Lab-grown meat has to be one of the creepiest and most unappetizing things I’ve ever heard of. It amazes me that the left – former all-natural hippies – want to pump their bodies full of so much laboratory and big pharma garbage these days. “Hey, after you finish taking your 17th booster shot, sit down and eat this cheese burger we grew in a Petri dish.” For some odd reason, the idea of injecting and eating cells and other assorted toxins really excites liberals.
And while some of us may laugh this off and think the idea of eating only “lab-meat” is another leftist pipe dream – be warned – many experts believe that in about 20 years, lab-meat will be the only “meat” available to eat.
Granted, 20 years seems a bit lofty of a goal, even for evil globalists, but I do agree that they will do away with meat if we don’t take this seriously and stop them. And after you hear what’s actually in this “lab-grown meat” I think you’ll understand why it’s critical that we push back on this abomination.
There’s a very interesting Substack written on this topic. It’s written by math wizard and businessman Igor Chudov, and he explains how this creeptacular lab-meat is actually made from cancer cells.
The CNBC article explains that “lab-grown meat,” that is, cell cultures grown in giant stainless vats, is not the same as “fake meat” made of soy or pea protein:
Vegetarians have long touted the ethical and environmental problems with meat production and consumption. Start-ups such as MosaMeat, JUST and Memphis Meats are tissue-engineering meat in a lab to allow people to enjoy being a carnivore without any of the environmental or ethical hang-ups.
Dubbed clean meat, the efforts are distinct from “fake meat,” like the soy protein “chicken” you can find in your grocery store today. Unlike Morningstar or Boca Burgers, clean meat really is meat; it just grows in a lab instead of being part of an animal.
Okay, but what kinds of cells is that lab meat grown from?
And here’s where it starts getting knee-deep into “Frankenstein” territory, folks…
Lab-Grown “Meat” is Made of “Immortalized” Cancer Cells
This excellent Bloomberg article (paywall-free link) clarifies that all lab meat is grown as immortalized tumor cells. As the article explains, these same cells are used to produce traditional vaccines.
Thank the biotech revolution. Under the right conditions, animal cells can be grown in a petri dish, or even at scale in factories full of stainless-steel drums. For decades, companies such as Pfizer Inc. and Johnson & Johnson have cultured large volumes of cells to produce vaccines, monoclonal antibodies and other biotherapeutics. Now the idea is that we might as well eat these cells, too.
What are these cells?
The big honking asterisk is that normal meat cells don’t just keep dividing forever. To get the cell cultures to grow at rates big enough to power a business, several companies, including the Big Three, are quietly using what are called immortalized cells, something most people have never eaten intentionally. Immortalized cells are a staple of medical research, but they are, technically speaking, precancerous and can be, in some cases, fully cancerous.
The article puts a “human face” on some of these cell lines, for example, the “HeLa line” made from the cervical cancer of Henrietta Lacks:
That’s where immortalized cells come in. They’ve been used in medical research since the early 1950s, when the first and most famous immortal cell line—derived from the cervical cancer cells of a woman named Henrietta Lacks—was successfully grown in a lab.
This is just a small sample of what Igor has to say. You MUST read about how these cells are going to react and mutate inside of your body over time.
Lab meat companies really are planning to sell us tumor cells to eat… Read the full article here.
