Lab Grown Meat from 'Eat Just' has a curious connection to China, through a company that does animal testing.
REVEALED: The Curious Connection Between Lab Grown Meat, Primate Breeding, and China’s Biowarfare Program.
"Cultured chicken”, also known as “lab-grown meat”, is being tested and approved by JOINN Biologics
, a Chinese firm with links to China’s biowarfare program.
JOINN Biologics made national headlines
in 2022 when it bought
1,400 acres of land in Morriston, Florida at a cost of $5.5 million, to build a new primate quarantine and breeding facility to expand the parent company’s existing lab-animal-breeding operations. The purchase was one of the largest single purchases of American real estate by a Chinese company to date.
News of the purchase led to the revelation that JOINN, like most Chinese companies, has extremely close ties
to the Chinese government and its biowarfare program.
The news is also a major blow to the credibility of a foodstuff that is marketed on its “whiter than white” ethical credentials. Lab-grown meat is touted as the “cruelty-free” food of the future, a win-win for consumers who will be able to enjoy “real” meat without any animal suffering at all to produce it. With regard to GOOD Meat’s cultivated chicken, that credibility was already seriously in doubt. Despite CEO Josh Tetrick’s claims it is “real meat without slaughter
”, GOOD Meat’s product is and always has been made with fetal bovine serum (FBS), an ingredient the company is careful to avoid mentioning, with good reason. FBS is extracted directly from the hearts of unborn calves in slaughterhouses, often while they are still alive
Adding this to the fact that GOOD Meat’s product is made by a firm that breeds thousands of primates for experimentation, all moral grandstanding evaporates.
