Scientists are on the verge of growing artificial meat in laboratories without the need for animal slaughter, according to a report cited Thursday by The Herald Sun -- with one expert predicting a stem cell sausage might be just six months away.I hope that slowly but surely we can make peace with our vegetarian friends.
Only two hurdles could be in the way, as I see it now:
- Does a sausage grown from a stem cell have a soul? Religious authorities will have to deal with this one.
- Stem cell: does it suffer when being fried, boiled or grilled? The Animal Liberation Front worthies will have to give us all an answer.
