|Meat-like products created without animals. Allegedly good for the environment, and certainly for the investor's pockets. You can probably add vaccines to them too.|
Cultured meat is a meat produced by in vitro cell cultures of animal cells. It is a form of cellular agriculture. Bill Gates has a huge investment in companies selling products based on these technologies, which might explain the constant pushing of it by corporate media. Synthetic meat is allegedly good for the environment.
Bill Gates has called for policies requiring people in rich countries to eat “100 percent synthetic beef”. Saying "eventually, that green premium is modest enough that you can sort of change the [behavior of] people or use regulation to totally shift the demand”, he added “you can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time.
He also happens to also have significant investments in these technologies, owning shares in range of ‘synthetic meat’ startups including Impossible Foods, Beyond Meat, Memphis Meats and Hampton Creek Food. He made the comments in an interview promoting his 2021 book ‘How to Avoid a Climate Disaster’.
