The Future of Food - What's Left for Agriculture?
From Prof. Justus Wesseler, University of Wageningen
The production of meat and fish from stem cells is coming closer to reality. Several companies invest in this technology (NRC). The technology looks promising and appealing. Animal meat produced without slaughtering cattle, pigs, chickens, or catch fish from the ocean avoids issues related to animal welfare and declining marine biodiversity. The environmental impacts related to animal production such as greenhouse gases emissions and disposal of manure are other potential benefits.?The technologies, however, at this point time are still far from reaching the market in substantial amounts, and it is difficult to predict when this will be.
