Pork Processing Causes Neurological Condition

Who's to say what health issues may be associated with the production or consumption of cultured meat. At least it would avoid situations like this:

Sickened Pork Workers Have New Nerve Disorder
"Eighteen pork plant workers in Minnesota, at least five in Indiana and one in Nebraska have come down with a mysterious neurological condition they appear to have contracted while removing brains from slaughtered pigs, U.S. researchers and health officials said on Wednesday."

"The first cases of the condition were reported in November of last year at Quality Pork Processors Inc in Austin, Minnesota, where workers had been using compressed air to blow pork brains out of the skull cavity."
