What’s Clean Meat?
Since the dawn of Homo sapiens some quarter million years ago, animals have satiated our species’ desire for meat. But with our growing population and global demand for animal products increasing, raising such huge numbers of animals for food poses serious challenges.
But…what if we could have our meat and eat it too? Enter clean meat.
Just as we need clean energy to compete with fossil fuels, clean meat is poised to become a competitor of factory farms. Clean meat isn’t an alternative to meat; it’s real, actual meat grown (or brewed!) from animal cells, as well as other clean animal products that ditch animal cells altogether and are simply built from the molecule up.
In this groundbreaking book, author Paul Shapiro tells the wild tale of the innovators and investors racing to commercialize the world’s first real animal products that are grown without animals.
