[Merged]Milk-free cheese made from human DNA

33 posts in this topic

A vegan-friendly cheese has been created in a lab using strands of human DNA and baker's yeast.

San Francisco-based iGem group said it found a way to make cheese proteins using genetic sequences found in mammals.

The DNA blueprints are inserted into the yeast, which creates cheese that is vegan-compatible because of the lack of animal products.

Hate to say it, but it sounds pretty gross. (Thinking Mad Cow Disease).

And I can't imagine a Vegan would touch it.

as far i can see, this is not cannibalism if it was each time people kiss it would be called cannibalism because there is DNA in the saliva.

so if people were really as simple minded as your comment, they would all be cannibals.

and the meaning of cannibalism is eating another one from their own species, like flesh and other things and i don't think DNA is in cannibalism category since everyone who have kissed would be a cannibal. (using kissing as an example, there are other ways as well)

Ontopic: seems interesting for vegetarians.

Does this mean I can use the old "I thought he was vegan cheese" argument if I am arrested for cannibalism.

I can't put my finger on exactly why, but it just seems wrong on so many levels. Human DNA cheese? Really?

I'll bet one thing, that little fact/ingredient will not be featured on the packaging. Kinda makes you wonder about the rest of the processed **** we eat.

It's not exactly vegan if it's based on animals.

I'll stick to real cheese.

Author's Opinion: iGem has raised $37,369 for Real Vegan Cheese, greatly surpassing their original goal of $15,000.

They've gained a lot in six months. Previous thread -

I'm waiting for the moment when all this engineered stuff starts causing some crazy mutations in people. Why not go the extra mile, Soylent Green for everyone. Or made out of everyone. :whistle:

Man, I wanted to toss my cookies the first time this subject came up.

I really fail to see how using human DNA and yeast makes for a dairy product. Just like tofu does not really make hamburger. And really, if people freak out that soda is tested with human particles and that's wrong... why would artificial cheese substitute made with human particles be ok?

Maybe I just feel too strongly about the subject since I was born and raised in dairyland.

Technically wouldn't that be GMO cheese, as it comes from genetically modified yeast? I don't think it is going to fly with my vegan friends. They won't touch anything GMO. On top of that how many little yeasty beasties were killed making this "cheese." :cry:

Is cheese so necessary that it has gone this far? When I had a suspected heart attack and lifestyle evaluation, my cholesterol was too high... why? Well, I used to eat a lot of cheese for one!

Remember, any fat...thats solid at room temperature, like cheese... isnt good for you. So to me this report is like saying...."We've found out how to make synthetic sugar, its just as bad for you, but no plants got injured making it" :lol:

Humans are animals so as soon as you introduce human DNA it is no longer vegan, correct?
