Motherless Meat: From Petri Dish to Plate

Would you eat meat cultured in a lab if it was guaranteed safe? Lab-grown meat is the new kid on the block when it comes to engineered food. Also known as in-vitro meat, it’s real meat developed from cow stem cells. With rising populations, the appetite to quickly develop this technology is strong. Should we be worried? What are the potential impacts on farmers and their cattle populations? Is it regulated? Who stands to benefit? What are the health safety issues? We’ll consider the pros and cons, the concerns and claims, the hopeful and the factual.
