I would be fascinated to learn how did he made the raw material for this meat. He is mentionning soft muscle tissue... well if you need real muscle what's the point. If not real muscle what is the starting cell ? some of those baby cell that can grow in anything ? Then from what are those cell feeding to develop...

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
