef.

      IOW, every darned thing you said is unsupported or downright false.

        Eat more meat so you don’t have to brush your teeth as often?

        High-roughage diets are good for the digestive system. Instead of ordering Beef with Broccoli, order Broccoli with Beef. (E.g., we’d order Beef with Broccoli and Buddha’s Delight to have the right ratio of meat to veg.)

        Get some crunch with your vegetables, too: An apple or a big carrot a day makes for dentist-noticeable improvement in gum health.
