The Fascinating Case For Eating Lab-Grown Meat

This is the future, folks.

We don't want to get alarmist on you, but the future of food production is moving out of the fields and into the labs -- just like science fiction predicted. It's clear with the onslaught of processed foods that have taken over our grocery aisles. It's further proven with new products like Soylent. And lab-grown meat is just one more step in that direction.

Before you wrinkle your nose at the idea, think about this: lab-grown meat is cheaper to produce (though not yet cheaper to buy), doesn't involve the slaughtering of animals, and uses fewer environmental resources. It does come at a cost though, which is blander meat. Find out why, and how it's produced, with this new video from Eater.

What are your thoughts? Would you eat it? Let us know in the comments below.
