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, cultured meat, synthetic meat, tissue-engineered, vat meat, and 3D printed meat, it’s real meat taken from real cow stem cells and then propagated in massive quantities in the laboratories of big ag company manufacturers.

Who stands to benefit? What are the health safety issues? We’ll take a look at the pros and cons, the concerns and claims, the hopeful and the factual.
