There is a project to grow meat for food not on a farm but in a lab. Scientists are using animal stem cells to grow meat for human consumption in a lab. The project is still in the proof of concept stage. But it does offer some interesting options.

Grow your own food, its the only way of knowing where it came from.

Remember the 1973 Charlton Heston movie Soylent Green?

It scared me.
So one would wonder what might be growing in these so called labs. :)

Reminds me of a line from another tv show. "Its edible but I wouldn't call it food"

At the rate we keep losing farmland to developers, lab grown food will be all that susatains us in another 100 years.

I, too, remember Soylent Green. I can't believe that was 1973. :)

The article sure didn't make the $345,000 lab burger sound too appetizing. Very interesting...

Definitely not an item for the McDs dollar menu

"Pack enough of these (strips) together -- probably around 3,000 of them in layers -- throw in a few strips of lab-grown fat, and you have the world's first "cultured meat" burger..."

Just add some barbeque sauce, lettuce, tomato, onion, and cheese - Presto! Carl's Jr's. New Barbeque $345.000 Dollar Burger... ;)
