Who’s up for a $325K burger made from cultured muscle tissue cells? Anyone? Last chance? You sure?

- 2/22/2015, "Could test-tube meat be the future of food?", An article in the Green Prophet
Getting meat without killing animals is a concept that’s fast approaching reality. Lab-grown, or ‘cultured’, meat could resolve many of the environmental and ethical problems of the modern food industry. As unpalatable as it sounds –pioneering research is underway with at least 30 laboratories around the world involved in ‘in vitro’ meat research, including Tel Aviv University. But is there a market for ‘franken-meat’? - See more at: http://www.greenprophet.com/2015/02/lab-grown-test-tube-steak/#sthash.hwQlRNSJ.dpuf

All to feed people's appetites for 300 million tons of meat a year.
