Is Lab-Grown Meat a suitable replacement for Factory Farming?
It would be far cheaper leading to better health of poor people.
Protein malnutrition is a large cause of poor health worldwide.
It would be much cheaper to normalize vegetarian/vegan proteins than to build massive labs for meat.
As it is dependent on technology and cannot be "farmed" easily, lab-grown meat may not reach developing countries where it could improve the diet of poor people.
As of today, although lab-meat companies
aim to reduce the costs
even under that of regular meat, and it can be argued that its production is cheaper in terms of environmental impact, it
isn't cheaper to the final consumer
Healthiness of regular meat
is widely disputed
. Lab-grown meat might face this same issue.
