    Yep, no issues - have eaten a wide and varied selection travelling / as a student.

    Boss Hog wouldn't - he's strictly McDonalds/Burger King.

    To be fair it is another first in Science, for the simple fact it is the first burger to contain 100% actual beef :icon_smile:

    Indeed. It's probably more of a burger than a Big Mac.

    My family and myself work in the meat industry, specifically butchers but we know people working in large meat processing plants. You would be surprised what is classed as edible meat and the ways they can get it, you'll definitely not find any ingredients in your local supermarket that's for sure!

    Yes! But bacon is not made from bits of animal that make me go yeugh!

    Neither is this new scientific burger! :icon_notworthy:

    I'd try anything once. Humanity may have to get used to science like this, with limited space and resources.

    As with many scientific discoveries, I strongly suspect that this whole thing came about by accident, a petri dish being the exact size and shape of a beefburger and all that... Expect the first test tube sausage any day now.

    At the end of the day - if they can produce meat grown in a lab that's nutritious and healthy then it could solve the crisis of world hunger.

    And it would save the slaughter of animals.

    All in all it's the future of how we will live, the next stage of our evolution and all that.

    Agreed, once you get over the mental hang-ups of where the food comes from and focus on how much is gained at a minimal cost to the environment, it's hard to argue against it.
