Lab-Grown Meat Is 25 Times Worse for the Environment
The video above features a presentation I made at The Attack on Food Symposium, hosted by Dr. Meryl Nass and presented by Children’s Health Defense TV, March 4, 2023. In it, I describe how food and agriculture are under attack, and how the fake food agenda threatens human health and the environment alike.
In attempting to create cultured meat on the scale that would be necessary to feed the world, logistical problems are numerous and, possibly, insurmountable. There are waste products — catabolites — to deal with, as even cultured cells excrete waste that is toxic.
The environmental benefits are also on shaky ground when you factor in GE soy production and the use of conventional energy sources. When that is factored in, analyses predict cultured meat will be worse for the environment than conventionally produced chicken, pork21,22 and beef.23
At the end of the day, it’s important to realize that the synthetic meat market is based on a slew of false premises and assumptions, and that the real agenda has nothing to do with saving the planet or improving human health. It’s to eliminate traditional farming and make populations dependent on mass-produced, patented, ultraprocessed foods.
Do We Need to Worry About Biowarfare Too?
There are also open questions about whether lab-grown meat may be weaponized in some way. GOOD Meat, which recently gained FDA approval for its cultured chicken, is using a Chinese firm called JOINN Biologics for its production and quality control — a company linked to China’s biowarfare program.
JOINN Biologics is also involved in some sort of animal-breeding operation. In 2022, they purchased 1,400 acres of land in Morriston, Florida, with the intention to build a primate facility. As reported by The National Pulse:24
“A number of key personnel who work for JOINN Biologics and its parent company studied or worked at the Academy of Military Medical Sciences in Beijing. In 2021, the Academy was added to the U.S. trade blacklist for supplying biotechnology to the Chinese military.
The founder of JOINN and chair of its board of directors is Yuxia Feng, a military physician and a graduate of the Academy. Her co-founder and vice chair of the board of directors, Conglin Zuo, worked at the Academy, in its Institute of Biotechnology.
Other key personnel such as Hemei Wang and Shusheng Feng were also employed by the Academy, in the Institute of Pharmacology and Toxicology. Feng has worked on research with a number of scientists in the People’s Liberation Army who are considered key players in China’s biological weapons research …
JOINN’s involvement in the testing and production of America’s first commercially available lab-grown meat raises questions about the safety certification process for the product and about Chinese influence over critical aspects of America’s infrastructure, including its food supply.”
What are we to make of this? I don’t know, but the idea of relegating production and quality control, of all things, to a company tied to the Chinese biowarfare program seems rather reckless, and certainly doesn’t instill confidence. Without doubt, however, food could be used as a distribution route for a bioweapon, and I’ll just leave it at that for now.
