Good heavens, are we talking about the Enterprise's food replicator?
It is what comes to mind of a pleasant future and not a catastrophic one, as we all see it.
You're right about the way we raise animals for human consumption. Obviously in an inhumane way, which has brought health problems from the beginning, mad cow, bird flu, pig flu, etc. And from the point of view of fish, well we have mercury contamination. Excellent, we can no longer eat meat without dying of something produced by what we eat.
I suppose, in the end, scientists will change the name of this product (lab-grown meat) to one that doesn't attract people's attention as much (or cause repulsion). Something like enriched synthetic protein? We could solve world hunger. But most certainly not. The world is not governed by scientists, nor by wise people, only by politicians and businessmen.
Now the question is what kind of influence this type of food will have on our personality, our behavior, etc. It is said that we are what we eat? I think I read it somewhere...
I visualize a futuristic world where people traffic in natural and not artificially created meat. Hehehe
