I believe the world is at a tipping point with a transformative technology that very few people are aware exist. Cultured meat - grown from cells of animals without requiring their slaughter, will change not only what we eat, but also save our planet, prevent future global pandemics (I see you COVID-19), and prevent the slaughter of billions of animals.
