Lab Grown Meat: Untamed Science Video
This Week: Can You Grow Meat?
Did you know that with some high-tech lab techniques it is actually possible to grow muscle tissue in the lab – hence the topic “Lab Grown Meat”.
As it turns out, later this year Mark Post and fellow Dutch researchers are planning a big release of their lab grown hamburger. It’s a bit like culturing yogurt – well, sort of. A few cells could go a long ways, but what does this mean? Will this technology help improve the environment? Will people want to eat meat grown in the lab?
These are just a few questions you may find yourself asking. Fortunately, it’s the topic of this week’s Untamed Science video. Haley helps explain exactly what this is and how it’s done. Hopefully, it helps spur a great deal of conversation in the classroom and beyond.
