Replacing natural foods?

I don't normally trust yahoo news articles on their factual information. I take everything I read with a grain of salt. But I really and truly hope that this article is not true. That what they are trying to do is a joke. The only other news site that appears to have information on this article is the Huffington Post (coincidentally it's the same article).

Food-tech startups aim to replace eggs and chicken

What are your thoughts on this?

It's not a joke, saw it on the news a month or so ago.

Personally I don't have a problem with it. I'm not going to swap from eggs to this product anytime soon but I know a lot of people who will.

Don't really know how to explain what I am thinking. I think its peta minded thinking masquerading as environmentalists. Also in line with peta type thinking is a way to make money under the guise of doing good. On the other hand there is a need. a friend of mine's brother is allergic to eggs, and they are in alot of things that you normally don't think about. Hope that made sense.

If someone wants to eat highly processed, fake "chicken" and "eggs", more power to them.

I have plenty of 100% natural, healthy, REAL chickens and eggs in my backyard and won't be touching some horrid, fakey product with a 10ft pole.

Aubie, makes perfect sense. If a person needs it that's fine and perfectly understandable. And I understand that the meat industry definitely needs an overhaul (another topic for a different thread) but you can't even come close to replacing the nutrients that are found in eggs. When people say that the egg is a superfood, it really is a superfood. And the body more readily absorbs, digests, and processes natural foods a lot easier and more healthily than it does processed "fake" foods. Animal meat is the best source of iron for a person. And Vitamin B12 (naturally) can only be found in meat. Iron, while found in both plants and animal meat, is most easily absorbed from animal meat. Plant based diets block the absorption of a lot of essential vitamins and minerals. My concerns, besides the mentioned items above, is that they are going to start serving this in restaurants and not tell us unless we ask. Kind of similar to the whole "pink slime" in meats a few years ago.

To me it's like this. If it ain't broke don't fix it. There is nothing wrong with natural foods so quit trying to fix it.
