World’s first lab-grown burger eaten by humans

An artificial beef burger grown by scientists in a laboratory was revealed in London yesterday. The burger was cooked by chef Richard McGowan, from Cornwall, and tasted by food critics. It’s thought that growing meat in labs may be kinder to the environment and reduce animal suffering. The meat is grown from just a few animal cells, so animals wouldn’t need to be killed to make the burgers. The sample burger cost about £250,000!

While the advance is impressive the taste review was not. Given the cost there is clearly more work to be done.
