Meet the Meat

Some scientists are working on artificially grown meat, which would be "test-tube meat" rather than from dead animals. It's an interesting concept, and one with many ramifications. They claim it would have lower fat content. Plus it would eliminate the need for 40 billion smelly animals that are kept in poor farming conditions, and solve that tiny problem of world hunger.

What about vegetarians, eh? If you're a vegetarian, why? Obviously if you don't eat meat for a physiological reason or such, you would not eat this meat. But if it is just because you think that eating meat is wrong (since we're killing animals), would you eat this artificial meat (no animals were harmed during the making of this product).

Oh, and the universe runs on toast. Thank you. :)
