Eating $#!+ (caution carnivores)

About: japanese scientists create meat from poop -

After ~ 6 weeks on a vegan diet even a regular McDonald's smells bad to me. I had a portobello mushroom burger last night which was delish! I wonder if McDonalds in Japan is paving the way.  All of this in the name of environmental science, eh? Poop Burgers. My next question - is it radioactive?

Japanese scientist Mitsuyuki Ikeda from the Okayama Laboratory certainly does[n't] believe in human waste.
He thinks that's perfectly good protein you're sending out to sea, and he's found a way to extract it, mix it with steak sauce and create a fecal feast fit for a king.

And despite the downside of having to add soya to bind it all together, Prof Ikeda thinks there's no reason why we shouldn't all tuck into his turd burgers.

Humans, desperate for meat, apparently looking to grow them from beef stem cells in a lab.
source: ...

The first ‘test-tube’ hamburger is only a year away, scientists claim.

They believe the product, beef mince grown from stem cells, could pave the way for eating meat without animals being slaughtered.

The Dutch scientists predict that over the next few decades the world’s population will increase so quickly that there will not be enough livestock to feed everyone.

...  great for those who are cannibals cuz you can slip a few human stem cells in there too!

 .. I remember the folks saying that RS predicted that in the future we would be making our food in chemistry labs.
Just for fun, this guy asks,  why are scientists not trying to regenerate the humus (not the chickpea spread)  & soil to grow healthy food ?

My question is, assuming that the taste, texture, and nutritional value of artificial meat is the same as natural, and assuming that less resources are use, they why wouldn't this be a better way to make meat ?
Garbage in -> Garbage out on those assumptions.  Chemists can't find a life-force nor a soul nor a spirit; your mileage may vary!  Plant a vitamin C pill & see if you get an orange. Even GMO is an atrocity for good food 'cuz you can't do a 100 year study to see what evolution will do with the modifications in the human being.  Current "living with chemistry" has made McNuggets out of a lot of children! .... & exercise fanatics whose sweat stinks so bad that nobody wants the machines next to them. (personal experience that)
