In Vitro Meat – Soon to be Served?

The discovery of stem cells in the 1980s opened the way for fresh perspectives on cellular engineering to create meat in a factory whithout the need for slaughtering animals. A team in the Netherlands is set to reveal the first in vitro hamburger, and an American company is developing an artificial piece of meat using ‘bio-printing’. Public research is under way as the technique may one day provide food for the entire globe and eliminate the harmful environmental effects of livestock farming and the slaughter of so many living creatures. But are these arguments strong enough to convince consumers to eat test-tube meat?
