Intensive research on the progression of food production and the Anthropocene have inspired Zane Cerpina to come up with BaaR (Body as a Restaurant). It is a revolutionary concept that looks at the possibility of culturing meat from the individual’s samples of muscles. It may be a radical concept at first, but we have to remember that culturing meat from a single cell has been proven possible.
BaaR may give us the answer to a self-sustaining future for the survival of the human race. But it raises more questions than answers with regards to the ethics of auto-cannibalism, veganism, and our consumption habits. So perhaps desperate times calls for desperate measures. And at least this time, food rationing may be a bit easier.
But can we say that we’re already at desperate times?
