This group of scientists of such an unusual project want to draw public attention to the problem of killing animals.

A team of scientists and designers have created meat grown from human cells.

To “grow” the steak, they took human cells and blood, from which they cultivated a real steak. The authors of the project emphasize that they do not consider their idea to be cannibalism.

The grown steak was named Ouroboros by scientists. This word refers to a snake biting its own tail and is an ancient symbol of eternity and the cyclical nature of life.

“Ouroboros Steak could be grown by the diner at home using their own cells, which are harvested from the inside of their cheek and fed serum derived from expired, donated blood,” the authors of the idea say.

The development can now be seen at the Beazley Designs of the Year exhibition.

“The main advantage of this method is that there is no harm to animals. A person gets all the same meat, but no one dies,” the scientists emphasize.

The whole growing process takes three months.

“We are not promoting ‘eating ourselves’ as a realistic solution that will fix humans’ protein needs. We rather ask a question: what would be the sacrifices we need to make to be able to keep consuming meat at the pace that we are? In the future, who will be able to afford animal meat and who may have no other option than culturing meat from themselves?” the product developers explained.
