It's the future, apparently, but would you eat a burger made of cells cultured and growing independently, with no brain attached, and no animal killed?

In the end it will happen and be a regular part of people's diet, but it won't stop animals being bred and raised for food, they'll just become a niche/expensive item.

I love meat, but avoid it for ethical reasons, so would rather lab-grown over animals, but in the end I think no-meat is the better solution.

I can't see anything against it really, a lot of people like the taste of meat, and if you can produce it without killing anything, and in a more environmentally friendly way, why not?

But why go to all the trouble, when it can be carved from a passing animal? If animals aren't used for meat, there'll be a lot less of them around.

And I can't imagine the husbandry standards will be any higher for lab tissues than real animals..

Why would you need to husband a lump of meat?

Virus/bacterial infection, pollution of the inputs, failure to extract the waste - was using husbandry as a catchall for growing standards, I suppose

Got something to say?
