(NaturalNews) The group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) feels so strongly that humanity should not be eating animal meat that it has actually given grant money to scientists at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in Charleston to develop artificial meat created in a petri dish. And if this animal activist group gets its way, all humans who choose to eat meat, no matter how it is grown and raised, will have to eat the fake lab-cultured variety, which is basically just another type of toxic genetically-modified organism (GMO).

Dr. Vladimir Mironov, who wants to be the "Google of agriculture" -- his own words -- has been using PETA's money to develop a "cultured meat" product that involves adding a type of growth serum to animal stem cells, which in turn morphs these cells into a meat-like substance. With just the right amount of porous collagen microspheres, electric shock treatment, and flavoring additives thrown into the mix, Mironov and his colleagues say they can literally produce meat without animals.

"People are already eating genetically-modified food," said Mironov in defense of the controversial project, insinuating that his meat product is anything but natural. "People eat artificial flavors every day ... I don't think it will be difficult to convince people to try it."

Growing meat in a lab is just as 'cruel' to animals as slaughtering them

Ironically, the only way to begin the process of producing Mironov's faux meat is to first extract stem cells from animals by taking a biopsy, which involves removing animal tissue from live animals. If you can imagine this surgical procedure happening on a wide scale to thousands of animals in confinement, you will quickly recognize how hypocritical it is for PETA, who claims to defend the rights of animals, to advocate for extracting animal tissue from live animals in order to produce fake meat.

According to reports, early samples of Mironov's faux meat also look and feel more like "meat bars" rather than actual meat, and nobody really knows how the human body will react to such "food" when consumed. And while it is unlikely to hit store shelves for at least another five to ten years, early trials involving faux meat are set to begin this month in Sweden, where volunteers will be given the option to taste-test the meat-like substance for themselves.

One way food scientists are apparently hoping to convince people to accept faux meat is to first offer it to "rich" people for a high price. The "not-so-rich" people will eventually feel as though they are missing out on a luxury item that is better than real meat, which will create higher demand for faux meat. Once this mindset is established, faux meat manufacturers will then begin producing and dispensing the product en masse, and their agenda will have been achieved.

Concerning artificial foods, Obama White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses recently shared his opinion with the press that fake foods like Mironov's faux meat are the "food of the future." In his view, though, there is not much of a chance that the First Family or any other "elite" group will desire lab-created food -- like the rest of the sane world, the Obamas plan to stick with "traditional, sort of 'happy recipes' that people are familiar with."
