World’s Largest Cloned Meat Factory | China Uncensored


On this episode of China Uncensored, China will do anything to “meat” market demand. Including… Hi, welcome to China Uncensored. I’m your host Chris Chappell. If you’re like me, you want answers to the questions that matter
most. “Where’s the beef?” Where’s the beef indeed. If you answered, “On a farm,” haha, that’s so cute. No, the beef is in Tianjin, China, where the world’s largest animal cloning facility
is under construction. Chinese genetics company BoyaLife wants to
be the first to take animal cloning to an industrial scale. BoyaLife’s 31 million dollar cloning plant
will go into production in 2016. It will start by producing 100,000 cloned
cows per year, eventually reaching one million. Holy Cow! Their goal is to provide 5 percent of the
meat eaten in China. You know, the meat that’s not rat meat falsely
labeled as lamb. Mmm, my mouth is already watering. So how does this cloning work? “A DNA strand like me is a blueprint for building
a living thing.” Actually in that case I believe it worked
like this. But here’s a better explanation. “Cloning is where you take all of the genetic
contents from one cell and move them somewhere else and reproduce them.” Helping BoyaLife is a joint venture partner: South Korean company Sooam Biotech. It’s run by a man once known as the “king
of cloning” until he was fired from the Seoul National
University for “research fraud and gross ethical lapses in the way he obtained
human eggs for his experiments.” So this new Chinese cloning plant is in good
hands. As for practical concerns like how will they manage to feed so many cattle? and what will the environmental impact be? Well, that was somehow left out of the BoyaLife
press release. Also left out of the press release: all the
ethical concerns. Cloned animal meat is a hugely controversial
topic in many countries. A topic BoyaLife dismissed with a single vague
sentence. In Europe, it’s illegal to sell cloned meat. Parliament voted to ban it because of human
health and animal welfare concerns. Which is why people freaked out when a lamb
crossed with a jellyfish was sold for meat in Paris. What’s the big deal? It’s like lamb with mint jelly, but all in
one. Now the long-term health affects of eating
cloned meat are unknown, though there is some evidence that cloned
animals may die earlier. In the US, the FDA says cloning can improve
the quality of animals and approved cloned meat for human consumption. No special labeling is required. So are you already eating cloned meat if you
live in the US? Well, since no special labeling is required
for cloned meat, how would you know? But according to the Guardian, most cloned
animals are used for breeding, not for food. Is there such debate in China? Well, the Chinese people might have concerns, but who cares? The government gave it thumbs up, so no debate. And why worry? BoyaLife’s chief executive said cloned beef
is “the tastiest beef I’ve had.” And I’m sure he’s totally unbiased. The US doesn’t import beef from China. But that’s because of concerns over quality. But as BoyaLife’s chief executive said, “We are going [down] a path that no one has
ever traveled.” And I’m sure everything will work out just
fine, like it always does in China. But for now, I think I’ll stick to a burger
made in the traditional way by grinding together 1,000 cows from five
different countries. I’m sorry! I’m lovin’ it! So would you eat cloned beef? Let me know what you think in the comment
section below. And please like this video and subscribe to
my channel. Once again I’m Chris Chappell, see you next
time.

  1. I don't see what's wrong with cloned meat….actually we would have to burn through our current beef supply as to avoid overpopulating the beef market. hut if properly regulated and of course, without poor conditions you wouldn't see any real difference. which is why breeding is better suited for clones since we'll. theres no real difference. so a perfect coined beef specimen would have children that are also perfect for eating.

  2. I might eat cloned meat if it wasn't made in China knowing them there might be giant mutated monsters destroying buildings and they would cover it up.

  3. What's wrong with cloned meat? It cuts out the diversity of meat cuts and could potentially give the meat and produce markets even weights and prices on what is sold. The only downside, is if they clone the animals down to a small Half life, to the point where they only live and age fully in a few months. I would assume the meat would spoil much quicker. But if they have a base clone or (Mother clone), it should be fine.

  4. I was hoping this was going to be about cultured meat, but instead it's just about cattle. Not your fault; I should have paid better attention I guess.

  5. I'm surprised that meat is not imported to the US from China, being that everything on the store shelves is now made in China. I'm not surprised that cloned meet in the US does not have to be labeled, being that money now controls what the government will allow by simply letting what ever company pays them the most, write what is allowed, and if it turns out to be a problem, then the "government" is blamed and not the political party that made it so, and certainly not the individuals that introduced the bill and not those that passed it, or their political party, or the lobbyist, as they will all just blame the "government", and of course, demand more tax cuts and blame it all on the current administration, but not the congress that over rid his veto! Never blame it on "deregulation., anti-government rhetoric, defunding, reducing the authority of the FDA or Citizens United or run amuck capitalism. And now they are clamoring for even more deregulation and tax cuts!

  6. Didnt Ah-Nold Swarzenigger in the 6th day and Cade Yeager in Bayformers: Age of Extoinktion teach us that "some things should never be invented"…

  7. I have any corn beef it was horrible it was stringing Gainey very tough hard to chew I don't recommend it

  8. The thing with cloned meat is- yes, I'd eat it… that is- if it was cloned to improve health, and provide better nutritional value. Cloning is a weapon of mass destruction in the wrong hands. Genetics overall is. In the right hands, it can be used to change an entire nation's people and their life styles, their intelligence, their body make up, their overall well being. If in the wrong hands, it can do the exact opposite, and poison people with cancers, serious diseases, and can destroy a nation.

  9. CHINA IS SECRETLY GOING TO MAKE AN ARMY OF CLONES (share the army with North Korea) THEN THE WEST WOULD COME UNDER ATTACK OF THE CLONES!!!!!!!!!!

    ba dum tsst 😉

    but of course AMERICA!!!!!!! will save the day as usual cause well you know AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. I wonder how safe the clone meat is…but then again, this isn't the first time you've heard of unsafe meat in China.

  11. That seems ridiculously dangerous. I mean, not the cloning per se, but having a large population of animals with the exact same genetic material is calling for trouble. There won't be differential resistance to pathogens, so if a cow gets sick, all cows are most definitely going to get sick as well.

  12. USA we been eating clone beef, and chicken for 1yr or more, read the Airlines, and other transportation services it does cause health problems

  13. Honestly, of all the horrible things China gets up to, this is probably the least objectionable. Cloned meat's fine and the fuss over GM crops, while perhaps warranted, is really over-blown. I'm more concerned with the conditions the cattle will grow in. Why bother with cloning whole cows when you can just grow slabs of meat for sale? You don't have to worry about feeding the damn things in that case!

  14. yeah right, a big deal, huh??
    come on people, if some Chinese die early because of this cloned food issue, the government will simply clone some citizens to make up the population. we Chinese all look the same after all. : P

  15. This is why Countries such as these are CENSORING information!
    It's time Americans start eating at home more often….and go vegan as much as possible!

  16. Maybe i'm in the wrong mood right now. but I cant imagine putting a cute quirky funny twist on this story. it's not funny for a second. how the fuck are we all supposed to know what the hell this shit is going to do to humans on a molecular level in the near future. I'm so sick of being a guinea pig for these corporate fuckers.

  17. I fail to see why cloned beef would be dangerous. We would've eaten the original cow so how is a genetically identical copy of it going to be dangerous?

  18. Other places, they're working on cloning beef at the cellular level. In other words, just the beef without the cow. Good idea?

  19. Cloned Animals may die earlier…..well thats…totaly unimportant considering they get butchered long before they would die of age anyway….I think thats not a bad Idea….when they find a real big and tasty cow to clone…why not…

  20. Anyone remember when the IK had cows with mad cow disease? That came about as a result of cattle farmers forcing their cows into cannibalism to as not to waste anything. Who's to say that cloned beef, chicken, pigs, lamb…..etc won't produce similar problems? If you really don't want to second guess if you're eating cloned meat, you could buy organic though.

  21. Well I guess this brings GMO's to a whole new level. I'm not sure what advantage (financial or otherwise) cloning will have over just breeding the hell out of the cows? It sounds like an interesting experiment China is conducting. Good thing I don't eat meat from China.

  22. Love how the comment section is filled with ppl that know nothing about genetics, much less cloning…If ppl dont bother wasting 20min of their life researching the net for answers why would they bother commenting here and wasting 2min just to show their ignorance.

  23. Eating cloned animals as well as genetically modified foods/genetically engineered foods are known as "Frankenfoods."  

    The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) urges doctors to prescribe non-GMO diets for all patients. They cite animal studies showing organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune system disorders, accelerated aging, and infertility. Human studies show how genetically modified (GM) food can leave material behind inside us, possibly causing long-term problems. Genes inserted into GM soy, for example, can transfer into the DNA of bacteria living inside us, and that the toxic insecticide produced by GM corn was found in the blood of pregnant women and their unborn fetuses.

    Numerous health problems increased after GMOs were introduced in 1996. The percentage of Americans with three or more chronic illnesses jumped from 7% to 13% in just 9 years; food allergies skyrocketed, and disorders such as autism, reproductive disorders, digestive problems, and others are on the rise. Although there is not sufficient research to confirm that GMOs are a contributing factor, doctors groups such as the AAEM tell us not to wait before we start protecting ourselves, and especially our children who are most at risk.

    The American Public Health Association and American Nurses Association are among many medical groups that condemn the use of GM bovine growth hormone, because the milk from treated cows has more of the hormone IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor 1)―which is linked to cancer.

  24. I dont know what the purpose of cloning cows is. It's still embryos developing into a cow so… why not just stick to breeding them?

  25. i m still eat that meat.
    but i will say no for human clone.
    human is human , and animal is animal. you can't change that fact

  26. Even if it is done, imagine a terrible hurricane, earthquake, or war. How could you keep feeding a mega city or population when such high-tech and un interrupted means of production are needed? You couldn't millions and possibly billions more would die.

  27. Huh.

    My initial gut reaction was, "that would be terribly uneconomic. It's way cheaper to just let cows reproduce naturally. In fact, the steers that become beef cattle are actually a secondary product…" and then my brain caught up with the fact that this is China, and they probably don't have dairy farms, because Chinese people don't drink milk or eat cheese on a regular basis. The poor dears. So I don't know, I still don't think cloning cattle for the purpose of producing beef is likely to be as economically viable as simply keeping a breeding stock and letting them reproduce. But I'm less sure of this now; after all, you have to feed the mother cow all through gestation, which I think is at least as long as for humans, maybe a bit longer. If you aren't doing that anyway for the milk… I don't know.

  28. I support the cloning beef, and think trade relations should be cut with Europe until they accept GMOs and Science fully, and also want sanctions on San Francisco too for being a bunch of cultic bitchy cunts fearing anything that is harmless. Seriously, when I lived there, I had AT&T for cell service, couldn't even get a freaken signal infront of the HQ building in the city, they told me it was because of the crazies afraid cellphones caused cancer did everything possible to keep phone companies from upgrading and installing new towers. You can't even advertise in many parts of the city. I'm fed up with these people, and call on the UN to pass a international treaty requiring these people to be tied to chairs and force-fed common GMO foods, and not let go till they finish three full meals…. don't care how long you sit there and sob, you can even starve for all I care, but your not getting up till you freaken eat your food and stop acting deranged.

    But in all seriousness, I'm for the standardization of food sources, and if you can make them naturally more resistant to decay, loss of nutrients, less likely to carry disease, and more pounds for the dollar produced, I'm all for it. I'd rather it be done grown in massive vats than mere cloning given you wouldn't be killing something conscious, but don't think we can pull that off in scale anytime soon. So meantime I am completely for raising the standards for food….. and if we gotta bomb Canada and Sweden to suppress those organic idiots to get there, I am all for that. That's like the cherry one top if anything. Seriously, we keep our bombers ready, president merely gotta tell the pilots they gotta go do their service to humanity.

  29. So Chris three years later, did this turn out to be like another typical Chinese pump-and-dump investment scam? (Cow clone factory)

  30. Cloned Meat is served at your Table America. Now eat up you Fucks. 🤡👹. THIS MESSAGE COMES FROM YOUR AMERICAN FOOD ADMINISTRATION KNOW AS THE FDA.

  31. Chris Crappie would criticise China if it even found the cure for cancer. So basically, Chris, you miserable fuck, go away and die a most painful death, you piece of rotting human excrement!!!
    (Same goes to New Tang Dynasty )

  32. Cloning may have the benefits of not having to raise the "bloody" animal in real time, kept in a matrix style simulation in a bio-environment and more tender meat!! It's a win-win scenario!! Oh…right…the electricity bill!!
