 Freedom from Hunger!! Stem Cells Make
Dutch scientists have used stem cells and succeeded in growing a pork chop in the lab.

The faux chop is made of 2cm long meat strips and is believed to have the texture of a scallop.

According to the Sun, researchers say this could be an eco-friendly alternative to farming livestock.

"If we took stem cells from one pig and multiplied it by a million, we'd need a million fewer pigs to get the same amount of meat," News.com.au quoted Mark Post of Maastricht University in the Netherlands, as saying.
