But it will eventually be cheaper and safer than the stuff we buy today.
    Gross...chicken cells and tofu is what I picture. I hope this happens after I am gone. I am sure the texture will be nasty as well. I would rather starve.

    Are you saying that Okja and the other super-pigs have no feelings?

    Ask someone who's actually starving.

    Chicken consists of chicken cells, whether they're cultivated in a live bird, or in a vat. And initially, the texture WILL be nasty. However, there is massive financial incentive to be the first company to sell lab-grown chicken meat that's indistinguishable from bird-chicken meat.

    But yeah, I'm on board with you on tofu. Tofu is disgusting.
