Is it really worth it?
SCIENTISTS have grown meat in the laboratory for the first time. Experts in Holland used cells from a live pig to replicate growth in a petri dish.
There's already an array of vegetarian meat substitutes that "reduce the billions of tons of greenhouse gases emitted each year by farm animals". I recognize that not everyone finds it an acceptable alternative to the real thing. But it doesn't sound like this stuff would be any better. And i would think the "ick" factor is much higher here.

I'd try it. Do you get super powers from the ensuing mutations?
I'd still try it.
It's a first step. There are some people, like, you know, me, for example, who will never be a vegetarian. But I can imagine a future where you can grow a steak in a petri dish that I wouldn't mind eating ;).
grown meat = no bones
how soon before they start the spam production?
