Norfolk, Va. – Beneath, please discover a assertion from PETA Govt Vice President Tracy Reiman in response to information that for the primary time, the U.S. Meals and Drug Administration has given an organization—UPSIDE Meals—the inexperienced mild to promote cultured meat within the U.S.:
Years in the past, PETA funded the very first foray into cultured meat analysis at two U.S. universities, supplied a $1 million prize for the primary laboratory that would create commercially viable lab-grown rooster meat, and even patented the findings of a scientist who ultimately joined UPSIDE Meals earlier than promoting the patent to the startup at a really low price, so we’re over the moon to see “slaughter-less meat” changing into a actuality. However as billions of animals are nonetheless killed yearly for meals, animal agriculture is fueling the local weather disaster, and scrumptious vegan meats are already broadly accessible, there’s no purpose to attend on authorities greenlights; everybody can and will go vegan now.
PETA—whose motto reads, partially, that “animals usually are not ours to eat” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—gives a free vegan starter package on its web site. For extra data, please go to PETA.org or comply with the group on Twitter, Fb, or Instagram.
