Culture-grown meat has none of those problems because it is meat grown without raising or slaughtering animals. It is grown in a way that is similar to how tissue develops in an animal, except that cultured meat begins with a small collection of animal cells that are grown in a nutrient-rich environment outside the animal.
What this means is no raising, housing, feeding or slaughtering of animals. And that ultimately means preserving precious resources such as water, land, electricity and time. See the chart below for the staggering numbers.
Cultured meat has the same nutritional value and composition as animal-based meat. It is, in fact, meat. Though in contrast to traditional meat, our cultured meat is grown without the use of antibiotics or growth hormones; and without animal suffering and slaughter. And it doesn’t cause environmental damage.
Easing our reliance on animals in the food system will have wide-reaching benefits including a massive reduction to a very large ecological footprint. Now is the time to support this change. We can’t waste another minute.
