Brooklynites weigh in on test-tube beef
We ask: Would you eat petri meat?
This is a really cool concept. Yeah, I think I would. I don’t have any reservations and I feel a lot of people are moving towards trying new things.
Arumme Agaiwal, Clinton Hill
We have enough problems with our food as it is. But if you didn’t know, it wouldn’t matter.
Minerva Morales, Park Slope
No, no, no. USDA-approved only.
Denzel Greene, East Flatbush
I’d give it a try. You don’t have any on you, do you?
Forrest Myers, Williamsburg
No. There are so many layers to how nature creates something. We can’t just skim the surface and say ‘That’s what makes meat.’”
Lesley Kernochan, Ditmas Park
The idea of test tube meat is as intriguing as it is revolting, so we figured we should put the big-money question that could make or break the bio-tech industry to everyday Brooklynites: “Would you eat a hamburger grown in a test tube?”
Un-surprisingly, their responses were as mixed as a vat of ground beef.
