How Lab-Grown Meat May Change Our World
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Dr. Mark Post, a researcher at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, served up a lab-grown hamburger patty for taste testing at an event in London in 2013. Now, the price of that patty has been scaled back from $325,000 to a much-more-affordable $11, Post told HuffPost Live. He added that his research could have serious environmental and ethical applications, as it suggests that lab-grown meat could replace animal consumption. "I think really the most important driver is the realization that livestock beef production has serious issues. It will not be able to match the demand in 2050 -- the global demand -- so we will have a shortage," Post said. "It comes at the expense of a lot of environmental damage, because cows emit methane. And there are increasing concerns about the animal welfare issues."  Carolyn Mattick, a fellow with the American Association for Advancement of Science, told HuffPost Live that in-vitro meat production would require just one-sixteenth ...

‘Test-Tube’ Hamburgers Now Cost Just $11.36 — Scientists Manage To Drastically Slash Price Of Lab-Grown Meat From $325,000
The Inquisitor - almost 2 years
“Test-tube” hamburgers may soon be an affordable reality as scientists have managed to drastically slash the cost of producing lab-grown meat. Two years back, test-tube hamburgers made headlines, but for two distinct reasons. While it was certainly a commendable feat creating meat in a laboratory, the burger patty that eventually was served cost $325,000. Though lab-grown meat was a great solution, the $325K burger wasn’t a viable solution to the increasingly unsustainable practice of cattle farming. However, scientists who have been working on making these test-tube hamburgers an affordable reality have announced a drastic cut in the cost of producing one of these patties. Researchers have managed to bring down the price tag to just a smidgen more than $11 per burger. In terms of production, scientists have succeeded in creating artificial meat that costs about $80 per kilogram. As an added bonus, the technique requires just a small piece of muscle to produce 10,000 kilos of la ...

Why We Can't Count On The Lab-Meat Burger To Solve World Hunger
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The hamburger grown from stem cells in a lab may have tasted kind of bad, but that didn't seem to dampen hopes for its revolutionary potential: "[Burger creator Mark] Post said that lab-cultured meat can play an important role in the future: Not only could it help feed the planet, but it also could help solve environmental problems stemming from conventional meat production," the Washington Post reported. "Scientists hope that being able to make meat in labs will help combat world hunger and slow climate change," one report's kicker read. In an editorial, Canada's Globe and Mail said the Frankenburger could become "a cheap supply of protein that could help reduce hunger around the world."

But Is It Kosher?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
(Reuters) - When the world's first test-tube beef burger was cooked and eaten this week, food critics all asked about its taste. For many Jews, Muslims and Hindus, the first question was whether their faith allowed them to try it. Religious websites were abuzz with questions and opinions this week after biologist Mark Post of Maastricht University presented his innovation to the media in London on Monday. "Is the lab-created burger kosher?" the Hasidic Jewish movement Chabad Lubavitch asked on its website. Dietary laws exist in many religions, but came about so long ago that not even their prophets could have imagined a ready-to-fry beef patty grown in-vitro from the stem cells of a cow. If religious authorities interpret their ancient texts in a way that allows them to give this new food their blessing, now-banned kosher cheeseburgers and Hindu hamburgers, as well as an undisputed method of producing halal meat, could be possible. Chabad's Rabbi Yehuda Shurpin ...

Steak of the Art: The Fatal Flaws of In Vitro Meat | The Crux
Discover Magazine - almost 5 years
Christina Agapakis is a synthetic biologist and postdoctoral research fellow at UCLA who blogs about about biology, engineering, biological engineering, and biologically inspired engineering at Oscillator. When you factor in the fertilizer needed to grow animal feed and the sheer volume of methane expelled by cows (mostly, though not entirely, from their mouths), a carnivore driving a Prius can contribute more to global warming than a vegan in a Hummer. Given the environmental toll of factory farming it’s easy to see why people get excited about the idea of meat grown in a lab, without fertilizer, feed corn, or burps. In this vision of the future, our steaks are grown in vats rather than in cows, with layers of cow cells nurtured on complex machinery to create a cruelty-free, sustainable meat alternative. The technology involved is today used mainly to grow cells for pharmaceutical development, but that hasn’t stopped several groups from experimenting with “in vitro meat,” as it’ ...
