Pentagon Wants To Feed US Soldiers ‘Experimental’ Lab-Grown Meat

US troops used as guinea-pigs for experimental food in order to “Reduce CO2 Footprint”

The Pentagon has been slammed over its woke plan to test lab grown meat on American soldiers.

According to a report by the Free Beacon, a Pentagon contractor that has received over $500 million in funding from the Defense Department, wants to produce lab-grown meat for US soldiers in order to “reduce the CO2 footprint” at Defense Department outposts.

While supporters of the project said US national security hinges on addressing climate change and pursuing new technologies, critics have slammed the move saying that US troops should not be used as guinea pigs for experimental food.

The production of lab-grown meat is still in experimental phases as it is grown in a lab from animal cells with the aid of other chemicals.

ZeroHedge reports: BioMADE, a public-private DoD contractor, “is a Manufacturing Innovation Institute (MII) sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) with a vision to build a sustainable, domestic, end-to-end bioindustrial manufacturing ecosystem,” according to a project overview posted last month. It is seeking proposals to develop “innovations in food production that reduce the CO2 footprint of food production at … DoD operational environments,” which include “novel cell culture methods suitable for the production of cultivated meat/protein,” aka lab-grown meat.

This type of meat is grown in a lab from animal cells with the aid of other chemicals, and has emerged as a flashpoint in debates about the efficacy and morality of manufacturing meat products without slaughtering animals.

BioMADE—which earlier this year received a $450 million infusion of taxpayer cash—maintains that lab-grown food products will reduce the Pentagon’s carbon footprint, a priority for the American military as it pursues a Biden administration-mandate to address climate change and other cultural issues that critics describe as “woke.” -Free Beacon

“Innovations in food production that reduce the CO2 footprint of food production at and/or transport to DoD operational environments are solicited,” the company said in an informational document. “These could include, but are not limited to, production of nutrient-dense military rations via fermentation processes, utilizing one carbon molecule (C1) feedstocks for food production, and novel cell culture methods suitable for the production of cultivated meat/protein.”

The company is also soliciting proposals for “processes that convert greenhouse gasses,” as well as “projects that develop bioproducts useful in mitigating the negative environmental impacts either regionally or globally,” including “bioproducts that can be used to prevent or slow coastal erosion

The project has fallen under heavy scrutiny from critics, who say that US troops should not be used as guinea pigs for experimental food.
