Lab-Grown Burger!
Lab-Grown Burger!

Would you eat a burger made from meat grown in a lab? Two willing volunteers tasted just such a burger yesterday. They said the patty had the texture of meat, but was short on flavor because it lacked fat. One volunteer remarked, “I would say it’s close to meat. I miss the salt and pepper,” while another said, “The absence is the fat, it’s got a leanness to it, but the bite feels like a conventional hamburger.” Researchers say they hope it could eventually help feed the word and fight climate change. Uh huh, only if they can get people to want to eat test tube meat! Granted, they did already get two people to try it, now to convince the other millions! You better believe if I ever touch meat it’s coming from a living breathing creature.
