Will cellular agriculture products be healthier than traditional farmed animal products?


Theoretically, cellular agriculture products could avoid foodborne illness attributable to fecal contamination and could minimize the risk of the development of epidemic zoonotic viruses like swine or avian flu. The products could also be designed to have better nutritional profiles than animal products from animals.

However, while these benefits are promising and hopeful, they do remain theoretical. Until there is more research conducted on what impacts of these products might be, the various ways in which they can be compared or contrasted to traditionally produced animal products has not yet been determined with measurable evidence.
