 Meat Grown from Animal Cells in the Laboratory

A burger was grown in a laboratory made from tens of billions of cells of beef muscle-tissue. This burger is the creation of a food scientist from Holland.

As the population of the world grows, it will be very tough to produce adequate amounts of meat for everyone to eat. Experts are of the opinion that it may do a world of good to the environment, when meat is grown in labs. It can also help reduce the suffering to animals as well as bring a solution to problems like famines.

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.
