Shmeat

Yes you read that headline right. My friend Craig just sent me this article on genetically engineered meat that is being promoted by PETA as a safe sane alternative to factory farming.

One would be hard put not to ask the question of PETA why not eliminate factory farming instead of inventing a whole new fake way of making meat?

Here's the article

Farm animals and people depend on each other. Farm animals can't live in the wild.
Responsible farming of animals is not the problem the problem is CAFO's, mass produced tortured, antibiotic filled "product" meat. To replace one kind of artifical process with another doesn't really make sense. I for one don't believe there is anything wrong with the humane raising of animals for food and think it is preferable to meat that is raised in a lab?

The message is clear: factory farming of animals is wrong and ultimately costs more and is so detrimental to our health and the health of the planet that we have to act now to change the way we feed ourselves, and that may mean eating less meat until we can figure out how to get rid of factory farmed meat altogether.
