Praise For…

“Factory farms cause unacceptable cruelty to sentient animals and major damage to the environment. This book demonstrates that cultivated meat can play an important role in closing them down.”
—Dr. Jane Goodall; DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) and UN Messenger of Peace
“Producing meat from animals on the vast scale that is happening now is an environmental disaster and a grave public health risk. Can cultivated meat truly secure our future? Michel Vandenbosch and Philip Lymbery have brought together an impressive group of experts to answer this question.”
—Peter Singer, Professor of Bioethics, Princeton University
“A thoughtful and well-edited collection of critical discourse on the impacts of integrating cultivated meat into the food systems solutions toolbox.”
—Robert E. Jones, President, Cellular Agriculture Europe
Cultivated Meat to Secure Our Future lives up to its subtitle, offering abundant helpings of hope for animals, food security, climate, and biodiversity. Curated by two of Europe’s most successful advocates for animal protection, this is an inspiring collection of essays by some of the strongest and earliest advocates for and commentators on the scientific endeavor of making real animal meat without the need for live animals.”
—Bruce Friedrich, President & Founder, the Good Food Institute
“I transitioned to being an ethical vegan because I couldn’t support the intense cruelty involved in factory farming. That is why I am so excited to read this book. It offers us a real alternative to eating ourselves into extinction because of the destruction caused by intensive animal agriculture to our planet. I mentioned to a friend how thrilled I am by this, and he turned his nose up and said, ‘I don’t trust meat produced in a lab.’ ‘So you prefer the meat, cruelly produced, in the unhygienic conditions of a factory then,’ I asked, and he didn’t reply. However, don’t take my word for it, read this compelling book. It is, in my opinion, the future. Cultivated meat is more humane, it is healthier, and it will ultimately save our wonderful planet.”
—Peter Egan, Actor and Animal Advocate
