    Exclamation Eating yourself - lab grown meat grown from your own cells

    Scientists, artists develop concept for grow-your-own human steaks using cells, expired blood

    November 20, 2020

    The Ouroboros Steak — named after the ancient alchemic symbol of a snake eating its own tail — has been nominated by a prolific museum as its design of the year.

    The Ouroboros Steak isn't just any steak: It's a steak made from the acquisition of human cells and expired donated blood.

    Ouroboros Steak grow-your-own human meat kit is "technically" not cannibalism. https://t.co/E5RX6upYVq

    What are the details?

    According to its webpage, London-based Design Museum nominated the "steak" for its Design of the Year award.

    Dezeen magazine reported, "Ouroboros Steak could be grown by the diner at home using their own cells, which are harvested from the inside of their cheek and fed serum derived from expired, donated blood. The resulting bite-sized pieces of meat, currently on display as prototypes at the Beazley Designs of the Year exhibition."

    According to Fox News, the human steak was created by scientist Andrew Pelling, artist Orkan Telhan, and artist Grace Knight on commission by the Philadelphia Museum of Art for a 2019 exhibit.

    The Ouroboros Steak designers told Dezeen that the exhibit was created in critical response to the lab-grown meat industry.

    Fox News pointed out that the industry is reliant on fetal bovine serum, which is made from the blood of calf fetuses.

    "As the lab-grown meat industry is developing rapidly, it is important to develop designs that expose some of its underlying constraints in order to see beyond the hype," Pelling told Dezeen.

    The steak would take about three months to "grow" from cells taken from inside a human's cheek, according to Dezeen. For its museum display, the Ouroboros Steak team used human cell cultures and grew them with expired donated blood.

    "Expired human blood is a waste material in the medical system and is cheaper and more sustainable than FBS, but culturally less-accepted," Knight told the magazine.

    Its makers also say that the grow-your-own human steaks kit is not "technically" cannibalism.

    "People think that eating oneself is cannibalism, which technically this is not," Knight told Dezeen.

    Telhan added, "We are not promoting 'eating ourselves' as a realistic solution that will fix humans' protein needs. We rather ask a question: what would be the sacrifices we need to make to be able to keep consuming meat at the pace that we are? In the future, who will be able to afford animal meat and who may have no other option than culturing meat from themselves?"

    Fox News pointed out that the website for the imagined product reads, "Growing yourself ensures that you and your loved ones always know the origin of your food, how it has been raised, and that its cells were acquired ethically and consensually."

    At the time of this reporting, lab-grown meats of any kind are not yet licensed for human consumption.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Why, you are, silly.

    In FY 2020 Philadelphia Museum of Art received $6 million in government funding, along with millions more in grants and donations from foundations that collect for such things, many times under "shady" labeling...in other words, your $100 bucks that you think is going to buy food at the homeless shelter, may very well have gone instead to fund the "Cannibal Steak" project or "Piss Christ" at the local lefty art museum.

    Among the companies hoping to bring cultured meat to market are Aleph Farms, which claims to have been the first company to make a lab-grown steak. Others have focused on substituting meat entirely, with Novameat creating a 3D-printed steak from vegetable proteins.

    They were fed with human serum derived from expired blood donations that would otherwise have been discarded or incinerated.
    I hope they get the human form of mad cow disease and die.


    For around three months, these are stored in a warm environment such as a low-temperature oven and fed with human serum until the steak is fully grown.
    warm oven, powered by what, all the farts from the rampant overpopulation of grazing animals we are no longer allowed to eat??

    and by "fully grown" they mean bite-sized

    These people are 1. uncreative and 2. have way too much $#@!ing time and money

    I'll had aquaponics as an individualistic food production solution on the radar for quite some time. Great minds..

    But yes, individuals producing their own food and energy aren't part of the future that the megacity/megagrid people have in mind, though simply that would be a solution to so many economic and social problems. *Le sigh*

    Scientist suggests eating human flesh to fight climate change
    By Gerren Keith Gx NewsSeptember 9, 2019 | 12:52pm aynor, Fo


    A Swedish scientist speaking at Stockholm summit last week offered an unusual possible tactic in combating global climate change: eating human flesh.

    Stockholm School of Economics professor and researcher Magnus Soderlund reportedly said he believes eating human meat, derived from dead bodies, might be able to help save the human race if only a world society were to “awaken the idea.”

    Soderlund’s argument for human cannibalism was front and center during a panel talk called “Can You Imagine Eating Human Flesh?” at the Gastro Summit, reports the Epoch Times. “Conservative” taboos against cannibalism, he said, can change over time if people simply tried eating human flesh.
