There are many like it, but this one is mine

As meat consumption around the world increases, so do the concerns over the sustainability and efficiency of meat production. Raising livestock is extremely inefficient - think 15 grams of vegetable protein in order to raise 100 grams of meat on average - and uses up valuable agricultural land and water resources while contributing to climate change.
Dutch scientist Mark Post has been working on a new way to grow meat - in a laboratory. He has successfully grown the world’s first “test tube burger” from billions of cow stem cells. While time-consuming and expensive, Post believes the production could eventually be expedited, allowing artificial meat products to become more common.
The test tube burger will be revealed and tasted in the upcoming weeks in London. Could this be the sustainable meat of the future?

Given the current outcry against GMO (that is, natural organisms with one or two genes altered), I can’t wait to see the shitstorm over PETRI DISH MEAT

    … isn’t that backwards? 100 grams of vegetable protein for 15 grams of meat? Because the other way around doesn’t sound...
