The technocrat expressed his desire for everyone to eat fake meat as a "climate-friendly" alternative to the real thing. During an interview with the MIT Technology Review, Gates remarked that people's behaviors should be changed to make them like lab-grown meat. He stressed that regulations could strong-arm people into eating the frankenfood items.
"I do think all rich countries should move to 100 percent synthetic beef," Gates told the Review. "You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they're going to make it taste even better over time."
The Microsoft co-founder also pointed to various proposals that ban the deceptive practice of labeling lab-grown meat as the real thing. He said: "There are all these bills that say it's got to be called, basically, lab garbage to be sold. They don't want us to use the beef label."
Interestingly, the Daily Expose stated that Gates is an investor in both Memphis Meats and Impossible Foods. In the case of the latter, he joined Google and Amazon bigwig Jeff Bezos in bankrolling the venture. Aside from fake meat, Gates also backed the startup Biomilq which seeks to develop lab-cultured breast milk.
Despite his big money bankrolling Impossible Foods, the free market has spoken and declared that the real thing is better than the artificially-made version. This translated to lower profits, leading Impossible Foods to implement cost-cutting measures.
According to the National Pulse, Impossible Foods announced a third wave of layoffs on Jan. 30. Around 140 of the company's 700 staff members would be axed from their jobs. The company defended the decision as necessary to streamline and "hyper-grow" the business. (Related: Fake meat firms collapsing due to lower sales, anti-woke backlash.)
For the fake meat industry to actually be commercially viable, manufacturing capacity should be increased. To achieve this, fake meat companies use immortalized cell lines for their products. A Feb. 7 Bloomberg article by science writer Joe Fassler expounded on this issue.
"Normal meat cells don't just keep dividing forever. To get the cell cultures to grow at rates big enough to power a business, several companies … are quietly using what are called immortalized cells, something most people have never eaten intentionally," he wrote.
While immortalized cell lines "are a staple of medical research," Fassler noted that these are technically pre-cancerous and can be fully cancerous at times.
"The problem is that the materials used to make the product – 'immortalized cell lines' – replicate forever, just like cancer. Which means, in effect, that they are cancer. Industry types are 'confident' that eating such products poses no risk. But it's not difficult to see, even if the products are 'proven' safe, how people might be put off by the thought that they're eating a glorified tumor."
Raw Egg Nationalist (REN) further delved into the issue by means of a Feb. 17 op-ed for the Pulse.
According to him, the dangers of fake meat made using immortalized cell lines come from the fact that long-term safety data for its consumption are not yet available. Aside from this, image concerns also came into play.
"Producers of lab-grown meat favor immortal cell lines for much the same reasons scientists do. Since normal cells will only go on dividing so long, constant samples would need to be taken from animals to continue production," REN wrote.
"As well as increasing costs, this would also give the lie to the claim that lab-grown meats are 'cruelty-free' since animals would still need to be raised – and ultimately slaughtered at some point – to produce them."
