Few animal cells are enough for the meat to grow and the biggest blessing is it does not require killing of animals. All one needs is animal cells and a petri dish for the meat fibers to grow in the lab.

According to Dr Mark Post, lab grown meat should be as safe as normal meat and it certainly is healthier for it contains less fat. This lab grown burger costs more than Ģ200,000 to make.
