veal squared

Thanks to our scientist friend, Dave Miller, for sending in this article from the “New Scientist” concerning lab-grown meat. I believe we mentioned a few months ago that scientists had grown fish flesh in a bucket. Well, it looks like they’ve finally broken the “chicken barrier”!

Here’s my favorite quote:

Although the Touro team developed techniques for growing white and dark chicken muscle in the lab, without a blood supply the chicken meat grew for just two months before it was dead in the dish. Benjaminson is now submitting another NASA proposal to investigate mechanical or electrical methods of stimulating blood vessel growth.

“I’ll have a tube of the dark meat please. And make damned sure it’s not dead in the dish this time.”
