We’ve discussed lab meat here before. It is weird, creepy, and probably unnecessary for most situations.
What is the point? Why do we need to have lab meat?
Some argue that it is more environmentally friendly source of protein than real meat, but so are vegetarian sources.
One thing is for sure…it certainly is not more cost effective. Because of the academic talent that goes into making lab-grown meat, the first labburger is expected to cost about £220,000 ($345,000)! For one burger!
I wish this type of money would be put into education and research for vegetarian alternatives to meat products to combat health and environmental problems. *sigh*
