Scientist in South Carolina Developing Lab-Grown Meat Products

Would You Eat Homegrown Meat?

The food world has been in a tizzy today because of this article that describes a South Carolina scientist who's spent the past 10 years trying to grow meat. The "cultured" or in vitro-like process involves taking embryonic cells from a turkey and bathing them in a natural serum. The resulting lab-grown meat is more environmentally friendly and can be flavored to taste however the consumer wants, like lamb, pork, beef, etc. It's an interesting concept, and one that the scientist argues must catch on in order to avoid a future global food crisis. However, I don't know what to make of it. Would you eat meat that's grown in a laboratory?
