Lab-Grown Meat

Pentagon Wants to Use American Troops as Guinea Pigs for “Experimental” Lab-Grown Meat

The Department of Defense is looking for a more “sustainable” protein source than good, old fashioned meat. And given that this is the American military we’re talking about, that means outsourcing most of the research and development to the private sector by throwing an ungodly amount of tax dollars at whoever claims they can achieve this goal.

In this case, the recipient of those tax dollars is BioMADE,  a public-private consortium that’s “building a robust bioindustrial manufacturing ecosystem” to develop lab-grown meat for the military. And thanks to its partnership with the Pentagon, American troops may be the guinea pigs it uses to test out whatever abominations they cook up in their labs!
