Lab Grown Lunacy

Father Time, undefeated as he is, is always busy, and the thanks to the walking dead’s uncanny ability to ignore being reamed up the arse continually by the absolute filth of humanity, he may have to hire assistants to keep up with the increased demand of pulling back the curtain and revealing  the vast fuckery that will be the afterlife of the apathetic’s.

FDA Clears “Chicken” Grown in a Laboratory by Medical Doctor – via healthimpactnews.com

Wow!  This will work out well…right?

Yes, boys and girls, the psychofuck’s will try to get you one way or another.  If you won’t acquiesce to their experimental chemical sludge sold as health via a needle, then how about just eating other experimental garbage labeled and approved as food?

The FDA has given a green light to laboratory-grown chicken cell lines that were developed by a medical doctor.

An unprecedented move by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration last week could change how we consume meat.

“The fact that the FDA green-lit Upside Foods’ cultivated chicken to move forward to coming to market is something that’s never happened in the history of humanity,” said Uma Valeti, CEO and co-founder of Upside Foods.

Upside Foods is a California-based company behind the first lab-grown meat to receive FDA clearance, bringing it a step closer to U.S. grocery stores and restaurants.

Valeti, a cardiologist who worked at the Mayo Clinic, says he stopped eating meat in medical school when he saw the detriment of mass meat production, but then he saw an opportunity for a slaughter-free option.

“During my work in cardiology, we were working with stem cells and injecting them into patients’ hearts to regrow the heart muscle and that’s where this idea came from – ‘can you grow meat directly from animal cells?’ And if so, what would that mean to the world?” (Full article.)

Reading the headlines and press releases on this action by the FDA, one is led to believe that the FDA has approved this lab-grown “chicken.”

But the FDA doesn’t approve foods. They monitor food safety and labeling, but they do not approve foods. They only approve drugs.

Here is the actual press release from the FDA:

FDA Completes First Pre-Market Consultation for Human Food Made Using Animal Cell Culture Technology

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) completed its first pre-market consultation for a human food made from cultured animal cells. We evaluated the information UPSIDE Foods submitted to the agency and have no further questions at this time about the firm’s safety conclusion. The firm will use animal cell culture technology to take living cells from chickens and grow the cells in a controlled environment to make the cultured animal cell food.

The FDA’s pre-market consultation with the firm included an evaluation of the firm’s production process and the cultured cell material made by the production process, including the establishment of cell lines and cell banks, manufacturing controls, and all components and inputs. The voluntary pre-market consultation is not an approval process. Instead, it means that after our careful evaluation of the data and information shared by the firm, we have no further questions at this time about the firm’s safety conclusion. (Source.)

So what does this actually mean?

In terms of how safe this product is, it means NOTHING.

This was a “voluntary,” “pre-market consultation” paid for by the company planning to market this product, so that they could use the FDA logo with their product giving the illusion that the FDA has actually approved this product, when in fact they have not.

Do we really need a lab-cultured product called “chicken” produced by a medical doctor who has no training in agriculture or nutrition? Has the FDA and the medical system given us any evidence that they are truly concerned about human health during the past couple years since COVID came out?  (rest of article here)

And if you won’t eat their latest concoction of goo, then maybe you can get your pets to eat it as CNN seems to have a problem with your pets being part of the ‘climate problem’.

Our Pets are Part of the Climate Problem. These Tips Can Help You Minimize Their Carbon Pawprints – via cnn.com

Pawprints?  And Jesus wept.

First, and most importantly — responsible owners considering making significant changes to their pet’s diet should discuss it with their veterinarian to make sure it’s right for their animal’s needs.

In fact, if you’re the proud owner of a feline, you shouldn’t even think about switching their diet. Cats are obligate carnivores — they must eat meat, according to Angela Frimberger, a veterinarian with Vets for Climate Action.

Dogs, on the other hand, are omnivores and don’t necessarily need to have meat every meal — let alone sirloin steak.

“I wholeheartedly want pets to be fed a good quality, nutritionally appropriate diet for them,” Frimberger said. “But for most healthy pets, the trend to feed premium quality ingredient food goes back to our habit of viewing our pets’ needs through the lens of what we would like, rather than what they actually need or like. We should remind ourselves that what is appealing to us doesn’t necessarily equate to actual nutritional quality for the pet.”

Frimberger noted there are some new food developments on the market that are worth looking into, especially for dogs, including lab-grown meat. A 2014 study found insects are a good and nutritious source of protein for pets — and not likely to gross your companion out (unlike humans who would find eating such critters revolting).

“Insect-based pet foods can be nutritionally complete and are starting to come onto the market around the world,” Frimberger said. “They can also be a solution for some pets that have food allergies to traditional protein sources.”

And of course, only feed the amount of food that your pet needs — they’ll be healthier and feel better too if they’re not overweight.

Well there you have it.  A veterinarian for Vets for Climate Action provides the answers for those concerned with their pets ‘pawprints’.  The ‘2014 Study’ referenced in the article concludes: ‘Next to these indices of protein quality, other aspects such as efficiency of conversion of organic side streams(,,), feasibility of mass-production(,), product safety(,,) and pet owner perception will determine if insect species are used in future pet food formulations. These and other aspects require further study.’

And… This paper was published as part of the WALTHAM International Nutritional Sciences Symposium Proceedings 2013, publication of which was supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Mars Incorporated

Hmmm, what is Mars Incorporated involved in?  Mars, Incorporated is an American multinational manufacturer of confectionery, pet food, and other food products and a provider of animal care services, with US$40 billion in annual sales in 2021

Thank God CNN has their priorities straight regarding the ‘climate problem’.
