Whether you prefer GMO-free foods or free-range raised animals, nowadays there’s a lot more choice when it comes to your meals. However, soon enough the only choice you’ll be making may be which lab you’d like your burger to come from. As soon as 2020, we could be enjoying a Big Mac made entirely of artificially manufactured meat.
One of the biggest reasons for this is that the cost of manufacturing lab-made meat has plunged significantly. While just a few years ago a lab-made hamburger could cost upwards of $300,000, Mosa Meat has made them for as little as $11.
Although it might be a few years before you host your very own lab-grown barbecue, there’s no doubt that artificial meat has some fascinating opportunities. Considering the average American eats an average of three hamburgers a week, this could help a lot of would-be vegetarians go totally meat-free.
