Summary
"Meat Planet explores the quest to grow meat in laboratories--a substance sometimes called "cultured meat"--And asks what it means to imagine that this is the future of food. This book takes the reader on a tour of the laboratories, kitchens, public debates, and media events that may launch this novel food technology. While pundits and entrepreneurs promote cultured meat as a solution to the ethical and environmental problems of industrial meat, Meat Planet meditates on the philosophical, historical and anthropological meanings of future flesh"--Provided by publisher
