Science has proven many things, and even assisted in making life better for people around the world. But the underlying truth about science today is that over 70% of all research is funded by corporations and the government. Each having their own agendas, and each seeking to profit from their best interests.
This is why the FDA has fought tooth and nail to not only keep scientifically destructive GMO products from being labelled on food, but to go to courts against farmers themselves who desire to use nature over science in planting and harvesting.
But GMO is not the only research being done to grow frankenfoods and replace them in the American diets. A new grant is being made which intended to create food and meat substances from special 3-D printers which are revolutionizing the world of manufacturing.

3D printing has been used to create running shoes, medical implants, and, to the delight of firearm enthusiasts, a .22 caliber handgun. So why not a 3D-printed steak for the grill?
Billionaire investor Peter Thiel's philanthropic foundation plans to announce today a six-figure grant for bioprinted meat, part of an ambitious plan to bring to the world's dinner tables a set of technologies originally developed for creating medical-grade tissues.
The recipient of the Thiel Foundation's grant, a Columbia, Mo.-based startup named Modern Meadow, is pitching bioprinted meat as a more environmentally-friendly way to satisfy a natural human craving for animal protein. - Cnet
Science fiction has for decades given doomsday scenarios of the future of food sources in a growing world population. From human consumption in movies like the Matrix and Soylent Green, to computer generated foods from molecular conversion in Star Trek episodes, the rise of science is no longer about improving natures playground of planting and harvesting, but moving food from the farm into the lab which has a long history of dire results to human kind.
