As time goes on, world population is going to grow even larger, therefore the demand for foods will have to be even more vicious.  This notion along with other notions such as the explosion of livestock would produce higher amount of methane gas in the atmosphere and fast-track the global warming have scientists in Netherlands produce cow meats in lab.  According to Guardian, Dr. Mark Post, head of physiology at Maastricht University, plans to showcase a burger made from lab-grown meat.  The problem is that it is going to cost around £200,000 to produce a burger with lab-grown meat.  So, the people who cannot take the idea of having to see lab-grown meats to be sold in supermarkets, at least the super-expensive process of making lab-grown meats can assure these folks that they won’t see lab-grown meats in their supermarkets anytime soon.  My question to you is, to eat or not to eat lab-grown meats?
