The “DIY meal kit” for growing steaks made from human cells was actually even nominated for “design of the year” by the London-based Design Museum.
Grace Knight, one of the designers, thas spoken to Dezeen magazine about the human steak kit:
“People think that eating oneself is cannibalism, which technically this is not,”
“Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat”, Guy Fieri#cultivatedmeat #cleanmeat #kitchentissueengineering pic.twitter.com/R0gdC5jkJ5

“Growing yourself ensures that you and your loved ones always know the origin of your food, how it has been raised and that its cells were acquired ethically and consensually,”
