The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the sale of lab-grown meat produced by a Chinese firm linked to a biowarfare program. This decision has raised serious concerns among public health experts and food safety advocates.
The FDA's approval of the lab-grown meat, which was produced by Upside Foods, a Chinese firm with ties to the People's Liberation Army, has been met with criticism from those who fear that it could be used as a weapon in biowarfare. The company is said to have close ties to the PLA's biological weapons program, which is believed to be responsible for developing and testing various forms of biological agents.
Public health experts are also concerned about the potential risks posed by consuming lab-grown meat. While the FDA claims that it has evaluated the safety of this product, there is still no clear consensus on whether or not it is safe for human consumption.
Furthermore, there are questions about how this product will be regulated once it hits store shelves.
In addition, many are questioning why the FDA would approve a product from a company linked to a biowarfare program in the first place. This decision raises serious ethical questions about whether or not such products should be allowed on store shelves at all.
Ultimately, while the FDA may have given its approval for this lab-grown meat produced by a Chinese firm linked to biowarfare program, many remain skeptical about its safety and ethical implications.
