25 Startling Revelations About Meat That Might Leave You Salivating

Meat is one of those things that, unless you live in India, probably defines your eating habits to some extent. In fact, even if you are vegetarian you probably spend a lot of time considering meat replacements or whether a certain restaurant serves food that you can eat. Even in countries where people eat meat, it sometimes can only be a certain type of meat. In many Muslim countries, for example, meat must be halal. This means that it must be killed in a certain way. As you can see, eating meat is not as simple anymore as just going down to the farm and killing some animals for yourself. Meat production has also become a contested issue as of late. The ways in which animals make their way from the fields onto your table has been criticized and come under the spotlight. Scientists, in an effort to find solutions to many of the world’s problems, are on the verge of developing meat that can be produced artificially. This means that the meat isn’t derived from animals but is rather grown! In fact, such meat would be chemically indistinguishable from “regular” meat. These are 25 startling revelations about meat that might leave you salivating.
