Advancements in science and technology have done great things for the world, but as the world continues to change, some things are better left untouched.
A “DIY meal kit” for growing steak made from human cells was recently nominated for the “design of the year” by the London-based Design Museum, and while it could dramatically change how food is made, the makers are now assuring people eating their food is not “technically” cannibalism.
Oroboros Steak is currently just a hypothetical meal kit, but would potentially give consumers everything they need to use their own cells to grow miniature human meat steaks, reports Fox News.
“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,” said the website for the potential product.
The meal kit was designed by scientist Andrew Pelling, artist Orkan Telhan and Grace Knight.
While the product is nowhere near being released to the public, it could one day help the lab-grown meat industry. As long as they figure out a way to convince people it’s not cannibalism.
