So I know this article is a few months old, but I stumbled on it today.
Basically, science has developed a way to create cow muscle in a lab from stem cells of cows. Professor Mark Post has been given 300,000 euros to create the world's first lab grown burger. He's not quite there yet, only growing strips a couple of millimetres thick and 2-3 centimetres long. Still he's getting there.
To me, this raises a lot of questions:
What would it mean for cattle farmers?
Would you eat a lab grown burger?
Would a vegetarian?
Is this research worth continuing?
I'm even more curious to hear what other food minded people make of this idea. If you have an opinion, please voice it!
