CHARLESTON, South Carolina (Reuters) - In a small laboratory on an upper floor of the basic science building at the Medical University of South Carolina, Vladimir Mironov, M.D., Ph.D., has been working for a decade to grow meat.
A developmental biologist and tissue engineer, Dr. Mironov, 56, is one of only a few scientists worldwide involved in bioengineering "cultured" meat.
He envisions football field-sized buildings filled with large bioreactors, or bioreactors the size of a coffee machine in grocery stores, to manufacture what he calls "charlem" -- "Charleston engineered meat."

I would expect that from someone here...
I can't imagine how someone would just grow "meat" that just makes me feel sick. Of course, I guess SPAM can't be far behind what they're trying to grow...

Intresting, this would cut the animals some slack, no more torturing and killing animals in the intrest of eating them but I must say if it's bio what are the risks of eating it.
