to a particular timeframe because there are still some scientific unknowns and factors outside

Practical ethics: “Utilitarianism”
“Decision should be made to maximize utility”
Utility = happiness x number of sentient beings
“Only 1 death is better than 5”...?
May be so in very short term, but...
If “killing for public good” becomes the
norm, no one is there to stop dictators
→ Is the utility maximized, in the long
run?
Utilitarian decision making is strongly
dependent on subject and timeline“Runaway trolley problem”
As it is, 5 will die. If you switch, only 1 will. Will you do it?
Animal welfare as deductions from utilitarianism
◆Animals are capable of feeling happiness
and thus sentient.
◆All sentient beings count.
◆”Species” as defined by biology is irrelevant
in ethical decisions.
⇒From a utilitarian point-of-view,
“making sentient beings suffer is
unethical”
Acknowledges health and environment, but mainly animal welfare and ethical
“Animal welfare” based
on utilitarianism
Reason for being a vegetarian
Vegetarian Society
East Asian vegetarianism
”Religion”←Not utilitarianism or other ethics
Ethical value of clean meat described by utilitarianism don’t directly
translate into East Asian religious (i.e. Buddhist) importance.
“Shojin ryori” Buddhist cuisine
Cuisine for for zen practitioners
Common name for “Buddhist cuisine”
All aspects must serve the purpose of zen.
-NO FOOD WASTE
-Use local produce to avoid food waste
-No cruelty (avoid fish and meat)
-Avoid ingredients that stimulate desires i.e. onions
-All donated food (incl. meat) must be consumed
-Cooking is also a part of zen practice
※contested
Known as “zhai cai” (齋菜) in Chinese
Would “murderless meat” help Zen?
”Would cell-based meat serve
the purpose of Zen?”
・Overcoming personal desires is a
major theme in zen
・”Desire” includes meat apetite
・”Fake meat” is a compromise, but
compromise is permissible
・Cell-based meat fits in the same
category as tofu - meat imitations.
Cell-based meat being “murderless” does not make it Zen - there are multiple more important criteria.
“Shojin” means “devotion to the righteous path”
Shojinmeat Project will stay committed to the path that obsoletes unsustainable meat
Meat in historical Japan
Before 7th century:
Eating meat was common. People just had to eat
whatever was in hand.
675c. Imperial decree of “No Killing (of animals)”
To direct labour force to rice production and put a stop to
local animal-sacrifice rituals & reinforce imperial authority
※Newly arrived Buddhism was used as justification
Meat avoidance continues till 19th c. and commoners
only started eating meat around 1900 c.
・Totals half billion? Region-specific
・More common among upper castes
・Some upper caste members fund
cultured meat research
・Hinduism doesn’t explicitly forbid meat
but adherents choose to avoid meat.
Mr. Modi (Indian PM as
of 2017) is a vegetarian.
Vegetarianism in India
Is it Halal?
“The halal cultured meat can be obtained if
the stem cell is extracted from a (Halal)
slaughtered animal, and no blood or serum
is used in the process.”
J Relig Health. 2018 Dec;57(6):2193-2206.
https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs10943-017-0403-3
“As long as the cells used are not from pigs,
dogs or other animals banned under the halal
laws, the meat would be vegetative and
"similar to yogurt and fermented pickles."
Abdul Qahir Qamar, The International Islamic Fiqh
Academy, Jeddha, Saudi Arabia

ld-be-the-future-of-food-1.1176127
“Work in progress, and being settled”
Halal authentication by
JAKIM (backed by the
Malaysian government) is
widely acknowledged.
“It is Halal” may
become the single
decisive purchase
reason in Islamic
sphere.
Potential future shift in ethical landscape
Then what if on 2040, meat alternatives rise to 30% market share and ever
more people stop consuming conventional meat?
・Uncontrollable ”hate campaign” against traditional farmers?
・Trade ban of conventional meat due to animal cruelty?
Why are animal experimentation,
Japanese whaling and Chinese cat/
dog consumption is problematised far
more than factory farming?
⇒Because they are “remote things” for
the protesters.
Ethical issues due to technological immaturity
(Transient) issues upon R&D:
・FBS production is not cruelty-free
“Unavoidable” issue:
・Extraction of cells
Likely to be solved in the future
May pose an issue during R&D
Can bovine foetus feel pain?
It may still inflict some pain.
Will animals still be chained?
Genetic selection of animals for the
sake of “tasty” - is it eugenics?
Ethical issues of “captive carnivore”
Wild animals exist outside human
control and no ethical questions
are raised against humans.
However, captive carnivores as pets
and zoo animals are under human
control → ethical questions
?? Is it ethical to let carnivores to prey on others??
Future court case: “Patent or Life (of animals)”
・Can rich countries with cell-based meat production technology blame
(poor) emerging countries for animal abuse?
・Court cases over “economic incentives (patent) vs. animal suffering”
Case study: Generic HIV drug lawsuit:
An Indian pharmaceutical company allegedly infringed
retroviral drug patent to manufacture generic HIV drugs,
because the original drugs by Western pharmaceutical
companies were too expensive for people in poor
African countries.
After high-profile court-martials, the Indian company
won the case on humanitarian basis.

All welcome:
Please join from Shojinmeat Project English Slack Channel
https://medium.com/@jaysonvdw/announcement-english-slack-channel-for-the-shojinmeat-project-a8
00e3886799
Some past questions (part 1)
Q: I would like to participate
A: There is no formal definition of membership.
Please Tweet to us or join slack channel.
Q: I’m not a biologist but would like to join
A: All disciplines welcome - multiple journalism,
art & other non-sci/tech projects are ongoing
Q: Where are carbon and nitrogen sourced?
A: Culture medium contains sugar and amino
acids. Amino acid is sourced from yeast which
feed on sugar. In future, artificial photosynthesis
and nitrogen fixation may take this role.
Q: Is fungal farming cellular agriculture?
A: Depends on if cell culture procedure is
involved in the process. Cultivation of entire
fungal body would be conventional farming.
Q: Is cell-based meat GMO?
A: Gene editigin is not required for cell culture. In
future, “designer meat” such as “allergen-free
meat” may require gene editing.
Q: Is it tasty?
A: It’s pasty (for now). In future, advanced tissue
engineering may enable complete reconstruction
of meat taste and texture and even go beyond.
Q: How quickly would “meat” grow?
A: Cells multiply every 1½~2 days. 1E5 cells
grow to visible size in 20~30 days. Flow process
in factories may enable continuous production.
Q: What will happen to farm animals?
A: They don’t disappear as starter cells would
still be required, but their number may decline.
Some past questions (part 2)
Q: Could meat be cocultured with probiotics?
A: Unknown. It depends on their growth rates and
mutual effect of cell metabolites.
Q: Why would people eat cell-based meat? 
A: Initially, vegans and environmentally-conscious
would consume, but at the end, taste, price and
convenience would decide.
Q: My kids should try DIY cell culture
A: Hardware and methods are open for public.
Please contact us for details.
Q: Desktop clean bench may help?
A: Egg white can suppress mould growth, but a
clean bench always help.
Q: What will happen to farmers?
A: Farmers may gain an opportunity to build a
brand around his/her cow cell and meat culture
recipe, but it depends on what business model
cellular agriculture companies take in the future.
Q: Is cell-based meat Halal/Kosher?
A: It may potentially become Halal/Kosher under
certain conditions, according to a publication:
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28456853
Q: Is it vegan?
A: Depends on technological maturity. Our DIY
procedure uses egg white as antimycotic and
therefore not vegan. In future, it depends on the
exact procedure of cell acquisition.

May be so in very short term, but... If “killing for public good” becomes the norm, no one is there to stop dictators → Is the utility maximized, in the long run? Utilitarian decision making is strongly dependent on subject and timeline“Runaway trolley problem” As it is, 5 will die. If you switch, only 1 will. Will you do it?

Q: I’m not a biologist but would like to join A: All disciplines welcome - multiple journalism, art & other non-sci/tech projects are ongoing Q: Where are carbon and nitrogen sourced? A: Culture medium contains sugar and amino acids. Amino acid is sourced from yeast which feed on sugar. In future, artificial photosynthesis and nitrogen fixation may take this role. Q: Is fungal farming cellular agriculture? A: Depends on if cell culture procedure is involved in the process. Cultivation of entire fungal body would be conventional farming. Q: Is cell-based meat GMO? A: Gene editigin is not required for cell culture. In future, “designer meat” such as “allergen-free meat” may require gene editing. Q: Is it tasty? A: It’s pasty (for now). In future, advanced tissue engineering may enable complete reconstruction of meat taste and texture and even go beyond. Q: How quickly would “meat” grow? A: Cells multiply every 1½~2 days. 1E5 cells grow to visible size in 20~30 days. Flow process in factories may enable continuous production. Q: What will happen to farm animals? A: They don’t disappear as starter cells would still be required, but their number may decline.
  • 123. Some past questions (part 2) Q: Could meat be cocultured with probiotics? A: Unknown. It depends on their growth rates and mutual effect of cell metabolites. Q: Why would people eat cell-based meat?  A: Initially, vegans and environmentally-conscious would consume, but at the end, taste, price and convenience would decide. Q: My kids should try DIY cell culture A: Hardware and methods are open for public. Please contact us for details. Q: Desktop clean bench may help? A: Egg white can suppress mould growth, but a clean bench always help. Q: What will happen to farmers? A: Farmers may gain an opportunity to build a brand around his/her cow cell and meat culture recipe, but it depends on what business model cellular agriculture companies take in the future. Q: Is cell-based meat Halal/Kosher? A: It may potentially become Halal/Kosher under certain conditions, according to a publication: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28456853 Q: Is it vegan? A: Depends on technological maturity. Our DIY procedure uses egg white as antimycotic and therefore not vegan. In future, it depends on the exact procedure of cell acquisition.
