Re: Could vegetarians eat a 'test tube' burger?

Testing the forum, as much as anything else.

I note that this isn't really news as the same stories surfaced in 2009 with respect to pork being grown in a lab.

The moral/ethical issue of basing it on human flesh was covered nicely in a short story by Arthur C Clarke - Food of the Gods.

Still, it would be nice to see the issues thrashed out by a bunch of pros.

I forgot to add that in 2009 it was also being pushed as something which would reduce carbon emissions.
