PETA:: Fake Meat



"PETA
, the extremely controversial animal rights organization, is in the news again. This time it’s because they have announced a competition of sorts. They’re offering a million dollar prize to anyone who can make a viable fake meat.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants to pay a million dollars for fake meat — even if it has caused a “near civil war” within the organization.

The organization said it would announce plans on Monday for a $1 million prize to the “first person to come up with a method to produce commercially viable quantities of in vitro meat at competitive prices by 2012.”



"It may seem odd, but there's a parallel between abductions and dog attacks.

Most children who are victimized aren't randomly selected; they're attacked by a person or dog known to them. Just as an abductor is more likely to be someone known to the child -- an estranged parent, say -- a dog involved in a serious attack is more likely to be an animal the child knows, kept by the family, a friend or a relative."

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I have subscribed to your blog and will put you in my blogroll. If you fancy putting me in yours that would be great, if not, no problem!

I used to eat meat and obviously appreciate fake meat. The closest I have had to fake meat are fake hotdogs and maybe the odd restaurant meal. No idea what they used!
