Submission + - SPAM: Will In-Vitro Meat Let You Taste Extinct Species?

destinyland writes: This fascinating article describes eight ways in-vitro meat will change the world, including the ability to taste endangered animals and even extinct species like dinosaurs. "Future flesh" could also eliminate 51% of all human-caused greenhouse gas emissions (and 90% of choking victims), and "test tube steak" is also cheaper, healthier, and greener. (A quarter of the earth's land is currently used to grow meat, along with 8% of the world's water.) It could reduce animal-to-human diseases while eliminating artery-clogging saturated fats from our diets, replacing them with heart-healthy Omega-3 — while eliminating hormones and mercury (as well as e. coli and salmonella). And someone will finally claim PETA's $1 million prize for anyone who can market a competitive in-vitro meat by 2012.
