Food grown in a lab.
Lately it seems scientists have been hard at work circumventing God’s creative processes. Cloning animals and plants in their entirety as well as choice cuts of meats produced for eating in their labs.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) will be overseeing the collection, development, labelling, distribution and public consumption of the new “Stem Cell” meat production.

So this is my understanding of the process, the stem cells are harvested from the desired area of the animal they want to recreate. For example, scientists do not want to have to grow a whole chicken just to be able to eat the legs, so they would harvest the stem cells from a particular area of that animal.
What Are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are specialized cells contained within multicellular living beings and they house the ability to develop into several different types of cells, thereby creating the required tissue.
There Are Two Types of Stem Cell;
The first type of stem cells come from fully developed tissues. For example, brain and skin cells can only yield stem cells that develop into brain and skin tissue and so on. The specific tissues are apparently only able to yield a limited number of these specified cells.
The second type of stem cells are the induced pluripotent stem cells. These adult stem cells are altered in a laboratory setting to assume the characteristics of embryonic stem cells.
Embryonic stems cells are the master programmers that differentiates into any and all types of tissues needed for the development of multicellular living beings.
When you stop to consider the creative process, you realise that, God is truly magnificent!
Science first reported that human stem cells could be differentiated this way back in 2006. Although no clinical differences are currently understood as to why induced in pluripotent stem cells versus embryonic stem cells. Man has not yet found stem cells that can develop into pluripotent stem cells.
The Process of Growing The Cells Into Meat.
The stem cell are then placed in a Petri dish. They are then fed with micro and macronutrients in a liquid solution and grows into the specified portion of the animal that is needed according to the stem cells used.
At the conclusion of growth, the meat is then packaged, labelled and finally consumed.
I would not knowingly ingest manufactured meat, I prefer not to prepare it for my family.
It actually makes me nauseous thinking about eating manufactured meat, in my mind I equate it similar to ingesting cancerous cells which have no ceiling cap for growth, as long as they remain fed with or without a host.
The video above depicts the way our children may be eating in the future.
I only plan to partake of any meats in the manner that God intended, an animal with a life force and metabolic processes according to His divine knowledge.
What do you think of this new wave for food production? Would you feel comfortable eating this? Would you prepare it for your family?
Is this the next logical step to feed the world’s growing populace?
As always, take care, Happy Holidays and God bless!!
