    Default "Test Tube Meat"

    So Noir, if given the option would you eat this type of meat since NO animals are injured or hurt?? I have mixed feelings on this....

    The world’s first test-tube hamburger, created in a Dutch laboratory by growing muscle fibres from bovine stem cells, will be ready to grill in October, scientists believe.
    “I am planning to ask Heston Blumenthal [the celebrity chef] to cook it,” Mark Post, leader of the artificial meat project at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, told the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting in Vancouver.

    Researchers believe that meat grown in factories, rather than on farms, will be a more sustainable and less environmentally harmful source of food. Live cattle and pigs are only 15 per cent efficient at converting vegetable proteins to meat from the grass and cereals they eat.
    “If we can raise the efficiency from 15 to 50 per cent by growing meat in the lab, that would be a tremendous leap forward,” Professor Post said.

    If meat was grown with no harm to animals i'd have no moral problem with eating it, however from a personal stance i don't much like the taste of a lot of meats so i still likey wouldn't eat it.

    There'll be lots of jokes in the restaurants about tube steaks...

    On a serious note, they'll have to come up with lab grown additives like saw dust so that Taco Bell can achieve its FDA approved 40% beef standard for their taco filling.
