I can't wait for that lab meat to become affordable to get more high-income country citizens off energy-inefficient animal meat. There's a lot of potential in this new technology. The products could even be personalized (almost like Star Trek's food replicator-style), and we could stop burning down rainforests to grow food which we then ship around the globe to feed to animals before we eat a fraction of them. It would also help lower the risk of zoonotic diseases.

I hope modern technology and the love and continuously newly-gained respect for our planet and fellow Earthlings will go hand in hand. However, wellness influencers are nothing but arms dealers, utilizing our fears to their capitalistic advantage. Big Wellness sucks. But it's here to challenge our species, causing lots and lots of failures that occasionally result in a breakthrough.

Thank you. Great article.
