Last year, scientists created the world's first lab-grown burger — and by all accounts it didn't taste half bad. Sadly, the cost of a single patty ran upwards of $385,000. Now, European researchers have developed a small-scale manufacturing technique for synthetic meat that could eventually prove revolutionary.
With news that scientists have created stem cells that grow into pork, and the very real possibility of in-vitro meat becoming part of our diet, the inevitable question is raised: would it be kosher to eat lab bacon?
Want real meat that's completely cruelty free? For the first time, scientists have grown a pork chop in a laboratory, a breakthrough that could lead to a future of meat that could be harvested without killing animals.
