Would you eat artificial meat? (part II)

I already asked this question in a previous post, where I summed up the multiple advantages cultivated meat. This presentation provides a little more information about the challenges of growing meat -this can not be done efficiently at this point of time... meat is basically muscle, and muscles need some exercise in order to grow, which in turn requires energy.

But despite the challenges (and, potentially, your disgust at the thought of eating synthetic meat), the idea still has some appeal... like Mark states at the start of his presentation: 'a vegetarian in a hummer is much less damaging to the environment than a meat-eater on a bicycle'...
