Lab-grown meat promises a future of burgers, meatballs, and even foie gras, without the side order of animal suffering and environmental damage. But is fake meat a real solution to these problems? And will its success lead to the extinction of farm animals? If lab-grown meat is the ethical option, how can we persuade consumers to overcome their aversion to it? We discuss the science, ethics, and meaning of artificial meat.
