There have been many reports in the news lately about lab grown beef. Some scientist over in the Netherlands is attempting to grow a hamburger in a petri dish from the stem cells of cattle. He claims that it will be beneficial because it will save animals. I don't know about you but I enjoy a delicious burger that is grown safely, naturally, and nutritiously.
He claims that he will have a full hamburger grown by this fall with a price tag of already over $330,000 invested. I feel that this will not be a very cheap hamburger. What is wrong with raising cattle for human consumption anyway? Not only does it provide a valuable protein for a balanced diet but it also provides many important and essential by products.
I personally feel that beef should be grown naturally and I don't believe growing a hamburger in a petri dish is very natural. Whether you agree or disagree I would love to hear your thoughts!
