According to this article meat grown in the lab would generate only a tiny fraction of the emissions produced from conventional livestock production making it a much greener alternative. Artificial meat, then could be an alternative for people who are worried about the environmental impact of their food but who do not want to give up eating meat. Researchers also believe that artificial meat could be the key to feeding the world’s growing population whilst reducing our impact on the environment. Analysts have found that lab grown meat would reduce greenhouse gases by up to 96% in comparison to raising animals and would require between 7% and 45% less energy than the same volume used to produce conventional meat. I guess the big question, however, is whether people would want to eat meat grown in a lab, particularly when people are becoming more concerned about where their food comes from and how it is produced.
